Friday at last!

The weekend is here at last, it's not actually raining at the moment so it's all looking good!

Lennon Lyrics
A handwritten lyric sheet for "All You Need is Love" used by John Lennon in 1967 was sold for 600,000 pounds at an auction in London on Thursday, organisers said.
The manuscript was part of a pop memorabilia sale featuring clothes, paintings and musical instruments from Lennon, Jimi Hendrix and others.

The "All You Need Is Love" lyric sheet was used by Lennon during a television performance by the Beatles and could be seen on film footage dropping to the floor after the song was performed, said a spokesman for auctioneers Cooper Owen.

A girl working for the BBC at the time retrieved the manuscript from beneath Lennon's music stand. She provided a letter of authenticity for Thursday's sale.

Can you imagine how she feels today? One scrap of A5 paper is now worth £600k...
