Wishing you all a Happy new year!

I wish all readers of the Meet the Beatles for Real blog a happy, healthy and safe new year! I am a little "freaked out" because I do not have very much in the works for January for this blog. I usually have a back-log of photos and stories planned for each month, and for the first time in the 2 1/2 years I have been doing this, I do not have enough material for the entire month. So if you have something you would like to share, a photo or story, please by all means send me an email! In the meantime I will keep searching for things and most likely will find many Beatle goodies.

I hope each of you have a great 2012. Anyone have any Beatle plans for the new year? I am beginning to save money for a trip to Liverpool and Hamburg in 2013. My biggest plan for 2012 is to lose a substantial amount of weight. I am going to do this by rewarding myself with Beatle goodies (such as DVDs and books) for every 20 pounds I lose. I hope this actually motivates me. Thanks again to everyone for the support of this blog and for putting up with this fat girl in Illinois who teaches reading and is a little too obsessed with the Beatles.


  1. dear sara, i wish you and all my friends at your blog a wonderful 2012! like you, i am determined to lose weight this year, and have been on an eating plan with a nutritionist for the past 2 months. hard as it is, there is life without chocolate! i can't let a brownie rule my head - i am stronger than that! all my loving, i will send to you.

  2. Good luck to all those that would like to have a few pounds less around their waists - I`m among them!
    A healthy & happy 2012 everybody!

  3. I'm planning on losing (if you'll pardon the expression) a good chunk of weight this year, too.

    Don't worry about the shortage of Beatles photos Sara, just post what you can when you can. We'll still keep coming back! I'll always try and keep a look out for anything you might not have.

    Best wishes for 2012 to you and all the readers of this blog. :)

  4. Happy New Year to all you Beatles fanatics out there. I know I'll be visiting your site daily, Sara. I wish I had something to contribute.

  5. Good luck with your New Year's resolution! I'm sorry that I don't have material to submit, but if I find something appropriate, I'll send it your way!

    I have some pretty exciting Beatles plans this year, actually ... in March, I'm going to England to visit my sister. I went when I was 7, but I don't remember it, so this will basically be my first time!! I'm going to spend 2 days in Liverpool seeing everything, and then a week in London!! I am absolutely psyched. :)

    PS: George is adorable in that picture. Who let him try to open up the champagne bottle? He looks befuddled. :)

    Will we be fortunate to see many nice Beatle-site photos upon your return?

  7. @since 1963: Absolutely! I will take lots and lots of pictures, and I'll post them to my blog, since I suppose they aren't appropriate for this one, seeing as none of the Beatles will be in them (unless I happen to run into Paul at MPL, but if that happens you might not see any pictures, since I'd be dead from shock).
