MTBFR Thanksgiving contest

Hello to Beatle friends around the globe!

This week here in the United States we will be celebrating Thanksgiving.   I want to take the time to say thank you to everyone that visits the "Meet the Beatles..For Real" blog.    I really have fun with this blog and I hope all of you do as well.  

To show my thanks to you viewers I purchased a few things for a contest.   I am sorry that I wasn't able to get amazing things for this Fall 2016 contest, but I hope you understand that I buy these prizes myself and I am not always able to get a hold of great Beatles things.

Prize A:
A copy of the book The Beatles and Me on Tour by Ivor Davis.   The book is signed by Ivor.   If you haven't read this book, it is one I recommend.    Ivor traveled as a journalist with the Beatles during their 1964 North American Tour and also was with them in 1965 when they met Elvis.   He is a great storyteller and his book is great!

Prize B:
One Beatles drum Christmas ornament (these are sold right now at Target) and a $15 gift card for Itunes.

If you would like to participate in the fall contest all you have to do is email me at and let me know if you are interested in Prize A or Prize B.   It is that easy!    I will have a notebook here next to the computer and as the emails come in, I will assign everyone a number.   Then on December 4, 2016 at 8:00pm (Central Time), I will use an online number generator to determine the winner.  

The contest is open to anyone and everyone, but only one entry per household.    The winner will have 48 hours from the time I announce the winner to contact me at the same email address with his/her address.   If I do not receive the address without the 48 hour time period, the prize is forfeited.

I also wanted to remind you all of two great opportunities to purchase Beatles items for your Beatle friends for Christmas or for yourself.

My book "Happiness is Seeing the Beatles:  Beatlemania in St. Louis" is selling out fast!   Only 130 copies remain of the 500 I had printed.   So if you wanted a copy of my book, now is the time to order!   They are $25 each and you can order them directly from the book website   I also have photographs of the Beatles and their family members for same on the site, so it is worth checking out!

If you are wanting to order the Beatles Yellow Submarine Lego set, please do so by clicking on the photo below.  You will be taken to the official Lego website.   It is set for the UK, so you if you live in another country, just change the region at the top of the page.   A small percentage of each sale of the Yellow Submarine Lego sets from my blog goes back to me and will be used to help keep the blog running.    So far no one has used this deal, but I know as Christmas is approaching, many people will want a Beatles Lego set.  

I again thank you all for your support.
Peace and Love,
Sara S.
