    Apologies for not sending out a PM yesterday, hopefully all will be revealed why I was preoccupied last night ;)

    I think if we meet outside Liverpool Museum (now "World Museum Liverpool" - http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/wml/ ) on William Brown Street - at 10am (Jase gets in for about 9:20am ish, so we should have time even if the train is a little late), then we can go there for a short while or however long the group feels then walk to other places - Worlds Apart and FP, and maybe Liverpool dock if people so want.

    Map here - http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/wml/wmlmap.asp

    Anyone else coming who can't meet up at the said time/place, please PM and we can arrange to meet on our Liverpool tour :) :cool:

    Well I'm game for that :)





    .....oh though I have said elsewhere that I'll be there just after 10:05am, I've had a change of heart and decided not to be lazy and get a earlier train. See you all at ten :p

    Cool! :D And I am still confused (easily done :p ), we meeting you at Lime Street or Liverpool Museum? Jase checked his train time, and in a total reversal (since it is usually me) he actually is coming in for 9:57am and not 9:25am :p Still not as bad as thinking LFCC was April 1st and 2nd and actually booking for then, rather than July 1st and 2nd which are the actual dates (I hope) but don't tell anyone about that little mishap of mine lol! [face_shhh] :p

    Fab Four it is :D , which one is Ringo? I am not going to be Paul ok :p

    I would be Paul since I play bass, but I like eating meat and can't/won't sing so that cancles him out. [face_whistling]

    With these new times shown I guess 10am meet at the museum isn't possible now, so who what when where now?

    Don't worry lads! It only takes about 5 mins to walk from Lime Street to Liverpool Museum especially on the dodging crazy bus drivers part on the road inbetween (even for us oldies :p ), so no need to panic and we'll be there probs 10:15am at the latest unless Jase's "Watto's own brand" zimmer is having technical probs. If so I'll get out and push! :p

    Start getting bored waiting on those steps to cultural heaven, text me, and I can send some Jedi calming code back :p Otherwise know as we are nearly there, but not yet :p

    Feels like a car journey already! Are we nearly there yet Grandpa? :D

    Great meet guys :cool: :D Think it was very successful for what we had planned to do :p
    Enjoyed meeting you both, and here's to more successful days like that!

    Hehe, memorable moments that my sleep deprived brain can remember - "Bombs away!" (and that's all I am saying hehe *looks to sky for anti-yorkshiremen divebombers*), Jase trying to get a pic of a true Liverpudian, and the impromptu visit to hear the Beatles in the Cavern.

    And now I am a subway covert too :)
    I'll check thru pics tomorrow and post any good ones :) Fingers crossed the man in red will come out good.

    Edit: As far as FF-UK rules go, since there were three NW people at the meet (and one NE), this can be counted as an official NW meet, so thanks guys, we are moving closer to doing as much as the NE lot. Maybe we could one day have a NW vs NE pool game, and see if they can handle the hustlers from West Northshire!

    Dude, you seriouslaly need to post him even if it doesn't come out well. It's just the whole "tr00 scouser" factor of his excistance.

    Imagine there's no Heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one


    [face_peace]
