goes right next to the venomous tentacular I believe in the Harry Potter "Creatures That Will KIll You and Have Funny Names" book :P

Great photos for this years contest, "Old Town" looks like a seen out of an anime film. Some of the stories behind the images though are heartbreaking.

10 experience points G.C. for the clever news post.

"Abbey Road" was the last true Beatles album. :-)

Firstly, well done GC!!

Secondly Abbey Road was recorded AFTER the Let It Be album, so it truly was the last Beatles album.
