One in a million.

Hey there folks.  Matt here.  Just wanted to say thanks to everyone out there on the web.  Today is a bit of a milestone with the Beatle blog here.  We’ve hit 1 million hits today.  That’s pretty impressive considering we’ve only been at this since April of 2006!

Thanks to everyone who’s been along for the wonderful, weird, and wild ride.  Let’s work towards the next million.  We’ve come a really long way from our first blog post on April 13th, 2006.  It was about a little rumor about a new Beatles’ album called LOVE.

I know updates have been sparse this month, but life seems to get in the way at times.  Regular updates will be coming out more and more as soon as things calm down a bit around here.  For now though, thanks, for everyone’s wonderful comments, and emails, and the great sense of community that we’ve built here.  It’s been really cool.

I cannot wait for the next million.

Here’s a question for you.

I’m just glad that Paul’s family has given him their blessing with this relationship.

What are your thoughts on Paul and Nancy’s romance?  Let us know in the poll and comments below.

Here’s what we’ve read.

SIR PAUL McCARTNEY’s new love NANCY SHEVELL has moved in with the BEATLES legend – five months after his divorce from HEATHER MILLS.

Superstar Macca sought the blessing of BEATRICE, his four-year-old daughter by Mills, before asking Nancy to live at the sprawling Peasmarsh estate.

American heiress Nancy, 47, had begun spending nearly every weekend at the secluded East Sussex home, bought by Macca as a wedding gift for first wife LINDA in 1969.

But last week the No More Lonely Nights singer asked her to make the move permanent.
