Can't Buy Me Love

1) In this song, Beatle Paul offers to buy his girl a diamond ring. Do you wear rings? no

2) This song was written by boyhood friends John Lennon and Paul McCartney, who went on to become the most successful songwriters of the 20th century. Tell us about your best friend from "the old neighborhood." Do you know where he or she is today? my bestie and I have been friends since 1983 or so. We got super close in our college years and have maintained that closeness since.

3) The Ed Sullivan Theater, where the Beatles first performed to a mass American audience, is now the home of The Late Show with David Letterman. Do you have a favorite late night talk show? Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live

4) In 1964, when this song became #1, one of top TV shows was My Favorite Martian. Do you believe in life on other planets? not as such

5) In those days, homes had rotary dial phones, often affixed to the wall, with the receiver always tethered by a curly cord. Does your home still have a landline phone? yes, it does, as a matter of fact, I had to order a replacement phone from eBay to find just what I wanted.

6) 1964 was the year GI Joe first appeared on toy shelves. Tell us about one of your favorite childhood toys. other than Teddy, my favorite toy was a record player. I was typical in that I would play the same songs over and over and over.

7) Ringo was the first Beatle to become a grandfather. His granddaughter, Tatia, is now a rock musician. If you were to follow your grandfather into his chosen profession, what would you be doing now? I would be the owner-operator of a gas station and car wash.

8) Paul McCartney admits he enjoys watching MasterChef. What show do you go out of your way to catch? Lately it's been the nightly news.

9) The paparazzi has often caught Paul pedaling a bike around Martha's Vineyard. What's your favorite form of exercise? napping

I keep meaning to watch Andy. I see him interviewed on other shows and he looks like a party, just all on his own. (And he's a very knowledgeable baseball fan.)

RECORD PLAYER IS A GREAT ANSWER! Mine was running constantly in those days.

Napping! Gosh, I wish I'd known that was exercise.

Good for you for having such a long-time friend. I'm envious.

If napping is an exercise then I am getting plenty of that. Sure hope it is helping my heart!!

oh, dear, I think I need to exercise more! I like your way of thinking! I have been making a point of watching the Nightly News with Brian Williams. Get my info in, get to see him - he's hot. :)

I do like Andy Cohen. He genuinely has fun. I heard he kicks on the ratings too!

Oh, yes! I can see napping as a form of exercise that I would very much try to get into!!
