    (Another post about posts, eh?)

    The film "Yellow Submarine" underwent restoration work in 1998 for release in 1999. Since it was the original British version that was restored, U.S. audiences got see the five minutes of footage that had been missing in the original 85 minute U.S. release version.
    (Oooooh, a triple! :))

    Not one of the Beatles voices actually featured in the cartoon segments of Yellow Submarine. They were all provided by voice artists - including Geoffrey Hughes who later went on to become Eddie Yates in long-running British soap Coronation Street and Onslow in the BBC comedy Keeping Up Appearances. :)

    They're called soap operas because they were originally sponsored by the makers of laundry detergents in the early days of television.

    The natural scent of citronella oil will supposedly deter cats from fouling areas in your garden :)

    The Pentagon, in Arlington, Virginia, has twice as many bathrooms as necessary...
    When it was built in the 1940's, the state of Virginia stll had segregation laws requiring seperate toilet facilities for blacks and whites...

    There was once a town named "6" in West Virginia.

    (Nine went there and turned it on its head.)

    I might be wrong, but I don't think Nine has ever been in any Virginia.
