  1. That's a great quote you chose from the middle. I bet it's like that for many people who have fame or big success at a young age.

  6. I have to be honest and say I'm not a major Beatles fan. I love some of their songs, they're great, but I don't go nuts about them. I like the sound of the F56 though. I hope you enjoy this one! Thanks for sharing :) I hope you have a great week!

I'm also posting early for two reasons, 1; work, and 2; a review posting tomorrow. Watch for that!
