I have to admit to being a little dubious when it was announced years ago that LIVERPOOL INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT, or SPEKE AIRPORT as the locals called it, was going to be henceforth known as JOHN LENNON INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT. I just thought it was carrying things a little too far. I'd imagine John sitting on No:9 Cloud pissin' himself laughing. The BEATLES are worl famous and beloved throughout the world ,but it has to be said the hallowed city fathers n mothers havent always held them lovable local rogues in such high regard and for years made no effort to push the legend of the BEATLES. Then respectability is pronounced upon them somewhere along the line and airports are named after them.

I was reading that NEW ORLEANS INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT was going to celebrate SATCHMO himself. LOUIS ARMSTRONG wouldve been 100 years of age , so they were going to call the airport after the great man. not SATCHMO INT' AIRPORT, but , i'd imagine LOUIS ARMSTRONG INT' AIRPORT.....I can hear the famous cackle now. I'd imagine in his time he didnt get treated too respectably being a jazz player n' black! It does seem respectability is something that comes long long after you've popped your clogs, so theres hope for me yet.

But the ideas caught on naming airports after musicians and popstars, etc . Any chance of DUBLIN INT' AIRPORT being renamed JEDWARD INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT?..oh i do hope so!

Spekes new name is very fitting as it was probably the last thing he saw of Liverpool before he pissed off.

I was wondering if you ever thought of changing
the layout of your website? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.

Maybe you could space it out better?

What you said was actually very logical. However, what about this?
what if you added a little information? I mean, I don't want to tell you how to run your website, but suppose you added a title that grabbed people's attention?
You should peek at Yahoo's front page and see how they create article headlines to grab viewers to click. You might try adding a video or a related pic or two to grab readers interested about what you've
got to say. In my opinion, it might bring your website a little bit more interesting.

When I initially commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and
now each time a comment is added I get three emails with the
same comment. Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
Thanks a lot!
