It isn't funny really....

The tree planted as a memorial to George Harrison in Griffith Park LA has died due to being eaten by.....(wait for it)......beetles. (Boom-boom!)

The BBC have just announced this on the news. Unfortunately they reported it as a tree commemorating John Lennon! Come along Auntie Beeb, get your act together.

Donít look for the light at the end of the tunnel. Stomp along and switch the bl**dy thing on yourself.

Well, I think it is funny, and I'm pretty sure Beatle George would've appreciated the irony.

"It isn't funny really...."

sure it is...

Life is not measured by the number of breaths we take, but rather by the moments that take our breath away.
