The The Daily Teaser — 22-3-2015: Introducing The Beatles … 

Hmmm … 

Looks like I can do that … 

Sorry, I’ve been playing with my new phone, again … !

Turns out I can take photos: which you possibly guessed, hadn’t you … ?

These day’s, that’s a given.

But the camera on it?   Is one of those that can take panoramic photos.

Like the one I took, on Crown Street: just behind Brentwood High Street.

Hmm … 

Nice to have, I think.

Although how much use it is to me?

Well, only time will tell … 


But let’s move on, shall we?

Yestesterday’s Teaser saw Debbi* putting in her answers: and scoring five out of five.

Timothy Leary.
And the band’s best selling single … 

Enjoy your day …
