    Eurostar Trains Celebrate Beatles

    LONDON (AP) - It may not be a submarine, but it does travel 
    underwater.
    
    The Eurostar train system unveiled a special Beatles Express 
    on Wednesday in honor of the reissue of the band's 1968 
    cinematic landmark, ``The Yellow Submarine.''
    
    The brilliantly adorned Express pulled out of London's Waterloo 
    station for its inaugural trip under the English Channel and on 
    to Paris. The service will run three times a day between London, 
    Paris and Brussels until December.
    
    All 18 Express carriages are decorated with psychedelic images 
    from the film, in which the Beatles travel in a magical Yellow 
    Submarine to Pepperland and liberate the country from the 
    music-hating Blue Meanies.
    
    ``I think it looks absolutely brilliant,'' said Bridget Hearne, 
    55, from Glastonbury, Somerset, who boarded the train with her 
    daughter. ``We only booked up yesterday for a three-day trip 
    to Paris and had no idea we'd be on a Beatles train.''
    
    Former Beatle Paul McCartney said passengers just may see him 
    on the Express.
    
    ``I won't go on ceremony,'' he said. ``I'll just show up on it 
    one day.''
    
    ``Yellow Submarine'' is being relaunched as a home video, a 
    digital video disc and a remixed CD soundtrack next week.

    VH1 will be celebrating the 100 greatest women in 
    rock all this month beginning Monday, July 26th
    at 9 PM ET. We asked who would you pick and you

    with what the fans think ... 
    
    
    1. ARETHA FRANKLIN 
    VH1 has never loved a women the way we love ... 
    Aretha. 
    
    2. TINA TURNER 
    Simply one place away from the best. 
    
    3. JANIS JOPLIN 
    When God made Janis, he broke the mold. Rock's 
    been looking for the pieces ever since. 
    
    4. BONNIE RAITT 
    At long last recognition for the woman who is 
    to the blues guitar what her hairdresser is 
    to redheads. 
    
    5. JONI MITCHELL 
    Because songs are still like tattoos. 
    
    6. BILLIE HOLIDAY 
    Sex, drugs and never-bluer blues. Billie was 
    rock 'n' roll before anyone knew what the 
    phrase meant. 
    
    7. CHRISSIE HYNDE 
    From Ohio she came to save the world from 
    mediocrity. 
    
    8. MADONNA 
    Is there something more than immaterial about 
    the material girl? We think so. 
    
    9. ANNIE LENNOX 
    She brought soul to the machine-led music of 
    the '80s and declared sisters were doin' it 
    for themselves. 
    
    10. CAROLE KING 
    The prime weaver of rock's Tapestry wrote some 
    of the best songs of all time and took them to 
    the stage. The Lilith generation listened.

         Susan M. Osborn, Ph.D. - LifeThread Publications - 
         ISBN 0-9655368-0-7 - trade 174 pages
    
         This book is different in a very special way.  
         Yes, you'll learn the typical life affirming 
         schmoogle that will serve to make each day's 
         burden a little bit lighter.  But there 
         are lots of books that can teach you coping 
         mechanisms for home or work.  This book is unique
         in a sea of titles clamoring for attention.
    
         You go on a journey with a narrator named Sunny.  
         She has been there, done that, and will lead you 
         along the path to your personal fulfillment.
         You get frank, down to earth, practical insights 
         served up with a modicum of spirituality.
    
         A lovely book.
