Q: “Are you going to move out of the country, back to…”

RINGO: “Yes, we’re moving back to town.”

Q: “Basically because you like town, or for the kids?”

RINGO: “Well, we’ve been in the country now for five years. We’ve been to Weybridge for four, and then we moved to Elstead. And it was just a drag coming into town everyday in the car, you know. It took and hour and a half, and then an hour and a half to get out again. So I just hated the idea of three hours a day of my life wasted; sitting in a car. And also, it’s better for Maureen if we come into town because… at least I go into the office and do, you know, see alot of people. Whereas I think she’s getting a bit fed-up with being stuck out in the country. So if we’re in town then she can leap about as much as I do, you know.”

Q: “Zak is, what, four?”

RINGO: “Yes, he’s four now.”

Q: “Jason’s two.”

RINGO: “So we need to get settled by early next year so he can start school, which is a drag ‘cuz I don’t want him to go. (laughs) You know, because I think the way 'I’m’ bringing them up is right. And you can get all that rubbish from teachers, you know, where they– it’s like the Army where they make everyone the same, and just shove all those useless facts into his head. And that’s the bit I don’t like.”

Q: “How are you bringing them up?”

RINGO: “Very nicely, thank you.” (laughs)

Q: “Yeah, but I mean what’s your system, or…?”

RINGO: “Well, I don’t know– I’m just bringing them up, you know. I mean, I don’t have a system. I just try and tell him what’s right, and try and keep him alive. I mean, that’s what I find with the first… well, still with Zak, but especially when they’re two to three, and that. Just keeping them alive is hard enough because of the things they get into, 'cuz they’re experiencing everything. Like, climbing up the walls, you know, trying not to sort of do anything. But you’ve got to be near enough so you can leap over there if he falls off, you know. Just things like that. All you can do is love them, you know, and answer their questions, which sometimes drive you nuts. All that, 'Why?’ 'Well…’ you answer. 'Why?’ (laughs) And there’s always a 'Why’ to whatever you say. And the great scene about electricity– I went on for hours, and all he said was 'Why,’ and you know, when you don’t know about it– 'cuz he was trying to put his fingers in the plug, and I was saying, 'Now, don’t do that, 'cuz that’s electricity and you’ll end up as a puff of blue smoke.’”
