That was my first reaction too, but then you see Leonard raising his cup/glass to the camera. Wonder what he was thinking, surely not that it would appear on YouTube!

Leonard is always gracious and polite, even when he is caught off guard or annoyed inside!

That's a joke, right?
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2014.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

No more so surely than the various meetings Forum members have contrived with Leonard, by fair means or foul!! He looks happy enough here.

Thank you, rpan, for the most interesting posts since the concerts ended.

Well! What about the "New Game for 2011" thread?? I'm on the edge of my seat with that one. :razz:

@ Anne, according to Jewish custom, you do not write out G-d's name in full because if you do, that piece of paper becomes holy and cannot be thrown in the trash (there is a specific way 'holy' papers are destroyed). So many of us don't do it, not because we feel it's wrong, but because it has been hammered into our heads from childhood. HTH



Thanks so much for clearing that up. I'm not overly religious, but couldn't help being curious about the many references to G-D. Makes perfect sense.
