Re: So long Leonard...

Womanfromaroom, Rodin is what is called, in Internet parlance, a 'troll'. I'm sure all of us who contributed to this thread could have answered him the way you did, but I think we all (I know I did although I was itching to) deliberately refrained from answering him because that would have been 'fee...

Re: Nice, France (July 22)

I posted a short article and two pics that were published in Nice-Matin - in the News section of this Forum. The concert was a great success; the French word for that is 'Un tabac'. LC a fait un tabac à Nice!

Re: So long Leonard...

lol Bela, I also looked back and got shivers thinking what it would have been like for you there. I scanned the crowd and imagined you in 106 and hoped you were having a good time. :) As far as the other thing, lol, we are in complete agreement.

People were endlessly asking...
