I, too , have returned over and over to the postings today, amazed by the breadth qnd depth of Leonard's admirers. I hosted a dinner meeting of my professional group tonight and we raised a toast in his honor. On the drive up to Wilmington it occured to me how appropriate for Lenoard's natal day to ...

Hi Lizzy! Actually, the posting is from the Belfast Telegraph 9/17, but it was Starter Kit, not list (my mistake). I just found a 2004 CD of Noel Harrison (son of Sir Rex Harrison) is an actor, singer songwriter who lives in, of all places, Los Angeles! He was a character on the Man from UNCLE, for ...

Starter list

Too short a list, for my taste. No "Ten New Songs"? No "The Future"? No Field Commander Cohen"? But not to worry -- a Leonard convert will soon fill out those bare bones! Lizzy -- your comment about covers brought back a sharp memory -- of Noel Harrison's winsome cover of "So Long Marianne", on his ...

women

Leonard adores women. I am a woman, and know about such things. I'll bet a whole lot of women on this forum will let you know they feel the same way. I believe Leonard is human, and fallible, and has at times been driven mad by women, too. Why, I myself, nearly a saint, have been driven mad my men a...

I think we owe Demetrius a break. I have seen enough of the homeless on both coasts and in te middle of our beautiful country to believe in hunger in America. I know many of these hungry are children. We have a country where the richest among us got $67K in tax breaks, while I, a noble nurse working...

This is a very northerly place for what used to be a southern spider :shock: . As a wound specialist I have seen a few of these, and my own brother got a bite (in Florida, where they are supposed to be found!). They like to hide in dark places and have been known to get into bedding that has gone un...

:lol: :o A lovely idea indeed, and a wonderful keepsake for us as well. An arresting and haunting photograph by Anjani. I just pre-ordered Dear Heather from amazon.com, and ordered one of Anjani's as well.

Thanks Jarkko!

Welcome, indeed, Beth! Your honesty is appreciated here. Many of us have the same feelings for our Leonard. In fact, one of his new songs on the CD to be released in the Fall, addresses our obsession. Some of us lucky folks who attended the New York LC event got to hear some of it. The mind is, afte...

Just in case anyone is interested, my New Jersey dentist bears a remarkable resemblance to Leonard. He also gives free investment advice. That, his wonderful work and very wierd sense of humor ( I once heard him say, in an adjacent room, "Hi honey. You're just as cute as a button. Who do you love mo...

Several of them appear in the biopic "In His Own Words" That are absoluteley , well, you know what I mean. He is in some very upscale hotel on pale upholstered furn...
