The Daily Quote, "Put out your cigarette, my love, you've been alone too long; and some of us are very hungry now, to hear what it is you've done that was so wrong."

They owed too much, Lenny. They thought they could bury their problem but not happened. Now they must be cringing at the testimony that's going to be against them. Soon. :lol:

Happy Birthday, Lenny!!

Dear Leonard

It was a joy to see you again at Dublin last week. When I saw you at the first Dublin concert in June 2008, I thought it would be the first and last time but I have been fortunate enough to attend several more of your amazing concerts since then and will do so again in Madrid next month.

I wish you a very happy birthday and a happy New Year too.

Love from
Helen

I first want to thank you for all the wonderful music and words! They really touched (and still touch) me so much.
For your birthday I wish you just the best for the future. I hope you have a great day with all your loved ones around you and a lot of joy!

Happy birthday, Leonard!

Dear Leonard,

I know he was your great friend, but he was wrong.

My life has changed numerous times because of your poems and songs and I would like to take this opportunity on your birthday to thank you. To thank you and wish you continuing health, happiness and the continued outpouring of your great gifts.

We look forward to seeing you in Austin.

Love,

Joe & Anne

Happy Birthday Mr. Cohen - Live long and prosper.

I thought, perhaps, I might take the opportunity to provide a musical travelogue for the next stop of the tour, for those unfamiliar with it.

Sending you A Thousand Kisses for your birthday Leonard.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful talents with us, and for spreading miles of smiles around the world.

An Irish Prayer

May God give you...
For every storm, a rainbow,
For every tear, a smile,
For every care, a promise,
And a blessing in each trial.
For every problem life sends,
A faithful friend to share,
For every sigh, a sweet song,
And an answer for each prayer.

May friends respect you,
Trouble neglect you,
The angels protect you,
And heaven accept you.

Love and Respect from Joan of Cork.
