Cheers folks! I wish I had a picture of the expression on my face when I returned from Ireland and went to download my digital images - there were none saved, since before I went away. I thought I’d lost everything. Turned out my camera had decided to reset its date recorder to the beginning of 2012, so everything was there but in the wrong place. Quite fittingly Irish, really:-)

HLV, Bea:-)!

Thanks Ken, and thank you too for the all high-quality bootlegs - artwork, copying and packaging all done by you - that you handed out so generously (again). It is entirely due to you that I have Show Me the Place, live. Priceless.

Brid, I love your expressions in both my pictures and Wijbe’s. By the way, I’m wondering if you can post a link somewhere here, when available, to info on the forthcoming book of poetry to which you are a contributor.

Dear Diane, Amazing photographs! Looking at them I can feel the whole atmosphere, the air, the water, the drizzle, the sun and the people. Really wonderful. Thank you.

Diane - wonderful black and white shots as usual. I bet even the BVB stuff would look special without the yellow in your photos. Oops, I hope I didn't stimulate a certain nitwit to another of his out-of-place comments.

If these borussia dortmund football DEVILS want to discuss football wouldn't it be a lot better if they started a new thread or better still go to one of the thousands of already existing online football forums to indulge themselves…if these CLOWNS really want to discuss football such as bayern munich's magnificent treble last season consisting of winning the DFB pokal cup, becoming champions of the bundesliga by a unique record breaking 25 points or winning the european champions league or maybe even wishing bayern munich the best of luck now they are back on top of the bundesliga….then let them move on and let's keep this forum on topic by concentrating on all things leonard cohen…ta ken

oops!! sorry deanzy1 i'm only joking...i didn't realise you are new to the forum...with this walking thread you have wandered into one of the more light-hearted areas of the forum ...but it's true to a certain extent that i'm one of the fans whose appreciation and interest in leonard cohen has slowly been diminishing over recent years ...but i do have a letter of dispensation from jarkko our leader and webmaster allowing me to still hang around on the forum even though i never write, talk, blabber or twitter about leonard cohen....ta ken
