Re: MONTREAL: More information for the members

How I wish I could join in this event but unfortunately I have two important hospital appointments on 7th November which I cannot cancel. I will be with you in spirit. I know there are many people that feel the same. I am sorry you can't be there, but I will be thinking of you all. I would have rat...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hello -- There is so much activity here on the site that I feel our little thread is getting blown away. I have been wanting to post about Live in Dublin... even though I said I wouldn't... and now, the whole site is blowing up with the event in Montreal. We will not all be there. But we are all sti...

Re: MONTREAL: TICKET & PRESALE INFO

Marie/Jarkko, or anyone with experience here- Sorry for asking at such a busy time, but I need some help. We have our plane tickets and accommodations, but I am trying to give directions to someone else to order the tickets for me, because I will be working. I am a public school librarian, and the p...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Tick-tock.... tick-tock. I wish all of us (B4, 4, Alan, Jean, and myself) and our significant others were going to Montreal in November! It's just one hour before the tickets go on sale, or the announcement is made... I am not sure which. If someone told me a year ago that I would be sitting here co...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

That first part of my signature is meant as a comment on my avatar picture. Well, I have loved that since I first read it. Nice job. I am editing this (and hope you see it) to ask if you could post a larger picture of your avatar? Please forgive the deviation from our thread, but I also wanted to s...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I don't think you noticed my post on this page above with some links for you to buy the DVD you wanted of Live in Dublin... Well, I did notice it but assumed till now (stuck in travel limbo at the Boise airport for 4 hours with time to peruse things) that they were DVDs in the format that only play...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Crisis averted. .... I found an interview on CBC from 1980 with Patrick Watson from the 'Authors' series where his expressions say as much as his words.
Sorry for the 'all call'
Thanks!

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

4--- You have never talked too much! Here is hoping your hiatus will be brief! Everyone else - If you are available please help me. I am at a hotel in Boise tonight because of a work conference, and I have internet access! I mean real internet access!! At home I have no choice but satellite internet...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Feeling a little crazy tonight. I am uncomfortable with my posts lately, and then today at a regional librarian meeting, we were asked to participate in one of those let's-get-to-know-each-other things, where they go around the room and everyone shares something. This time, everyone was asked to nam...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Please don’t take my reluctance to comment on the live albums as anything more than my own sour grapes. I will get over it. Any of you who are parents here know that feeling that you get when all of the sudden your child has grown to adulthood, as if behind your back. That feeling of “Wait a minute....

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

4, I agree with Mary (and thank you for joining us MaryB!). Your opinions of the songs on Live in Dublin and your flashbacks have added much to my imagination of what it might have been like. I really do appreciate that you took the time for this post. I was going to comment on some of the songs, bu...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I was nearly going to say something when Vickie commented on the first one but I thought I'd wait until someone twigged to the second one, Victoria ;-) Interesting where the images came from. The background reminded me so much of the red rock formations in Sedona, but they are obviously out of this...
