Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009, 2011, 2013)

i don't think the walk up Cadair Idris counts for much as it was just a training exercise for the inexperienced and unfit members of the group. the real mountaineers did not bother with small hills they just waited for the beast that is Snowdon

An alcohol free event in Ireland ! Sorry Ken that's never going to happen ! But if by some miracle it does it will just have to be 88 coca colas (diet of course .)

I have been reliably informed that a raffle has taken place to determine who buys the first round of eighty eight drinks and I am pleased to announce that Ken is the lucky winner .

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009, 2011, 2013)

To be sure I go for the walking
With a rucksack on my back
But I also go for the drinking
The friendship and the "Craic"
I cannot wait for September
Meet friends both old and new
I cannot wait until the day
I'll be with all of you

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009, 2011)

I have just found out we have a family wedding on Friday 20th September next year . Difficult decision to make and it took Jean and myself all of a couple of minutes to decide . Our apologies to the happy couple is in the post unless they want to get married in Ireland .

Record breaker

Leonard has made it into the Guiness Book of Records with the longest gap between albums in the UK charts . Old Ideas has got to number two forty years and eight months after songs of love and hate . Not only a genius but a record breaker as well!

Re: Hop Farm concert moved to Wembley?

Gosh, Phil... you appear to have judged him, anyway... going on appearances only. Nothing is really known, yet... however, it was put forth elsewhere that the choice was either not having a concert at all [at Hop Farm] due to unsustainability for some reason... or moving it to Wembley. It seems tha...

Re: Hop Farm concert moved to Wembley?

Hi Pironi
Now I am not an economist but it seems to me that cancelling two sell out concerts and all the costs involved in refunding tickets etc would only add to loses . I am trying my best not to be a little bit cynical but I think it is not as simple as that!

Re: Hop Farm concert moved to Wembley?

Although I have not booked for hop farm it still saddens me to read all the critical comments on Facebook . Admitted we do not know the reason for the change but if it turns out to be purely for financial reasons I am afraid it will reflect very badly on Leonard . As I have posted elsewhere on the f...

Re: LC Walking Weekend (2009, 2011)

Leonard’s Wisdom Wisdom! What is wisdom It could be “love and hate Or maybe it’s in “Recent Songs” After a “Songs from a room “ debate It started back in sixty-seven When wisdom was unique With “Songs of Leonard Cohen On life and love so bleak And then again in seventy-four Having followed seventy t...

Hi Diane
I have just sent you a pm . I would be grateful if you could resist the temptation to sunbath for just a moment to read it . Wales must be on a different planet to England because the only thing we are getting is rain,rain,rain

Phil, why have you deleted all the stuff about your postponed mining weekend:-(? I have Kate Bush off to a tee
Diane this has confused me a little . The coal mine thread is still there just no longer possible due to everybody attending concerts etc .
Btw where does Kate Bush fit in to all this ?

Re: HOP FARM (UK), 8 SEPT ON GENERAL SALE

I would just like to wish everyone who is going to hop farm an enjoyable concert . As a self-centred ,spoilt and demanding fan I personally prefer to wait and hope that next year there will be an indoor UK venue that I can afford to attend
