Hi Jarkko,

Hope your birthday brings you a smile. May your next year be filled with much more good than bad. Thank you for all you do for the Cohen community and all the smiles you have given us.

Thanks for the good wishes, Marie! Strange to be at 70 already - it's amazing how quickly the years are passing...
And thanks to all friends who have sent emails, SMSs and WhatsUp messages!

Happy Birthday, Dear Jarkko,
Now you know how it feels to be 70 ;-) But really, it’s only a number after all!
And speaking of numbers, the more you have of these is a good thing!

Heartfelt thanks for all you do for us. Just have the best day!

How terribly strange to be seventy.
Paul Simon (Old Friends) got it wrong, it's not strange at all.
Hearty congratulations, Jarkko and I wish you many more Happy Birthdays.
Many thanks for your work in the land of Cohen fandom.

Too much Leonard Cohen is never enough.
