"And there is a mighty judgement coming"... Or whatever it is; we'll see... ;-)

Edit: Have you noticed btw how Jarkko now masterly applies the "cliffhanger" effect?! "Stay tuned"... Oh dear, as if we weren't hooked on the forum already... :)

I guess this Big Announcement is the reason for the suspension marks in Jarkko's signature... ;-)

Okay. let's take a guess...Leonard thinks it's a great idea to play all of his albums live. Therefore he'll be playing each one exclusively for forum members in the hometown of the person who first suggested it. Great! I look forward to coming to as many of these as possible, and especially "Recent Songs" in London!

I HAVE IT!.....

Leonard is hiring the new ship Queen Mary 2 for a special week's cruise for all the members of the Forum who joined up to a minute ago. The first 3056 (number of berths) who apply to Ticketmaster (password AVAST BEHIND) will be able to buy tickets at the knockdown price of 100 of whatever your currency is. Leonard and the band will then put on a show every night for an hour or so and then we will all get totally ratted on a free ration of rum. Jarkko is going to be captain, with the rest of the moderators as the crew (to make sure we don't end up sailing in every decreasing circles round the Bay of Biscay). I am still working out the rest of the details and will get back to you when I find out how to untie this white thing they are wrapping round me...... have patience........

Or could it be the invitation to Leonard's birthday party for forum members attending the Barcelona event, or the special concert in New York to tie in with the unveiling of the Chelsea Hotel plaque? If it's either of these, I will just have to pray for Divine providence!

All good things, John E

Yes John, and songs of love and hate in rural kent

(the Webb Sisters are from Kent, don't ya know, someone whispered that in my ear last weekend in Surrey).
