Arlene's Leonard Cohen Scrapbook -- First Year Anniversary Today -- July 19, 2011

Today happens to be the first year anniversary of Arlene's Leonard Cohen Scrapbook.  And there is an interesting connection with the Nashville post immediately below this one.

I recently found an email that I wrote the day after returning home from the San Jose concert (Nov 13, 2009) and totally forgot about.

Part of it was about Leonard Cohen's Nashville concert on November 5, 2009, which I posted below.  

The Nashville concert was the main impetus for starting my Leonard Cohen Scrapbook.
I was having trouble finding my own Nashville posts on the Leonard Cohen Forum because there were so many Nashville threads.

I felt I needed to collect all my own posts in one place for easy access. A Scrapbook blog seemed like a good idea.

Being a raw newbie, I turned for help to Dr HGuy aka Allan Showalter, überblogger of

I am grateful for his expert technical guidance, enduring patience and his many helpful suggestions (some of which were a tad racy...well he is wicked and warped.)

Beshert, destiny, that I found this particular email and wrote the Nashville report and posted it on the Leonard Cohen Forum today, July 19, 2011, the LC Scrapbook's first anniversary.
