Although I can't get you a present Gordon,you gave me the best present this year with your Jan 28th concert,the autographs and the picture I'll keep for ages.

Happy 69th to you sir. With much musical admiration & respect from a fellow lyric writer and former resident of lake Erie.

Char that is amazing. Lightfoot, Young and Mitchell in the same month. And here I always thought November was dark and gloomy here in the northland!

Yes I think last year I sent a message here saying Gord & Neil Young were born same month but 7 years apart, and 30 miles distant (Toronto/Orillia). Happy 69th Gordon, we are listening out here in the West too, just keep on doing what you do so well.

Horoscope - Nov 17, 2007

Thought for the Day: Mars, power and action, has begun its phase of retrograde motion and will continue along this backward path through to the end of January. It will produce feelings of restlessness that will ultimately lead to exciting implications if you are hoping to strike an important deal.

If today is your birthday: It is often said that there is no gain without pain. Well, you've certainly had more than your quota of suffering. It's time for payback. With Jupiter acting as your godfather this year, you are due to receive a big down payment on that long-awaited gain. Happy birthday to Gordon Lightfoot, 69.

* * *

Sadly, I could not find any articles about Gord or even a short acknowledgment of his birthday in any of the major Toronto or surrounding area newspapers. Even the Orillia Packet & Times ignored hometown son Gord over an article on Celine Dion. Only the CBC mentioned Gord by referring readers to it's archives.

How sad that we tend to ignore our own........

Happy Birthday Gord!!!!

Yuri

Hey, Yuri Gord's birthday was mentioned in our local paper page 2 where celebrity birthdays are listed each day. I have a niece who shares Gord's birthday as well, so the 17th is well represented here.

Another birthday horoscope:

Your personal ruling planets are Mars and Saturn.

You are very serious about reaching your goals and feel that keeping your nose to the grindstone is the only way to do it. Hard work, persistent effort, and concentration upon a single objective are the ways you achieve your aims in life. You exercise great self-control, even self-denial, in order to accomplish what you desire. You meet obstacles stoically and will struggle patiently through difficult circumstances. You feel that you must rely on yourself alone, that it's all on your shoulders, and you can be a harsh disciplinarian, expecting far too much from yourself and others.

Often you hold yourself back, doubting your own power and ability. You may feel that you meet great resistance whenever you try to assert yourself or take initiative, and that is very frustrating to you. However, you have the power of endurance and a dogged determination to overcome all obstacles.
