Once Upon A Time, Before 1HeckOfAGuy.com Became The Ne Plus Ultra of Leonard Cohen Sites…
This site held other attractions, including special Christmas posts. Indeed, Heck Of A Guy has been around long enough to accumulate quite a few holiday posts worth sharing. Today’s offering features an old-fashioned holiday snow globe that goes back eight full years (who remembers 2006? wasn’t it great?).
The Heck Of A Guy Snow Globe was first posted December 20, 2006, accompanied by this description:
… the Heck Of A Guy blog now offers, for your viewing pleasure and DrHGuy’s (much deserved) aggrandizement, the perpetually post-shaken snowstorm simulation we like to call One Heck Of A Snow Globe
Ongoing readers may recall that last week, I promised DrHGuy.com & 1HeckOfAGuy.com Changes To Be Announced Nov 3, 2014. As I was preparing that post yesterday, however, I received word that commitments that had been made to me could not be kept. I spent the remainder of the day attempting to renegotiate the arrangement, but this effort was unrequited.
Consequently, the anticipated proclamation will not take place. I apologize and assure you no one is more disappointed than I am.
DrHGuy is taking today off to join in the festivities celebrating the double holiday of All Saints Day and his birthday.

Posting is temporarily halted to allow routine maintenance and implementation of improvements on the Heck Of A Guy web site. The fixes. updates, and additions, while invisible to visitors, will make the site run faster and more reliably. We plan to return to business tomorrow.
Things have been, as readers may have noticed, a tad hectic in Cohen World the past month, what with 80th birthday commemorations and a new album being released. (BTW, Leonard, don’t even think about pulling this same stunt on your 90th birthday.) Consequently, DrHGuy is going on R&R to recover his sardonic zing.
