A hobbit Hello

Post#1 » Sat Mar 22, 2008 3:06 am

Hi I am Fortinbras from Hobbiton.
I have been a fan of everything Tolkien since the Seventies. I am old and learned in the Lore of Middle Earth. I was once credited as School Master of the Hobbiton Elementary School.
I have been collecting all things Tolkien for many years and have a large collection of books, figurines, posters, maps, pewter, cards, toy figures, chess sets and other odds and ends.
I am a Tolkien Fanatic and am proud to be one.

Reading Tolkien's books is a pleasure I have enjoyed over the years and I find many worthwhile messages to be found in the texts about life and its struggles and triumphs.

"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us."

Study, read and collect Tolkien and enjoy the journey.

I am looking forward to meeting like minded people here on the Planet.

I feel like I've just met a new circle of friends.

I hope I get to work out how to add those smileys.

Thanks for the welcomes.

I like to write poems...
Have a look in Journal Entries.
Hope I'm not too NERDY...I am a former schoolmaster after all.

Fortinbras: may we call you Fort for short?

RE our Smilies: While in the input mode, look for the yellow star icon above input box and click on it; after a while you will memorize the written code between the two colons and won't always have to rely on the star icon. One word of warning, the added smilie always is posted at the end of your post no matter where you left your cursor, so you will have to copy and paste to move it if you are adding it as an after thought.

RE your poetry: I hardly ever read the journals; enough to read in the forums. We do have a Writers Guild where a lot of poetry is posted and I do check that for new posts, which I will read daily.

FORT,
I'm comfortable with that. :cool:

I'll try to move that poem to Writer's Guild.
I've noticed that a lot of postings are fairly old.
I hope over time the revelation of a new movie will bring old and new to the Planet.

In the future I hope I can contribute to the site in a positive way.
Has anyone heard the latest updates re Tolkien Estate V New Line.
Will The Hobbit be made? :question:

I haven't heard anything new, but it should be posted under Hobbit Movie News if anyone does hear anything new. I may look for e something later and if I remember to.
