Alas, Flower, the gallery is down right now--it evidently costs beaucoup $$$ to keep those image files online. In its place is a request for a few more Premier Members, to allow Jon and Ted to bring it back online.<BR><BR>Glog is a Scandanavian way of making more Scandinavians. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> And it involves rye whiskey, red wine, and overproof rum.

Thanks for the info Ax...I figured the gallery was down. And I really wish I could help out by becoming a premier member...the only problem is I'm not working right now and I have no momey at all. Once I start working, however, I'd love to help support this website! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Oh, and this "glog" sounds good...hehe ~.^<BR><BR>BTW, in case I'm not on tomorrow (which I probably will be...I'm on every day) have yourselves a great Christmas, or whatever holiday you celebrate. ^.^<BR><BR>Auf Wiedersehen!<BR><BR>Meggz<BR><BR>P.S....just noticed I reciieved another sword underneath my name...yay me! hehe... <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

I love that song, especially "fuel" with three syllables. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> We're going to a friend's house later today--they're actually celebrating St. Stephen's day, which is interesting in and of itself, but more so in that they're all nice pagans. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> I guess it's the Hungarian thing to do.

(continues song, still off-key ...)<BR><i>... when a poor man came in sight,<BR>gath'ring winter fu - ue - l !</i><BR><BR>Yeah! I love that part too!<BR><BR>Axordil, not just Hungarians; Stephen is a popular saint throughout Central Europe. Many of the observances have pagan roots, which may make your friends happier. Here is more than you all probably ever wanted to know (from an internet site concerning saints):<BR><BR><i><BR>From early times this saint was venerated as patron of horses. Though there is no historical basis for this association with horses in the life of Saint Stephen, various explanations have been attempted. Some are founded on ancient Germanic ritual celebrations of horse sacrifices at Yuletide. Others use the fact that in medieval times "Twelfth Night" (Christmas to Epiphany) was a time of rest for domestic animals, and horses, as the most useful servants of man, were accorded at the beginning of this fortnight something like a feast day of their own.<BR><BR>It was a general practice among the farmers in Europe to decorate their horses on Stephen's Day, and bring them to the house of God to be blessed by the priest and afterward ridden three times around the church, a custom still observed in many rural sections. Later in the day the whole family takes a gay ride in a wagon or sleigh (Saint Stephen's ride).<BR><BR>Horses' food, mostly hay and oats, is blessed on Stephen's Day. Inspired by pre-Christmas fertility rites people threw kernels of these blessed oats at one another and at their domestic animals. In sections of Poland they even toss oats at the priest after Mass. Popular legends say this custom is an imitation of stoning, performed in honor of the saint's martyrdom. The ancient fertility rite, however, can still be clearly recognized in the Polish custom of boys and girls throwing walnuts at each other on Saint Stephen's Day.</i><BR><BR>Let me know if you throw walnuts or oats, or ride horses three times around a church!<BR><BR>MariaHobbit, I just found your thread on "Fear vs Pain." Lots of food for thought there! I hope you are doing OK these days.<BR><BR><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>[Edit to add a SW<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>N for Shadowfax, since the Feast of Stephen has such a connection with horses!

"Oh Tannenbaum, oh Tannenbaum, wie treu sind deine bletter...."<BR><BR>Hehe, the German way to sing "Oh Christmas tree" <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>So, how was everyones Christmas? Mine was great...we had company over for Christmas day...17 people, almost my stepdad's entire family <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> It was awesome!<BR><BR>I got a whole bunch of cool stuff...a cute little Aragorn collectible from a friend, a whole bunch of Maple Leafs stuff (I'm a huge Toronoto Maple Leafs fan...Go Leafs Go! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> ) a flip cellphone and two tickets to see Jann Arden in London, Ontario, for January 19th. I can't wait!<BR><BR>Oh, I was watching a television program on the origin of Christmas, and I found out some neat things about it...did you know that the Christmas tree was originally a Norse tradition, as well as the Yule Log? The pine was brought into Norse homes as a symbol of life, fertility and rebirth. The Norse valued the pine because it was really the only tree able to survive the harsh season of winter. Cool eh?<BR><BR>Anyways, hope you all had an awesome Christmas!<BR><BR>*happy holiday huggles to all*<BR><BR>Meggz

Seasons Greetings to all the Diner patrons.<BR><BR><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Had a difficult week or so..longer really.. my favourite Aunt died and her service was 600km's from home on Christmas Eve, and there was me with 8 for Christmas dinner, a full time job and a designated pall bearer... you can guess how tired I was when I got home late Christmas Eve Night. Emotionally and Physically. I spoke at her service and that alone was trying enough, but the woman who spoke before me, spoke of my Aunt's condition before her death, it threw me, and I lost all my thoughts, forgot what exactly I wanted to say, but was able to I hope impart the deep love and respect I held for a woman who was for me a role model, stong independant, fiesty and above all a champion of the underdog. I loved the woman, growing up I did not want to be a nurse, a secretary, a teacher or any other vocation little girls dreamed of back then..I wanted to be 'Auntie Joy!'. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>I trust you all had a full and joyous Christmas, shared with those you love and surrounded by the innocence and laughter of children.<BR><BR>Best Wishes for a Happy New Year.<BR><BR>Star.

Flower of Ithilien/Meggz, which do you prefer to be called? I'm glad you had a nice Christmas! A Maple Leafs fan, you are? Good for you, and they have done rather well so far this year! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Until about 4 years ago, Mrs. Castanea and I lived in St. Lawrence County NY, and grew to love things Canadian, including Hockey Night in Canada - our TRUE north country sports love, though, is Curling! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I had never even heard of it until living up in that area. We have a large Canadian flag hanging in our bedroom. Another Canadian love: the Rankin Family, who made recordings up until one of their members died a few years ago. Terrific folk/Celtic music! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Star, you have had a very tough winter! Thank you for sharing about Auntie Joy. May she rest in peace!<BR><BR>I hope I am not breaking etiquette on such things, but in another thread, Mrs. Parm posted to say that he was struck by a car while bicycling. He is, mercifully, OK except for injury to a knee (hopefully minor), but is off-line for several days. As Parm is a beloved Hash-House regular, I felt all here should know and keep him in our thoughts and prayers.<BR><BR>[complaining n00bie whine ahead] I got chastized by a moderator for spamming, over on the swooning for Rosie thread. And I thought I was simply being helpful by updating links to pictures and such on the Rosie fan site. (Sigh) When Bill the Pony and Grima have swooning threads, why can't Rosie? At least InnocentEvil didn't lock it; she just pointed out that no one seems to have any interest in this topic. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0> [End of complaining n00bie whine]<BR><BR>At risk of utterly boring everyone, what I like about Rosie and Sarah McLeod is that she is NOT stunningly beautiful like Miranda and Liv; she is a good, honest "girl next door," and the perfect match for Sam. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>On a brighter note, I saw ROTK for the second time yesterday, and continue to overdose on the soundtrack recordings <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Peace to all,<BR><BR>Castanea_d. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

_I_ think the actress playing Rosie is gorgeous, myself. If only she were taller...<img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Star, it sounds like your Auntie Joy made your life, and no doubt others' lives as well, more worthwhile. There is no better epitapth. <BR><BR>Heard about Parm's run-in--accidents like that are weird. I had a friend who did an unplanned cartwheel over a car and almost landed on his feet...losing only the contents of his briefcase in the process. Glad to hear that our resident poet had similar luck.

Happy New Year to all here!<BR><BR>I must thank you all for the warm welcome, the interesting posts, and the help you have given me. I don't get to come by here that much, and when I do I try to read before I post, therefore I really don't post much; especially lately. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-sad.gif"border=0><BR><BR>However, that may change soon, who knows? <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>The size of this message board, and subsequently the navigation of it, is a bit overwhelming for me, and I am trying to avoid making any mistakes at the same time. Hence, I am somewhat cautious too.<BR><BR>Thanks I-am-Tigger, for the information about the signature. I added some stuff to mine, but I have been unable to shrink my babies picture.<BR><BR>Thank you tiggie and jnyusa, for the suggestion about writing replies in a document program, and reversing the settings. It is most helpful. I know what you mean about responding to a thread to pages back, jnyusa, but I figure I can just copy and paste the post, with the persons screen name, into the document too, and respond that way. I see that when someone else's post is referred to (and included in a reply) there is no reference to whose post one is responding too. Is it ok to say, make your own little thing up like posting their words in bold with a notation above it saying whose post it was and then say, post your response in italics or something?<BR><BR>Anyway, thanks again, and Happy New Year.

DaughterOTK, what I usually do is post the quote in italics and leave the response font as ordinary. That's the closest thing I know to a standard.<BR><BR>When you get quotes within quotes, though, it gets confusing--and indenting doesn't work well, if at all, in HTML.<BR><BR>Experiment! Maybe you can think outside the box enough, being newer, to help us oldsters out on this one. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

Just dropping by to say may each of you have a heathy, prosperous New Year full of bright blessings (as the laid up Parm would say). <BR><BR>Star, sorry to hear about your Aunt. She sounds exactly like my favorite Aunt. I'm sure you conveyed your love and admiration for her at the service as well as you did here. God bless.<BR><BR>Bess

Yes, Tigger, he <i>really</i> likes the sword. It's beautiful, and not just because it's LOTR related. I'm not an expert on sword and knives, but I've seen enough to know that this one is NICE. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR><BR>Welcome back, Jn. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

M.H, I have Sting hanging in my lounge/dining room <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0> I'd love another one, but I suspect Pooh Bear aleady has enough 'fantasy junk' hanging around the house <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0> One day I'd love to get a glass cabinet built and hang Sting in the back, put 'the Ring ' (which I have) on a glass shelf and lay my special leather bound copies of my books underneath, perhaps even include the stamps and coins. <BR><BR>Well maybe one day <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0>

<BR>LOL! My one and only "china" cabinet has already been taken over by various LOTR stuff: Treebeard and Sauron are grappling right in the middle a group of crystal champagne glasses and some more mundane wine glasses. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-happy.gif"border=0> Shadowfax weaves his way through a stone chess set and some more characters are interspersed among the cut glass light up LOTR goblets that came out a couple of years ago. Too bad Glamdring wont fit in there! <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif"border=0><BR><BR><BR><BR>

The inscription reads, in the common tongue, "One Bowl to Rule Them All and in the Milk Drown them." Glad you like both. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

That is a <i>very</i> cool picture, Tiggie! (Please can I call you that? I saw another of this thread address you as such. If I am out of line, I wll gladly correct myself)<BR><BR>Thanks Ax, for the suggestion on addressing others posts in my posts. I <i>am</i> thinking on the what would work best for me. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0><BR>I will try the incredible shrinking percentage idea Tiggie.<BR><BR>Also, MariaHobbit, someone made reference to a thread of yours regarding <i>pain vs fear.</i> Is that somewhere in this incredibly large land of Tolkien on Line, or is it easy to find. I guess that leads me to another question of sorts. The <i>search</i> function is challenging to me too! Is it ok if I ask here about things like, for instance, the pain vs fear thread, at least until I am doing better at finding things for myself? Otherwise, whenever I come here, I spend a lot of time reading and looking around trying to figure this or that out, and then I have to get off. Also, as regards the pain vs fear thing, I am interested in that as I have chronic pain and it is quite a drag on my life at times, so I am curious about what the thread says. <BR><BR>Thanks again for all the help you guys have given me. I really do appreciate it. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-smile.gif"border=0>

The thread you want is in the Philosophy forum. <BR><BR>The Search function is nice but has limitations. How have you been using it?

<i>The Search function is nice but has limitations. How have you been using it? </i> Thank you Axordil, for the direction to the thread.<BR><BR>Very obviously in the wrong way. I just went there and noticed that you can click on to search all topics. Duh. <img src="http://www.tolkienonline.com/mb/i/expressions/face-icon-small-blush.gif"border=0>
