    One Parisian baker has promised to sell his bakery to a homeless man who saved his life, and has begun teaching him the baker's arts.

    All over the (first) world people are agog for the latest Game of Thrones extravaganza.


    Little do they know, the truth of what really happened back then is at least as compelling as the modern 'fantasy' fictions based on those days....


    Must watch TV.

    Looks like Hobbits were there in the Neolithic as well, and pastoral as one might expect. Tolkien notes that they lingered in the Northwest of the old world, so this may have been one of their settlements, with all the practical touches one would expect. Since all of the other races waned with the coming of the Age of Men, and the level of technology is not as high as it was during the Third Age, I assume this settlement is reflective of their culture during their fading years. Its a pity that they're gone!:wink:

    Cordially,

    Reincarnation much? Sheer delight as this 3 year old boy looks like he knows exactly what he's doing. Enjoy.

    A thread worth a bump. Can anyone think of any other examples?
