Poll: What is Founders Day?
The day Tolkien wrote "in a hole in the ground I found a hobbit..."
The day Durin's brother Founder awoke...
A new holiday! Hooray! Hope I get the day off work!
You found a day? Thanks, I didn't know I lost one!
I don't know, but I'll be sure to stop by TORn on April 26 to find out!
Other -- virtual applause if you know what this poll is about!

Here's what wiki says (I would've admitted I cheated!)... [In reply to] Can't Post

So I don't know, but I'll be sure to check it out when weaver chooses to let us know (unless she'd be so kind as to PM me beforehand! I can keep seek-rits! Cool )

Ha. Well there will be a new addition to that google list, after this year! [In reply to] Can't Post

And since you asked so nicely, I'll tell you what it's all about!

We do indeed have our very own Founders Day here on TORn, celebrating the establishment of this site...

April 26 will be our 2nd Founders Day -- we started this tradition last year on TORn's 10th Anniversary -- if you go to Feedback, you can read some wonderful salutes from last year, which were only one part of the fun we had last year. Here's the link to them:

This year won't be quite as big -- but will still be pretty special and a good time. So please stop by and join in the party!

With clever typing hands;
With the humor of our wit and charms,
We'll be quite an entertaining band.."

Hope to see you at Founders Day Arwen's Daughter..don't forget to bring your humor hammer and answer anvil!! Smile

Excellent! [In reply to] Can't Post

We'll have to make sure not to use any "blacksmithing words" though. When my son was about 16, he went to a blacksmith moot, and the guy told him "Just don't use any of those blacksmithing words around your mother."

Weaver, what a neat way to remind us. Please do something similar closer to the day. My memory is getting so bad lately, and I'd hate to miss this. Thanks so much for working on it.Heart
