Welcome to TORn [In reply to] Can't Post

Ampthill- that's Bedfordshire isn't it? I used to live in Milton Keynes (for my sins- only for 3 years though, in the 1990s) and used to occasionally drive through Ampthill. I can imagine it's a little isolated in terms of facilities, but nicer than Bedford or Luton in terms of places to live.
Anyway, enjoy TORN!!

mae govannen, tolkienlocked! : )

aka. fili orc-enshield
+++++++++++++++++++
the scene, as i understand it, is exceptionally well-written. fili (in sort of a callback to the scene with the eagles), calls out "thorRIIIIIIN!!!" just as he sees the pale orc veer in for the kill. he picks up the severed arm of an orc which is lying on the ground, swings it up in desperation, effectively blocking the pale orc's blow. and thus, forever after, fili is known as "fili orc-enshield."

this earns him deep respect from his hard-to-please uncle. as well as a hug. kili wipes his boots on the pale orc's glory box. -- maciliel telpemairo

I was born in MK [In reply to] Can't Post

Haha, what a coincidence :) I wish I lived there still but I can understand why my parents moved us here, it's definitely a nice place for families, just not a very fun place once you've grown up/don't have a car :P

Thankyou! I'm sure I will :D

This world is getting smaller and smaller! [In reply to] Can't Post

My partner grew up in the Bedford area all her life, that's why we live here now. I only found out the other day that my great-great-grandad died in Bedford - trying to find where he is buried.

Awwww thank you all so much! [In reply to] Can't Post

I can't believe I hadn't heard of this site sooner - I've been a Tolkien fan since I was 5 thanks to my Dad & Grandad :)

And as for all you Bedfordians, wow :) I'm so glad there are people around this area that like Tolkien too because I actually swear I don't know anyone apart from my dad who likes Tolkien here. Everyone at work takes the piss out of me for it >.<

DanielLB - can you get access to some form of records? I'm sure there has to be a death certificate somewhere, wouldn't that say where he was buried?

And to everyone else, thank you for being so welcoming :)

Mr Kel [In reply to] Can't Post

was born in Birmingham, but grew up in Bedford. His real Dad's ashes are in a memorial wall there somewhere. All I know is that it's near the school Mr Kel went to, Pilgrims Grammar.
