I agree, and like the idea [In reply to] Can't Post

Long ago when I ran a website, I had a little widget thing that placed a marker of visitors the site. I think we want something like that?

Greetings! [In reply to] Can't Post

What fun, to be able to act geeky with someone in your own family! Cool And you've "brought out" another South African fan, also - hopefully more will make themselves known!

Have you ever visited Bloemfontein, and tried to locate Tolkien's home? Smile

Er... [In reply to] Can't Post


Actually, my aunt lives about one and a half hours from Bloemfontein. I can't believe we've never tried to go there. We've both been to Bloemfontein, but never to Tolkien's house. Blush
I think I'll call my her RIGHT now...

The people on ToRN are so nice! [In reply to] Can't Post

As I said, I've asked the owner of a comic book store if he knew any Ringers. None, it seems.
My pencil case is covered in dwarves, and I sing The Misty Mountains song at the top of my lungs - so far, I've met no fans.
Hmm...maybe they're too scared of me.

Welcome! [In reply to] Can't Post

Very interesting presentation and it's nice that you found your way up to TheOnering.net! I like to think that there is Tolkien's fans around the world and that his works reach all kind of cultures. Alas that there isn't many fans where you live in South Africa but carry on talking about it and suggesting the books to your friends and relatives for there might be potential fans close to you waiting to discover Middle-Earth.

Have a nice day.
