Greg, DJ,

Thanks for setting me straight. Hope everyone enjoys the latest release.

I will sign off with one of my favorite passages from the story. I recite it to myself when things aren't going very
well.

This is part of a passage Sam says to himself after Frodo has been taken by Shelob, and he must take the ring and carry on alone.

"Above all shadows rides the sun,
The stars forever dewll.
I will not say the day is done,
Nor bid the stars farewell."

All right, who has seen it?

I saw it over the weekend. I must say that I enjoyed it very much. This one wasn't as true to the book as the first one, however.

I won't mention the one main difference that I object to, because I don't won't to spoil it for the ones that haven't seen it.

Hope everyone has a happy and safe holiday.

Pull for NC State over Notra Dame. We are going to need all the help we can get.

Keith...I'm lifelong NC State fan!!! (Grew up in Raleigh)

My wife and I saw Two Towers over the weekend and enjoyed it very much...several changes from the books but the movie kept the spirit intact. Gollum really steals the show. For anyone who has not seen it, one word of warning. It is more violent than the first and much darker...two children behind us were really terrified of the dead marshes scene and the parents had to cover their eyes.

Greg, I just saw it tonight and liked it a lot better than the first, which practically bored me to sleep. Although the scenery was prettier in the first, the tree people and Gollum and the magnificent battle scene in this one kept me awake.

I don't know why parents would think that was ok for young kids.
We went last night and I too thought it was great. Gollum was portrayed just like I imagined him from the books. He sure was a scene stealer.
Unfortunately we had some teenage girls behind us who felt the need for loud comic reviews to the events in the show. It was totally distracting. Dave finally asked them to be quiet but by then the show was nearly over. That's why I like going to a show when the big crowds have thinned out and there's usually only a few people in the theater.
I thought the war was awesome especially the way they showed the overwhelming numbers of Sauromans army. And Treebeard was a delight to see. I can't wait until the next one!!!

That Gollum had a strange similarity to several salesmen who used to call on me when I was in business. Plus a suit of course!!!

LOTR - Dave Barry column

I suppose everyone else already saw this, but it was just in our local news paper this weekend.

Take care, Margaret

I've always been a fan of Dave Barry's column, he's hilarious. sadly, about a year ago my newspaper stopped running his column so I've missed a lot, since i haven't been keeping up with the website
