Happy Birthday, JRRT!
My friend Rick Michaelson reminded me that today is JRR Tolkien's birthday. He was born in 1892.
Everyone should celebrate by eating some lembas, admiring a tree, or (best of all!) rereading The Lord of the Rings. I'm sure Tolkien himself would have advocated a good smoke, but I prefer healthier options.
A nice rich birthday cake, on the other hand . . . .
