Using lindahoyland's post Prefect Matches - A sort of friending MEME, I found some new friends: christina_maria, curiouswombat, elwenlj, lab_jazz, manue7a, mrowe verdande_mi and wiseheart. To welcome you all to my flist I'm reposting this video.



Dutch artist Theo Jansen created this fantastic creature. It moves along the beach all by itself, driven by the wind.
Watch the video below. It's magical.

To help you celebrate, I'm sending you a bunch of flowers from my own garden. :-)

Science March
ambree40
Once a scientist, always a scientist. Even though I'm retired I was marching in spirit with all the scientists and other people who protested against "alternative facts". Here are some of the best images I saw posted on social media. The first one could have been me (a long time ago).

WomensMarch

Today, there were Women's Marches all over the world. I couldn't make it to the one nearest to us, in Amsterdam. But I wanted to participate, at least in spirit. So, here are pictures of the event from all over the world in countries outside the USA. It's so encouraging to see the huge crowds that marched for a world of hope, decency and solidarity.

Eijah Wood Biography
ambree40
"Hobbits delighted in such things, if they were accurate: they liked to have books filled with things that they already knew, set out fair and square with no contradictions."

That's what Tolkien wrote about the hobbits' love of genealogy and history, especially their own. This may seem a roundabout way to introduce a new Biography of Elijah Wood on the Always & Forever fan-site but in my mind hobbits and Elijah are inextricably linked together.

I came to LJ through my love of Tolkien's Middle Earth, with a special soft spot for Frodo Baggins and that extended to the actor who brought Frodo to life on the big screen. So I was thrilled when ladysnaps gave me the opportunity to help her with Elijah's Biography. She managed to make it into a fascinating read. As far as I know this is the most extensive biography of Elijah on the internet. A&F is also the longest running fan-site for Elijah online. So, for those of you who share my soft spot for Elijah Wood, here it is! (LINK).

Lady, Thanks a lot for a very fun ride!

help!!

All of a sudden the VISUAL EDITOR option of LJ has stopped working for me. The HTML option works normally but the VISUAL EDITOR screen only shows the text version of the lay-out codes that belong in they grey bar on top of the page. Typing is impossible in VISUAL EDITOR.

This is a screenshot of how the VISUAL EDITOR screen looks.

And this is how the HTML screen looks.

The "Preview Entry" option works normally.

It's probably something quite simple but I have NO idea what to do. Any help would be most welcome!

Bilbo's last song
ambree40
I just came across this on twitter and thought I'd share it.

It is the copy of Bilbo’s Last Song given to Miss M. Joy Hill in 1970. Tolkien gave her copyright ownership.
