    John Ronald Reuel Tolkien was born 114 years ago! He was born on January 3, 1892! It is still Jan 3 in some countries, I hope :D

    Happy (belated) birthday, J R R Tolkien!

    Couldn't leave it there.

    I couldn't leave it at one little toast. I owed my daughter a lunch at The Green Dragon. She had today off work so it was an excellent opportunity to have ourselves a Tolkien birthday lunch which, being ham, eggs, chips(fries) and peas with a pot of tea; was more of a second breakfast.

    J. R. R. Tolkien Birthday Toast!

    [​IMG]
    Text reads: On the 3rd January 1892 JRR Tolkien was born in Bloemfontein, South Africa. To celebrate this event, on this day each year Tolkien fans around the world were invited to raise a glass and toast the birthday of this much loved author 21:00 (9 pm) your local time.
    The toast is "The Professor".
    For those unfamiliar with British toast-drinking ceremonies:
    To make the Birthday Toast, you stand, raise a glass of your choice of drink (not necessarily alcoholic), and say the words 'The Professor' before taking a sip (or swig, if that's more appropriate for your drink). Sit and enjoy the rest of your drink
    from www.tolkiensociety.co.uk

    PS: for those who are curious, the photo is of a pint of Old Rosie cloudy cider, in the garden of The Quarryman's Arms, Box, Corsham, Wiltshire, England, on a pub garden bench.
