Happenings Far Over the Misty Atlantic Cold:
Rick Santorum was one of the contenders in the recent IOWA caucuses(cauci?? It‘s as bad as hypothalamus:) Mr Santorum, a former Republican member of the US Senate, came in second in almost a photo finish with the most likely person to win the presidential nomination - Mitt Romney. In Rick’s thank you message he referred to his wife by quoting C.S. Lewis..
“C.S. Lewis said a friend is someone who knows the song in your heart and can sing it back to you when you have forgotten the words"..
The above incident gave me reason today to purr like a kitten, when hubby related Santorum’s message to me and repeated the quote. I’d not heard those C.S. Lewis words before and replied “what a lovely compliment to his wife." Then, “you do realize C.S. Lewis was British..and a friend of Tolkien’s?” DH’s mouth almost fell open - he said “how do you know that?” My response was to the effect I’d learned it while reading The Hobbit and subsequently the background of it’s writer. He shook his head and said “sometimes you amaze me.” *gloat, gloat* This fangurl condition can certainly have positive results:)

CORRECT ANSWER to the Empire Mag Poll: The reviewer did indeed say Thorin "growls" and Armitage's "increasingly impressive" Thorin plus "spine tingling stuff" - they did not however mention "velvety voice."
