I'd have to say...myself and Burrahobbit because we detest each other and each other's worldviews. In short we don't get along together.

I think I can sort of answer number 3. I believe the Entwives ended up in the Shire.

Perhaps just like the Hobbits used the calendar set up in Gondor by the king (i.e. King's reckoning) they used some sort of "universal" currency also set up by the kings and/ or stewards? Perhaps...

Even at the un-elvish stature of 5' 10" Cate Blanchett is tall for a woman, the average height being about 5' 4" or 5' 5" (I'm 5'6" most girls I know are as tall as or shorter than me.)

I described it this way once "The veil of flesh is a bit more thin in white than in grey." meaning Gandalf came back more powerful than he was at frist.

I'm a both fan myself Lush. I love the stories and the World of Middle-Earth as well, and usually at the same time. Though I do sometimes wish elves and hobbits were in this world. *sigh*

Your proportions are correct, Gothmog. Although at 1/16 I would think the Maia dilute enough to be just this side of negligible. Elves like Galadriel, Celeborn, and Gildor seem to have...

My dear Gothmog, I do not recall in the book Legolas actually walking ON the snow. Please if I am wrong point me in the right direction. The only walking atop snow is done in the movie.
