Lasgalen has just left Hobbiton.

The Elves in Scandinavian and Icelandic folklore are tall, therefore, Tolkien's use of 'Elf' is appropriate and should not be changed to Eldar (or any other word).
When you're riding in a time machine way far into the future, don't stick your elbow out the window, or it'll turn into a fossil.
