One cost more than £200 million, took eight years to film using the spectacular scenery of New Zealand and won 17 Oscars.

I just spent the last hour or so watching this thing.

Oh. Wow.

I own the LOTR Extended Version DVD set with all the bells & whistles. This production was incredibly well-done, professional, and worthy of the LOTR universe. My hat is off to Ms. Madison and crew for the OUTSTANDING job done with this film.

I recommend this to any FReeper who is a fan of “The Lord of the Rings”.

But of course. Just not too active on FR anymore. On the blogs. My friend Ward is writing again as well.

Too much snow here. More tonight and even more Monday. Dang global warming.

Hope you’re well.

Yep. It’s a normal amount of snow for Ohio this time of year. All that global warming breaking out is nonetheless very chilly here.

Got a link to Ward? Send it to my freepmail. Thanks, Bro.
