Short RA Mention

Hi everyone. I am still travelling. Or travelling again. This time Northbound after a wonderful long weekend. After meeting Kate I had the pleasure of staying with Cramerry for two nights before moving on – finally – to the destination of the trip, my teacher trainee reunion. It was a great meet-up – and we…

Benefits of Being a Fan

Since we are discussing the whole issue of calling/describing ourselves as fans vs “well-wishers”, I would just like to quickly say that being a fan has benefits.

Especially…

RA Pocket Shrine 193/? – Hero

If there’s nothing on, it’s time for a shrine post. In anticipation of the birthday auctions I have made a few shrines that are ready to auction. So it is time to show yet another one of them. It will probably be part of a Hobbit fan package… Aw, the dwarves… This tin was gifted to…
