We are a middle earth family

Reading the Fellowship of the Ring, my 10 year old son, described the experience as "like looking into a painting." I would have to agree. It is one of the most beautiful stories to ever entertain my imagination. Here are some of my favourite quotes from all three movies:


"I would rather share one lifetime with you than face all the ages of this world alone."
- Arwen, as she gives Aragorn the Evenstar

"So do all that have lived to see such times. All you have to do is decide what to do with the time that given to you."
- Gandalf to Frodo


"It's like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo, the ones that really mattered. Full of darkness and danger they were. Sometimes you didn't want to know the end. Because how could the end be happy? How could the world go back to the way it was when too much bad had happened? But in the end it is only a passing thing...this shadow. Even darkness must pass. A new day will come. And when the sun shines, it will shine out the clearer. Those are the stories that stay with you... that meant something. Even if you were too small to understand why. But I think, Mr. Frodo, I do understand. I know now. Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn't. They kept going because they were holding on to something." "What are we holding on to, Sam?" "That there's some good in this world, Mr. Frodo, and it's worth fighting for."
- Samwise Gamgee


"A day may come, when the courage of men fails, when we forsake our friends and break all bonds of Fellowship, but it is not this day!"
- Aragorn at the black gates

"The end? The Journey doesn't end here. Death is just another path we all must take."
- Gandalf to Pippin

Watching all three stories together was an amazing treat, and I highly recommend it. But now Duncan and I are going for a walk, cause sitting down in front of the TV for almost 12 hours was harder than we thought it would be! Gotta stretch those legs!

Repair your own credit , Credit Repair is an ongoing matter for many consumers. Consumers have paid up to $500 or more to credit repair companies who follow this same process to remove their credit errors. Without credit you can't get a car, travel, loan money, or even get mortgage.

Have you been victimized by credit repair companies? Many companies promise or guarantee to clean up your credit report so you can get a car loan, a home mortgage, insurance, etc. In reality, they can't deliver what they promise. You pay them hundreds dollars in fees and these companies do nothing to improve your credit. Many of them just disappear.

Everything a credit repair companies can do for you, you can do for yourself at no cost. No one can do a better job in repairing your own credit as you can. You are the only one responsible to make sure your credit report is accurate. Our guide will help you every step of the way.
If your application for credit is denied due to information supplied by a credit bureau, the company you applied to must be liable to provide you with that credit bureau's contact information. Furthermore you are entitled to a free copy of your credit report if you've been denied credit within the last 60 days

Disputing credit mistakes or outdated items is free. Just ask the credit reporting agency for a dispute form or submit your dispute in writing, attach any supporting documentation. Always send them a copy instead of the original Team
