HAPPY BIRTHDAY, J. R. R. TOLKIEN
J. R. R. Tolkien, the Oxford professor best known for creating "The Lord of the Rings" trilogy and "The Hobbit," was born on this day in 1892. (it's also my mom's birthday -- Happy Birthday, Mom!) Recently, after a long, drawn-out legal battle, LOTR director Peter Jackson announced he will indeed be directing "The Hobbit," though it will take years to get to the screen. I know, I sound like a geek but I really enjoyed these movies and I'm looking forward to seeing "The Hobbit."
