Here's another mountain scene:

Apparently it was found in a scrap book from a house clearance. Vendor is in Wimbourne - has he changed his ebay name?

He said: "It wasn't an accident that I chose this part of Wales for the festival."

As I said earlier - I fancy that if Mr faith had chosen to settle in Scotland (or anywhere else in the British Isles) then that place -wherever it might be - would suddenly sprout a formerly unknown connection to Tolkien.

And, as I also noted; this venue was not Mr Faith's first choice; accident or not.

(some folk just enjoy making things up about Tolkien, esp. when there's money to be made.)

Seems to me he's on the defensive about the money he's charging; while at the same time going on the attack against collectors who he perceives as not seeing things his way. Thus bracing everyone concerned in case the event folds perhaps?

Onto another issue:

Q. - "Why did you decide to do this Tolkien festival in Wales?

A. - "Wales is where it all started."

Rot! (as North Polar Bear might say). The reason why Mr Faith wants to hold his event in Wales is because that's where he happens to live! (he also owns a few acres with 'bunkhouses' for tourists).

If Mr Faith had settled in Scotland, then doubtless the area he lived in would then become 'the heart of Tolkien Country' (as he named Macynlleth, the event's original venue).

"I just counted, I have approximately 26 .... now how does that make me feel?"

what - after reading of all the books others have amassed? I'd hope you'd feel Inspired to Emulate them!
