Point taken - nevertheless, if one looks up 'hobbit' on ebay, one finds a terrific amount of sheer tat which has nothing to do with hobbits, or JRR. And that sort of thing gets up my nose.

And guess where they all originate?

That's rotten news - I really like Neil's site. I hope something can be done.

Oh, I'd have thought that Riley's was the name of the shop that sold this piano. Does that sound right?

Well, it makes a pleasant change from typewriters - I wonder what the postage would be?
