Re: On the trail of hobbits?
- I'm a "naturalized" German/English type (thank you for that info on Cousin
George), around five and a half feet tall and all the men on my side of the
family are 6' or over BUT I married a Northern Irish/Sicilian and most of the
men on the Sicilian side are shorter than me, and of the Northern Irish some
seem very short and others very tall (been there to visit the family)... not
that you care... AND when doing the hitchhiking / train thing in 1985, my
friend and I noticed, crossing the borders coming up from France into
Germany, that everyone suddenly got a few inches taller on average. Didn't
go into Italy and Greece. It's a pretty noticeable trend, if you are just
blundering around prepared to notice it.

<< True, but I meant you don't get the factual history webpage you are
for on your word-search. I would never demean or impugn the intelligence of
ggg. It's so hard to see expressions on this machine. Actually I get a lot
of false leads when doing web searches. Even using questions. And then the
search engine has the nerve to question my spelling.
