Absolutely love your collection. I laughed and was moved! I can't even decide which collection I like best. (Though the B5 stuff is marvelous).
Really terrific, I may have to appropriate my class quote from your list. I'll let you know.

I was looking for a quote that could apply to human rights violations in Afghanistan; instead, I lingered reading all of the quotes on your page. Thought provoking and lovely. Thank you.

I have read the Hobbit series myself more than once and The Hobbit to both my children and my nieces and nephew. They never seemed to tire of it. At least once during the summer when we traveled together they would beg me to read it to them. If I didn't finish on the trip, I certainly had to finish it for my children when we got home. I even "taught" The Hobbit a few years ago and was rewarded by a student telling me pruodly that it was the first book she had ever read 'start to finish'. The point?, you ask. I have very strong mental images of the scenes and characters in the book(s) and have often been disappointed at their rendering by artist who seem to have no feel for the series. Your collection of the last homely house is refreshing and makes me think not only of story, but also of the joy I had in sharing those stories with my family. Corny, maybe, but I am glad you have gathered this collection.

comment -- Last Homely House
This is an incredible web page. I am simply awed by its scope. I look forward to spending a bunch of time here in the future. I have looked for this house in my imagination for years and years. I never thought to find it in my computer. Maybe you could do some more music...(obiviously I am a musician) or some kind communication thing that would be a combination of e-mail, apa, and chat for your guests to the house. Its just a thought I had-probably impossible, though after seeing what you have here I am not sure anything is impossible for you on the computer....I love computers, but I often feel like the old dog trying to learn new tricks.....I look forward to many more visits!!!

Have been looking for something more in line with the legends Mr. Tolkien so eloquently placed in my memories and greatly appreciate your efforts. Again, I thank you. ;)

I like your collection of quotes. I hope you don't mind if I add some of them to my own collection?
What's more, I *really* like the philosophy behind your collection. It's akin to mine. I've been collecting quotes for nigh on 30 years. The collection is my personal eclectic Bible, growing and changing as I do.
Over the years, I've shared it with my bewildered friends and family: "Here, if you want to know how and why I think and act the way I do, read this." It usually leaves them even more confused than they were before, which is the point -- to make them *think.*
Thanks for sharing - Tom

Hey, great page. I don't normally leave comments but this one really jazzed me.
May the hair on your feet grow long.

All I can say is I love it all and this is the best site I have seen that show off the features of The Last Homely House in Imladris. I am a player on ELENDOR MUSH
Thanks for all the hard work you put into this for those at visit.

Your list of quotations caused me much mirth, quiet contemplation, and the recognition that there are more than one or two kindred spirits out there!
A great collection. Thanks. I shall be passing these on...
Your good health,

Hi Aaron, I recently stumbled across the Last Homely House during a late night surf, and I have to say it is quite probably the best page/set of pages I have seen so far on the web. Well organized, good, solid links and plenty of character. It definately feels like a "resting place" for the weary web traveller, as well as providing links to many other interesting tools. (The Library was a BIG wow!)
Keep up the great work.

I want to thank you for your delightful website. I live in Chickaloon, Alaska, in a log cabin on 30 wooded acres. no indoor plumbing, wood heat, a lake for fishing and mountains all around. Today, asI was walking along the ridgetop behind the house, I saw a brown bear, a Bald eagle, and a porcupine. I'm happier than I've ever been, because i live a peaceful life here........ and I have full internet access. (pretend those last three words are flashing, with lights all around) I, too, enjoy F&SF. Occasionally, the Rural Alaskan Television Network (RATNET) uses their sat link to bring in the FOX network. We get X-Files and Babylon 5.
I like B5. the Star Trek spin offs just piss me off. The last fantasy film I thought was worth the price of admission was Excalibur. I'm very picky about people using Tolkein references, but your place, I think, does the old man proud.

Happy to have found Elrond's LLH...he may have deaprted the Havens...but we who remain are always relieved to find the house and in good care!
Date: Tue, 28 Mar 1995 05:12:52 GMT
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, the best source anywhere on the net that I have found is your LHH. I've found more links to more interesting places here than anywhere. Important note: don't stop! I lost my link and could not find it for a few weeks. when I got it back, I made special effort to keep it handy. I may or may not have mailed you stuff but anyway, please accept my deepest thanks for putting this page on the net.

I'm a pretty antisocial person, spending most of my time reading books, browsing the web, or out jogging in the woods. I was thus a little surprised when I read over some of your pages and discovered that we have much in common. Because I'm not very social I tend to think I'm particularly different from all the people I see walking down the street or in class. It's somewhat disconcerting to recognize oneself in another, and at the same time it is nice to know there are people out there with the same interests. You are a lot more positive than I, a bit brighter, and definitely more sensitive. From looking at my web pages (http://www.webcom.com/~joe/) you can't at all tell that we have anthing in common, but I really think we do.
Anyway, I try to give feedback when I stumble across good pages. Your own www works were what I mostly appreciated. You are the only person I've come across on the web so far who has collected more quotes than I have! Great quotes. And I like your reading tastes too. As soon as I finish up school I plan to read more science fiction.
Good luck to you in the future!

Hi there Aaron,
I suppose that after having been on the Cool Site of The Day and on Spider's Web pick of the day, there isn't much I can say about the Last Homely House, except that I loved it!!!!! There are so many links and so much excellent stuff to be found there, plus the Tolkien motif doesn't hurt things any either. I also read your favorites list (had to know what makes a guy like you tick) and your favorites are so close to mine it is scary. My only pickiness would be about not putting Pratchett on the list of the best, but hey, that's personal taste for you. In any case. the House is terrific. Keep up the amazing work!!!!

Aaron, I have to say, I'm impressed. I've been bopping around the net for a while now, and the setup you came up with is really incredible. The house's rooms allow for so many possibilities.
Anyway... good job!

Just a note of appreciation for your quotes, which made for an inspiring read this morning.... If you have no objections I'd like to share your collection with my students in a freshman writing class next fall (I'm going to set up a Mosaic page for them and would like to include this URL.) Thanks, Bryan Pfaffenberger (prof at UVA)

I am sure you have heard this a lot, but great Job! I am so dazzled by what you have done. You have great info and links and the presentation is fantastic. You have my favorite place on the Web!

Have been browsing through your house while searching for information search questions for my students.
It is beautiful.
Thank you for expending the energy to create it.

Congratulations, Aaron... yours is genuinely one of the most worthwhile collect ions of resources I've seen on the Web. I've found much of value here I've seen nowhere else. Your time and effort really shows!

Aaron, you are a living god! The Last Homely House is the greatest WWW page I've seen in a long time.
And I just wanted to tell you so.

I just thought I'd drop a line to say that I really like the Last Homely House. It really succeeds in being a nice cozy place on the web, and the links to other places are good too. I've added a link to your place from my home page.
Date: Thu, 13 Oct 1994 10:28:39 -0400
Aaron, your WWWHomePage is very worthy of its name; I found it a joy to browse in, and expect to return to it whenever I have time.
Nice to virtually meet you; thank you for inviting me into your home[ly house]
