Selmo has just left Hobbiton.
1 July 2007 - a bad day for English Hobbits

As an English hobbit, I can no longer fulfill one of my cherished ambitions

For many years I have been determined that, one day, I would visit The Eagle and Child (The Bird and Baby) in Oxford, sit where Tolkien sat with the Inklings, enjoy a pint of good English ale and smoke a pipe of tobacco in the Professor's honour.

That dream has been snatched from me.

It is now illegal to smoke in any enclosed public or work place in England.
It may be good for my health but I feel that I am now deprived a part of my Hobbit cultural heritage.
