    I always give leeway to the realms of the magical world. Now if only the pixies would quit knotting my hair as I sleep :grumpy:

    Put a silver six pence under your pillow, and the pixies will leave your hair alone.

    Now where would I get a silver six pence from? Would silver spray paint on a copper penny do? hmm more then likely not, I wouldn't want to anger them and wake up with some kind freakish Dolly Parton hairdo. :surprised

    That is true, no way can you fool the little people, if you try you may end up in all sorts of trouble, a six pence is about all they can carry, so anything silver that size will do.

    My dog is a Welsh Corgi the steed of the fae, who depended on there bravery in the great faery wars. Funny, I often find her sitting in my flower bed. And I think she must be having a chat with old friends.

    Hmmm, i not sure but you may be Onagh, in a different guise, and your
    kind have come to take you back, keep away from flowers that your dog
    is attracted to, and you can stay human for awhile :biggrin:

    ...and...:biggrin:...not only is this commonly reported among the locals, but one of the scientists leading this research states flatly that one of her collegues reports a direct sighting of a living hobbit. This is in the interview on the NGC special that first aired about a year after the story broke. I think there is a link to the NGC in the Biology thread...if not, a simple search should lead to a video, or at least the next airing of the story.


    AFAIK, there have been no other recent little foot sightings. :biggrin:

    When visiting relatives in Ireland we often saw the little people, the strange
    thing is we only saw them after a night at the local, i think guiness must
    sharpen the vision :biggrin:

    I couldn't help but wonder if the researcher didn't get caught up in the thrill of the discovery. But there is this nagging detail: The locals reported occasional sightings of living hobbits long before we discovered that they really did exist. :confused:
