‘Ware! Ware!’ cried Damrod to his companion. 'May the Valar turn him aside! Mumak! Mumak!’

To his astonishment and terror, and lasting delight, Sam saw a vast shape crash out of the trees and come careering down the slope. Big as a house, much bigger than a house, it looked to him, a grey-clad moving hill. Fear and wonder, maybe, enlarged him in the hobbit’s eyes, but the Mumuk of Harad was indeed a beast of vast bulk, and the like of him does not walk now in Middle-earth; his kin that live still in latter days are but memories of his girth and majesty.

I see the bus slogan is "send us victorious" as opposed to the expected "keep the engine running".

A live feed of a raccoon climbing a 23 storey building in St. Paul. Say what you want about the interweb, but life sure is entertaining these days.

The clue is in the title "Reflections"
