It's even a Hobbit prequel. That is Aragorn's parents in that picture. It is about how Arathorn, Aragorn's dad, meets Aragorn's mom and the events that led to Aragorn growing up in Rivendell not knowing his legacy until age 20ish. ...

[quote]What? How did you not know how to get to your house?[/quote]
You knew directions to places before you could drive? Good for you if so, but I was certainly not ever paying attention to where we were going when I was a mere passenger. And Kenilworth to Catholic is a long drive even if it i...

I love this show. It is very entertaining. My guess is if your wife likes shows like the Bachelor, she probably will not like Sherlock. If she enjoy an intelligent crime drama, then she wil...

Go look at the work the Missionaries of Charity are doing in Baton Rouge, then realize she is doing that all over the world.

I got my first cell phone freshman year of college in 2001. I did not miss out on anything not having it before then. I think college age is appropriate. I don't think a high school kid needs a cell phone....
