re: 1st child will be getting his learners permit tomorrow - DukeSilver
The majority of the cost is just going to be his age and the bulk of the cost will be on the liability coverage, which is mandatory. The best you can really do is get him an old enough car/non financed car to where full coverage isn't necessary. ...

re: Three Body Problem Trilogy - DukeSilver
I listen to a lot of audio books on overdrive through my library. I listened to the first book, and to my surprise they don't have the second book, but then they have the damn third book. Pretty mind blowing to have the 1st and 3rd of a series but not the 2nd. That's what prompted my search and p...

re: One thing RE: Harry Potter movies vs books - DukeSilver
Listening to the audio books now after seeing all of the movies multiple times. Just finished The Order of the Pheonix. I am enjoying them. But my word is Hermione's obsession with "elf rights" bruuuuuutal in the books. Great call omitting that from the movies, should have been omitted from the book...

re: Lake Tahoe - Ski Trip - March 2019 - DukeSilver
