    This. I can't believe all you people trying to guilt the OP into going.

    OP, just continue to reiterate that you cannot be away from work that weekend and can't make it. I actually enjoy going to...

    Yes, I would support a candidate that was socially liberal/fiscally conservative.

    In reality, though, I'm not sure that there are any true fiscal conservatives in office today. Even when one gets...

    When I was younger, when we moved for the first time after my sister and I had become horse owners, my Dad included shipping the horses in his moving expenses and the company paid it. The company...

    You say this person is your best friend and if she knows all about your family and ex-husband, I'm assuming she has been a part of your life for a while. And, that she was nervous about sharing her...

    In my experience, people who didn't have health insurance and wanted it and have sufficiently low income to get subsidies love the ACA. People who want insurance, mostly because they are losing...

    I loved this movie way back when, and still do, but when I re-watched it a couple of years ago for the first time in a long time, I was shocked. It's amazing how much sensibilities have changed since...

    Heat transfer is the key element. In order to prevent overheating, heat must be transferred from the body into the environment. This is how natural body cooling processes (sweating, vasodilation)...

    In private, I would be upset and go home and call my sister and say bad things about my clueless part-boarder. And I would be really tempted to tell my part-boarder that as soon as she can find...

    I'm neutral on the question of face-to-face meetings. I don't think I would ever initiate a meeting with an organ recipient or a donor's family, but I would probably be willing to meet with them if...

    Have you seen that thing going around Facebook that says:

    How do you get a bikini body?
    Put bikini on your body.

    Well, in a lot of ways, the answer to the question "how do you convert your...

    I sometimes listen to Dave Ramsey on the radio. I am always amazed at how many young people accumulate 6 figure student loans in the pursuit of a degree that gets them a job paying less than...

    No walnuts and no raisins. Ever. Two thumbs up, though, for peanut butter, oatmeal, and chocolate chips.

    I didn't vote for Obama either time. I didn't like McCain or Romney, either, but voted for...

    I plan a gradual decline. Ride as long as I can, then switch to driving ponies, then to petting, grooming and feeding treats to my, by then, elderly pasture puffs.

    Thanks, JanM. I've been looking around a bit on realtor.com and I'll try the two sites you recommended, as well.

    You're doing what I see people do over and over again in these "too fat to ride" discussions, which is create some morbidly obese strawman who is out there galloping cross country, schooling upper...

    I agree. I'm 56. My heat tolerance has been dropping for the past several years and my sweat production has gone up to the point where on a busy Saturday, I may take 2-3 showers and go through that...

    So you're saying that I need to design a flag for Nosuchpersonlandia?

    And Eddie Izzard's bit about horses doing child wearing is one of the funniest things ever.

    I'm too old to be a princess, but I could be a queen, or better yet, an empress.

    I have no desire to claim a chunk of Africa, but I could embrace finding some unclaimed tropical island, declaring...

    It depends.

    Are they good to eat? I wonder if they taste like chicken.

    Have they run amok and, having no natural predators, need to have the herds thinned?

    I can see why people might hunt...

    I remember an old TV series with (Roger Moore?) called The Saint. I wonder if it was based on those books.
