    No. Way back in the '70s, I had a nice QH that I showed 3' children's hunters with. He was only 6 when we bought him, with mild PO. Clueless non-horsey parents and kid desperate for a horse,...

    I read that article earlier today too. Yes, stupid! How does a purposeful and controlled, putting both reins in one hand to pat, translate to "loss of rein"? I know "loss of rein" well, as I have...

    I hope you can either mount from the ground or you they provide a block! My guess is that they are more interested in seeing that your horse stands well for mounting than they are concerned with the...

    My guess is that your physician is engaging in a bit of judgmentalism about tattoos. He/she probably doesn't approve of them ;).

    Every regional Red Cross has it's own rules on tattoos, but they...

    I'm not sure what you mean by a leash and no collar. Is the dog leashed or not?

    Never. I've made a few HR people cry over the years, I'm always three steps ahead of them ;). I've had a grand total of TWO bad bosses in my 30+ years of working, but the never made me cry, though...

    I hope it gets resolved soon, it's a bit tough to get groceries around here right now. We usually spread our shopping out to various sources, depending on what we need: Market Basket, Hannaford,...

    I was wondering if you lived in my old neighborhood. There's a little male JRT there who is a real terror. He gets loose all the time (digs under the fence) and runs at other dogs. He attacked my...

    Apparently you can, which is kind of the whole point of this drama (in addition to that family issues!)...many folks are not eager to see such a uniquely successful business model torn down in favor...

    It would have been nice if they'd considered an employee buyout, but I don't think that was ever on the table. Felicia Thornton, one of the new "co-CEOs", was hired by Albertson's grocery stores,...

    I am tall and long waisted and have a lot of trouble with jackets...even if the sleeves are long enough the waist falls too high and makes an ugly bubble thing at my lower back. Grand Prix has long...

    Interesting! I used to ride at Cutter too, Marina has done a nice job with that farm. So, the thought is that it was intended to be another store if she couldn't make a go of it?

    I've read that the flipped board member is Rafaele Evans, widow of Evan Demoulas, who died in the race car accident? Evan was on the "George" side of the family, but Rafaele was voting with Arthur T...

    Oh, no, not here. I have never had police take my picture when pulled over. I've never heard of such a thing.

    Yep, that's what makes the whole thing so interesting, it's a "test case" of sorts. I hope the insurrection, with participation of employees, management, customers..and now suppliers!, is successful.

    Yes, that's very cool. I've never really been fond of our "old Market Basket" here in Westford, thought it has a very loyal following. Lots of generic items and a bit disorganized. But a good...
