    Many people I know who have been running for many years are in pain from it. Notice I don't call 'em "normal" :lol:... *hugs* ... but I, too, think another fitness pursuit is in your future.

    Good start, but not any excuse NOT to follow everyone's advice when they tell you to sit down with your friend and work out (on paper) all the assumptions, expectations, and agreements.

    If the CC&Rs say that dogs must be on a leash, then it doesn't matter if the owner is w/the dog or not, if there's no leash on the dog, he's in violation.

    If your HOA is like mine, it took a lot...

    I'm not as afraid of HOAs as it seems many people are ... maybe because I didn't find the rules restrictive. I did find them helpful in providing consequences to neighbors who didn't have the same...

    Wait.

    IMO, your first commitment is to the animal(s) now in your home.

    Donate the money you'd spend on feeding and vet care (etc) to your favorite local rescue or shelter, or save for your...

    OP ... are you pursuing the no-leash issue with the HOA?

    I've read every post in this thread and no matter what the breed of dog, every poster agrees that an asshat owner is cause for concern.

    I would like to see Ladyhawke digitally remastered. That, along with Big and The Breakfast Club, are probably my favorite movies. Oh, and High Fidelity.

    Another important point. I hope tats and donations are the only thing the doc isn't current about.

    With the Red Cross, it used to be for one calendar year for tats and piercings.

    Mostly, yes, that's been my experience.

    One time, however, I thought I hadn't received something at checkout from Target. The security person went to the back with my receipt and actually showed...

    I think you should distinguish between working for an FEI pro whose focus is competition versus one whose business has lessons as a large component. If it's a showing pro, write a compelling letter...

    Not a chance.

    But I'd wait until I believed I had a good sense of his character before I said yes (or asked for him to say yes).

    I haven't found the rules of dating very different than they...

    I keep wondering if it's my reading or your typing/grammar ... but there are things being addressed that have never been argued.

    I do not see a correlation between easily available birth control...

    Steffen Peters is back in the saddle riding with the rest of the team now. Well, probably not right this minute, but earlier today he was!

    What is so interesting about your observation is that, even if your interpretation was correct, these people separated their scholarly pursuits from the documents they prepared that would guide and...

    FWIW, I ended a relationship with a man because he wouldn't have a vasectomy. He was in his mid-40s, had two children, and was adamant that he didn't want any more. He was also an educated scientist....

    Really good observation (and self-awareness). I typically date these kinds of men because their skills with the real world make me feel safe. The characteristic that's been problematic for me is not...

    Speak up ... talk to your partner, talk to your family, talk to friends (and if you can't talk to the ones you have, try to find people who are at least able to be part of a support network).

    To the very best of my knowledge, medical is an addition to a mortality policy. I think you can insure a horse for as little as $10,000 and add medical (percentage is based on the horse's activity 3%...

    It's not a poll because what I really wanted to know was if anyone else had heard the "theory". I only added the "how do you do it?" for conversational value. Thank you for your contribution!

    I used to buckle the flash attachment downward so I could tuck in the loose "end". However, I was told that the correct way to close the flash was to buckle...
