    :eek: VS fit her as a C cup? I am a C cup and I am but a wee patch of sod compared to this lady's vast tracts of land. Somebody there had some kool aid that day.

    Seriously, thanks for sharing, a...
  2. Finding a moving company is raising my blood pressure. How did you find yours?

    Historically, I've done the "two people and the bed of the pickup truck" variety of move. This time, I am not moving my couch up 3 flights of steps. Additionally, the pickup truck will be in Virginia...

    My family has an interesting dynamic with birthdays. My mother feels very hurt if hers is not remembered- as a 10-year-old, my kid sister, father, and I banded together to give her a surprise dinner....

    Chain Mattress Store #1: Sales guy listened when we told him what we were looking for, what we'd looked at online, and what our budget was; said "this is what we have that might suit what you're...

    Melyni, as an ALCAR user, I appreciate you sharing your results as well. I posted my horse's experience upthread- about two and a half years later, my horse's leptin resistance continues under good...

    I love that question. "How much do you expect to spend annually on your pet?" That's a bad question to ask a horse person... "I've budgeted $X per year with the full understanding that sometimes...

    And frankly I've never understood this part either, but I accept that many people find a schooling round useful and that it's a solid money maker for the horse shows, and so it's here to stay- and...

    Spinoff- Vet references for rescues

    I am finally, finally seriously looking at getting My Very Own Cat- after several years of stealing time with other people's kitties because my living situation was not conducive (e.g. housemate with...

    I also have never understood this. In the hunter derby ring, we want to reward the classic style but emphasize brilliance and boldness, right? Isn't a facet of a good "bold" hunter one that you can...

    I don't think I can tell a difference either, but I'm not about to go plonk myself on top of a $2k affair just in case I really can't live without it. ;)

    I am sometimes good at consciously turning my brain off, and sometimes not so good. Watching ASMR videos on Youtube works for me when I fall into category 2.

    What would I do? The next time I saw the cat, I'd take it and be very quiet about it. If cat and I were unsuitable to be together, I would find the cat a home.

    Whomever is selling that saddle is selling it for some reason other than the flap being unsuitable for what she wants to do. The suitable saddle is the one that fits you and your horse and is built...

    Mattress shopping

    The last time I bought a mattress, I did so at Ikea. It was easy.

    Tomorrow I venture out into the wide world of mattress shopping. I do not understand why mattresses cost over $1000. I do not...

    Several of the trainers I've worked with have been sponsored or received incentives from one brand or another. None of them pressured students to buy that brand. I did twice purchase a saddle of that...

    I'm the same way, and when I'm up, I'm up! Drives me bonkers, but I almost never hit snooze because of it, so I guess that's a perk. Boyfriend feels fairly confident in his ability to comfortably...

    I didn't realize that the FitBit and such had this capability. That is interesting knowledge as they are lower profile than the wristband style I've seen defined for the purpose. I'll also be trying...
  19. Vibrating wristband alarms, and other silent alarm options

    My boyfriend and I are preparing to move in together. I get to work at 7:30 every morning. (I also braid horses which occasionally results in a 3am wake up.) He usually operates by a more traditional...

    I've had my Volant S boots for a year now and no complaints once they dropped and stretched. :) Breaking them in was a bit of a bear as these are made of stout leather, not the super soft calfskin. I...

    That is the first question I asked him when we had our introductory meeting. He will be staying.

    As a former SBC student I am thrilled at the news. :)

    Oh, that's a great idea! It might be a little much for this particular vacation but that's definitely going in my horse show rotation.
