    Sleep Genius app on your phone. Plays meditative music on a timer, and I've trained my brain/body that when I'm playing that music, it's time to sleep. Works every single time.

  2. Bosche (but with an asterisk!)

    Very quiet, almost never leaves behind crusty stuff. BUT, unless you have it on the highest "power wash" setting, it simply does not dry the dishes. So, not sure I'd get another one, but it's not...

    I don't take offense at being asked, but I just leave it at No, sorry, I don't loan them out.

    OP, i think being a bit sweaty in the stall for an evening is better than galloping full bore in that heat and possibly going through a fence. You can point fans on them and they'll be fine.

    Did you report the injury to the BO? if it's broken, this is a workplace injury and you should be eligible for workmans comp to cover your medical bills (assuming you aren't paid under the table).

    A thoughtful post on this topic from the Jesuits. I grew up in a catholic home, but decided against organized religion when I was around 10-11. My sisters and parents remain active church-goers,...

    Hey wildlifer, I totally appreciate where you're coming from and the professionalism of you and your colleagues. This from someone whose job at times puts me on the other side of the table from you....

    When someone does something you don't want them to do (or when someone asks you to do something you don't want to do), tell them no.

    OP, next time you have one that is killed in the trap, you could practice what you'd do. Will still feel horrible and gross, but you'll at least get over how the mechanics of it would work.

    Definitely find out the culture first. Flextime benefits are a big deal in most companies. If a friend referred you, I'm guessing he/she works there? Used LinkedIn to see who else works there that's...

    you could take any piece of art in the world and make simplistic fun of it. I'm not saying that all art is good. I also think poor quality art relies too much on shocking the viewer and comes across...

    my big, big Hungarian was sound until mid-20s. Retired due to stiff hocks, but was happily pasture sound through 28y/o.

    I'd ask what are zoning rules with regard to remodels-- what conditions will the county slap on the project? In my county, they require that a house be brought up to code if you're doing any...

    I'm not sure I'm following? Any heater in this climate will be running all the time, so what's going to drive my cost is the heater wattage-- if it currently takes a 1250w submersible heater to keep...
