    My parents and my brother are all alcoholics, so I have quite a bit of experience with that.

    There are already non-Presidents on paper currency. Benjamin Franklin and Salmon P. Chase, for instance.

    My elderly horse started losing his vision, and one of the signs was his reluctance to go into any grass longer than about fetlock-length. He would stay in the paddock (which was mowed regularly)...

    I get that, Dune. We get temps like that all summer here too (plus humidity!) and it does gunk them up. Obviously showers are the best thing for that, when the water's freely available (as it...

    Right now this is true. In the 80s and 90s, though, not so much. Until low-rise breeches hit the market I thought pulling the waistband up to my armpits was just normal.

    I have only an inch or...

    The article is worded badly, as is usual for this source. As you point out, I fail to see how he could possibly be a contender for the Pan Ams this year. Rio 2016 is more likely, isn't it?

    I have some very comfy, lightweight hiking pants from Gander Mountain. They have the button and tab on the side so that you can roll them up for capris.

    I'm 5'5" (but long legs for my height) and...

    I'm not sure if there is a tactful way to say this, but I know from experience if there is I probably won't get it right anyway :lol:, so here goes

    I'm tired of all these "awareness" campaigns. Seems like some people forget that awareness of a problem is only the FIRST step. If you never move beyond "awareness," you're not really helping...

    It started in a stall with old bedding then? If so, I'd be wondering about manure causing it.

    One time, our full manure spreader was emitting smoke, and it was parked in its covered concrete bay,...
