    I know, it's probably the most ridiculous and ignorant thing I have read on the internet in a long time. It's why I refrain from reading any blogs written by anyone less than 40 ;)

    Boy is this the truth! Friendships are just like any other relationships - they are only really real or worthwhile between people that are willing to be REAL. Recently someone that I thought was my...

    MysticOakRanch won't defend her breeding program outright, but some of the loveliest horses I know of are horses (Friesian crosses) that she has bred. I have never been a fan of Friesians, but those...

    You know at this point one could successfully argue that ANYONE breeding dogs is irresponsible, and that ANYONE that gets a dog from anywhere but the pound is doing the wrong thing. With the number...

    I think you should do the exact opposite. Encourage her to go have some fun with the guy...why play games? If she wanted to go to the damn basketball game, why not go? So what if he doesn't text for...

    This is a hard one, no definite advice from me...although early this year after 16 years together my husband and I separated. There was infidelity, some hard feelings, some alcohol use/abuse. We...

    Can you share why you decided to move to Petaluma? Is that where you are working?

    I have to say, the people in Marin are the worst in the Bay Area. OK, maybe not the worst, the second worst, after...

    All the people I know that have been robbed live in "nicer" neighborhoods in million dollar houses!

    I'm going to disagree about involving more "authority" (HR) and recommend first fixing things with your direct co-worker and cube-mate Sue. Go out for lunch or a drink or something and talk about...

    Fingers crossed for you! What part of SOMA? I work in the Financial District (Market and Front Street) if you ever want to grab coffee.

    Good luck, it's f-ing insane right now. If I were working in Palo Alto I might look in "East Palo Alto". It's considered a "bad neighborhood" but I worked with someone that lived there and she loved...

    Great posts about body image and changes Lady Eboshi! The obsession with "skinny" and keeping one's body looking like a 12 year old boy with boobs (when you are a mature 40+ woman!) are right on. You...

    As someone who was abandoned by their mother as an infant, I have to say that mother's day in the era of social media sucks ass.

    It didn't bother me for about 40 years, but now I can't stand it.

    I bought a barely broke Connemara mare that was too small for me. I sold her because of it and regret it 2 years later :(

    I bought a mare that was pretty much perfect on paper (although still a...

    OMFG I agree! I am a carb-o-maniac and 5'6", 125lbs, and don't struggle with my weight. I lost 25 pounds 3 years ago by cutting down on the amount of alcohol (calories) I was consuming. I eat real...

    As gorgeous as the weather is, it's pretty scary here in CA. All our reservoirs are lower than I have ever seen. I drive past one every morning, and I have never seen it look like it does (and I have...

    Well my mare was called "sound" by a dozen vets over a period of 3 years. I also had plenty of trainers think she was "fine". I could clearly see she was "weak" on her right hind.

    My uncles friend used to try to fondle us girls in the swimming pool when we were around 10-12 years old. In the summers we would spend time at their ranch riding horses and swimming and he'd want to...

    No, studies say they work about as well as placebo. And the person is taking one and simply "feels better", when they "don't work like that". Clearly it's in her mind.

    It's more likely the placebo effect. Anti-depressants have been found to be about as effective as a placebo anyway. Just the act of taking something you expect to help you is what helps. You might...
