    We spent three weeks in Paris a couple of years ago--rented an apartment in a fun neighborhood so we could immerse and really test the limits of my French-speaking capabilities. The one and only...

    When DH and I got married, we had a low-key wedding, paid for everything ourselves, and our invitations politely requested that no one give us anything.

    A good time was had by all (or so they...

    My in laws were always the "ugly Americans" when traveling in Europe. I cringed to hear their stories when they returned.

    My all-time favorite, though, was when they came back from an Alaska...

    I definitely rock the gray hair!

    I started getting my first visible gray in my 20's. I am 57 now and while I still have quite a bit of my original brunette on top, there is mostly gray...

    Oh, and Lauruffian, the pad goes under the saddle. I've never seen one inside the girth (although they could be out there, I just haven't seen it in my limited experience).

    I use a pad between...

    GTD, interesting that your mares don't pee in harness.

    Goodhors, I know your carriages are way higher and fancier than my little cart, but do your mares ever pee on the carriage or each other? Or...

    I can't watch pulling any more. The horses seem to struggle so, and are so reactive. I agree with what Plainandtall said about the partnership--that is what counts, not sheer power.

    The most...

    I never wanted kids, then I changed my mind in my mid 30s. Never liked dolls, always pretended I was a horse rather than playing house, hated babysitting, never liked other people's kids except my...

    I live in Colorado, where it is now legal. I have always been in favor of legalization. I grew up in the 60s and I totally agree with all who said that stoners are not violent.

    I absolutely...

    Back when I used to attend the occasional driving event around Colorado, there was a bicycle hitch that always showed up. It was quite large--I think ten bikes? That would definitely be a...

    Pads look great! I always wondered with breeching pads and mares, though (and with mares in general given how close one is to her butt)--what if she pees???

    My gelding will occasionally pee in...

    She is so darned cute!

    Have you thought about using harness pads (at least for the saddle and breastcollar)? I've never driven without them--my driving ponies seem to appreciate them.

    I started out with a degree in economics and worked in management in accounting for over 20 years. The degree actually makes sense because the university I attended did not have an undergrad program...

    She is so cute!

    I am glad she is doing so well for you. Driving saved my sanity after I had to give up riding.

    I am a big fan of no scent at all for men or women. Everything we buy/use is deliberately unscented. I can't even stand scented soap or laundry detergent. Sorry, I know that's not helping you at...

    I usually put weight on the leg or foot that is cramping, and that will stop it. But when it was happening a lot, I got really tired of having to keep jumping out of bed. I'd heard potassium,...

    JanM, there is an easier solution for fish hook earrings that seem to have a life of their own. There are wonderful little plastic ends that can slide over the fish hook and keep them from wriggling...

    macmtn, chimney for the woodstove is plenty tall but maybe a different cap would help. It's the tallest thing around because it goes quite a bit above the highest point on the roof, and we sit on...

    I love my '13 Ford Focus. I do not have transmission problems because it is a stick shift.

    We gave our daughter our '06 Mazda 3 and she is absolutely loving that car. My husband is still sad...

    You all are making me more accepting of my fear issues--if brave people like you can struggle too, then maybe I'm not the wimp I sometimes feel I am.
