  1. Poll: Why, oh why, do designers make women's clothing...

    Why, oh why, do designers make women's clothing without decent pockets? Deep pockets in pants, like male pants have, not these 2-3" shallow pockets that things can fall out of. And pockets on...

    The people saying two year olds should not do cross-unders are probably right, at least while the molars are erupting. But then the very same thing can be said about using a bit when the canine...

    I probably don't agree with most of you, and this is why.

    Beards are so useful to hide faces. For instance, without his beard my husband closely resembles Perry Mason from the old TV drama. I...

    I have MS. I had 5 horses when I finally got diagnosed 21 years ago. I had horses to give up owning horses, even though I have my own land, because as my MS progressed I lost my strength and...

    Back when I trained my own horses decades ago, I used the bitless I had (English Jumping Cavesson Bridle, side-pull) to teach the horse what I meant with the rein aids. Once they understood the...

    What I find interesting as a minor hobby, is to try and see if the old European myths and modern discoveries about Homo sapiens have anything in common. You know, sentient hominoid creatures like...

    Until we have full employment (at living wages) here in the USA why, oh why, should we welcome foreigners to take the jobs here so they can have a better life while American citizens slip into...

    I'm old enough to remember the papacy of John XXIII. I lived in Catholic countries then though I've never been a Catholic, so I keep a minor interest in the Church. Every single Pope since John...

    I think that there is a very valid fear in the USA if we open our borders to all the non-criminal people that want to move to and live in the USA that our population would mushroom to India's or...

    Before the Roman Catholic Church spread around the world it had over a thousand years of practice in Europe destroying what was left of the old ways in Europe after the Roman Empire.

    Have you considered that since your horse is fit, and otherwise obedient, that your horse may be experimenting with doing an "air above the ground" in response to your driving/restraining aids?

    Okay.
    Personally I am descended from Western European peasants (Switzerland, Germany, England), not the nobility. I figure that if the human pedigrees went back far enough I would find out that I...

    African people could be said to be suffering from PTSD, oh say from 4-5-6,000 yrs. ago up to today. The slave trade in Africans started LONG before they were forced to the Americas. During these...

    As a young child in the 1950's only absolute perfection was acceptable by my mother, as defined by my mother. Micro-management, shaming, nothing I was or did was ever good enough.

    Ah, but the...

    One time long ago I had a stud colt in my backyard about 3 miles from downtown Charlotte, NC (Chantilly neighborhood). After much thought and research I decided to use peat moss for bedding.

    My case is sort of similar, I have MS.

    Dear Conservatives,

    There are MANY types of Liberals, we are not a monolithic bloc. By damning all liberals with a broad brush you are alienating possible supporters in the future.
