    I love my HE front load washer and dryer, Maytag I think. Gets muddy trail running clothes perfectly clean, spins them very dry and uses hardly any water, in comparison to the gallons upon gallons a...

    It has been freakishly dry here in the PNW, with nearly 10 days of 90+ temps in the Portland area, and a month with no rain. There have been two major fires (20 acres, a house and church) since 5pm...

    8 weeks? You are brave! I didn't integrate my chicks until they were 14 weeks old. Good for you, but I just can't afford to lose them to predators by true free range. I have a large, 40 x 60...

    I have one here who doesn't care, and one who really does. I'm stocked up with various tools (ear plugs, sedation, radio) and mine will be indoors, as their pasture situation is not good for panicky...

    People in SC have advocated for years to have the flag removed, heck we have a Confederate Memorial or some such silly thing here in Washington that flies the flag, and folks have agitated for it to...

    Indeed, I feel as if someone took an extra helping of crazy this morning. And then decided to share with the rest of us.

    I find those truck nuts thingies just gross, frankly. I'd happily snip them off, given the chance. Most are on men's trucks and I figure they must have some real, um, deficiencies if they need to...

    Babygoose-- do you have any actual, you know, statistics, facts or reliable references to back up that claim? Because it sounds like you are parroting The Donald.

    Aidan Turner played Kili, not Fili, but yes that's him. And he's delicious to look at!:)

    I love this series so far--Cornwall is gorgeous and the story is just "bodice ripper-y" enough to be like...

    Not illegal in WA state to leave your hitch on. If it were, I'd have gotten a ticket in the 20+ years I've driven a truck with a hitch all over the place...and so would the bazillion other truck...

    I use the high country ones Equibrit listed (no inserts in mine) for hay, have for years. Sure, they flip a bit out, but it certainly contains hay and all the yummy seed bits and alfalfa leaves. I...

    I felt it, and I knew he'd hit my hitch. My fear was he was stuck to it! I am going to go out and look it over real well, just in case, but I am 99% sure the receiver and hitch are a-ok.

    Believe...

    On my way home from schooling day at a week long show, I was inching my way along the freeway (yeah...nothing like a 2.5 hour drive of 35 miles after a hot day of riding) when traffic stopped for the...

    Yes! Clear and hot here, so outside at dark is a good place to be. The planets align over the crimson, orange and purple sunset. Gorgeous!

    Well, a quick trip to the doctor/ER/Urgent care and an xray would answer your question definitively. Though, given your description I doubt you've fractured your bone.

    I trim my retiree's mane with scissors--it doesn't look great, but he has a lot of mane...on both sides of his big, warmblood neck. He sweats under it on hot days, so to the scissors I go. I kind...

    A lack of emphasis on SJ in training? From video and spectating, as well as riding in jumper classes against Novice/Training riders (outside of eventing) I see people who frankly don't have the...

    Oh, my--Poldark is a really bodice ripper! And, holy moly--Aidan Turner (aka "Kili" from The Hobbit) is delicious to look at and listen to. I'm really enjoying Poldark so far. I hope to see him in...

    Rode at 10--not too bad, just 77 degrees, but humid. I was soaked when done, but Mr. Horse got a good hose and scrape, then hand grazed in a breeze, so he was fine. Much cooler today, with clouds...

    Jenners-- I skipped my 1:30 lesson yesterday, but will ride at 10 today. My eventing vest is a special addition that I wear like a hot hair shirt on days like this. At the show, we'll have shade...

    What do you do with the frozen bottles--are they for drinking or so bun can lay beside them.

    Fan going in barn tonight, as they boys just gently sweat but do not want to be left outside. They...
  22. How do people deal with heat and humidity!!?? Ugh.

    Let me start off by saying this might be a bit self-pitying and vent-y. This is the PNW people, the west side: cool, misty, green. Um..not for the last three weeks! It is hot, dry, humid and did...

    A lot depends on your state's plan. I am a teacher in WA, and we have a two part pension/retirement plan. The state invests a portion (1% of my final year salary payout) and I invest 10% of my...

    That's my problem as well--I stick to the .90 and lower jumpers and we do okay there. And you know, I'm fine with that at my age and stage.

    For you, OP, it is practice, practice, practice...have...
