    No, I haven't experienced this as a problem, nor have I ever heard of it being a problem. I'm in northern Ontario, Canada, so I have plenty of winter experience.

    I think flinging it around/dragging when it's really hot, sunny & dry is the best way to avoid problems with worms.

    I've just heard that
    1) it's a plot to wipe out a large segment of "poor people" and
    2) "they" (the powers that be) are going to come out with a cure, except it will really be 2 different shots -...

    Also, you will need to not breathe in any aerolized particles/droplets, possibly. That sort of complicates things, doesn't it?

    They say you can't catch it from sitting next to someone on the...

    "A Knight's Tale" is one of my favourite movies. I bought the soundtrack, too.

    I also get annoyed at the unnecessary "neighing" anytime a horse walks by in a movie.

    I would call if there was any indication, but I certainly will not call while I'm driving. Driving while talking on a cell phone is just as bad as driving drunk. It kills people.

    Yes, I would also rather err on the side of too cold. If they get too hot and start sweating, then they can really get chilled.

    I really don't see a lot of panic. There is a lot of discussion, which is great. Which is normal.

    I think it's silly to compare a contagious disease with a very high mortality rate and no...

    Grass clippings clump together and ferment. On a mowed pasture the clippings are generally spread out and dry quickly enough so as to not cause a problem.

    I think it's only a problem if you are cutting very long grass which may clump and start to ferment (which I'm assuming is the gist of the above-linked article). I mow while the horses are out...

    According to the chart, my horses should have been blanketed almost every single night all summer. We had only a few nights that didn't drop below 50.

    Ours did drop a little bit here in the last few days, actually... I noticed it at about $1.34/litre yesterday, which is the lowest I've seen in a while.

    I think there's a huge ($$$) difference between *just* losing income, and losing income PLUS having to pay medical bills. Don't you?

    Taxes cover all the "basics" for health care, but some people carry additional insurance coverage for prescriptions/eye glasses/dental care. If you can't afford your prescriptions/eye/dental care,...

    I did the quiz and it listed Salt Lake City, Spokane and Seattle, but I'm from Northern Ontario, Canada. Not sure if that counts as "close".

    I think you're right. Well, mostly. I don't think most Canadians think their government "loves" them, but for the most part, we seem to have faith that they are not "out to get us". From where I'm...

    The money I saved by not having kids!!




    Aside from that, I can't imagine a *more* selfish reason for having kids, than to secure care/funding for your elderly years. (Overall, bad...
