    I've never had police ask me where I was going, except the one time it was relevant. I'd forgotten to renew my registration sticker. Cop pulled me over, got my license and reg and asked me if I...

    At your age, endometrial cancer is extremely unlikely. Please try not to worry, I know it's hard. I've had a couple of female biopsies (breast and cervix) this past year, I've reached the not so...

    The health insurance subrogation people can be persistent. My stupid neck thing after coming off a leased horse (the bill was a whopping $125 for a PCP outpatient visit, but I guess they were...

    Oh, gosh, no! Things like toilet seats and arms on windows and vent adjusting are just not on my radar for things to worry about. I certainly wouldn't say anything at all...being annoyed to the...

    The claim codes, and how they respond to them, is interesting. I've had two "accident related" claims in the last five years. Not counting broken fingers, no one cares about those, doctors or...
  7. Yes they will! I've been pestered by my health...

    Yes they will! I've been pestered by my health insurance company after any "accident". There is a box on insurance claims that says whether the problem is accident related or not. That triggers...

    It could be your oven, if the temp is really uneven. It's an electric oven? Electric ovens are usually more even that gas, but we had inconsistent power at our old house (very old, ill maintained,...

    I don't think about it much. I often get a big, fat, roaster...Purdue or the local store brand. 7-8 lbs. I take out the giblets and reserve them for making soup. Stuff the cavity with onions,...

    Oh, I've been asked to sign a waiver at any barn that is a "business" before I rode or handled a horse. At friend's personal barns, no.

    Health insurance really has nothing to do with liability insurance (which is what the church bus people and barn owners are concerned with). Liability insurance is expensive, with all kinds of...

    I was expecting something totally different with the lead in ;). I think you look great on that pony! Very nicely matched. You look nicer on the pony than I do on the 16hh mare I ride, my upper...

    The people saying those things are miserable themselves and don't believe that you deserve to be happy in your job either. Well, you DO! If you hate your job, don't think twice about looking for...

    :lol: I'm pretty sure there is not! I've never understood the point of "cap sleeves". They don't look good on anyone. They make skinny arms look skinnier, fat arms look fatter and they fall...

    Yep, you are right. I'm tall and slender too and I can't buy much off the rack. I hate it when I see a dress on a display in a store and think, "Oh, that looks like it might fit!". Only to walk...

    That would be a great idea. Design women's clothing with seams planned in such a way that they would be easy to alter in the right places. For extra, super, duper, bonus points, offer free, turn...

    I have the same problem with LL Bean and Lands End. In theory, I like some of the clothes, but they fit me terribly. Too short and too boxy, no matter what size I try on. The cut is just off. I'm...

    Can you put the horses in during the day and then out at night for the week? Maybe stay home the first day to see how scaredy horse does? It may be that you are anticipating a problem that might...

    Yes, but for women's pants, you need to add in a measurement to catch the hip to waist ratio. Men don't need that, but it is crucial for fitting women's pants and jeans. Two different women with a...

    Oh, yeah, and there is a downside to the predominance of glandular tissue that makes breastfeeding and milk supply "easy", as it was for me. At 52, with still predominantly glandular breasts and a...

    "Doffing" the suits has to be the hardest part.

    I've told this story before, but I suit up in Tyvec to pull poison ivy by hand (it grows up our apple trees, so I don't want to use herbicide and...

    Wow, that is NUTS. If I were a taxpayer in that school district, I would be rip, roaring, mad. 21 days of paid leave, with substitute costs, and disruption to the kids....because a teacher had been...
