    I thought the original "The Shining" movie was filmed in England? But it seems to me the later miniseries was actually done at the Stanley. I'm too lazy to look it up right now...

    My younger horse is in his mid twenties and pulls a cart for me--still loves a fast canter. My older horse is probably 35 or 36, hasn't had molars in ten years, and rules the corral and pasture with...

    I only use unscented shampoo and conditioner on my hair due to allergies, nothing else, and my haircutter does the same. She knows I don't like my hair blow dried, so she just does enough to keep it...

    I adopted my two horses from a local rescue. I was a bit concerned at the contract but it all turned out well. I've had these horses over eleven years now with no interference from the rescue. ...

    I will persist in calling my family's two horses, dog and rabbit rescues. I did not personally rescue any one of them, but all of them came to us from the people who did. The two horses were in the...

    I agree with everything Dancing Arabian said--very wise and well put.

    As I think I've mentioned to you before, OP, I gave up riding due to disability, and it was heartbreaking, but I felt much...

    I live in Colorado, in a rural area bordering on a town. If you want trash pickup here, you contract for it privately. The trash companies offer recycling pickup for an additional cost, but we...

    Guilherme, what I think you are leaving out of your analysis is the fact that Congress has gone to a do-nothing approach that leaves a void. How can this country function with a legislative branch...

    I am 57 and still take continuous birth control. I have no idea if I'm still fertile (probably am as menopause hasn't started, due to the birth control), but periods horribly exacerbated my...

    I live in a nearby county, and what is happening within Jefferson County first started here. I am so glad my daughter graduated from the public school system a few years ago, so at least she won't...

    I've been driving stick since 1975 and will not drive anything else if at all possible (hate rental cars). Sounds like OP is doing great and got lots of great advice!
