    Laurierace, I moved to Colorado from California--couldn't wait to get the heck out of there (lived there for 22 years, never of my own choosing).

    I suggest you start a separate thread on this as...

    So sorry for the loss of your beloved jog cart!

    I would be tempted to turn it into lawn art, myself. I would not attempt to use any parts after such significant trauma.

    The first time I saw the movie was in New York City in 1968, in one of the grand old movie theaters. I am a much bigger fan of the book than the movie, but regardless I cherish the memory of the...

    I wondered if a manager would be the way to go, to avoid rushing into a sale. But ultimately it's going to be her choice, of course.

    I am guessing optimism, unless there is some quiet negotiation going on. My husband said "hey, call up John Malone--you used to work for him! Tell him to buy it!" Yeah, I worked for TCI back in...

    Chewie reminds me so much of Salt! When I canter Salt, I think "can a horse possibly canter this slowly?" Luke, however, reminds me of Crackers, of course. Hackneys are definitely the sports cars...

    There was an article in the Denver Post today (the Douglas County local section) about the Colorado Horse Park being up for sale. The current asking price is $11.9 million. Anybody have any spare...

    I really liked the suggestion that Suz gave.

    I have a similar problem, but with a co-worker, not a neighbor. I finally had to tell her "When I am sitting by myself in the cafeteria reading a...

    There are other businesses with as many hours and as little reward--look at the restaurant business, especially for the owner of a fast-food outlet. I had a friend who had a Quizno's franchise, and...

    My Hackney pony had a seizure--I have to say it was the most frightening horse experience I ever had, and I'm including some bad falls that don't come close in scaring me.
