    That's why I said "in terms of practical or biological relevance, those scores are all pretty much the same."

    Yep. If I open a discussion and find that most of the page is filled with posts from people I have on ignore, that's my sign to just back away slowly, closing the door quietly behind me as I leave so...

    Yes. But fortunately for me, there is a dentist in South Carolina and a crooked attorney in Texas who share my name, so the Google results are all about them. However, if you Google my name along...

    As a kid I was taught "Rise and fall with the leg on the wall."

    Once more sophisticated movements were being taught, it was "rise and fall with the leg on the outside of the bend."

    I don't...

    I'd say that your response to this is the key to making the decision of whether to keep or sell. Is this a deal breaker? Do you like this horse enough to redirect your goals to match her...

    There used to be (maybe still is) a newsletter called The Caretaker Gazette that lists ads for caretaker jobs of all sorts (from farm sitting for a few weeks to full time live-in personal assistant...

    The article is a good example of some of what the author is railing against. It's nothing more than a collection of sound bites, anecdotes, and opinions. It doesn't provide any kind of factual...

    Is this one of those totally impractical "you have a magic money bag that refills itself every night while you sleep" things?

    If so, I would buy that little place currently on the market just...

    Ice cream used to come in half-gallon packages. Now, Blue Bell is the only one sold at my grocery store that is still a true half-gallon. Blue Bell has even turned this into an advertising slogan:...

    I read an article about this not too long ago. Companies have identified the preferred market price for different items and instead of raising prices, they're reducing package size to keep the price...

    I'll sign up.

    But then I've gotten so jaded and cynical that I've been mostly opting out of political discussions lately anyway.

    I have an AQHA registered (not an Appendix) horse who does perfectly well in open jumpers up to 2'-2'6". He'll never be a 3' horse, but we can truck around at lower heights very successfully, and I'm...

    If you want to get my attention and have me remember you when I get around to building a barn, the best places to establish an advertising presence are the feed store, the local tack shop, and the...

    There seem to be two separate issues here. The fact that your daughter is 12, has been riding for 4 years, and is just learning to canter says to me that she has some special needs as a student....

    I think you and I just define "guest" differently, BeeHoney.

    To me, the term "guest" implies a high degree of involvement on the part of the host. To stick with your gym analogy, if my cousin is...

    I once had a woman fall off a horse during a test ride. She vastly over-represented her riding abilities. The poor horse did exactly what she asked him to do (canter), she just didn't mean to ask...

    I agree with most of what you said, but disagree with this interpretation of what "leasing" represents. Leasing a horse is like subletting an apartment, not like having a house guest, and it has...

    When leaking started to impact my life, I brought it up with my doctor and she sent me to a physical therapist, which did help. The physical therapist taught me how to do Kegel exercises properly,...

    I hate the Halos commercials so much that I will change the channel to get away from them. They all make me want to grab the kid, smack him, and send him to his room for the rest of the day. And...

    Small steps. Every time, push just a little further out of your comfort zone.

    If all you do the first time is get on and get right back off again, that's fine.
