    With legal skills, you might find some opportunities in the administration/development/fundraising end of non-profit organizations, so if there's a cause or two that are near and dear to your heart,...

    I visited my family in Michigan in June 2011. I haven't been able to afford to visit again since, though my financial outlook is finally improving now that the colleges are adding back all the...

    LOL, keeping in mind for the OP, that "big city" of Kalamazoo is all of 74,000 or so (okay, okay, Holland's about 33,000). Other than Detroit and Grand Rapids, there aren't really big cities in...

    I agree with Buddy Roo, Lansing is underwhelming. It may be the state capitol, but it is not particularly, err, vibrant. Ann Arbor is wonderful, Grand Rapids is enjoyable, and let me put a plug in...

    Oh so true -- but whittling down the obligations that we can certainly can be a sanity saver! :encouragement:

    Well, this is a super low budget option, but -- the Faded Glory jeggings from Walmart give a stretchy yet substantial riding jean feel for $12.97 a crack. They come in light and dark denim, black,...

    Very interesting research! As a side note, I think another area of sport related to animals that is more LGBT accepting is dog showing.

    Mango looks really nice -- it seems to have quite a few of the features of Duolingo, and you can access it free through public libraries.

    PS - I just logged into Duolingo and checked what language...

    I'm really surprised Duolingo does not offer Greek. They've been adding languages quite rapidly, but I know they rely on community participation to help build some of their features (on the free...

    Hope all goes well with your Fiat 500! I still think they are cuter than heck. My best friend's sister suggested I try a Chevy Spark and I found a 2013 model with less than 17K which I bought and I...

    I am so very sorry for your loss of your dear mare. She sounds so very special.

    When we have so many losses in such a close span of time, we don't get a chance to recover well from one loss before...

    I did some free lessons in Spanish on Duolingo that were really fun and did more for me than other methods I'd tried. It's worth a look -- can't beat free. :D

    I was born and spent the first 36 years of my life in Michigan and now live in Southern California. I love both places, but California is definitely my home now.

    A lot of what it's like will...

    I'm going through this with my 2013 Chevy Spark (less than 17K on it, so darn near new in my eyes). I drive -- A LOT. Something will happen, sooner than later, especially since the ranch road is...

    Sounds like having no life outside of caring for the horses and facility to me. I wouldn't do it.

    There's an Arab lesson horse at the ranch where my horse is boarded who's 30 if he's a day and is still full of pepper -- and there's a quarter horse mare the same age who is just as game and...

    HAPPY UPDATE: I tried the Chevy Spark and LOVED it. I am now the delighted owner of a 2013 light blue 4 door hatchback with 5 speed manual transmission that had less than 17K miles on it. Carmax...

    I'm 53 and have noticed a couple more things getting creaky and achy lately. I just had to change my glasses prescription and the doc said "aw, you just need a little more oomph in your script than...

    What a crappy situation. I am so sorry you are stuck in the middle of those two boneheads' p!ssing contest. Small town politics can be vicious.

    Their barn, their rules. You don't know the background or rationale for why that rule is in place, but being sued, threatened with a lawsuit, or simply insurance/liability reasons wouldn't surprise....

    Yes, but my budget is limited enough that I hate to spend money on transfer fees when it could be going into the actual car instead.

    I'm taking a look at a Spark next week. I'm not sure when yet, because it's being transferred from one Carmax location to the one nearest me. Keep the info coming though -- you all helped me dodge a...
