    I'm glad to know I'm not the only one on the planet who hates salted caramel. Yuck.

    Fear of failure doesn't stop me from doing anything.

    Lack of money, family responsibilities, and old age keep me from doing lots of things, but I don't see how any of those things could be...

    Both of my kids grew into wonderful adults - although one took a much, much longer time than the other to get there. :)

    But, I have friends and relatives who have children who grew into adults...

    I'm at the age where I'm starting to think about retirement. As a surviving spouse, you can continue to receive social security benefits based on your husband's income. As a surviving live-in...

    At the last horse show I went to, there were two young ladies in the lower level jumpers who were wearing vests, so I think they are getting more common.

    I wear a protective vest. After the first...

    After just living with it for years, I finally talked to my physician about it. She sent me to a physical therapist who specialized in dealing with incontinence. It helped, but didn't solve the...

    So many different ideas on what is "right" and so much emotion! I just don't have the energy to spare to get that worked up about who other people chose to invite to their weddings.

    The language of many posts under this discussion has been quite loose with respect to exactly what SO and +1 means, so I felt the need to clarify my position.

    But there is a huge difference between a "significant other" and a "date." In the case of a husband, fiance/fiancee, long-term live-in partner, then I think etiquette does dictate the invitation of...

    I first saw it years ago on FHOTD. At the time, I believe it was explained as a condensation of "aghast" and "disgusted" into a single word: aghasted.

    I amazed at all the guestzillas who are so deeply offended at not receiving a +1 invitation to a wedding.

    As many other people have pointed out, planning a wedding is complicated and drawing up...

    I suspect that it was the specific clinician and/or horse. As far as I know, short-strided mincing gaits are not a goal of Cowboy Dressage.

    But, Cowboy Dressage and Western Dressage are...

    I'm laughing at this because just last week I was saying to a friend that one of the few certainties in life is that no matter where you board, sooner or later, the crazy always comes out. It may ebb...

    Not at all. I started learning Japanese a couple of years ago (I'm in my 50's). I'll never be able to truly speak it, but I just want to know enough to be a tourist. Ask directions, say please and...

    I've done the same thing, threedogpack. I've unfriended Facebook friends who repeatedly post partisan political crap (either side). And, I am getting much better at disengaging from, or simply not...

    I've lived in many different places in my life and the country roads around the Lexington area are by far the scariest of any place I've ever lived. Especially out in Scott County. I would NEVER ride...

    Duh. You've completely missed the point. The reality is that not every driver is going to do all those things you say they should, and if you're riding a bike on a public roadway, then you need to...

    I'm the same way. I live in an area with a huge number of cyclists. One of my coworkers doesn't even own a car, just rides his bike everywhere. A disturbingly large number of cyclists ignore even the...

    I don't know if it is technically cheating, but it is, by my standards, definitely wrong. But then, I also think it's wrong for a student to enter the high school science fair with a project that...
