    LauraKY, I'm usually right there with you, but where did that bit of pessimism come from? Poor dear.

    For me, the Universe is God. I feel it everywhere and am always in connection with other living things. I think this is what is meant by "whenever two or more are gathered...". Those two could be...

    I prefer a rope halter to a chain. Effective but less sharp bite and immediate release. YMMV.

    I think I love your trainer and I'm so impressed with you for carrying that very good insight forward.

    I don't know that integrity was ever mentioned, but horsemanship and common sense issues are at play here and this is a teachable moment. Empathy is good in moderate doses. Then add some...

    Offering insights into how to avoid another tough weekend like this is not "kicking someone while they are down". Frankly, that is just silly hand-wringing. Compassionately speaking the truth is the...

    Ok, good piece of information, Bogie and SNL, thank you. Without that, I had to think she was a little nutty. Sorry CandC, honest, ignorant mistake. Carry on.

    Is it just me, or does cloudyandcallie sound a whole buncha crazy? One person can not convict another, for starters. Candc, if you are trying to make a case for women being rational, this could be...

    Trak,
    I like men a lot. My dad and grandpa were great and I'm married to the same guy for 20 years. But I have to say that the "70% of divorces being initiated by women" statistical fact may be...

    I hope VX is shown some financial gratitude. Seems appropriate.

    Yes. Yay Eboshi.

    It isn't going to be fun to say (unless you are a complete psychopath) and could blow up in your face, but when it needs to be said, adults privately say it as frankly as they...

    I put everything on my cards: groceries, feed, vet bills, continuing education trips, and more. I don't put anything on there that I wouldn't already be purchasing. I'm just wired to not be much of...

    Al Capone was brought down for tax evasion, not employment policies, but the analogy still holds true.

    Excellent proof of my point.

    In closing, those steers are treated too roughly. We can do better.
