    So true. A beard makes a guy look older -- IF they're under 25 years old. After about 30 years old, it just makes them look ancient. Mustaches are just gross, and beards, well, they never fail to...

    Ask her if she wants you to pick up anything for her, since you're going to run down to the soda machine/coffee shop.

    Just to be clear (as one poster noted earlier), the kid did not come up with the Venn diagram herself. It's an old one that's been circulating for a long time.

    Foxtrot, what in the world does Morocco have to do with Saudia Arabia? I didn't see anything connecting either person with Morocco, and the farm is in Riyahd (Saudia Arabia). ...

    C&C -- It seems odd that you are harping on this "southern" idea of yours when the OP made it clear in her very first post that she is in the south. :confused: Evidently, it's NOT all sunshine and...

    I didn't read the last blow-up in that thread, but it was probably past time to shut it down.

    ANY thread that gets THAT long is just too unwieldy, regardless of content. Even some of the...

    You didn't say what country she's from, but I suspect that it may be a poorly-translated colloquialism in her language, along the lines of *I'd die for that dress!* style comment for us.

    The only way to avoid moldy leather would be to live in a desert or store it in similarly dry conditions, although you'd then need to condition it periodically. You might be able to use some type of...

    When I was looking at barns before I moved my horse, I ruled one out solely because they allow the horses to run up to the barn and into stall by themselves. It sounded like a recipe for disaster to...
