    I gave up on the book 2/3 of the way through and just read the end. As you say, I was sick of the characters and really didn't care what the heck happened to them. The movie was "ok;" I thought...

    My family would have perished long ago if it were not for Aldi. One of my happiest days was learning they were building a new one 2.5 miles from my house! ?? I am amused because now "everyone" shops...

    Oh, Jane... *sigh* I know only too well how you are feeling. I am SO sorry this happened! I, too, started riding at age 5, rode a lot as a Junior and other than a 2.5 year spell in regular lessons...

    OP, I know what you mean. I had a very bad fall five weeks ago and broke my back. Two compression fractures, to be exact. Just don't bounce as well at 50! Anyway, I had surgery to stabilize the...

    I have always sent hand-written notes. My current job was a promotion so I was able to put them (I did one after 2nd interview, too) right on boss's desk. But when I got on with the company in the...

    I saw him at work in the Ohio State Large Animal Hospital in 1985! I think he was a prof there. People already spoke of him as The Guy, though. I didn't know he was involved with the Alydar case...

    First of all, that is one heck of a swanky affair you are going to - the best of NYC in one wedding weekend! I certainly couldn't afford to even be a guest! :D I live in the Midwest but until I moved...

    I wish you the very best with your new venture! Home horse-keeping is awesome but definitely challenging (especially when starting out), and I'm really glad that you have the collective wisdom here...

    I noticed Noble Outfitters has a new line of muck boots out called "Muds," that you could take a look at. Dover carries them and probably others. I don't personally own any of the brands so can't...

    Hi, OP. I understand what you're trying to figure out and that's great that you've built a composting system already. I want to address a couple of concerns you have about traditional compact...

    Hi, Arabz - glad you are interested in a manure spreader! If you are in the market for a compact but powerful machine that can handle any type of bedding you throw in it (including mixed-in hay,...

    OP (and Amaranch), many people ask your question about ground drive vs. PTO manure spreaders. They also ask what size spreader they need, what type, what options are available, etc. To help answer...

    I was at the Region 5 Final. Smaller group than I've seen in years past, and a testing first round course that resulted in a LOT of refusals. At one point there was a consecutive string of four or...

    You might want to have that checked out. Someone has mentioned pilonidal cysts; those are always at the end of the tailbone, which sounds like where your mystery bump is located. Not the same thing...

    I've fed Kirkland for years now. Doggie (11-yr-old Springer bitch) used to get Adult Chicken Premium. Then they got in the Salmon kind (I believe it's the same stuff as "Taste of the Wild" brand) so...
