    Ewwwww. Sorry, canNOT do it. No runny yolks for me! We lived on a farm eons ago. Just not my thing. But then I don't like anything that looks like a dead anything, other than fruits and veg.

    I'm a mid-November baby and I recommend holding your kids back. I didn't want to be held back either - I was given the choice and took it. I was smart (still am, most days) and did well academically....

    Separate bank accounts. Really. Ok, I know that's a little weird but we've just never integrated them. You should at least have some say over a portion of what you make - as long as you can afford it.

    I cannot imagine spending an additional $450 for grooming. That's about $5500/year. Maybe my answer would be different if I didn't have two. Or if I had health problems. That said, some days I'd love...

    I would absolutely get proof your mare died. Surely they called a vet or someone to dispose of the body? I would sort that out sooner rather than later, while memories are still fresh.
