    Game of Thrones. This series should have been something that I could really get into. But I came to a screeching halt with the 2nd (?) book in the series in which they ripped out and ate a horse's...

    Not true. At least not in the clinical sense. Autobiographies are written by a person about their own lives, but they need not be self-pitying nor self -aggrandizing. I don't know whether Ms....

    The new car issue of Consumer Reports has just hit the news stands. If I were in your situation, I would check it out. (Or just buy a Forrester.) ;)

    You just can't tolerate any kind of leaning on the bit. It is an evasion from using the hindquarters. I agree with the others that your problem cannot be solved by using stronger or harsher bits or...

    Oh good, I'm not alone then!

    I am listening to an audiobook of Landline by Rainbow Rowell and finding that it does not live up to the good reviews. I have not read any of her prior books, so...

    A lot of people felt that, obviously. I pretty much hated it. Just too self centered. I have to deal with too many narcissistic personalities as it is. :lol:

    Yeah, that scene really put me off her. The poor animal is suffering and yet, somehow, it all manages to be about her. I wonder how the movie treats that? Anyone see it?

    You miss my point. By "cutting people slack," I mean that I find it understandable and do not belittle them.

    I started boolean legal research on Lexus back around 1980. I'm old, and I am also an obsessive googler.

    But my husband and many others who do not read & write (and research!) for a living, are...

    I think that it depends on what the norm IS. If you expect it, then it does not come as a surprise. You are prepared- it's fine. It is when it is not the norm and you get surprised, and are not...

    I think that we can let some people off the hook. Slow readers/bad spellers are one category who struggle using google. Bad spellers can't find what they are looking for, and slow readers just...

    To me, asking guests to remove their footwear is kind of rude. The occasion that it happened to me, I was wearing socks that were embarrassing.

    Well, in most cases insurance will pay for damage, but will not pay for preventative measures. So there is no incentive for landlords to try to prevent the problem. They'd rather take the risk.

    But attacking people after a tragedy, particularly without knowing all of the details of the circumstances, in my view, is simply unnecessarily cruel.

    I think that the efforts to pigeonhole us each into "tribes" or "teams" fails as surely as it does in the world at large. It is just an attempt to create "the other" as an enemy or less valued group...

    But you just may not know how much load your roof can bear. Homes that are hundreds of years old, like in my area, may have substantial rot in the beams from ice dam leaks over the decades or simply...

    You may be surprised at how many people are simply not physically capable. The first snow that fell was 2'. It is also very difficult to find people who want to shovel or snow blow for pay. Oh,...
