    What the...I had no idea people stole tailgates. Just when I think I've heard all the weird things. I guess I get if it's a schmancy one with a camera...but I hope they have a getaway vehicle...

    It's not you...it's the fantasy perfect lives people make for themselves on FB. I promise. The type of people who are secure enough to (a) admit their lives are not magical, (b) share their stories...

    Thanks, Ry -- I almost came back & deleted a bunch of my post b/c there is a lot of contradiction, but then...life is that way too. I decided to leave it because I felt that you & I had enough in...

    (hug) Whoever said you were in the same boat with a million other 20 somethings spoke truth.

    I just turned 36 (just as a reference). I enjoyed a lot of things about my 20's but stability was...

    Absolutely. 01' longbed 7.3L diesel F250. 22 mpg on highway empty -- gets better mileage than ANY of the SUVs or 1/2 tons ever did at any time. I commute ~20 mins to work every day. I can't...

    Not replacing the entire differential (unless it breaks), but the differential fluid. All of those are important & then some. If you haven't touched your tranny fluid, change that now! Hoses &...

    Well, HI! I didn't know you lived up here! *waves* I'm up north of Raleigh & yeah, I definitely don't go to the fairground except to watch the Benefit Grands Prix.

    I refuse to ever go back &...

    ROFL! You know, as soon as I typed that, I thought, dammit, I jinxed it. To be fair, farrier was due last week but couldn't move due to ice storm...but yeah, brought horse in to groom this...

    This is a good point, but I'm looking at it from a slightly different angle -- this is why you want to carefully research ANYTHING you feed to your horse & only supplement if the horse truly NEEDS it...

    The problem there is, yes, it's great that you noticed a difference in your horse. But can that be replicated? And there is no way to know that the "difference" was a direct result of whatever you...

    My gelding had to stay on Ranitidine for the latter part of his competitive career. my vet just called the Rx in to SmartPak & they not only ground it up for me, but added flavour. Yes, it cost a...

    See, I would strongly disagree with that. If a schooling event is well-designed & safe, I am among many who would support the lower cost event, and if it's closer, even better. Recognized events...

    Hmmm, haven't been able to get trailer out of driveway for 2-3 weeks, LOL. We're all so stir-crazy, we kind of break up into hysterical laughter when someone mentions horse show... Amazingly, the...

    Scubed gives excellent advice & you've been given good contacts. I'm ~3 hrs from Charlotte, but nearly that to CHP, there's nothing closer to me, there's a big open market on the south side of...

    This is very true & very serious. I'm an adult amateur, so I haul my horses both locally & have hauled as far as 5 hours or over the Appalachians. Not terribly often, I'm also poor, LOL, thank...

    Your plumber was correct on that part. The electric on-demand heaters really haven't reached the point where they are cost-effective or efficient enough to do this kind of job.

    This is my plan (hey, it's a 30-year plan...). No electricity used, heats water as it flows, so figuratively, unlimited amount per use. Just hook up your hose & go. Also portable (I'm a big fan of...
