    Sigh.

    I have gotten angry letters from a family member. My grandfather, nonetheless. ALL CAPS NO PARAGRAPHS MINIMAL PUNCTUATION angry rambling letters. About stupid shit, like how I said "Dear...

    Yes.

    Although there is an art to it, the basics are relatively simple. There are lots and lots of good websites out there, and books too, I recommend picking one up. Dry material, but worth it. ...

    Ugh, yes. Took me over a year to find a job. Thank god I had a decent paying student position ($15/hr) that they managed to turn into a temp job for me. I got a "real" job just before the temp...

    Yep, this is how it is in my local places as well. Needs to be in some sensible increment of a yard, otherwise they have this weird little leftover scrap at the end of the bolt.

    The "Actual Size" stickers just SLAY me: http://goo.gl/bJhbyg

    :lol: I laugh my head off every time I see them. I am easily amused.

    Nope.

    The (2014) Juke has 10.5 cu ft of space with the seats up, 35.9 with them down.

    The (2014) Clubman has 9.2 with the seats up, and 32.8 with them down.

    The regular Cooper has...

    Again, fun, does not compare at all to a Cooper S. (Even the Abarth version is slower.) Just darling, probably worth a test drive, but will be more in line with the non-S Mini.

    Which I drove and...

    Well....your last paragraph is all those that you talk about in the first paragraph are saying. Literally no one is saying that it's impossible. That's silly. But yes, it's a lot harder.

    Well yes dear, they have turbos. :lol: They beg for a lead foot. But are perfectly capable of getting the same mileage of the non-turbo versions, if you drive like a sane person. (But who wants to,...

    I graduated with minimal loans, taken out mostly for books each semester. (sub-$5000) I otherwise had a full ride. My parents weren't able to contribute much, apart from continuing to house me.

    I...

    Just want to clarify my post and say yes, of course, it's possible. Particularly if you're going to school in a cheap area.

    And if you were talking about either having to sell your horse of a...

    This isn't the answer you're going to want.

    But I'm going to put on my wise elder hat and say: don't do it.

    It's not worth it.

    Yes, I did it. And it was hard. It was nice to have the...

    Phew, I am glad that track shut down. Firstly, because I am 10 minutes away and would surely come home with horses on the regular. (Ten years ago, I had just bought my very first pony!) And second,...

    Or annoying. In my office, someone randomly showing up would get them crossed off the list of potentials immediately. Ain't nobody got time!

    OP, I always just kind of accepted that anything sent...

    Well, someone was a moron when changing the battery in that Beetle, and it wasn't the people who designed the car. ;) Unless you're talking about a vintage one, that is NOT how you change it on any...

    Well obviously. I paid $1300/mo for "in barn" training last winter, and would expect to pay something similar PLUS event expenses on top of that. A foxhunter on Long Island who I was referred to...

    We have a great local place near us. But I will fess up to only having the huge tractors that get top priority. :lol:

    I would show up at the John Deere dealer and pitch a fit if I were you. Five...

    The thought of having to do my makeup on a daily basis just so that it's less obvious when I do it for an interview makes me want to throw up. :lol: Just do it in the car before the interview, if at...

    This is not realistic if you're going to 5-10 interviews, which is pretty usual in my industry when job hunting. Most people get barely more than that in vacation time, and may have less if they...

    I wouldn't say long lunch. That's just suspicious, unless it's really that casually done at your office.

    I just say "appointment", in a manner that suggests that I have literally no interest in...

    This is true, of course, but the argument is that there's a pretty big emotional/self-control side of debt repayment as well.

    I've seen it at three or four farms now, and it's looked like crap at each one. Like Frog Pond mentioned, this wasn't 20 year old fencing, this was stuff that was relatively recent, and wasn't just a...
