    I agree that she should look into using the equity in her home - but I suspect that may not be an option given her description and the fact that this hasn't been explored previously. At that point,...

    I'd recommend Lyon (France). I lived there for a few months, and really enjoyed the city - great food, good culture, lovely people and a city with lots of history. I ended up heading to Edinburgh for...

    IMO, there is no right or wrong way to do a wedding or a bachelorette. Its just about communication and having reasonable people in your life. If I got the cold shoulder from a friend when I couldn't...

    I have a 2010 Mini Clubman and its a great car and very fun to drive. That said, I would not buy one if I had young kid(s) and/or was looking for something that would accommodate two adults + a kid +...

    In fairness, I think leaving food for your boyfriend while his mother is ill and he is at the hospital is different than a friend who has just had a child. That said, you are quite correct that it is...

    I disagree that she would have know how the drop would have been score as she left the first water complex. It may be easy to see in replays but it's less clear when you are on the riding and it's...

    In my view, the problem isn't quality of horse or even, strictly speaking, quality of rider...its the relatively few number of miles that the average US rider gets at the top levels. Basically, its a...

    You are obviously entirely welcome to your opinion about whether or not additional safety features should be added to cars. What I will never understand, however, is the sort of close-minded and...

    I haven't gone back to double check, but I thought Doug had indicated that looking at an interesting bordering lot (i.e. to their leased farm) is what caused them to discover another property that...

    That's great. But that is you, as one seller. You are also, if I understand correctly, a professional seller. That means (or should mean) you have developed a business model that works. I would...

    Not to nitpick, but unless I'm missing something, you have given made some pretty contradictory sounding statements. One one hand, you dislike being asked if prices are negotiable. Yet say you are...

    I think one of the issues is that often riders shopping for horses ultimately have two budgets, the "I'd find a horse in this range" budget and the "for the perfect horse, I'd find a way to add a...

    Right or wrong, I had the same impression as Anne FS. And I think its a good reminder that just because we think we have communicated something in an straightforward and appropriate manner, doesn't...

    For the FEI divisions, at least, it would be 25 penalties for DR and 21 for a broken frangible pin, I believe.

    You need to retain a lawyer. I'm not sure what discussions you have had previously, but you reference 'speaking with' attorneys. This suggests to me that you may have had casual discussions, and not...

    I had similar issues earlier this year (at 31) and booked an appointment with a physiotherapist to see if he had any thoughts. Turns out that in addition to the issues I have with my tight IT band, I...

    I agree that katerine's first post pretty much nailed it.

    Don't be surprised if you feel disproportionately exhausted at times - even if the flight is short and doesn't involve a time change. For...

    I agree that the conversation sounds like it was, in large part, your mom projecting her own issues onto you. That said, she probably also cares about your happiness and just wants you to make good...

    As someone who recently looked at some young horses (and ended up buying a 4 year old), I think it make sense to get a basic health exam (eyes, ears, heart, wind, etc) and some basic x-rays. I would...

    Agreed.

    For me, however, I'd make an exception if the company's website was down on the day of payment. For instance, my internet provider has a miserable bill payment website. It is often buggy....

    I'm pretty sure I wrote my bar exams in yoga pants and a hoodie, and would not have been happy to be required to wear a suit!

    There are a ton of Ogilvy pads at my barn, and I've ridden many many horses with the Ogilvy half-pad. I agree that it generally raises the pommel, and that the memory foam compresses...but I...
