    If someone called me in the evening and asked me to pick out hooves, I'd probably offer to do it for $15 also. I agree that it's "I don't want to do this" money. It involves the special effort of...

    I am quite liking the Darn Tough socks also. They're made in Vermont. I like the hiking socks - not sure the thinner ones will hold up, though they do promise, and I do happen to have a couple of the...

    This is so heartbreaking. I send my best wishes for the best possible outcome, hugs, love, and strength. I can't imagine going through this, and I'm so sad for Susan and David.

    I think it's totally reasonable to be curious about the job Ms. Katz-Hernandez does and how her deafness might change how she does it versus the previous ROTUS.

    But the blanket assumption that she...

    So here's how you need to go from here.

    1. Decide if you still want the house or not. Former rental isn't as scary to me as some people have said, but the sellers are clearly not people who can...

    I also had this experience in college (probably in part because the dorm I lived in was originally built when the school had only male students). It was surprising for the first couple of days and...

    The nice thing about these synthetics is that they tend to be more stain resistant than the old cotton ones we wear. Also, having just one has served me well for a time - I save it for the times when...

    The 2015 Outback has a very tight turning radius compared to my original. It's one of the things I like best about it.

    Truly I think going to the other property to care for horses will be more of a barrier than you expect. When you board you also get freedom from building and maintaining the ring and the ability to...

    You could certainly find OTTB in that price range in Northern California. I've seen some quite lovely horses go thru CANTER here.

    Follow these guys, but maybe wait until you're ready to be in the...

    My dad traded in his Accord for an Outback and says it's more comfortable and a better ride. I'd definitely say it's worth a test drive if you're looking in this space.

    You don't mention where you live, but where I live, I would never plant tall grasses on purpose for a viewscreen like that. Fire danger one, seed spread two. Some sort of shrub would likely work out...

    I had my first Outback for 19 years, put over 280,000 miles on it, and was still sad to see it go when I replaced it last year. (It was still running.)

    It was comfortable and fun to drive and had...

    The best way to get one of these shirts on a budget is to buy them off season. Prices are great in fall and winter. :)

    Another option is to keep watching at places like Sierra Trading Post, which...

    And most scholarships and tuition discounts only apply to the first four years, so that 5th year is especially dear, often doubling a student's final student loan bill.
