    52 yr old Morgan gelding. He was retired from eventing at 35, from riding at 45, and was spoiled and happy until he had a stroke (or the equine equivalent of one) and was put down. He had a terrible...

    One of the problems I have with this employer-enforced policy is that you have to use THEIR doctors,not the ones who have treated you for years, not the ones who know your health problems and know...

    My employer started their "Wellness" plan a few years ago. You have a one month time frame every year to go through their doctors for a barrage of tests, and you save something on your insurance. ...

    I love my gas stove. It's new, has 4 burners and electric pilot lights --- but only one works. Fortunately, I rarely if ever need more than one burner. If the other burners are off, there is no...

    Express Scripts is terrible. I think my favorite story (hah) is when they decided that I didn't need to be on one particular drug anymore (I'd been on it for several years and it worked) so they...

    I agree with Anne --- toasted ravioli in St. Louis. And Imo's Pizza with it. And apples and peaches from Eckert's Orchards.

    I had chicken pox as a kid, and many people in my office have had shingles. But my insurance doesn't cover the vaccine, and my doctor says that it is too expensive to pay for myself. Guess I'll...

    I am not offended by Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Season's Greetings, or whatever else you want to say. I am a total heathen. But Christmas, like Valentine's Day and some other holidays, is not...

    Yes, this was a tragedy. And I understand people who say that the police officer should have shot at a leg, arm or shoulder rather than the torso. But what the officer saw was someone holding a gun...

    I am coming out of lurkdom to respond to this.

    Ferguson is a hop, skip and jump away from where I live. I have been there many times. The people who live there want peace and may want to protest...

    I have a written letter from the chairman who called me fat and ugly. HR has a copy of it. But the person in HR I talked to when this happened is no longer there, and they made it clear today that...

    Oh, and not a state school. We have no retirement pensions, there is a strange inequity in the pay scale, and the faculty (at least in my dept.) are nuttier than fruitcakes. You can't believe what...

    No union. Unfortunately, so much of the stuff I have goes back so far that the people I talked to in HR are no longer here --- and none of their records can be found --- convenient. Today HR sat...

    Oh, it's been documented, and I have been to HR countless times. They aren't interested in doing anything about it. Can't find a lawyer who handles labor/employee-employer problems except for those...

    Just back from another fruitless conversation with HR. I cannot understand how they refuse to do anything about the faculty in my department. I have been told, by the faculty, that I am "too fat...

    I had that problem for years, and the D&C was as much a treatment as a diagnostic. There was nothing wrong other than that I had a heavy uterine lining that didn't shed properly every month. Never...

    I love the look of Merrill's and Keen's, but they don't make them big enough for me! The only shoes I can find big enough are Blunnies or men's New Balance --- and in those I wear an 11 or 11.5, 4E....

    He's cute, doing great, and it looks like you're having fun! You found yourself a diamond! And you've had him just 18 months? He looks like a packer you've had forever! Congrats!

    It's like Bruce and the Morgans a few years back, when he was breeding Saddlebreds but registering them as Morgans. Several of those horses ended up as big time winners, and all of it was negated,...
