    Animal Planet runs old episodes of Dirty Jobs pretty often. I saw the one where he is at the Kentucky Equine Research Facility, which was very cool. My favorite ones are where he ends up off his...

    Demidq's story reminded me: I fell off in front of a group of 4H kids who had come to the barn for their merit badge. Was giving a jumping demo on my dead honest eventer. The fence was awkwardly set...

    Eons ago, a group from my barn went cross country schooling. I was riding a game little mare that I was thinking of buying, and she was a star. Jumped a small revetted ditch (had a log on the takeoff...

    They're keeping you in a sling that long? I think I only had to be in mine for a week after my surgery, and they recommended after that that I keep it in the sling if I was resting or around the...

    I broke mine two summers ago (screws and a plate, like yours) and I think I stayed out of the saddle for 6 weeks. It will take a while for the bones to heal, but the plate should stabilize and bridge...

    Like that Seinfeld episode: "Elaaaayyyynnneee, you gotta see the baby!" (in a very nasal Northern accent).

    The "separation of friends" will pretty much follow geographic lines: he's staying in Texas, and most of the people we saw here are people he works with and their spouses. So that won't really change...

    OK, this may sound a little silly, but lately when I've needed to take my mind off things or stop a train of thought, I've been working on a jigsaw puzzle. It allows me to completely focus, I feel...

    Hang in there, Mara! Therapy and psychiatry WORK, but they can take time, and it sucks to be in that period where you're waiting for things to start turning out right.

    Can you see the therapist...

    Sounds like it might have been an individual franchise owner. I could see it slipping under one person's radar more easily than a company one.

    Maybe pay to have someone come clear their driveway/shovel walks? Might be a nice break for them.

    I like to cross-reference Angie's List with my insurance company's list of providers. Some of the reviews are a little sparse and, like any review, you have to take them with a grain of salt, but it...

    Also, if you're interested in contemporary poets, I like Natasha Trethewey very much. She has a book of poems based on a photograph of a New Orleans prostitute (Bellocq's Ophelia) that is quite...

    Here's what I've got, thanks to my school's belief that memorizing and reciting poetry in front of the class was good for building character (I can't really tell if it was effective in this goal, but...

    Was Dressage and CT the one with the funny last page called "Follow the Bouncing Hunt Cap?" That was a great magazine. The copy editing was a little spotty and the layout was not very polished (I...

    Hmmm, the ones I've gotten from Costco, both recently and about a year ago, have been great. Soft and absorbent and no lint. They are the Charisma brand.

    Looking on the Costco site, it seems they...

    Anyone headed from San Antonio area to Montgomery, AL? Know it's a long shot, and I've got a tentative reservation with a shipper, but thought I'd throw this out there.

    Most of the schooling shows that I've been to allow you to enter single classes within divisions, so I imagine that should be fine. Is there a trot pole class that he might could dip his toes into?

    I think the important thing that everyone is missing here is the disturbing elevation in the trend of people strangling in their sheets: won't someone think of the sleepers!

    Awesome stuff though!

    Love The Big Lebowski:
    "that rug really tied the room together, man." When something has gone haywire in my life.
    "don't be fatuous, Jeffrey." When someone says something snarky.
