  1. That article is so devoid of actual statistics...

    That article is so devoid of actual statistics and factual information as to be useless, too. Nebulous and excitable, but not particularly well written. So, the young, healthy folks get to support...

    Yeah...our rates (Regence Blue Cross) went up by the same amount as last year...and the year before...and the year before that. I guess I'm not seeing this 78% increase yet. Or at all. My coverage...

    When are these increases supposed to happen? This year (first year) or next or "sometime"? I've heard this all along, but haven't seen it happen for my insurance yet. Who will get the increase?

    Sure, Forester is the official lesbian car of Portland...so I'm pretty happy to drive one (though I'm not on that team) as a few of my favorite people are lesbians. Stable in the rain, wicked on snow...

    Not from Seattle, but I think Gig to JBLM might be more doable than north to Renton. Twotrudoc will be a font of info on this topic as that's her neighborhood. I'd want out of south Texas too. No...

    I will only own Subarus. On my second, a 2007 Forester--what a work horse! Zero repairs, 29mpg on the freeway, powers through bad weather, fits 5 people, huge cargo area. Did I mention the...

    My drag queen friend bought his shoes at Nordstrom and his outfits were sewn by a skilled dress maker...not much would off the rack fit a 6'3" willowy man! My mom worked at a fabric store for years...

    Lovely ladies! All our cats have to be indoors, even though we're on a Farmette-- lost too many to coyotes. So our five (two older ladies- brown tabby and gray tab long hair, one mid age Bombay...

    Yeah, should have known not to look at this while my 8th graders were in the room. I suddenly had 20 kids crowded around my computer ( so much for narrative writing!) laughing like crazy. We all...

    I have those exact same stalls (minus the feed door....oh, if only I'd ponied up for those!)!! Mine are going on ten years old and look fabulous. You'll be so happy with them. Your barn looks...

    glfprncs--my district did away with that weird "6 week/Christmas paycheck" thing a few years ago...so much better!! We are all on automatic electronic pay to our checking accounts (no paychecks...

    Teachers generally get paid once a month, last working day. I've done this for 22 years. Everything is paid on the first--I request all my bills be 'due' before the 10th of the month, then...

    Same set up in my barn. My components aren't that high off the ground, but my mats havent moved at all. You can always wedge some mat pieces under that gap. Interlocking mats can still slide. ...

    Tyvek or the like? When does it sweat/drip? Mine will if it is really foggy out, but just a tiny bit. My ceiling is bare metal with that plasticky material over it.

    Pretty sure MVP is in western Oregon. Wood fencing is essentially a waste of money here--too wet, rots in a few years. Most barns built now are metal pole buildings, so are arenas. I'd suggest...

    True on cheaper to buy already built. You can simply call a few pole barn builders and ask prices of different sizes of buildings. If you can do the finish work inside -- stalls and such, it will...

    Bless you! Not a job I have ever wanted or had. I'll take a classroom of 8th graders over your situation! Stay tough sister!

    Wooly bears are tiger moths in the making! They emerge from eggs in the fall, overwinter in caterpillar form-- freezing solid and using cryoprotectant to survive, the pupating in the spring to...

    I love it so much, that I use it as the "fantasy" movie that caps off that unit in my Lit classes! So fun to introduce a new batch of kids to it each year. I struggle not to quote movie lines...but...

    Is human flesh "white meat" or "red meat"? Do we taste like chicken or pork or..? (no, I'm not crazy...I promise!)

    Where do fruit flies come from!!??

    We teach it. I promise. I think texting--the physical act of touching those tiny "keyboards"-- or typing on tablets, precludes proper punctuation being easy. I always use it online/phone, but then...

    Athletics in high school determine the early start/early out for many districts. Our HS begins at 8:00, out at 2:30. Our MS kids are on buses around 7:00 at the earliest, and ride with HS kids.

    My middle school actively encourages dressing up for Halloween. Don't "do" holidays? Be a super fan of your athletic team or wear school colors. Yay for inclusion! Everyone wins! I'm Catholic...

    Darn it, Petey Pie! You and your logic and facts.... Stop that!

    Yup, we get to ride on several areas and trail systems in the monument. And if it weren't protected, those trails would be long...

    I live in my haz-mat suit, they're quite fashionable but often spook the horses and put the hens off laying.

    I do actually, seriously live in the Columbia River Gorge Natuional Scenic Monument,...
