    How new can this be, it occurred when I was trick or treating 30 years ago?

    The cars are & were part of the problem - more opportunities to hit a little devil.

    Me- No.

    I've got a job that requires a security clearance. If I lose that, I can't work in my field, then I lose my job, my house, etc. I've been alone long enough that I know I don't need a...

    I don't know about H/J tails, but most of the ASB tails come from living horses. The hair grows back. My mare's tail drug about 5' on the ground when I cut it for a switch. I almost cried when I...
