    Most of the sober alcoholics in my life are not religious, and neither am I. But the common thread for us is being big fans of AA and Al-Anon. My loved ones who fight this battle have many years of...

    Something fun to do with driving horses is to teach a three-point turn. I did that with both my driving ponies, so we can turn around in pretty limited space. I take Salt on a bridle trail that can...

    I used to always use it, but my husband insists it is bad for the brakes to use it all the time. I mostly park where it's totally flat (garage at home and garage at work), so I let him talk me out...

    Events that led up to me giving up riding in 1999 and taking up driving instead:

    I carry the entire Boulder Symphony in my car. It gets a little weird when the tympani guy really gets going...and it gets crowded having that many people in a Ford Focus.

    Just kidding, of...

    I just bought the same one as eks posted, and I am happy with it. Sometimes it can be a little tricky to keep it from erroring, but it's quick enough that I don't mind waiting a few minutes and...

    I thought the original "The Shining" movie was filmed in England? But it seems to me the later miniseries was actually done at the Stanley. I'm too lazy to look it up right now...

    My younger horse is in his mid twenties and pulls a cart for me--still loves a fast canter. My older horse is probably 35 or 36, hasn't had molars in ten years, and rules the corral and pasture with...

    I only watched a bit of the video because I was having buffering problems, but the part I saw looked great--he seemed very relaxed.

    I had this problem when I was training Salt, my current driving pony. He had been neck reined under saddle for years and years and I didn't have a surcingle. Every time one of the lines touched his...

    I only use unscented shampoo and conditioner on my hair due to allergies, nothing else, and my haircutter does the same. She knows I don't like my hair blow dried, so she just does enough to keep it...

    I adopted my two horses from a local rescue. I was a bit concerned at the contract but it all turned out well. I've had these horses over eleven years now with no interference from the rescue. ...

    I do system support. My regular hours are great--I got to choose them (7:30 am to 4 pm, and I usually try to walk away for half an hour to eat lunch and read for a little while to decompress).

    I agree with everything Dancing Arabian said--very wise and well put.

    As I think I've mentioned to you before, OP, I gave up riding due to disability, and it was heartbreaking, but I felt much...

    I live in Colorado, in a rural area bordering on a town. If you want trash pickup here, you contract for it privately. The trash companies offer recycling pickup for an additional cost, but we...

    Guilherme, what I think you are leaving out of your analysis is the fact that Congress has gone to a do-nothing approach that leaves a void. How can this country function with a legislative branch...

    I already got mine for this year. I am high risk due to rheumatoid arthritis and the meds that treat it, so I get the vaccine every year.

    I would get it even if I weren't high risk. I had true...

    The way I see it, the knee-jerk blind patriotism (my country can do no wrong, so there!) leads us into arrogance abroad, to the extreme that results in war (think about Vietnam or Iraq). When I was...
