    I'm so sorry for you and the dog. Jingling that the pup is fine and the owners learn better for the future.

    Book recommendation for 10yo boy?

    I got my housemate's kid into horses a bit by starting him on the Black Stallion series and then this summer taking him trail riding a few times. He really likes animals and while I'm not sure he's...

    Thanks for the reminder you can use it on all sorts of things. I've been waffling about ordering some (can't decide on a scent!) but I don't have much tack to clean ATM. But I do have some nice...

    This is super helpful. Assaulted is just the word for a lot of the scented laundry products. :)

    Has anyone tried the Woody's Confidence blend? Citrus and rosemary. I like citrus, and I usually...

    I have an otter box a friend gave me that I am pretty happy with. It allows access to the necessary ports but has some kind of rubber or silicone flaps over the access holes so if it is not connected...

    Try to find someone whose skin chemistry makes stuff tarnish in no time flat and get them to hang on to them for a few days. My MIL couldn't wear silver at all until I showed her the aluminum foil...

    I want more feedback about the scents. I'm pretty sensitive to fragrances. How strong are the scents? Should I just be safe and get unscented? (I'm undecided on which scent I would try. Probably not...

    I wasn't saying he had to do that, I was using it as example of a less "traditional" division of household labor that, depending on exact situations in the family, might work out better. Sometimes...
