    Factor 30 for day, and for night I put 50/50 coconut oil and shea butter in a little glass jar in the microwave for a few mins. and let it set. Best and cheapest night moisturizer ever.

    This is called living a principled life. Good for you. I hope the fallout isn't too hot, and you never know: maybe calling out the bully on his behavior is the kick in the pants he needs. Good luck.

    Well you liked SF and SF isn't those other places - go outside the city and things are quite different anywhere!

    I live in the city and wouldn't live in Petaluma/Novato/Rohenert Park/Marin etc....

    Do and say what will let you sleep at night over the coming years. The consequence is likely to be losing your job, but from my...

    Potrero Hill is awesome - I've lived here for 10+ years. But expensive! Try Mission Bay, Dogpatch and SOMA too for similar areas in terms of weather and walkability, tho P Hill is the best :D

    I boarded at a barn with a timer on the arena lights - after an hour they went out. Bit of a shock the first few times!

    My barn now has a sprayer on the hose that obviously shuts off if you don't...

    I think the issue might be defining "good care" - it's my understanding that Carl turns all his horses out a lot. In big fields. With friends. That's something that's very important to him from the...
