    Nope, haven't seen that one, but it sounds great. My personal JJ watching is much more limited than Mom's, since I still have a real life.

    I vaguely remember reading about an incident years and years and years ago. Not sure if it's the same one you are referring to or not. Some big competition. The horse's name was Genesis, forget...

    They vet check several times during the ride, and your horse has to be cleared by the vets at each check in order to continue.

    I remember at WEG 2006, Zara Phillips was late starting the stadium jumping course because she didn't hear/wasn't ready for yet the buzzer. She was in gold medal position but didn't have that much...

    I've never tried knitting yet, plan to some day, but I am so thrilled for my winter crocheting project. I'm going to finish Mom's afghan.

    Also, at the finish line, the horse must be vetted again and judged still fit to continue. If you get there and have run the tank to zero making it, you're eliminated.

    I have been to only one wedding in my life that had an official meal served to the guests. All others were simply cake receptions. Have never been to any with a bar.

    The only Eagles song (that I know is an Eagles song; my education also tips more classical) that I really like is Desperado.

    I don't like Hotel California. I'm confused by it, which is...

  18. Can Anybody Explain This Song? Hotel California

    I heard it on the radio just now while out running an errand.

    Yes, it's catchy. But every time I hear it, I wind up with my summary thought being, "Huh?" I get the general "trapped" idea, but a...
