    I really liked the suggestion that Suz gave.

    I have a similar problem, but with a co-worker, not a neighbor. I finally had to tell her "When I am sitting by myself in the cafeteria reading a...

    There are other businesses with as many hours and as little reward--look at the restaurant business, especially for the owner of a fast-food outlet. I had a friend who had a Quizno's franchise, and...

    My Hackney pony had a seizure--I have to say it was the most frightening horse experience I ever had, and I'm including some bad falls that don't come close in scaring me.

    Way back in the days when I worked for TV stations, the broadcast clock for a given day ended at 5:59 am on the following day. I don't know if that's still true, but when I first started in that...

    I agree, it is common sense with a big pricetag for certification. Luckily I don't need to be certified since I do production support. Emergencies don't fit all that well into any framework!

    I have to second (third? fourth? fifth? I lost track) the Oyster card suggestion. We did two day trips to London by train four years ago, then we rented an apartment there for a week two years ago,...

    High Hat, I wish I'd been in this area back then. I really hate how Parker is all about development these days. I moved outside of town just to get a little space and a place where I can safely...

    I live nearby--sure wish I had $11.5 million lying around so I could buy it! I've been to so many wonderful events there. I sure hope it remains intact after sale.

    So sorry things haven't worked out for you. I have a feeling you live nowhere near me (I'm 20 miles outside of Denver) or I'd offer to take you out driving.

    I can't watch pulling any more. The horses seem to struggle so, and are so reactive. I agree with what Plainandtall said about the partnership--that is what counts, not sheer power.
