    Everyone who has experience with public boarding stables knows that there is a disproportionate number of crazy people (barn owners, boarders and trainers) involved. I don't know why this is true,...

    In dressage, one word names are perhaps the most common. There is nothing feminine about the word "December." You could also use "Decemberist" which is the name of an Indie band, as well as the...

    It really is like saddle shopping. You find one you like, and that fits great, and after a while even new bras of the same make and model are uncomfortable. When I went from a B, to a C, and now to...

    I think the fact that there is no jury makes it much less likely that Pistorius will become SA's O.J. Simpson.

    If you like popularized science, try Bill Bryson's book, "A Short History of Nearly Everything." Fascinating, funny and not too hard to understand for the layperson.
