    I think it's a great idea. Perhaps try to assemble a "bit bucket" so you can show people what's out there, have them guess at what the different bits are, etc.

    Have done it with a friend; we always secured the stirrups very well and put a sheet or blanket on the horse. We used a stock trailer. No issues reported. I am not sure I'd do it with a huge-block...

    There are also ways to go through Canada and not get one's passport stamped in Cuba. I have a coworker who *is* allowed to visit because she has relatives there, but she knows the other paths, too.

    I'm Jewish. I was not raised that way (Dad was nominally Christian, and Mom didn't care, so we did Christmas) but am more serious about it now.

    I get very tired of people who just don't get it. ...

    We have one, and this was the only soda flavor I liked, too.

    This has been in the works for quite a while. Cuba is not what it was during the 1960s, and the political landscape in Miami is not what it was, either.

    Sigh, too much is familiar here.

    Especially the saving receipts for EVERYTHING.

    And the ability to get trash *almost* but *not quite* to the trashcan.
