    Why don't these people ever find a non-aggressive dog to champion for?

    They are drawn to aggressive dogs like moths to a flame.

    Good luck with that.

    My current BO has a variation of that philosophy (I want people to be able to keep a horse [even if they can't really afford it]) and it's put him several thousand dollars in...

    Yep and any trainer that doesn't have their own barn probably isn't worth spending the money on. The very few I've seen would guarantee you a pink ribbon - not because of politics, but because the...

    I get the feeling that many think it's "cool" to complain about Christmas.

    I was pretty darn happy it turned out to be a neck/shoulder issue. Mine are pretty fixable without surgery & I haven't worn a brace on my wrist in probably 5 years. Great excuse for a monthly...

    To put it context - there are a few hundred people at the party; if one (or 5) people didn't run up to the front of the conference room to pick up an unwrapped prize, it wouldn't dampen the mood.

    I do a lot of computer work (engineer/tech editor = huge reports) + needlework etc. Periodically my hands/wrists/lower arms hurt.

    I had a generic diagnosis of carpal tunnel years ago. By...

    No kidding. I think it's most of Va, or at least the eastern side. When I moved my mare a couple years ago, I was paying $600 for field board, without a stall, east of Richmond. The barn did have...

    I've got a tiny galley kitchen. I have a high shelf, about 6' up, for cook books. It's basically invisible, doesn't take up space. Depending on your layout, it might be worth a thought.

    I ran into this when I worked at the shipyard. My boss was always asking me to help the other guys in the group do stupid stuff. I was the only woman in the group and a little sensitive about being...

    Thanks guys, it makes me appreciate our party.

    We do grump about it - it's downsized considerably over the years. When I started, it was a full lunch (meat or chicken) + desserts. It's shrunk...

    I'd rather get cookies & a cheap bottle of wine than have someone donate to rescue in my name.

    I don't like rescues.

    There's also that wonderful feeling of being the only one going home without...

    The OP's horse is likely half saddlebred, so double the snorting & blowing. That does tend to freak people out; most TV horses don't do that.

    I was actually (pleasantly) surprised that no one...

    There are at least 4,000 Sultan bred saddlebreds out there.:lol:


    The breeder was into futurity colts & the new owner said she wanted a project. Not sure that equals a seller who 'should have...

    My last train trip included 3-4 hours in delays (in the summer). It was not fun. No amount of scenery could have made it fun.

    When we finally got to Union Station, some idiot had all of the...

    I know a guy/family who used to have a Premarin farm. He used registered Belgians and Haflinger mares and bred them to nice registered stallions. His colts were decidedly not rescues. When...

    My great uncle had standardbreds years ago, I think he usually had at least a trotter & a pacer. Somewhere along the line, he got of racing.

    In his 70's he got into TBs, that he raced at...

    Dear BO,

    Your daughter having a riding lesson at another barn doesn't absolve you of the need to feed my horse dinner. Failure to plan on your part now means I drove 30 min to find a mad, hungry...

    I've never had a problem with my self cleaning oven. I leave the racks in.

    My grandmother did lock a cherry pie in Mom's oven though, very similar to the chicken thread, except it involved a MIL.

    PV=nRT

    The Ideal Gas Law applies to all gasses, nitrogen included. As temperature goes down, pressure goes down (since the tire volume is essentially constant)

    Could be worse, I take Skelaxin. It was approved back in 1962, but I don't think it was available as a generic until 2010. At some point I did get it a s $4 generic, but usually it runs from...
