    My favorite "nesting season" story comes from my job at a manufacturing plant. This pair of mallard ducks decided to leave their eggs in the mulch right near the factory entrance, no protection...

    Turned out?? As if he's some fully-formed, solidified person? I am not saying his teenage behavior has not been obnoxious, but please. Who among us was the exact same person now as we were upon HS...

    I would do $100, but not cash. I'd ask where he's going to college, and do some online sleuthing, see if the college bookstore offers gift cert's.
    Or five $20 GC's to a local restaurant in his...

    White is generally not recommended for photography-- unless you have a dark jacket over it. All-white tends to wash everything else out. No big patterns either.

    This is the perfect outfit. :lol:

    My guess: Likely they see a company that has too much debt, and servicing that debt was depressing their profitability & ability to borrow for new investment in the biz. An investment firm often...

    Many if not most investment firms are hands-off, they don't want to get involved in managing the operations. They just look at revenue, costs, debt ratio, etc, and typically do not have long-term...

    I think it's hard to get constructive feedback from kids-- too much conflicting social pressure. Are the most of the kids old enough to have smartphones? Or will parents with phones be there? What...

    Nowhere did I say in my post that I've decided to vote for her. My post is limited to rendering judgment on her ethics or lack thereof.

    I really hate the way it looks. And I'm open to hearing EVIDENCE that influence was leveraged inappropriately in exchange for the speaking fees/donations.

    When you pay cash for something (itself a marker of age) and it includes a Susan B Anthony coin you had laying around. And the cashier has no idea what it is.

    Look at the Duett saddle lineup. The Sonata is billed running slightly small for the rider due to the cutback gullet, so the 18" might work well. Duett's are really really great fit on...

    I think this course of action is way over the top given the facts that weknow. Good luck finding some other barn who wants someone like that as a boarder. And what's happened is simply not "fraud." ...

    So glad you brought this up. It's time for Scarlett O'Hairy to be muzzled and she absolutely DETESTS it.

    She's constantly snorting, I think she feels like her breathing is restricted? And she...

    Not worried about leg hazards. Agree about the wiring-- I'd want to make sure the wiring and outlets are correct for a wet environment and GFI protected.

    Wow, I agree that kind of settling in a relatively young house is concerning. I forget the orig details, but I think this is adjacent to your current place, and "impaired" in terms of market value...

    I'm glad you brought up the health care issue, as that was my first thought (before worrying much about ruining his training): Do they know enough to recognize a "NQR presentation" before it's...

    Bet that will look awesome. Do you have that same wood trim in the room adjacent to the bathroom? I really really want to paint the door and trim white--the vanity and walls will really pop. But...

    Wow, quite a strong finish!
    Knock on wood, but I haven't had a road kill/death march kind of race thus far. Each one I've managed to put in a pretty good pace for the last split--adrenalin rush...

    -Could replace the light fixtures and faucets for <$100
    -Paint the tub and sink white. Lots of how-to DIY sites on the interwebz.

  25. Right on Hereford, Left on Boylston

    Anyone else see the women's finish at Boston? Incredible head-to-head matchup for the last 1600m, even more incredible sprint to the finish.
