    I live in Colorado, in a rural area bordering on a town. If you want trash pickup here, you contract for it privately. The trash companies offer recycling pickup for an additional cost, but we...

    Guilherme, what I think you are leaving out of your analysis is the fact that Congress has gone to a do-nothing approach that leaves a void. How can this country function with a legislative branch...

    I already got mine for this year. I am high risk due to rheumatoid arthritis and the meds that treat it, so I get the vaccine every year.

    I would get it even if I weren't high risk. I had true...

    Lilitiger2, I live in CO and my vet did not start recommending rabies vaccination for horses that don't leave the area until about three years ago. Before that, there just were no known cases. So I...

    The way I see it, the knee-jerk blind patriotism (my country can do no wrong, so there!) leads us into arrogance abroad, to the extreme that results in war (think about Vietnam or Iraq). When I was...

    I am 57 and still take continuous birth control. I have no idea if I'm still fertile (probably am as menopause hasn't started, due to the birth control), but periods horribly exacerbated my...

    I live in a nearby county, and what is happening within Jefferson County first started here. I am so glad my daughter graduated from the public school system a few years ago, so at least she won't...

    When I first learned to drive a stick, I needed to street park near my high school, which was on a steep hill. The first time I tried it I did a very sloppy job. When I came out to the car at...

    I live below the flight path between Buckley Air Force Base and the Air Force Academy. We get lots of screaming military planes overhead, especially during football season (those generals wouldn't...

    I've been driving stick since 1975 and will not drive anything else if at all possible (hate rental cars). Sounds like OP is doing great and got lots of great advice!

    Nobody should learn the way...

    So glad this is heading to a happy ending. Now, how do I get "Psycho Killer" out of my head?

    I tell myself I have to canter Salt in harness--because otherwise people out for a run pass us!

    He's a good boy these days. When we first started cantering, he offered a small buck or two at the...

    Saultgirl, by your response, I don't think my question was clear--let me rephrase.

    I am not allergic to vaccinations. I am immune compromised, so vaccines may or may not work for me. I get them...

    I have to take a lot of pills every day, which sucks (damned autoimmune diseases). Most of the pills aren't too bad, but it's the vitamins and other supplements that get to me. My husband found me...

    Saultgirl, how would you suggest this could work on a practical basis? I would have to just stay home, quit working (guess I'd have to go on disability instead of supporting my family), do nothing...

    How about we require all the anti-vaccination people to wear a sign (or a tattoo on the forehead) so those of us who are immune compromised or who have very young babies can stay away?

    I have a...

    While "drive mode" is a good idea for people who have no self control, I find it much easier to simply ignore my phone while I am driving. If it rings, I don't even pull it out to see who is...

    Ceylon Star, while I can ride after a fashion, I can't ride anything like I used to. I finally decided that the lesser version just wasn't acceptable for me. I can no longer handle the unexpected,...

    I had an extra car for several years. My Altima sucked in snow, but I loved driving that car under any other circumstances--had a V6, five-speed manual transmission (WITH a clutch, thank you very...

    So sorry for the loss of your beloved jog cart!

    I would be tempted to turn it into lawn art, myself. I would not attempt to use any parts after such significant trauma.
