    Good luck.

    You can buy sterile saline in convenient bottles that's meant for contact lens wearers (make sure it's just saline, not cleaning solution) at pretty much any grocery store or pharmacy....

    The modifier (that produces the very pale muzzle, flanks, belly) isn't unknown, nor is it specific to Haflingers. It's called pangaré.

    If the goal is to get a horse to Europe or the Olympics, though, better to experience a bit of clapping at home than to have the horse experience her first applause or distracting audience on the big...

    I think California's independent commission for redistricting has worked out very well in ensuring that districts serve the people rather than incumbents. I highly recommend that reform to the rest...

    I have a Bosch, and it was pretty cheap... I think maybe $600. This is the kind of purchase where Consumer Reports is pretty helpful.

    Those of you who feel that Michael Moore is all about making us feel bad about ourselves have a completely different perception than I do. Agree or not, to me it's very clear that he loves his...

    If you're talking about the claim that the curriculum leaves out important people like Jefferson, Franklin, King, that's false. The problem here is that the school board member doesn't understand the...

    So there are lots of things that make a stock trailer vs. a horse trailer. The slatted sides are classic, but there's also the option of different suspension, different divider types, etc. If you buy...
