    Honestly, I'm crazy enough that I might think about going bold, with a bit of saturation. I would skip dirt brown. And if you can, paint the entire thing.

    I've gotten tons of compliments on my half chaps - people lurrrrrrrrrrrve my boots, in spite of filth (we'll just call that "antiquing" for that "worn" look). I've worn show coats and show shirts as...

    Wow, mine takes so damn long to dry that I've taken to washing it pretty much only if I'm showing or if it looks awful. But since I use it over a square pad, it also doesn't get particularly dirty....

    Sophie, that's a cool idea. We just freecycle or craigslist everything here.

    My town provides us with trash and recycling (yes, you pay for it) but the city does provide recycling bins "based on...

    Wipe em down with a damp cloth to remove sweat and dirt, don't abuse them, and condition the insides (yes, the inside of the boot) with vogel conditioner or the Tack Box's equivalent every so often....

    Yeah, we don't get room to judge. We spend high dollars on a pair of TS breeches when a pair of $40 tuffriders would do the job the same. $500 is about average for a pair of new tall boots - that...

    It's actually Jewish tradition to bury the dead in a plain pine box, absolutely no fussiness, preferably in a shroud.

    It would generally be pine, although any wood is considered allowable as long...

    A lot of the docs hate the system, too. I know all of mine are frustrated as heck with insurance. But it can be very frustrating for me as a patient to need something - with an actual need - and have...

    I think at this point, it's possible but it's very different. For instance, I work through school - but I take a few courses per semester, not full credit loads. Ergo, it takes much longer, but it's...

    My boyfriend went to a wedding where they spent $100K on flowers alone. Billionaires or something. I had to ask, "are they still married?"

    Fortunately for all that fuss, yes, they are still...

    I change it a little. I do hunters and jumpers on the same horse. For hunters my contact is a bit looser, and I try to ask him to go in a lower, softer frame. For jumpers, we're more focused on the...

    I tried on a very pretty bra the other day, but then decided against it when I realized I couldn't handle FIVE hooks. FIVE. FIVE. It wasn't even a sports bra! I could barely figure out how to get it...

    If this doesn't work for you, don't do it. Try starting with beginners yoga, which is mostly stretching and low impact, and work up.

    My friend is planning her simple wedding. We discovered right quick that "simple" in DC is about $20K for 100-150 people.

    She gave up.

    If I had a $70 bra, I'd probably make out with it if that's what it took to keep it happy.

    I tend to buy mine from T.J. Maxx, whatever is pretty and fits. If my $7 bra has dryer hate, it gets...
