    Email (& Facebook, which I really don't use) are 24/7. I have friends all over the world; trying to email with someone 12 hours off my time zone at a time that is "polite" for both of us would be...

    I love my mother but I do not like her. Finding the perfect card is always tough because I don't want to lie, but I don't want to hurt her either.

    I was not the child she wanted and she made that...

    Agreed! The grob and the bank (of which we did get nice views) made a lot of difference in the outcome of the class.

    I, too, have been pulled into the precheck line before from the general line. I always find it especially funny because I am not even eligible for precheck.

    My suggestion for driving from NYC or Lexington with spare time would be to swing down to spend a day in Philly, then on to DC for 2-3 days (stay outside of town & take the metro in), and then drive...

    You can try to break down the barrier, I suppose, but as jess h was saying, perhaps that's just not her method of telling you that she loves you. There is the possibility that you will just make her...

    Last year I got a "free" turkey breast from the grocery store so I had lots of turkey leftovers.

    This year I'll do what I do most years: make a pumpkin pie and sit down with it to watch football...

    I sent an email out on Friday afternoon and six of ten recipients had vacation auto-replies on their email. Of course, three of those six are from Western Europe, so it is not unexpected this time of...

    Richard's horse was certainly game to try, though, despite the rails. The first two horses both said 'I do not think so, that does not appear wise' at the top of the bank.

    This is going to sound odd, but the "animated walk" is most commonly a 2-beat gait (i.e. a trot). In the rules, both a 2-beat and a 4-beat gait are allowable; in practice, I don't think I've ever...

    My feed just came back up just in time to see a horse come down in the middle of an oxer. Luckily, both horse and rider seem to be walking away okay. What a way to (re)start!

    One of my pet peeves is people peaking over my cube walls instead of coming around to the opening. Since I'm shorter than the cube walls (probably why I hate peakers - I can't do it myself), I'd love...
