    It was finally a nice evening with no lightning, so I went for a bike ride instead of cleaning the cart. Karma bit me--broke a spoke a mile from my car, and I can't walk a mile due to rheumatoid...

    I lived in a house that kept getting hit by lightning. It was on top of a hill, the tallest thing around. The weird thing is that everyone else's electronics got fried each time it happened, but...
  4. Speaking of biothane harness--came home today to sparkling clean harness!

    The harness-cleaning fairies definitely visited my house today. I've owned my biothane harness for about six or seven years, and I must confess, I've never given it a really thorough cleaning. I...

    I've been on Humira for RA since spring 2003, and it made a huge difference in my life. I had given up horses and took them up again (riding instead of driving, but still, it was a wonderful,...

    Oh, the weight tape of death! That one just amazes me. My pony usually doesn't wake up from his during-grooming nap if I weight tape him when he's tied. But if I try to do it without haltering and...

    My driving pony will brave nearly anything--fire trucks with lights and sirens going, eighteen wheelers hauling bouncy backhoes, trash trucks compressing trash, road graders, motorcycles, bicycles,...

    Could you ask the people who want to buy you gifts if they could donate to their favorite charity instead?

    I totally hear you on not wanting to give updates. I have a disability but try to live...

    I am also on the fence on this.

    I have an eight- or nine-year-old flip phone that works just fine for phone calls and texting, which is all I want from it. I do not have a data plan. The way I...

    In my world, it would have been me buying both the car AND the horse, and then husband would have threatened to divorce me! ::D

    When I lived in Pasadena, CA, there were several small private roads in town where each homeowner owned to the midline of the road. I lived on one of these roads. I must admit, I got a lot of...

    OP, I have enough land for horses, but your new house is a lot bigger than my house! Mine was considered a tear-down when we bought it, but we gutted it and redid the entire house instead. But it...

    One of my co-workers called me regarding some work we are doing together, and he started singing "The Girl from Ipanema" and it's been stuck in my head ever since. Ohhhh, it hurts! I told him I...

    Yikes, I just noticed that I had a tense failure in the title of my post, and I can't fix it. Please forgive me--I do know far better! I reread that thing three times and somehow did not see the...
  17. Colorado folks--how did everyone enjoying last night's weather?

    I thought after such a mild winter and warm spring (at least until last week) that we might be safe from spring blizzards. Nope.

    Husband went out and blanketed the pony when the snow started,...

    I think the way out of self-imposed victimhood is baby steps. Take an action, any action, that will result in positive change. Then take the next, and the next, and the next.

    I would say I was...

    Starhorse, I feel the same as you do. I have a family member who insists that "natural" remedies, including diet changes, would cure me. She was offended when I asked her to show me the scientific...

    One more comment: tests for some autoimmune diseases (at least for RA) are not conclusive. I'm not sure about the others. You can have a negative test for rheumatoid factor and still battle major...

    I was ready to take on the carriage protestors, but there wasn't a single one in sight. Dang, I brought my pepper spray for nothing!

    Don't worry, just kidding about the pepper spray. But I would...
  22. I went to NYC and got to see the Broadway "Wicked" production! Took a carriage ride!

    I just came back from a great trip. My daughter was griping last December that she wanted to go to New York City, but none of her friends could afford to go. She was willing to go alone, but really...

    I am nearly 58 and was diagnosed with Hashimoto's when I was 35. RA followed (extreme symptoms at age 39, diagnosis eight months later), then Sjogren's.

    I find the Hashi's to be a complete...

    My pony, Salt, has three distinct herds. We worried about him when we had to euthanize our elderly mare, leaving him an only horse, but he just went and found other friends.

    He has always been...
