    The pony in that video is somewhat loudly marked, so I'm guessing that. The funny thing is a couple of the horses that spooked at him are more loudly marked than the pony, but I guess they haven't...

    Stale baguette chunk heated up a bit in the microwave and sliced and slathered with whipped cream cheese and chopped green olives, washed down with an icy bottle of hard cider. ;-)
  4. Tech Advice Needed: Cheap Android Tablet for Pandora Music In the Car

    Yep, the title says it. I don't have a smartphone to do this, don't really want one either, but I would like to have my free Pandora music stream available to play in the car, and I see Pandora has...

    I remember when Diane Sawyer wasn't **that** kind of journalist way back when -- she was rather classy. I am glad to hear she handled this sensitive interview in a more subdued manner.

    I think I will be more interested in a hybrid when mileage consistently gets towards 100 mpg and the prices start getting more competitive. I am squeezing 37 mpg out of my manual transmission 2002...

    Don't send the email. It will make a bad situation worse. I see quite a bit of tension over and above the situation with the jerk flipping your foal in it, by the way. I think you should seriously...

    I have long said that if I were to become extremely rich, I would have custom shoes and custom bras made. I think custom breeches and/or riding tights deserve to be added to that list, don't you? ...

    I buy flax seed from Winco as well, but as I recall, it's 87 cents a pound in my area. Still a bargain for the potential benefits -- my mare has been on it for just about a week and I'm already...

    My Appy mare has LOTS of nicknames, but one of my favorites is "my overgrown roany pony." :D

    Your tales of horses thinking they are "running loose" under your watchful eyes gave me a giggle. There is an ancient (he's 45 if he's a day - really!) Shetland pony at the barn where my mare is...

    The reason I prefer a window seat over an aisle seat (a middle seat would be like hell for me) is that it reduces the possibility of a stranger touching me or me touching a stranger by half. I tend...

    I teach college. Most of my students are just fine, but every semester, there are one or two that make me extraordinarily grateful that a semester only lasts 16 weeks or so. ;)
