    It used to irritate me (at 5'9") that everyone, even tiny people, thought they needed a big horse, making it harder for me to find a tall horse! I thought I needed 16.2 + and that's what I rode for...

    If you have FIOS, it cannot work that way. FIOS comes to the house on fiber optic cables, not traditional cable. Now, once the fiber reaches your house, it attaches to the ONT at the wall. From the...

    Just this summer, we removed a seriously failing rail road tie retaining wall...about 30 years old and severely rotted, the hill (fortunately not huge!) was on the verge of falling into our driveway....
  5. The Mile a Minute vine does have little barbs,...

    The Mile a Minute vine does have little barbs, not as bad as a rose or blackberry, but you need gloves to pull it. It can grow up to 6" a day! Fortunately, it's an annual, so the way they've been...

    He was within his rights to shoot the dogs, and doing so probably wouldn't have gotten him fired.

    Posting pictures to Facebook? DUMB idea and I can see why he was fired. He represents the Fire...

    Yep, same here, with Verizon FIOS. Last summer, Netflix slowed to a crawl, buffering so frequently that it was unwatchable. Verizon was throttling Netflix and holding customers ransom to extract...

    Same here, 25% for delivery. The places that deliver to our house do not charge a delivery fee. House is 600 feet from the road, drive is narrow and unlit. Turning around at the top isn't the...

    No tips necessary. When you become a regular client at a barn, a year end gift, possibly cash is appropriate.

    You can absolutely take lessons with different instructors.

    Don't take the...

    Yes, some animals just won't back down and will escalate if you try physical force. The mare I lease now has plenty of opinions and makes way more than her share of nasty mare faces, but she WILL...

    It's not this stuff is it?

    EVIL, EVIL weed. There is a concerted effort in Mass, as well as other states, to eliminate it. When we first bought this...

    I would like to invite this lady over, apparently she likes to drink a lot of wine and make things out of grapevines ;). She seems to have plenty of her own vines, though.

    I never thought of using them for crafts, because, well, I'm not crafty at all. But, look at all this stuff people make from grapevines! Maybe I'll put the boy to work on this, he's very good at...

    Your "grapes" could be Canada Moonseed if they taste that awful. Our wild grapes are strong tasting and more bitter than domestic Concord grapes, but they still taste distinctly grapey and are good....

    1) Try to stop being passive aggressive and deal with things directly, yet very politely. Passive aggressive behavior WILL make others defensive, even if they don't normally tend to defensiveness. ...

    Same here. The mare I lease believes herself to be the Queen of all Equines and hates all of her subjects with a passion. If I got on her for every awful face she made, I'd be doing nothing else. ...

    That's what we did last year. We keep the grape vines off our apple trees and don't let them encroach into the yard past a certain line we've drawn in the sand for "NO vines past this point". That...

    Some of us over 50s have been finding things on the Internet, and it's precursor, Arpanet, since before many of the whippersnappers were even born ;). Archie search engine anyone?

    Argh! Google isn't "wrong" or an illegitimate way to get information. It's as legitimate as going to the library and looking things up or phoning a knowledgeable friend. It's JUST a search engine,...

    You don't actually need a senior specific dog food. People used to think that senior dogs needed less protein, but they don't, they actually need MORE to maintain their muscle. Our 18 year old ACD...

    When I was younger I lived in several two bedroom apartments with only one bath. 90% of the time it was not a problem, depending on who you are living with. If it's an SO/Spouse, you can still use...

    I've seen Newman's Organic food in the supermarkets here and my son gets Rachel Ray Zero in the supermarket in NC. Both are decent foods, not in quite the same league as Orijen, etc..., but...

    They really look ALOT like a Beval Puissance boot, styling wise. I have some in my closet. They are discontinued at Beval, but still exist as Soubiracs, sold in France. The measurement of the slim...
