    Most snakes where I live are not venomous. There used to be rattlesnakes in my area many years before I moved here, but they've been pretty much wiped out, to the point that I've never seen one in...

    What drives me nuts is people who assume their auto-on headlights come on in adverse weather, and often they do not. I drive in snow and rain a lot, and it doesn't take a lot of effort to 1) check...

    I hate shower doors, living in the land of hard water. We have shower curtains in all bathrooms where we live and use curtain liners with a nice looking outer curtain. Liner gets stained or too...

    I should add that cortisone shots for other issues have been rather hit or miss for me. But for the trigger finger, it was a resounding success. So unless you've had that particular trigger finger...

    What puzzles me is that I have never heard of people clearing a house roof in Colorado, where I live. We can get several feet of snow with fall or spring storms, and I have personally experienced...

    So sorry for your loss.

    I had a similar situation in November, except at least I knew it was coming--had to put down my 30-something year old mare.

    I never would have thought my one remaining...

    I'm in the camp that isn't into the Hallmark holidays. My husband does things every single day to make my life easier, or things that he thinks I'd just like (he's usually right). And he goes out...

    We have buried two horses on our land--one four or five years ago, and another last November. It's legal to do so here, and while I feel that the remains are not the animal I loved, and therefore...

    I was born in 1957, and I remember getting polio and smallpox vaccinations. We got those in school (I think first or second grade, maybe). I don't remember getting the measles vaccination, but I...
