    You can buy high-quality, small stones and have lots of bling at a lower price or lower-quality, large stones. To have a larger, high-quality stone, you'll have to pay more.

    I missed any comment about "easy". I disagree that such name-calling necessarily stems from family values or unshared values. So much of the time when I've observed that type of assessment, it's a...

    Well, my former farrier fired me for using someone else in a pinch. I really liked the man - both for his work and as a person - but the sensitivity of his ego is ridiculous. New farrier, who knows...

    There's a slipper slope there, to be sure. I certainly understand the representative's position. I also understand the counter argument.

    Depends on Odie's size. With so many different ways to tie a wrap-sling, I'm sure there's a way to comfortably accommodate a 4-legged passenger. And if not, how entrepreneurial are you? There...

    My RE charged $95. That was the cash price. I'm sure the charges to insurance were probably higher, but the only itemized invoices I saw were for non-covered visits.

    There's nothing wrong with not wanting to be an engineer, and there are plenty of careers available outside of STEM.
