    Ugh. Homesickness -- the ever continuing battle. I haven't lived within a 9 hour drive of home in 10 years, I haven't lived within a 6 hour flight of home in 5 (and always requiring crossing an...

    Any idea where she came from (what state)? She's an absolute dead-wringer for a mare my friend pulled out of backyard at age 2. She was WILD but holy cow could that mare move, and jump!

    No idea...

    It can work. The ex not being over it AND being a friend of yours would be trickier though. It's one thing her being not over him...it's another that you're also friends with her. How much does that...

    I really enjoyed this article!

    The "bid" and different responses (active constructive, passive constructive, etc) really break down daily interactions. I definitely was lucky growing up with...

    Just be careful what you write! My sister did the hiring for an account executive at her firm a few years ago and had an interview with a woman on a Friday. The woman wrote a hand-written note...

    Update!

    Well my mare has had 6 weeks off with long hand-walks 4x a week. We had our follow up appointment today and the news is great! She's now weight bearing fully on both hind legs, and is reaching...

    I'm asking myself the same thing. Every. Single. Day.

    I feel like some of my friends have it completely together. The beautiful apartments, the adorable puppy, the brand new car, vacations to...

    If you have no existing connections locally then you're probably best off finding an international horse sale broker. I know there are lots of Germany, NL, and the UK -- not as sure about France. I'm...

    Well, I haven't been in your situation but I can give two scenarios that two sisters of mine went through. One on the owner side, the other on the tenant side.

    What others have said -- if he's supportive but disinterested, just leave it be!

    Second the coconut oil!!

    I'm like you -- very oily hair w/ very dry (and sensitive!) skin. I was using super pricey moisturizers ( a day cream and a night cream..the whole she-bang) and found...

    Being younger (i.e. no kids/family to take care of) with a FT job that doesn't pay splendidly well, I can say that if this deal was offered around me I'd definitely jump at it.

    The shoe above -- or an equally bold gold. I'd do gold chunky bracelet and gold earrings: eye-catching but not overwhelming

    And a fun clutch! Definitely do your hair vintage style. But I hate...

    I think way more people suffer from social anxiety in large settings than you think. I still dislike them, but I've learned to function in them. Actually what got me to learn some "coping skills" was...

    Check out this math-solving app for smart phones:

    It not only solves equations, it also provides the steps if you want.

    Whelp. Looks like upcoming generations...
