    So far, all this "rising" of sea levels on the East Coast I've heard is confined to a barely-measurable couple of millimeters--I mean, how do you even MEASURE that? A 5-knot breeze could be...

    My flippant crack about the $1,600 refers to the very long list of labor-and-time intensive services you're promising to provide. 'Round here, to get all those goodies you would INDEED by paying...

    Amen! You and me both. And that is WHY we need to have ALL the data on the table, and not be suppressing legitimate science that challenges that of one group committed to a certain "orthodoxy." ...

    The reason people think there's so much more crime than there really is--media hype. If it bleeds, it leads, and every time they can pan on blood on the sidewalk, the chalk body outline, the car...

    You will not find any educated person, anywhere who DENIES that climate changes, so please stop using a ridiculous pejorative. The evidence for AGW, however, is so far not strong. The historical...

    . . . and lifting up that rock with Cui Bono? painted on it:

    My BF reminded me over coffee this morning that the stock market is gathering strength in a bullish charge right now.

    Hate to tell you, but being a pro is not HALF so much about riding and showing and all that glory in the ring--it's about having a stable full of paying customers for whom you are providing that...

    Know what the most important question to ask ANY "practitioner" REALLY is?

    "What happens if I just do nothing?"

    Human belief has little to do with science OR evidence. People believe what they want to believe based on what their "gut" perceptions tell them. Often vets will tell you that no matter what is...

    Before we go to war, let's deconstruct this a bit, because we're obviously thinking with our "gut," not our brain, which is exactly what ISIS wants us to do.

    WHO are these people? WHERE are they? ...

    Yes. I had a 34 year old with a full-blown bow which set 100% perfectly and the horse was sound once it healed. Years ago a 31 year old who did the same thing.

    Only way one horse eats early at my place is if they're trailering out--in which case they eat ON the trailer. I don't allow boarders to feed otherwise; recipe for chaos!
