    I can't tell much about the quality of your home based on the pictures, but in some older cities - half the rental houses look like this and they are not considered super nice. The...

    Wow. So, if this country has opportunity for all races, all sexes - women should be paid as much for the same jobs as men, then, right?

    This is regarding the Equal Pay act, but I suspect we...

    Your gynecologist can't get you in for a pelvic U/S in less than a WEEK? That's ridiculous! No way I'd take pain meds for a week to wait for a pelvic U/S - every OB/GYN in the country has that...

    Well, if only it were that easy! Without treatment, the cure for laminitis in my pony is euthanasia.
