    Given Mexico's history, IMO it's highly unlikely that such a dysfunctional country would take on any other sovereign nation.

    Remember that during the American Civil War the French had taken over...

    I hope that Bromont benefits as much from its WEG as KHP has. If it is a resounding success, perhaps Bromont will run an annual fall 4*. That's what I personally hope will be the WEG takeaway.

    I lust for one of the old Pariani saddles from the period up to 1980 or thereabouts.

    Before the War, there were more millionaires in Mississippi than in any other state. Most of their capital was in land and slaves, though, so abolition without compensation bankrupted them. And...

    That sort of weave is not a traditional chambray. It sounds more like a pique, where the weave is in small squares--a waffle weave. But pique is not a lightweight fabric and traditionally has been...

    Historically chambray was a cheap fabric. The thread used to weave it was often not uniform, tight and smooth. There were many thicker bits, so it almost had a slub texture.

    Creamy Peach Pie

    I use this the whole peach season. I eat it for breakfast, lunch and dinner.


    Partially bake a one crust pie crust by a pie crust recipe--or use frozen. Cool completely.

    Seven ounces is a very heavy fabric, and twill is tightly woven and very dense. Cotton riding breeches used to be made of twill because it stood up to such abuse. Summerweight chambray should be...

    If the South had been let go, I figure it would have made quite a few military incursions in the Caribbean, especially of slave owning Spanish colonies. They would have sought close diplomatic ties...

    Burghley has been as hard as Badminton lately. The weather has such a lot to do with eventing, and Badminton had bad luck this year; plus the new course designer learning on the job has affected the...

    Do you have a video card or is the video built into your motherboard?

    I looked at the whole darned article, and was struck by what was omitted from the scanty stats, which are admittedly only 57% reliable due to reporting flaws.

    I'd like to know how many of these...

    You get something like 3.5 Gigs at fast speeds, then all the rest of the data is throttled back to something like 64 megabytes per second. Calling it unlimited data at those speeds is a pure ripoff....

    I might just point out (and will) that the US tanking in eventing correlates quite well with DOC's control of equestrian sport as President of USEF, applicant during that tenure for Team coach, and...

    Trotting, lots of trotting. Hard surfaces are good. I was always taught that when the horse and rider could trot for five miles (rising trot), they were good for anything.

    I just checked on the FEI database and the 2011 Pan Ams were a CCI 2*with a 1* dressage test. I also checked the 2015 Pan Ams and the dressage test was a 1* test. The dressage results are pitiful,...

    JER, unless I'm wrong, the 2011 Pan Ams were a 3*. I think this is the first year of dumbed down Pan Am eventing. Now I will admit that a 3* is not top of the heap, but the European Championships...
