    In the meantime, in case she ever has to work for a living, she could brush up on her English usage.

    I do so hate pasting out on my horse...
  2. Popped the trailer emergency brake – what now?

    I have the emergency stop mechanism on my bumper pull trailer that has a wire connected to a pin in the brake. The other end of the wire clips to my truck underbody. Well, today when I disconnected...

    I know we have moved past the garlic, or at least TTSP has. But I'm still trying to get my head around it. Two gardeners talking in a coffee shop (I may have the venue wrong) about a garlic order,...

    I sure would like to know what jobs you judgy-pants folks think deaf people SHOULD be able to hold. Obviously there's a limited list. And deaf people really ought to be informed of this list, so they...

    Well it might be better than a bunch of cranky horsewomen, but I wouldn't expect a deaf person to speak for all deaf people any more than one woman could speak for all women, or one lesbian for all...

    My sock wear issues are dependent upon the shoes I'm wearing them with. The shape of the heel bed in my muck boots, for example, tends to provide some room for movement. It's not enough for me to...

    Springer, I don't really think the situation requires you to condone it. The fact that you aren't sure this is an appropriate position is profoundly irrelevant. Her credentials and her success with...

    Silverbridge = definite sarcasm
    Beowulf = possible sarcasm, brilliant response if so. If not, response is eerily parallel to the issue about which it would be sarcastic if it were sarcastic.

    Does...

    On a similar note, I am still waiting for someone to explain the effect of toilet paper use on a company's or restaurant's bottom line (as it were). I think of this whenever I encounter one of those...

    I agree with Minnie. I would put this all in front of the student. If you were able to disclose what you do know, and what you have experienced – in terms of meeting the extended deadlines, producing...

    No, I'm sure my friends don't "KNOW" either. But I was amazed at the reaction of everyone on social media and local news -- that everyone said she was a victim and framed and no evidence, etc. I...

    I agree with every aspect of this except the kill buyer. Cheap bastard. Put the horse down or shoot him yourself. Give him to a wild animal park.

    Have to get the last dollar out of him no...

    It is not about the bottom line in the way that Last Chance Corral would have you believe. They spread lies and hyperbole about the PMU industry and when that dried up they switched to nursemare...

    When James Garner says "I'm sixty" at the end of Murphy's Romance.

    Do you have even one iota of substantiation for this? I don't agree with or believe a bit of it?

    Well Fairfax you've thrown me on my liberal ear. I DID connect the dots, that's why I kept going back to it. But would've found it more likely to apply to… Well just about anybody. Okay except for...

    Using my given name, I was up to page 10 without finding "me". Well, maybe some of those "411 info" type listings have me in there, but I'm referring to the ones that are actually...

    Why is there Braille on the drive-up ATM at the bank?

    I am just a few years too young to have been the target audience for early 60s folk, but I have twin sisters 12-1/2 years older than I am and...

    I'm glad I'm not the only one stymied here. I keep hoping this is tongue-in-cheek, however misguided. I'm beginning to think I'm wrong.

    Fairfax, I'm genuinely curious, because if you are being sarcastic, your sarcasm font wasn't turned on. Taken at face value, you are saying that you don't have any direct experience with LBGT...

    Here's another spin. If I arrived home with my new horse, and my trainer jumped on him and immediately said "NO WAY THIS IS A DEAD-BROKE HORSE!!!" I sure wouldn't have been the same afterwards in...

    I was fighting the good fight up thread but now I am so angry and appalled and depressed I can't even put words together. Ceylon Star, you know how many of us have your back, and I'm crying right...
