    In general, no, animals should not be given as prizes, especially not for situations where someone from the general public might win it.

    When you have a horse go suddenly very lame, abscess would be my first guess. I would just give him timed and NSAIDs. Your farrier is a very good resource for you with a horse like this in terms of a...

    Here is my grab bag of ideas when I've had this problem:

    1. Take off the spurs.
    2. Make sure the spurs are spotlessly clean. Dirty spurs rub.
    3. Put vaseline on the inside branch and the tip of...

    DMCA is terrible this way, and we in software/tech have been saying so since it was passed.

    But, I have to point out that corporate control and ownership is pretty much the opposite of communism....

    The "story" is basically junk as far as I've been able to tell and the NY Times should be embarrassed. The author made several errors, including mixing up speeches where Clinton was paid and wasn't...

    Lots of molasses is an obvious answer, if the horse needs grain at all. Sometimes you can get a chopped grass hay with molasses.

    The reason to use the dishwasher is if you want the high heat that you can't do by hand etc. I would never put anything really muddy in there; hose it off first.

    I don't find that the clothes...

    Well, sure, but as a parent, I quite appreciate not having to sit in the parking lot for 20-30 minutes because practice went later than expected. I also find it beneficial that my kid can stay after...

    Yes, people are buying SUVs with terrible mileage again with gas prices being lower, but I would not recommend following that trend, given that gas prices are almost certainly going back up and...

    Their oil is simply easier and cheaper to pump out of the ground in Saudi Arabia than extracting it from tar sands or fracking. That's not the US government's fault.

    But I also think that...

    I want to echo that it is my informed opinion that Saudi Arabia et al are deliberately doing so to lower the price of oil and shut down extraction operations in North Dakota, Texas, and Canada (etc)...

    There's no question that the Prius is a big success. The people who I know who have them like them very much, and Consumer Reports loves them and has them as a top recommendation. (Around here,...

    I guess that's not really how I think of it. A great deal has to do with assets and the actual cost of the property. If you're starting with home equity you're in a different scenario than if you are...

    People are liking hybrids, but I would say keep your gas alternatives in mind too. The hybrids aren't necessarily getting great mileage. The Prius is definitely engineered from the ground up to have...

    Here are my concerns.

    We don't know if more unarmed or unthreatening civilians are being killed right now because we haven't been counting them. We literally have not been keeping statistics of...

    I relented and got a smartphone for my 9th grader. I think this was about the right timing for us. There was an initial period of excitement/obsession, but it faded and now the phone is just a...

    I would say more like 20-30K for the tractor, though it depends on the size of your place.

    You can hire work like mowing out, but that does cost money as well as time to find the right person. It...
