Re: What Are You Reading?

I am reading Bonhoffer by Eric Metaxas. It is the story of Dietrich Bonhoffer the German cleric who spoke out against the Nazi oppression and was thus executed by them.

Re: Early Belmont race prediction.

I told myself that having American Pharoah win it all makes this less nerve-wracking but that is turning out to be a total lie. I’m with ya! I thought that after I’d finally seen a Triple Crown winner I could relax a little each time the TC was on the line but 2018 is proving me wrong. My predictio...

Re: 2018 Preakness Stakes

I’d say the name Justify would look great on the list as the 13th Triple Crown winner. Even though I liked Smarty Jones the name just didn’t seem to fit. :D That said I’m crossing my fingers he wins the Belmont. His Derby win was impressive but his Preakness less so. I thought he wasn’t going to hol...

I wish I could be that confident. I’m hoping he can do it but I’m worried that a horse that skipped the Preakness is going to come up and catch him near the finish as with Smarty Jones.

Re: College Football

It looks like we could have an all SEC championship game this year.

I’m not sure how I feel about this. Alabama did have a better overall record but Ohio State had a fantastic season as well. Arguments could be made for both sides.

Re: Dog question

Take her to the vet ASAP. If she's thrown up that many times she's probably dehydrated as well.

At this rate, they're going to be renting out Disney World for her first birthday. :roll: Another thing t...

Re: Happiness

I work as a preschool teacher and yesterday one of the little girls told me she loved me. I don't have any children of my own yet but I love each and every minute that I spend with these precious 4 year olds. I love to read to them, teach them their numbers and alphabet, watch them as they fingerpri...

Re: Daily Laugh

You will love this one. There's a red haired teenager in, I believe, Ohio, that is suing his parents because he was born a ginger. For $2,000,000. A friend just showed this to me on a news feed. And when I was a kid I would have loved to have been a redhead. My good friend had curly red hair while ...

Yep. It's true. If you have a work email or account your supervisor can access anything and everything that you do on it. Even a simple Happy Birthday post to a friends Facebook page could potentially get you into trouble. Far better to pick up your personal phone ( if possible) for anything other t...

It gettin' pretty bad when they don't even show the races on a "secondary" station like NBC Sports network.... fortunately I have TVG, but again, this is just another indicator that racing has really taken a back seat in the world of sports...

Re: The VENT Thread

I think many vets would be willing to work out a payment plan with you. Have you discussed this with your vet?
