    What just HAPPENED?!

    Our last Ford F250 did that occasionally. It would say it was in park, but wasn't actually fully in gear. It would take putting it in and out of gear a few times to get it to stay in park. Very annoying. It was a 99', and well taken care of. Probably should get that checked out either way!

    I keep getting told that I'm a bad parent.

    Some of these posts are just hilarious to me...I believe in freedom of children - to a point. I like Oes's parent's method. That's pretty awesome. When I was in kindergarten, I actually was allowed to run down the street to play with my friends unsupervised. The difference was, we were way in...

    Diary of a FAT cow!

    I'm curious - compared to pounds, what exactly is a stone? I have never heard of weighing in stones before!! And good luck with your weight loss! I'm right there with you - I was to the point that my favorite pair of shorts weren't fitting...I couldn't even keep the zipper up! I've gained...

    (ex)-boyfriend problems, advice needed

    Drama, drama, drama! lol.... Maybe you should just take your mind completely off guys for a while (other than being friends of course). Completely ignore anyone who makes a motion towards you. This is a good first step towards SHOWING you feel more confident about yourself, and less needy...

    Turkey mites or chiggers? Help I am itching so bad

    I think I'd be going to the ER instead of waiting for my doctor...If it gets bad enough to swell your air way shut, you're not going to have a good day to say the least. I had that problem with poison ivy...Got it bad enough - multiple times actually - that I had to get in that day for treatment...

    You know you have lost it when ....

    These are great!! I'm sure I have many of mess ups that I have blocked out of my memory, but one that I do a lot, especially when I'm sick (though I don't do it nearly as much now that we have dairy goats, and store the milk in glass jars) - We keep the cereal boxes on top of the fridge. Many...

    (ex)-boyfriend problems, advice needed

    LOL I can't wait any longer...Here is my advice (coming from an almost 23 yo women who has been through high school and all of its fun-ness.) Go ahead and date him...10 bucks says you are going to ignore everyone's good advice, and go ahead with what you want to do anyway. It's not like we are...

    Male or female?

    I'd keep an eye on the brown ones...I say boys for those two. Going by the shiny green feathers in the tail that seem to curve more than the rest. It's hard to tell if it is the angle or not though. The one that is head on also seems to have a "boyish figure". Barred rock is definitely a girl.

    <\3....

    I hate to be the one to say it...and I am saying this in the nicest possible way - I know you are young, and in your eyes, life is just THE WORST for you. Trust me, been there, done that, it gets better. The only way you can be happy, is to suck it up and fix the problem yourself. Getting down...

    I need a little relationship advise

    Quote: Great advice here, but this one from sheaviance stuck out to me the most... There definitely is no set time for getting over it...Just depends on you! I was with my ex for almost 4 years. I was over him within a couple months, but I went out with an open mind and didn't expect anything...

    the poison in my life is gone, so why do i feel so guilty? long post *update now it goes to trial*

    My personal opinion - give real mother/toxic family a kick to the curb. If you apologize, she wins. You have absolutely nothing to be apologizing for!! The more you let her get pushy with you, the more she will do it. There is no need to people like that in your life, whether they are family or...

    Oh he drives me nuts!

    Quote: I was thinking the same exact thing! I'm SO glad I don't have younger siblings (I'm the youngest - I have 2 older siblings). If it were my younger sibling (or any trouble making kid harassing my animal) I would give it right back to them. I'm all for spraying him with the hose - the...

    Chickens out all night

    You are very lucky!! So glad all your birds were accounted for. When it is warmer (over 30*) We just leave our coops open. Of course, I also have chainlink kennel panels enclosing each yard so I don't really have to worry about critters getting in. It probably helps that your birds were smart...

    what do you do when your chickens stop laying eggs?

    I usually either sell or process them when they are around 2 years old (when there is a noticeable drop in production) If I only had a small handful, I would keep them, but when you are dealing with 30+ birds, it's just not reasonable to keep them until the die. I do have a few "life time"...
