    Should the rabbitry become a private forum? (All May Vote)

    I missed the poll because I don't come here very much anymore. When I joined, it seemed like most of the active members were pet and/or rescue, which is what I liked about this forum. There didn't seem to be very many threads about the more controversial breeder topics. As the breeder talk (and...

    Some questions for the vegetarians / vegans on here

    Just now seeing this thread...... As a vegetarian, I do recommend reducing meat consumption. Even if it's one or two days a week, it can make a big difference. I don't like to be preachy about it, though, diet is a very personal thing. Be careful in generalizations, though, there is...

    Family on Facebook

    I'm "friends" with quite a few of my family members on facebook. I also have a few co-workers on there. But I am a big fan of using lists and privacy controls. Co-workers are extremely limited as to what they can see. I also lock out certain lists of people from seeing some updates, pictures...

    EARTHLINGS (warning, graphic)

    maxysmummy wrote: No problem. :) The term Vegan is a whole lifestyle, not just a diet. Vegans strive to avoid all animal products in all aspects of their life- food, clothing, personal care products, etc. Someone is either vegan, or they're not vegan.

    i'm thinking of doing something

    My first thought was....ewwww, I would not hug a stranger!! I watched the video, and it looks very nice, though. Still not sure if I'd hug a stranger, but that's me. Don't know about the "donation" part of it....Personally, I only donate to established organizations, and then only directly to...

    Black Friday / Cyber Monday - what sales are you following?

    My family doesn't really exchange gifts, so I don't do a whole lot of Christmas shopping. I'll send a package to a friend of mine, but I just have a box going for her all the time, and add little things here and there. I did need a lipstick to go with my outfit today, so I stopped by the mall...

    Toner is an astringent that helps close up pores and tighten up skin, at least it feels like it. I use it before bed, right before putting on my night-time moisturizers. It just takes away any oil that develops after I cleansed, closess up my pores a bit, and cleans away any lingering...

    Oh no, that's too bad the FAB Ultra Repair Cream doesn't work for you. I actually don't hardly smell the fragrance in it, which is unusual since I'm so sensitive to smells. I'm glad you were able to get a free sample to try before buying it. I have their cleanser, I got it in a kit, but haven't...

    Let me know how things work for you, if you try them out. I'm always on the lookout for more things things that are non-allergenic, too. :) I also like Method products. I buy them at Target, and they're also available at Whole Foods. A lot of their items are available in "no dye/no perfume"...

    My husband has random hives/rashes and it's usually from cleaning products and such. We've switched to a lot of fragrance-free stuff, or things with more natural fragrances, and it seems to have helped him. I am also very sensitive to perfumes, sitting next to someone wearing even mild perfume...

    Need bonding advice

    We're still working on this, but it's going slowly. We had two bonding sessions by removing the divider in the pen. Benjamin got frisky, and Opal got a little aggressive with him. (She always starts out by just running away, but eventually gets fed up and starts nipping.) This past...
