    I went horseback riding on Fort Louis which is rumored to have many haunted places. I rode through several of them but I didn’t see or hear anything. We heard the sound of people running but we found out it was just soldiers doing their drills. I don’t really believe in ghosts but it was still fun.

    I make a really good fruit salad. Here is the recipe. It is super easy.
    ¼ whole watermelon
    1 cantaloupe
    1lb grapes.
    You chop the watermelon and cantaloupe into bite sized pieces and mix it all together and serve.

    I just bought a pear cactus so I could have something to talk to. His name is Prickly and he is very unresponsive to my questions (lol). I love Prickly a lot because he doesn’t talk back and I don’t have to water him very often.

    The best dressage score ever was Edward Gal with Moorland Totilas who scored 92.300%. I chose dressage because my sister rides dressage on her mustang.

    • Tell me a bit more about what goes into a dressage score, please. I’ve looked at those equestrian competitions before, but I was either always watching the steeplechase or I didn’t understand what I was supposed to be looking at.

      • A dressage test is where the horse and rider have to exicute a series of movements such as a circle or figure-8 at different points in the arena. The test is scored on how the horse and rider perform those movements.

        • And we’re looking for smoothness of rider, crispness of position, control, or some other things?

          • Yes, all those things. Basically dressage is like dancing on a horse. You want to look as fluid as possible

            • Sounds interesting. Somewhere On The Interwebs I Heard that you would be penalized in dressage if you did things that were visible to control the horse with (like obvious reins pulling or some such). Is that true or just Internet Rumor?

              • Yes, that is very true.

                • Hrm. Interesting. Makes it sound like the entirety of the horse’s control has to be achieved through subtle shifts and small amounts of pressure. Must be difficult for horse and rider to have to move so much while not moving.

    Leonardo di ser Piero da Vinci was an Italian Renaissance polymath: painter, sculptor, architect, musician, scientist, mathematician, engineer, inventor, anatomist, geologist, cartographer, botanist, and writer whose genius, perhaps more than that of any other figure, epitomized the Renaissance humanist ideal. Leonardo has often…[Read more]

    • …Did you just copy this straight from Wikipedia? No, don’t answer that, you did just copy it right from Wikipedia. That is a blatant case of plagiarism, you could have easily written a paragraph about him if you’re such a big fan.
