    • In large or concentrated quantities *any* fume can be dangerous for our health.  With diesel, I think the specific issue is particulate matter (black soot) from fuel that doesn't fully ignite during combustion.  
      Personally, I do not think diesel can be linked as a cause of asthma though they can certainly trigger an attack. I'm sure all auto manufacturers are doing things that line their pockets and have a negative impact somewhere but simply haven't been caught, yet.
    • ??  I’ve lived here since 1993.   All horse people drive diesels, and I have never met a person with asthma in or outside the horse world.  I’m curious—does that information come from the WHO? 
    • QH,  Very neat pictures of Lyra & family, she definitely does steal the show in those pictures, but it looks like both big brother & dad are very proud of her.   Best Wishes.  PD
    • Personally, I am content with the discussions already established under GenChitChat's Front Porch and TXPeople.  

      I appreciate that you are trying to enliven the Debate Boards, but I absolutely abhor the manner in which you do so as it comes across as condescending. I know these boards are deader than dead, but when one person would happen to notice how huge this is for the rights of women great.
      That’s what happens out there if you’re paying attention.
      Surely somebody here, should they be motivated, could find debate fodder.     The HC membership here is drastically reduced from what it was when I first joined here.  The lively GCC discussions, where in the evening I'd have 2 PAGES of new and replied-to topics to read through and various lively discussions on the ODB are over.  Those days are long gone.  Perhaps you need to accept that the membership has changed and stop trying to antagonize and goad people into responding.  
      Catch more flies with honey than vinegar.
    • Adorable Lyra pics!   I've been dragging 250' of hoses this summer to keep my new trees watered.  I lost a couple trees last year when I was in CA for 6wks of the summer.  I'm being careful so I don't lose any this year.
