I've never eaten horse meat. I wonder if it tastes much the same as beef? I've had deer and elk meat. No problem with it. It seems like the cost of the horse meat would be quite low, insomuch as there is no cost in feeding and watering. I agree, lets make horse meat available in our markets.

Your outcome B, C, and, D sound possible. Sad that these things happen. Too bad that the world is not perfect.

frederick franz 9 months, 3 weeks ago on 296 It's amazing how dumb I can be at times.

Tom, I'm not convinced..! You are not dumb..! You have helped me out of so many pitfalls that I bow in your presence..! :-) Well, almost bow. You led me to the Gutenberg website and the Archive website. For years, I have had no knowledge of these great web resources. I'm just beginning to download 42,000+ books which are free. Anyone else want to check out Gutenberg? http://www.gutenberg.org/

frederick franz 9 months, 3 weeks ago on 284 What is actually going on in Turkey's Gezi park dispute?

Tom, you state the situation very clearly. If we could elect a president who is brave enough to cease Israel's, influence on our government, and stop our military and financial support of Israel, we could go a long ways toward solving the refugee problem in Palestine. We should urge the Israeli's to begin reparations and grant title to the Palestinian lands. I'm optimistic that we could provide an example of humanitarian rights to the people of the world..!

Had a busy day. Just getting back here on Tuesday evening. Thanks for the info on the e readers. I've already downloaded a couple Gutenberg books and read a few chapters. I like to work in HTML format. I'll look at downloading ePUB format. However, from what I see, the application files are quite large... 38 megabytes. The OCR reader has yet to be perfected. I used it in the Textbridge application. What a mess of errors...! I'll be looking for your book on Custer!

Tom, it looks like you've solved my problem again..! Yes, I am using an older version ...WindowsXP. My computer here is a Sony VAIO which I bought in April of 2004. Micros$ft wants to keep on pushing new stuff down our throats, However, I find that my old stuff is doing well for most of my purposes. I'll try out Gutenberg so I can enjoy some of the classics..! Thanks again.

Thanks Tom, for the excellent report on the e-readers. I was considering buying one since I am having so much trouble adding an e-reader to my desk top computer. I may still be able to download the software needed to run the application you suggested in your recent email. However, Microsoft has made it difficult. I have yet to load Service Pack II since I feel it is a bunch of crap, and I have been getting along without it for years. I also have not installed Framework.NET since the file is so large that I get errors during download, due to my slow server connection.

What I could probably get by with is an application which will make it easy to convert e-reader text to regular ASCII text. Or perhaps I can gain access to a computer, on a wide band connection, on which I can download to a CD disk. Then I can transfer the needed files to my desktop. Meanwhile, there is plenty of HTML on the web, which I read!

frederick franz 10 months ago on 268 Who's at fault for this coffee spill?

The passenger who reclined the seat was doing only what the seat was designed for. The woman spilled the coffee on herself. She should have been more careful. She will probably win her lawsuit since there is the precedent of the case awarded against Mcdonalds.

Here in Grants Pass, we made a law against roaches but it did no good. :-) So, Tom, what is your verifiable truth?
