I'm not a betting man but I do appreciate a good plot twist. Say, you're not implying there's no chance because Coke is a bunch of Zionists are you?

I took from that there is an implication that you possess a sub-standard love muscle. But, I can be wrong, Big Fella! Meanwhile, what "surprise" does Syria have for Israel? Party favors?

I voted for the wimmins and my tail isn't split. It was a matter of who(m) I'd like to see in the future and the dudes weren't doing anything for me.

I don't care about the ad. But give that guy an pure-breed Arabian mare and he'll win.

In keeping with the tradition of offering up lemons during periods of un-activity, I submit the following:

>Christians are in fact more likely to tip badly than diners with no religious affiliation, according to a study on the subject by Michael Lynn of Cornell University. While Christians gave an average of 17.3 percent for good service, a significant minority -- 13 percent -- left less than 15 percent gratuity for good service, which is double the percentage of unaffiliated diners who tip in that range and six times the percentage of Jewish diners who do the same.<

Jews are better tippers than Christians and unaffiliated diners? Who’d a thunk it? LOL

When I had horses I steered away from Arabians because they are high-strung. They look good and show well but for utility I wouldn't risk it.

Besides, I've been through Egypt and Jordan and I've been to Lebanon and you don't see many horses. Donkeys are still everywhere (workhorses) but the most prevalent working animal on the peninsula and northern Africa is the camel. No offense intended but when I picture Arabs in the desert it's aboard a camel.

You'd have to choke pretty bad for me to leave less than 20%. I'm talking about Garo Yepremian in the '73 Superbowl bad.

When you have a .0635% sales tax, you simply triple it and it gets you close. If she has great cleavage, add 1%.

Yes, I saw it and I wouldn't own a paint horse either, even though I had the chance to buy-in at the top of a champion blood line. When you work cows, you need horses that have an instinct for the work and who don't mind getting their hooves dirty (excuse the mixed metaphor). Most of all, you need a horse with calm focus...a cutting horse is a beautiful thing to watch.



The cattleman is just holding on, since the horse knows exactly what it's doing. For that kind of training and experience you'll pay more than I did for my first house.

That's a handy tipping tip, thanks. And if there's junk in the trunk what do you do?
