Mitch, I wouldn't have to get up at 3 in the morning to post them, would I?

No, because I get up early and am on edt is why they are there at that time.

Looked up the answer to the horse question. Great question. I would NEVER have guessed that answer. Thanks for all the posts. They are truly enjoyed.

The rider was a woman of convictions whom protected her peers.~

Lady Godiva?

Correct, Stan.

I thought she did the ride to protest taxes

-- Stan (sopal@net-pert.com), April 28, 2002.

Yes, she did the ride through her village to prevent her husband from collecting taxes she thought was unfair, he was an authority figure; the villagers in respect ( and because their wives threatened to brain them with frying pans) went indoors so she could ride the streets without embarrisment. People were senisitive to others needs as early as the 14th. century, something we have lost today.
