~~~~~~~ SPECIAL THOUGHTS:
"Common advice from knowledgeable horse trainers includes the adage, ‘When the horse dies, dismount.' Seems simple enough.
Yet, . . . we don't always follow that advice. Instead we often choose from an array of other alternatives which include: buying a stronger whip; trying a new bit or bridle; switching riders; moving the horse to a new location; riding the horse for longer periods of time; saying things like, ‘This is the way we've always ridden this horse;' appointing a committee to study the horse; arranging to visit other sites where they ride dead horses more efficiently; increasing the standards for riding a dead horse; creating a test for measuring our riding ability; comparing how we're riding now with how we rode 10 or 20 years ago; complaining about the state of horses these days; coming up with new styles of riding; blaming the horse's parents (the problem is often in the breeding); and tightening the cinch."
From: A handout provided by the Minnesota School Public Relations Association from April 1999.

"Manna" is a Hebrew word meaning "what?". The Israelites woke up one morning to find this stuff around their tents and they asked, "What [is this]?" So I can picture a Jewish mother asking her kids: "Would you like manna or what for lunch?" - John L. Hoh, Jr.
