The Cinderella Horse

The Eighty-Dollar Horse: Snowman, the Horse that Inspired a Nation by Elizabeth LettsThe afternoon auction ended. The leftovers, old horses, were packed tightly into a trailer for the final trip of their lives. These horses were the ones no one wanted. The ones destined for the glue factory.

Harry de Leyer, a stable instructor, planned to attend the auction. He wanted to buy a strong, sturdy horse but a flat tire dashed his plans. He arrived late and the only horses left were the rejects sandwiched together in the trailer.

Video Game History

The Winter Olympic Games start on Friday.  Thousands of athletes from around the globe will compete for the gold and the glory.  I certainly won't be one of them, but at least I can still compete when it comes to video games.  Sort of.  I could kick some pixels in the days of Space Invaders, Bubble Bobble, and BurgerTime. And if something went wrong, I could always blame the controllers. "It's the button!  It's sticking!" or "I'm telling you, this joystick is messed up."  Admit it.  You know you did it too.
