donkeyYou know, the ‘Christmas’ manger scene. Birth of Jesus. A donkey is often shown as being present. This could be the SAME donkey that the Virgin Mary rode upon on her way to Bethlehem. What is the name of this famous donkey?

Yesterday’s ‘Think’: “Basis For The Gallon” — there are conflicting theories as to how the Imperial (i.e., the British) gallon got to be what it was — and it was this gallon that came ahead of the U.S. gallon.
