Hey Y'all! Sorry it took me so long to get back here, but my computer has expired and I have to share the hubby's with everyone else is the house.

To clear up my 'It's a cookbook!' reference above -- It's a line from the Twilight Zone episode entitled 'To Serve Man,' which was taken from a short story of the same name. I'm sorry that I can't remember the author's name.

The story line is this: Aliens come down to Earth and go around with this book entitled 'To Serve Man,' fixing all of mankind's problems like famine, hunger, war, etc. Everyone thinks this 'visitors' are wonderful. Only there's one fella who doesn't trust them and their little reference manual. At the end of the story, he finds out that the book is not about how to save mankind, but how to fatten them up for the alien buffet. It's one of my favorite Twilight Zone shows.
