Old Raven,

That is the way in my house. Whenever someone stop for assistance, I make sure they are taken care of. Most of the time they are either lost or broken down.

And if someone comes in at or near meal time, they are offered food and drink, and if we don't have enough out we just make more. Whether they accept or not, that is up to them.

That is the way I was raised and that is the way I will be.

What of a live weasel?

Makes you wonder why that one was written in the first place. I mean a mouse is understandable, but a weasel? You'd think that would be pretty obvious.
And what if a rat or squirrel had been found in it? That's ok? How about spiders?

I always offer food and drink when someone comes to my house. If it's a stranger, you better be sure and offer him or her something if your not afraid to let them in. There's a verse in the Bible that says, "we entertain angels unaware."

Cows, pigs, horses, sheep, goats, dogs, cats, hens, geese ? noisy goods! Little bees that stick to all flowers. These are the ten beasts of all the world?s men.
(The Chieftain who is keeper of the free public hostel must have one hundred of all of these.)

The hostel-keeper must own a cauldron large enough to boil a pig and a cow at the same time. Before taking the meat out of the boiling cauldron the attendant must warn, `Stand back-here goes the fleshfork into the cauldron!?

A layman may drink six pints of ale with his dinner, but a monk may drink only three pints. This is so he will not be intoxicated when prayer-time arrives.

The feller of trees must warn all within shouting distance before he takes the first blow. All beasts, blind persons and people dozing must be removed from the area.
