my web sites are way behind.

Some Texas Wisdom....

You do not need a parachute to skydive. You only need a parachute to skydive twice.
Daddy always said "Never ask someone where they're from, If they're from Texas they'll let you know, If they're not you might embarrass 'em
There are three kinds of men: Those that learn by reading.
Those that learn by observation.
And the rest of us, that have to pee on the electric fence for ourselves."
"If you’re ridin' ahead of the herd, take a look back ever now and then and to make sure it’s still there."

New Element discovered!
The new element, Pelosium (PL), has one neutron, 25 assistant neutrons, 88 deputy neutrons, and 198 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an atomic mass of 312.
These 312 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons.
Pelosium is inert, and has no charge and no magnetism. Nevertheless, it can be detected because it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A tiny amount of Pelosium can cause a reaction that would normally take less than a second, to take from 4 days to 4 years to complete.
Pelosium has a normal half-life of 2 years. It does not decay, but instead undergoes a biennial reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places.
Pelosium mass will increase over time, since each reorganization will promote many morons to become isodopes....
This characteristic of moron promotion leads some scientists to believe that Pelosium is formed whenever morons reach a critical concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as critical morass.
When catalyzed with money, Pelosium becomes Obomanium-18, an element that radiates just as much energy as Pelosium since it has half as many peons but twice as many morons.
Good News....
