Every day for the past year, or more, I've been reading how the European Union is in serious danger of falling apart because several countries are close to bankruptcy. And yet, the euro is still worth forty cents more than the dollar. I don't get it. Either money investors are stupid, or the dollar is even worse off than anyone is telling us.

If you've ever wondered how stupid one must be to live in Texas, remember, they elected both George Bush and Rick Perry to the Texas Governor's office....more than once!

Touched by a bishop. Jeez. Who thinks of these things?

Hi Bob! Thanks for caring. We're 4 weeks after surgery and the leg is progressing ahead of schedule! The doc is happy and I got out of an awful brace so I'm happy.

Texas can be a state of mind as well as a plain ol' state. We lived there for years...lots of great people but they're overwhelmed by the ultra-right religious (Christianist) fruitcakes...

I used to think that eventually folks would come to their senses. I don't have any hope any more.

But I do hope all is well with you!

Thanx for the nice comment on Paree! But why don't you like the Champs Elysee? I thought it was great fun. But then I'm just an old guy from Florida! :-)

Hope you have a great week!
