Only as good as your name? You Beto believe it! 

When it comes to evaluating people we don’t know much about, typically the first thing we judge them by is their name. Fair or not, somebody’s name causes us to make certain assumptions about their age, gender, where they come from or even what their religion might be — as there generally aren’t too many Millie’s under the age of 80, women named Bob, or Mormons named Muhammad. The cues in a name can lead us to positive reactions, or make us skeptical and suspicious. This is human nature, and no ...

Changes in Bread Baking I've seen over 50+ years Submitted by msneuropil on March 20, 2019 - 1:33pm.  The Hole Truth! I grew up in Texas but live in the Pacific NW now. I was raised on home canned foods,hanging beef, and fresh slaughtered pigs, fresh baked baking powder biscuits and cornbread daily, but my family didn't bake yeast breads hardly ever unless it was salt rising (go figure).

Get your natural gas in Texas for a dime, prices fall to record low

The equipment failure was on El Paso Natural Gas Pipeline Co LLC's Lordsburg and Florida compressor stations. El Paso, which is a unit of Kinder Morgan Inc, said the reduction will remain in effect until further notice. The Permian is the biggest oil-producing shale basin in the United States and since much of that oil comes out of the ground with gas, it is also the nation's second-biggest shale gas producing region, behind Appalachia in Pennsylvania, West Virginia and Ohio.
