Pennsylvania has three: the timber rattlesnake, the endangered eastern massauga rattlesnake and the copperhead. Remember, Robert James, check the eyes. If they are elliptical it is poisonous, round it is not.

Q — How long does it take to spend a billion dollars?
A — Not long, Robert James, if you have an open checkbook and are buying hardware for the Pentagon. However, for most of us it would take a big longer. Look at it this way: If you spent $1,000 a day since 1 A.D. you still would not have spent a billion.

Viscount Horatio Nelson, Great Britain’s greatest admiral and naval hero, defeated the combined fleets of Spain and France at the Battle of Trafalgar. Lord Nelson was fatally wounded at the height of the battle but knew he had won. His last words were, “Thank God I have done my duty.” His men then pickled his body in a barrel of brandy and sent it back to England.
