Gettin old ... skippin a beat ....

Alas the ol' plant earth ain't what she used to be .... 2008 will be a second longer. A leap second will be added to the worls atomic clocks at 23:59:60 to make up for the earths slowing rotation. This will be the 25th leap second added since the practice began in 1972. So at this rate ... average about 0.69 seconds a year ... the earth will stand still in about 97,000 years wink

Happy New Year!!! May 2009 be Healthy and Peacful.
