They donít look good to me, the two is only pint size and not in line with the H and the O, is directly under the right side of the H; does its position indicate that it is the Mother or something? "Miss Xcie, donít you remember that our lesson yesterday dealt with nomenclature of the elements and their components; and we, learned that for the sake of brevity, in the study of chemistry symbols were used to represent the elements and some of their compounds. In this instance H2O represents and is water." "Ohí, says Miss Xcie, "I see", and resumed her seat. The boss, then express his agricultural ability to this extent.
