I was wondering where the phrase Tom Foolery came from?

A I would write it as one word, tomfoolery, and my ordered ranks of dictionaries tell me I’m right. But it often turns up in print in the way you have written it, or as Tom foolery or tom-foolery or Tom-foolery. Such forms show that their writers still link the word with some fool called Tom, even though they may not know who he was.

Tom Skelton
A portrait of Tom Skelton.
It is sometimes claimed that the original Tom Fool was Thomas Skelton. He was a jester, a fool, for the Pennington family at Muncaster Castle in Cumbria. This was probably about 1600 — he is said to be the model for the jester in Shakespeare’s King Lear of 1606. In legend, he was an unpleasant person. One story tells how he liked to sit under a tree by the road; whenever travellers he didn’t like asked the way to the ford over the River Esk, he would instead direct them to their deaths in the marshes. Another tale links him with the murder of a carpenter who was the lover of Sir William Pennington’s daughter.
So much for stories. In truth, Tom Fool is centuries older. He starts appearing in the historical record early in the 1300s in the Latinate form Thomas fatuus. The first part served even then as a generic term for any ordinary person, as it still does in phrases like Tom, Dick or Harry. The second word means stupid or foolish in Latin and has bequeathed us fatuous and infatuate, among other words. By 1356 Thomas fatuus had become Tom Fool.

Around the seventeenth century, the character of Tom Fool shifted somewhat from the epitome of a stupid or half-witted person to that of a fool or buffoon. He became a character who accompanied morris-dancers or formed part of the cast of various British mummers’ plays performed at Christmas, Easter or All Souls’ Day.

A tom-fool was more emphatically foolish than an unadorned fool. Tomfoolery was similarly worse than foolery, the state of acting foolishly, which had been in English since the sixteenth century. Perhaps oddly, it took until about 1800 for tomfoolery to appear. It had been preceded by the verb to tom-fool, to play the fool.
"Whereas most Masonic bodies are dedicated to charity, The Royal Order of Jesters is a fun "degree," with absolutely no serious intent. The motto, "Mirth is King,” is sufficient to give voice to the purpose of the organization. The Royal Order of Jesters feel that there are times, after our hard work and dedication to family and mankind, when everyone should remember to laugh and appreciate the good work one has done."[1] The icon of the Order is the Billiken.[2]

The order is very anti-publicity. For example, a website made by one of its members was removed after intervention of the National Court of the Order. The primary reason behind this was the desire of the Board to minimize the public exposure or public access to Jester information.[3]
The Billiken is a charm doll created by an American art teacher and illustrator, Florence Pretz of Kansas City, Missouri, who is said to have seen the mysterious figure in a dream. Billiken is known as "The God of Things As They Ought to Be." To buy a Billiken was said to give the purchaser luck, but to have one given would be better luck. Today, the Billiken is the official mascot of Saint Louis University and St. Louis University High School, both Jesuit institutions located in St. Louis. The Billiken is also the official mascot of the Royal Order of Jesters,[4] an invitation only Shriner group, affiliated with Freemasonry. The Billiken also became the namesake of Billiken Shokai, the Japanese toy & model manufacturing company (established 1976).

In 1884,  meridian time personnel met

 in Washington to change Earth time.

First words said was that only 1 day

could be used on Earth to not change

 the 1 day bible. So they applied the 1

day  and  ignored  the  other  3 days.

The bible time was wrong then and it

 proved wrong today. This a major lie

  has so much evil feed from it's wrong.

No man on Earth has no belly-button,

  it proves every believer on Earth a liar.

The oddest thing happened the other day. I was in the kitchen making dinner with my husband and I left the room to go change clothes.  After i changed I sat on my bed flipping through a book. A few minutes later my husband came in the room completely pale. He said he had just seen me wearing a red dress walking into our daughter's room and bending down into her closet. I wonder what this means?

Is that what that is?

One time I saw my dad wearing a red shit in a room I was passing by but then when I realized he was really in another
room and I went to go look back the version of him in a red shirt was gone.

I didn't figure that out but it would make sense if that is the case.
Then again, there have also been times where I searched the whole house for one of my family members and I literally could not find them
despite checking every room and then I see them come out of a room I already checked where there was no place to hide.
That has happened a few times to me already.

Back in the day when we used to trip acid he could tell people's very recent past and future activities. Then he started drinking heavily for years. He doesn't drink often at all now.  Maybe the Spirits were dulling his abilities and they are coming back? Also he's heard my voice several times this week when I wasn't home.

does anyone here have any experience with monoatomic gold?

Quote
Throughout the ages White Powder of Gold has been known as The Philosopher's Stone, Star Fire, The Elixir Of Life, Ormus, Manna, and ORME, an acronym for “Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Elements” coined in the 1980's by David Radius Hudson.

Message me.

That may be due to your unsanctioned extra curriculars
