"Always smell it first." I found this written on a wall. Words to live by.

Anyone else got some good advice to share?

Never decline if someone offers you a breath-mint.

Tell people what you want; then they can plan in advance for you-








even if it's to say "No".

I think Kirk Douglas once told an interviewer that:

he spent his 20s worrying what other people thought of him...

his 40s not worrying what other people thought of him...

and in his 60s he discovered that, actually, no-one ever thought of him..!!

I like that.

Job hunting - Bucks, equipment and time-off.

When making a difficult decision, always ask yourself what a lawyer will say tomorrow.

Never EVER piss off anyone who is going to handle your food.

Marry an ugly girl, she'll always appreciate you more.

Advise given by a physician to a friend of mine when he was discharged from hospital after minor surgery:
"For the rest of your life... try to avoid physicians!"

Always remember that even if you're in a straitjacket, you can still tap dance.
