Here are some invaluable bits of advice- free of charge. My gift to you. (And no, the person who *inspired* me to think about these things does not read my blog, so this isn't aimed at you.)
"Don't tell your neighbor how to water their lawn when your own house is on fire."
- from Corrine's (Invisible) Book of Wisdom pg 76
"Unsolicited advice is generally unwelcome advice."
- ibid pg 4
"When I want your opinion, I'll give it to you."
T.C.O.Y.- Take care of YOURSELF.
- Jim Bridger Elementary School's school rule #3
Mind your own beeswax.
- from 2nd grade, 1984
