Let me start out by wishing a very Happy New Years to all my friends who faithfully visit my web site and check out my Facebook page. I wonder how many of you make New Year’s resolutions.  In years past I’ve done that very thing only to break them at some time during the year. So I thought I would share  something a little different than the usual resolutions.

Several years ago Dear Ann printed a piece on New Year’s Day that was terrific. It was called “Golden Rules for Living,” by Miriam Hamilton Keare.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. Life would so much nicer if we all followed these rules.

  1. If you open it, close it.
  2. If you turn it on, turn it off.
  3. If you unlock it, lock it up.
  4. If you break it, admit it.
  5. If you can’t fix it, call in someone who can.
  6. If you borrow it, return it.
  7. If you value it, take care of it.
  8. If you make a mess, clean it up.
  9. If you move it, put it back.
  10. If it belongs to someone else, get permission to use it.
  11. If you don’t know how to operate it, leave it alone.
  12. If it’s none of your business, don’t ask questions.

Have a wonderful and blessed 2013.

Best Wishes,  Sonne
