and PERFECT this is! Great Aunt Alice sounds like many a relative of mine. This is indeed what we lack so much of today. Common Sense and Practicality. "When there's shooting in the street, don't go near the window" :)


I heard the poem on NPR and thought to myself, "Self, that's great advice. You should find it and copy it and keep it." And now I don't have to because you did it for me. Thank you. You were nice to me before I could get cranky.


Everything on this list is good advice, more than good. I'm a list maker myself and I'm going to print this and pin it up where I can look, and sometimes laugh, at it.

Good one to pass on to nearest and dearest. He'll know why.

I think I would have sat at your Great Aunt's feet and hoped to absorb some of that wisdom.


simple perfect wisdom.


I love this list -- very true!
