Tip of the Month
Write us with your comments and suggestions.
I saw this article printed in my Tennessee Cooperator - the monthly newsletter of my local Co-op, where I buy the good chow that keeps my animals hale and hearty. It was written by Bette Nunn, and I thought you all might find it as amusing as did I. Basically what follows are some tips on how to handle many of life's situations.
The Eternal Truths
