Gracious hosts and fresh flowers

prima Be a gracious host. Anticipate your guest's needs to whatever extent you are able. Share your toys and juice. Keep a home where people feel welcome. It will probably involve tidiness, warmth and the absence of horrific smells.
secondario Don't pick other people's flowers. It's not nice. If you think you need some flowers - then learn how to grow them, but don't take the neighbor's.

terzo If you borrow something (anything) from somebody - be prepared to buy a completely brand new one if something goes wrong. Try to avoid borrowing tools and cars and electronics because you may not have enough money to buy new ones. IF you do have to borrow a car: Return it with a full tank of gas after you've cleaned it up. This is Universal Action Language that means: Thanks for letting me borrow your car.

My photo

I love raindrops on roses and whatnot, but even more than that I totally dig finding dollars in clothes I haven't worn in ages, live music, social networking and search engine optimization, research, freecycle.com, homemade beer, home grown stuff, writing, talking, laughing, green movements, debate, dialog, dumpster diving, time travel, time-out chairs, psychology, meals that last for hours, pranks, astral projection, meaningful lives, the kindness of strangers, trains, trucks and tractors, cowboys, horses, deer, eagles, random occurrences, modern tragedies, small appliances, good socks and sturdy shoes, shiny objects, painting, playing stringed instruments and singing harmony, pulling perfect feather pillows out of the freezer on hot and humid Kansas summer nights, rodeos and county fairs, brokers, organics and authenticity, my kids, their kids and my huge extended family. I am a hugger and I probably laugh AND talk way too much.
