Recently a third grade class in Gallup, New Mexico was asked to create a
chart of good advice for themselves and others to follow.  They arrived at
sixteen items they deemed essential for success in life.


 1. You never know when a bit of string will be useful.
 2. Always help people.
 3. Never spit on your shoes.
 4. Pick good friends.
 5. Six feet on the floor. [your 2 feet and the 4 legs of your chair]
 6. Get an education so you can get a job.
 7. Never mess with Greek Gods.
 8. Never take personal checks from a gypsy.
 9. Read.
10. Pick up your own mess.
11. A backup plan never hurts.
12. Never trust a leprechaun.
13. Do not put a plastic bag on your head.
14. Armpit noises can cost you reading marks.
15. Never go up a strange chimney.
16. Pay attention.
