This should once again affirm that the most important information in your life won't come from a teacher, the library or the internet, but from a mentor, and on a very personal level.

My long-passed grandfather's birthday is coming up, and for me it is a time to reminisce. The long walks we used to take. The long drives.

The special trips he would make to pick me up so I could spend weekends with him, and the advice he used to give! Much was wasted because was young when he died.

If he were alive today and sharing his gems of wisdom, I'd be a better man. Those gemswere well and good, but the one I remember most, the jewel in the crown of grandfatherly advice, cam when he paused, looked at me in the eye and said....

"Don't marry a woman with big hands. It makes your pecker look smaller."

....brings a tear to your eye doesn't it?
