I had read an article about these super-cool magnetic bumper stickers, CAUTION NEW DRIVER, and thought to myself. What a brilliant idea! Whenever I'm having my newly permitted child practice driving skills, I'll just slap it onto the back of the ol' van. Then all the other kindly drivers will be instantaneously aware and think to themselves, "Oh, look. How sweet, a new driver. I'll give him a nice, wide berth so he has plenty of room as he…

For the rest of you, if you recall, I left off in my story with the hand model who had just moved in behind us.

Stress Free Strategy #6

Practice preventive maintenance.

This will not only de-stress your life, but also save an unbelievable amount of time, money, headaches and heartache.



When it comes to material goods, all that you possess is in your stewardship. It's your responsibility to care for it so that it retains its value and purpose, otherwise why possess it?



So, first and foremost, purchase or keep nothing that you're not willing or able to properly maintain. If you… Continue
