1. There's a place for everything, and everything in its place.
2. Take care of your equipment, and your equipment will take care of you.
3. Always dance when you've got the chance.
4. Measure twice, cut once.
5. Don't get mad, get even.
My Mom sent me an email with the following poem, saying This is why you should dance when you've got the chance!
Here's to dancing this weekend!
The Dancers Inherit the Party
by Ian Hamilton Finlay
When I have talked for an hour I feel lousy—
Not so when I have danced for an hour:
The dancers inherit the party
While the talkers wear themselves out and
sit in corners alone, and glower.
