A Safe, Happy, and Reasonable New Year to All

            What can we do to make 2023 better that 2022? 

            It has become a tradition for the Town and Country to share the resolutions below every year.  They're not a cure-all – they're only words.  You still need to provide the action.  They are simple words that provide powerful guidelines that can be easily adapted to everyday life at home, school, work, or even in the halls of local, state, and federal government.

            The person who penned these simple words of wisdom is unknown to history, but the words have been around for decades.  The good sense provided by them is timeless.  Place them in a prominent place and read them often.  They are a good reminder of reality and a good way to maintain some sense of reason in our ever "woke" world.

            Oh, and also send a copy to your elected officials. 



No one will ever get out of this world alive.  Resolve, therefore, to
maintain a reasonable sense of values.

Take care of yourself.  Good health is everyone's major source of
wealth.  Without it, happiness is almost impossible.

Resolve to be cheerful and helpful.  People will repay you in kind.

Avoid angry, abrasive persons.  They are generally vengeful.

Avoid zealots.  They are generally humorless.

Resolve to listen more and talk less.  No one ever learned anything by talking.

Be chary of giving advice - wise men don't need it, and fools won't heed it.

Resolve to be tender with the young, compassionate with the aged,
sympathetic with the striving and tolerant of the weak and wrong.
Sometime in life you will have been all of these.

Do not equate money with success.  There are many successful
moneymakers who are miserable failures as human beings.  What counts
most about success is how a person achieves it.


            In closing, the staff at the Town and Country newspaper wishes all of our readers a safe, promising, and happy New Year.
