?Good manners and proper etiquette are at the very core of how we communicate with one another,? says Denise Dinyon, Lenox gift-giving and etiquette expert. ?We need to develop and reinforce those essential courtesies that make our relationships strong, valuable and long-lasting.? She offers the following etiquette tips, which are easy to incorporate into everyday life:

1. Turn the cell phone off -- completely -- during a luncheon meeting, social function, or on public transportation.

2. Hold the door -- whether male or female, hold open a door you have just passed through for the person behind you.

3. Bring a gift for the hostess -- preferably one that doesn?t require her to drop everything she is doing.

4. Keep to the right -- on the sidewalk, in stairwells.

5. Say please and thank you -- to waiters, flight attendants, store clerks, cab drivers -- the little things go a long way.

6. Circulate at a party or social gathering -- whether hostess or guest, the people, not the food or drink, should be your main focus.

7. Keep food or drink, briefcases or files in your left hand -- keep your right hand free for handshakes.

8. Stamp and address thank you notes in advance -- when you know they will be needed, then fill them out and drop them in the mail after attending an event or receiving a gift or favor and you?ll be done.

9. Make eye contact and offer a warm smile -- in every situation, this sets people at ease.

10. Be perceptive -- survey a situation and always use your best judgment.

?Now, more than ever, people need to live graciously,? says Dinyon. ?Having good manners is always in style.?

Boy meets girl......



Dear Sugar
Time and ability plus double capacity has forced my pen to dance automatically on this benedicted sheet of paper. Why this miraculous thing happened is because honey I love you spontaneously and as I stand horizontal to the wall and perpendicular to the ground I only think of you, since you are a fantastic and fabulous girl Darling please Stop haranguing with the feelings in my heart because I love you more than a snake loves rat. To me each day starts by thinking of you and ends by dreaming of you. Each time I see you my metabolism suddenly stops and my peristalsis goes in reverse gear. My medular-oblangata also stops functioning.
Crazy crazy crazy you may say but this is true. If only you knew what is going on in my encephalon you would understand. That's why I need to see you face to face with you, soon. I think I have to pen-off here because I still haven't finished studying electrolysis and polymerization. Catch you later. Sleep tight and don't let those bed bugs bite you coz you are too sweet a thing for them.
Yourz Ever,

Dear Honie
My Love, My Sugar, I was exasperated with pride to have received one from you, the lungs in my body flapped with joy when I have been reading your letter. Anyway by now you have reached the realisations to why I am jotting this small letter to you, yes it is to see if you are keeping with the sands of time
How is everything on that other side of yours? Well here everything is just half lemon half sugar to make it Schweppes. How is your schooling? How are you pulling the wagons of life? I am just pulling the schooling thing like a donkey pulling a cart.

My honie, I am missing you very much right now, my heart is perambulating with every word that I write, if it was not for these oceans that decided to flow between us then I would get on the next bus to come and see you, but until then I know that I will not hesitate to put this blue blood on this paper and write to you. I remember that day lovie, that one sweet day as Maria Carey sanged it, you know that it is my favourite song honie. The one day that we were boarding the transport and you escorted me to my home, walking with you just brought sweet dreams to me for the rest of my life honie.

If words of love could ride a bicycle I would be competing against mariah carey Anyways, I will not stop you from reading the books that give you life and education so I will stop here for today.
Please always  be writing to me because I am missing you like sugar misses tea.

Keep well my mop of my heart, Yours in flesh and in blood.

 What do you think?


Why I fired my Secretary.

Last week was my birthday and I didn't feel very well waking up on that morning.

I went downstairs for breakfast hoping my wife would be pleasant and say,

 'Happy Birthday!' and possibly have a small present for me.

As it turned out, she barely said good morning, let alone

'Happy Birthday'

I thought...

Well, that's marriage for you, but the kids...

 They will remember.

My kids came bounding down stairs to breakfast and didn't say a word.

So when I left for the office,

I felt pretty low and somewhat despondent.

As I walked into my office, my secretary Jane said,

'Good Morning Boss and by the way Happy Birthday! '

It felt a little better that at least someone had remembered.

I worked until one o'clock, when Jane knocked on my door and said,

'You know,

It's such a beautiful day outside, and it is your Birthday,

What do you say we go out to lunch, just you and me?'

I said,

'Thanks, Jane, that's the greatest thing I've heard all day.

Let's go!'

 We went to lunch.

But we didn't go where we normally would go.

 She chose instead to go to a quiet bistro with a private table.....

We had two martinis each and I enjoyed the meal tremendously.

On the way back to the office,

Jane said,

'You know, It's such a beautiful day...

We don't need to go straight back to the office, do we?'

I responded, 'I guess not.

What do you have in mind?'

 She said, 'Let's drop by my apartment,


After arriving at her apartment,

Jane turned to me and said,


If you don't mind,

I'm going to step into the bedroom for just a moment.

I'll be right back.'


I nervously replied.

She went into the bedroom and, after a couple of minutes,

She came out carrying a huge birthday cake....

Followed by

My wife, my kids, and dozens of my friends and co-workers, all singing 'Happy Birthday.'

And I just sat there...

On the couch...
