    Long as we don't forget," Charity Begins at Home".

    Hi Marie, agreed! The idea of "Make the World a Better Place" starts with you. Everything you do including brushing your teeth, eating well, taking care of your health and well-being, etc is act of making the world better. So the guideline can be applied to the simplest activities in your own life as well as others. Random acts of kindness, smiling, sincere compliments, etc all count in making the world a better place. Bottom line: apply the idea in any area where you have influence, no matter how small or how great. It will make you feel good about yourself and this whole business called life.

    "For me give a man a corn feed him a meal, teach a man to farm (Garden) feed him for a lifetime":)

    For me fishing didn't work out ( terrible fisherman) I was taught to fish when I was nine, still trying to catch enough to feed my family a meal. :(
