1. You’ve got to Speculate to Accumulate in this life. So declared our
belated and much admired friend P.G. Wodehouse and I think that
I’m inclined to agree!


2. Cross Hatch, Cross Pollinate and never turn down a ‘Cut and
Shut.’ Be prepared to be flexible and you will be rewarded!


3. Always be Convivial, Cordial and Condusive and be there to reap
the benefits!


4. Asymetrical always looks good! Just don’t develop a bump!


5. Go to the Edge of your Ability and then jump into the Abyss


6. Make sure you have an Entrance and Exit Strategy – first
impressions count and you never know when you might need a quick
getaway!


7. Be circumspect! ‘A dame that knows the ropes isn’t likely to be tied
up!’ So says our sexy heroine Mae West so I’ve learnt the donkey
hitch myself!
