An Irish Recipe
Take a heapin' bit of laughter
Some teardrops and some signs
Add to this some sunshine
And the smiles of merry eyes
Then sprinkle blessings over it
Dilute it well with rain
Stir in a mess of happiness
And season well with pain
Pour all into a golden cup
That's buttered well with strife
Heat it up with a trouble or two
And THAT, me friend, is LIFE!

BOOM! Turn pan handle away from edge of range so it cannot be bumped.
EEK! When you plug in or unplug an appliance, be sure your hands are dry. Always take hold of the plug and pull straight out.
OOOH When using the vegetable parer or knife always cut away from yourself. Place foods to be cut on a cutting board. Cut down, never toward your hand.
WOW! Avoid stinging steam. Tip lid away from you when you raise the cover to check contents of a hot pan.
SOS! Always ask for help or advice if you really need it. Before using special equipment such as blenders, electric skillets, and electric can openers, ask for permission and for help if you have never used them.
