    True dat. I know I’ve gotten myself in more trouble with my big mouth over the years than when staying out of something if I didn’t have something helpful to contribute. Like this one, Marv.

    Wise words and one of the best lessons my mom taught me. Her language wasn’t as colorful, however. She’d tell me, “When you have nothing nice to say, say nothing at all.”

    To the folks who haven’t learned this, I say “Keep talking, you’re bound to say something.”
