    Jun 24 2012: HI Fonkou, I hope these help you...

    1) Education is the best and most reliable life insurance you will ever invest in - it will go on paying dividens all your life
    2) If you get the opportunity - travel the world - it will broaden your mind and humble you
    3) Always vote and hold your local politician to account
    4) Live simply - eat real, local, seasonal food - enjoy getting out into nature - don't get carried away with credit and debt
    5) Manners make the man - it is often who you know rather than what you know - good manners will get you noticed.

    Good luck
