• I try to follow two maxims
    1. Keep it simple stupid – basically use plain English. I always like to use verbs of one syllable!
    2. Proper preparation is the key. As my days working for the Army taught me [proper prepared preparation prevents ‘pitifully’ poor performance.] Substitute the word for a more Anglo-Saxon one.
    Each regiment took credit for the maxim.

    • Kerry, thank you for the comment – yes, two very good rules!
