I know most of you here hail from somewhere around the middle 19th century, so your wisdom is almost as abundant as your grumpy attitudes and back pains. But, knowledge must be passed on and most of you are pretty darn smart, so I'd love to hear what lessons, values and great insights you've learned throughout your years. What are mistakes would you never make again? What are some bold experiences that made you more insightful or helped you grow positively? Help a youngster just starting life and, of course, complain about the hardships of the War of 1812, etc, etc.
Haven't lurked the forum in quite a bit, so sorry if there's a similar thread. Couldn't find one though.
