Resolution New You #8 - Meet the neighbors

The expression, it's not what you know, it's who you know, proves true with regards to your neighbors. How many times have you left the house wondering, did I shut my garage door? Did I turn off the curling iron? Did I feed the animals?  Being friends with your neighbors, or being friendly with your neighbors, relieves the worry of these situations for you can call them and prevent yourself a drive back home.  

When we are not neighborly, it can result in greater problems in a community, then city, state and eventually neighboring countries start sending rockets to each other. We can't control what is going on in other countries, much less our own, however we can control how we treat our neighbors now.
So in 2009, plan a neighborhood potluck block party and get to know your neighbors. Make it an international theme so everyone can bring food from their culture. It is a great way to experience the world without having to travel - right in your own front yard.
