Hard work and smart living pays off in the long run.

Family is important. So is social interaction.

Adding humor to your life is not only important, it’s key to living longer.

Take joy in children. Spend time with them and remember how innocent they are.

Keep your mind busy — find a hobby (reading, crosswords, word search) that engages your thought process and keeps your mind young.

Shop at thrift stores, garage sales, and second-hand stores. You may be amazed at what you find.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
