One of my favorite quotes from Grease is  “the rules are, There ain’t no rules” said by a rough looking Leo, Danny Zuko’s nemesis before the big car race as Sandy watches on before going to get changed into her sexy leather look. (Rule number one. Never think you can pull that look off! ) However you can’t always get by living with no rules or nothing to check back on as your go about your life, we all have morals, tactics and rules.   I don’t know about you but I have certain rules I like to live by.… View Post
