Hello Family, Very rarely do I use the words "shut up". I was taught as a child that it is rude to tell someone to "shut up" and the proper verbiage is "please be quiet". I do try to use the politically correct term, however there are times that I fall short. This will be one of those times. :) I once heard someone say that their greatest accomplishment was learning to just "shut up". This got me to thinking about the many times that I spoke too soon and/or said too much.
