Today's Tip
June 26, 1986 - James Hetfield of the rock band Metallica broke his wrist while trying to skateboard down a hill. One show was cancelled and the remainder of dates on the tour James was on vocals only and John Marshall (later with Metal Church) was on guitar.

What's this have to do with Tips, that looks like it belongs on today's History page?

Just a warning!  Be careful what you do with your hands.  That's not just good advice for violinists, it goes for everyone!

If you are skateboarding, wear the wrist braces.  Be careful how you handle sharp knives!  The Fourth of July is coming up.  If you just HAVE to handle fireworks . . . BE CAREFUL! 

Am I saying don't have fun?  Not at all!  Just use common sense!
