There was a farmer who sold a pound of butter to a baker. One day the baker decided to weigh the butter to see if he was getting the right amount, which he wasn’t. Angry about this, he took the farmer to court.
The judge asked the farmer if he was using any measure to weight the butter. The farmer replied, “Honor, I am primitive. I don’t have a proper measure, but I do have a scale.”
The judge asked, “Then how do you weigh the butter?”
The farmer replied:
“Your Honor, long before the baker started buying butter from me, I have been buying a pound loaf of bread from him. Every day when the baker brings the bread, I put it on the scale and give him the same weight in butter. If anyone is to be blamed, it is the baker.”
Moral of the story:
In life, you get what you give. Don’t try and cheat others.

Be Kind to Your Summer Feet
Tips for Protecting Feet from the Heat
Enjoying a warm summer is always welcoming. However, soaking up the rays can still make your feet vulnerable.
Below are a few ways to prevent these future foot predicaments:
Limit walking barefoot as it exposes feet to sunburn, as well as plantar warts, athlete's foot, ringworm, and other infections and also increases risk of injury to your feet.
Wear shoes or flip-flops around the pool, to the beach, in the locker room and even on the carpeting or in the bathroom of your hotel room to prevent injuries and limit the likelihood of contracting any bacterial infections.
Remember to apply sunscreen all over your feet, especially the tops and fronts of ankles, and don't forget to reapply after you've been in the water.
Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Drinking water will not only help with overall health, but will also minimize any foot swelling caused by the heat.
Keep blood flowing with periodic ankle flexes, toe wiggles, and calf stretches.
Some activities at the beach, lake, or river may require different types of footwear to be worn, so be sure to wear the correct shoes.
If you injure your foot or ankle, seek professional medical attention from a podiatric physician. Many often only contact a doctor when something is broken or sprained, but a podiatrist can begin treating your ailment immediately while you're away from home.
In case of minor foot problems, be prepared with the following on-the-go foot gear:
Flip flops—for the pool, spa, hotel room, and airport security check points
Sterile bandages—for covering minor cuts and scrapes
Antibiotic cream—to treat any skin injury
Emollient-enriched cream—to hydrate feet
Blister pads or moleskin—to protect against blisters
Motrin or Advil (anti-inflammatory)—to ease tired, swollen feet
