I'll be your new Etiquette Editor Extraordinary (I can never resist an alliteration) here at BellaOnline. I hope to bring new insight into etiquette and it's place in society through informative and (hopefully) entertaining articles. I feel very strongly about etiquette and how it's correct usage can smooth one's way through the traps and pitfalls associated with social interaction. Or, simply put, how proper etiquette can keep us from making total idiots of ourselves in company.
Here's the latest article from the Etiquette site at BellaOnline.com.

This week's quote:
"He is truly well-bred who knows when to value and when to despise those national peculiarities, which are regarded by some with so much observance; a traveller of taste at once perceives that the wise are polite all the world over, but that fools are polite only at home."
- Francis Bacon
