A new broom sweeps clean, but an old brush knows the corners.”   —   Irish Proverb

(Even though the L had to be either the A or the I, it took me some time to get this one rolling.  This is one of those old sayings that you generally only hear part one.  The brush part was new to me.  Of course, I’m not Irish, but I’m often mistaken for having Irish heritage.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
