Gifts with class: Lessons from South Florida masters truly keep on giving.

Miami Herald, December 1, 2011 -A wise proverb says, "Give a man a fish and he eats for a day. Teach him how to fish and he will eat for a lifetime." A wisecrack says, "Teach a man how to fish and he just sits in a boat and drinks beer all day."

That's a bad thing?
With both adages in mind, we present holiday gifts that keep giving — South Florida classes that teach fun stuff.
