Shared Functions

Is there a rule of thumb when to use and when not  to use "Shared"  in a Class. I can see the benefit from this sample. However, should I use shared all the time so that I don't have to cretae a new object each time?

As a rule of thumb and in plain worlds I would say:
- A shared or static member (either field, property or method) doesn't require to use contextual information from an specific class instance.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.
