A nice quote I want to share (not sure who wrote it) -

Be kinder than necessary, for everyone is fighting some kind of battle. Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning how to dance in the rain. 

Many of us are fighting our own battles with the Market Mistress, real estate and rental problems, etc. One thing we can do on Vic and Laurel's site is to listen to each other's problems and offer sound advice when warranted. Football is back and forth for control of the playing field just as the market is back and forth for many attempting to gain control of the big board. I look at 'dancing in the rain' as learning to cope with the many troubles facing us today.

This is a hodgepodge of separate quotations: "Be kinder than necessary" is attributed to J. M. Barrie 1860-1937 (the author of Peter Pan), "be kind, for every one you meet is fighting a great battle" is attributed to either the greek philosopher Plato (427 BCE - 347 BCE) or (more likely) Philo of Alexandria (20 BCE - 50 CE) depending which web site you believe. Finally "life isn't .. dance in the rain" is from an anonymous source. A good example of Internet junk that gets transmitted like a virus through repetition and random recombination of disparate elements.

    Quotes of the week:

    “People are what they are…” and

    “I tried to help people as they thought their way through this”

    …that’s why I gave a call to a friend of mine, Ben.

    I've always liked the quote that my mother used to say to me when I was young and complaining about something: "Chris, life is a series of problems and how you deal with those problems will determine the quality of your life." This framed life and its problems into the proper perspective.

    It is a nice quote, regardless of where it is from.

    And btw, tonight the Titans will control the playing field, and we might remember to be kind to the Broncos who are fighting their own losing battle to find a better quarterback than the hapless Cutler.
