Calamities are of two kinds: misfortunes to ourselves, and good fortune to others.
Ambrose Bierce (1842 - 1914)
With folks around here recovering from hurricane Ike, it is interesting to listen to folks who've had their homes damaged. Some are able to see positive. A friend of mine had flooding throughout her home, down the sheetrock, destroying the carpeting and the walls. Her response as she ripped out the sopping carpet, "Well, we planned on getting wood laminate flooring in the future, I guess the future has arrived."

She has a great outlook! An opportunity for better flooring! I would only be upset over my nic-nacs and oil painting I've collected over the years. Can't replace those.
