     On decision making.....Mama always said, "When in doubt, don't".  It applies to just about anything!
     Buying used cars,
     Hot air balloon ride on a hot day,
     Relationships, should I, or shouldn't I...Just to name a few!  Mama was wise!  I should have listened to her more!

I believe what Magicman is referring to when he said "Blacksmiths have it made" is the old saying

"There's only two ways a blacksmith can go to hell, beat cold iron or not charging enough"  ;D  And yes Magic we do. 8)

I was reminded recently of a variation on an old saying by a friend of mine in high school:  "When the going gets tough ... it's tough to get going."

Lot of truth in that ...
