Here’s a little philosophy I picked up from an old sailor. "If it's brown go around, if it's green it's lean, if it's blue go through." Learn to recognize the signs. Get your head out of the sand and pay attention. There’s the occasional storm that blows in from nowhere and we have to batten down the hatches, but more often than not, we can get into port safely if we only to learn to see the impending signs. On the other hand, if you go looking for trouble, you won’t have any problem finding it.
