    Asnwers: CVS2BVS = If things are getting worse then BAD (Be Aware of the signs of the times and Do not try to cling to power in the 21st century).

  2. We tend to percieve things based from the look of things or situations. What is ‘bad’ might not be bad as we assume.it might be the exact opposite and if it is ‘bad’,we are required to have a positive attitude so as to aquire or reap ‘good’.We are the ones to begin with since change begins with us

  3. BAD ,, IS IT AN ACRONYM ,,

    BETTER ALLEVIATE DRAG

    BLOW ALL DISCOURAGEMENT

    BECOME A DANCER

  4. With the right approach bad guys can be turned into good guys. There are no bad months, it all depends on your attitude. Learn from your errors. So long Michael.
