Message  gerardM le Ven 20 Nov - 15:46

KEEP A STIFF UPPER LIP: remain stoic in the face of trouble; control one's emotions. Washington Times: <<British people are often stereotyped as having a stiff upper lip, able to weather tempests without breaking a sweat. If life hands you lemons, make lemonade — that sort of thing.
So I suppose we shouldn’t be too surprised when the news from London in yesterday’s Telegraph reported: "Elderly man smokes pipe as his car sinks in a lake: Man appeared unconcerned as he awaited rescue from the water.">>
"If life hands you lemons, make lemonade" means if bad things happen, try to find a positive side to them.
