  Good Omens - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Good Omens: The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch (1990) is a fantasy novel written in collaboration between Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman.
The book is a comedy and a somewhat parody of the 1976 film The Omen, concerning the birth of the son of Satan, the coming of the End Times and the attempts of the angel Aziraphale and the demon Crowley to avert them, having become accustomed to their comfortable postings in the human world.
A subplot features the gathering of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse — War, Famine, Pollution (Pestilence having retired upon the invention of penicillin), and Death — the last of whom is characterised in a manner reminiscent of the personification of Death in Pratchett's Discworld novels and calls himself Azrael before his final exit.

If a bird flew to their right, they would consider this to be a good omen and would continue with their business.
If something good comes his way, he expresses his gratitude to God, and it will be good for him; and if he experiences an adversity, he shows patience, and that will again be good for him.
The comparison here is not between two good things with one being better than the other, because there is nothing good in allowing bad omen to dictate our course of action.

A good guide to determining the depth of the live event market is to assess the gate returns from events held within the four-week period of December 15, 2005 to January 15, 2006.
Better still is the feedback from patrons about these live shows, that by comparison this year, they experienced a higher level of organisation, including shorter band changes and expedient crowd and traffic control than they have become accustomed to in previous years.
This is indeed good news, and augurs well for future growth of these events.
