HAPPY NEW YEAR

I hope the blessings in each of our lives continue, and the troubles in our lives become less, and that we remain strong enough to overcome those troubles that will persist.
 
Happy new Year to you all. we usually have a lovely bbq at the beach but weve had some pretty wild weather so we will have to cancel and stay indoors. be safe and it will be a terrific year.
 
Happy New Year everyone and I hope 2008 brings you all much happiness.

I have decided to begin this year with the ancients, I am off to the pyramids today to see if I can suck any energy out of them (knowing my luck they will just suck all the energy out of me - it is a long climb to the top :p).

Snoopy, when does the year of the rat begin? Is it mid Feb? I am a dragon (no big shock there lol) and my element is wood (again no big surprises).

Rats sound like lucky people:

[FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]People born in the Year of the Rat are noted for their charm and attraction for the opposite sex. They work hard to achieve their goals, acquire possessions, and are likely to be perfectionists. They are basically thrifty with money. Rat people are easily angered and love to gossip. Their ambitions are big, and they are usually very successful. They are most compatible with people born in the years of the Dragon, Monkey, and Ox.[/FONT]

YouTube - Happy New Year (ABBA)

*the :kitty: delegation enters, each pulling a wagon that contains a "luck food" from the different cultures represented by the members of IF, depositing their burdens right beside a huge table. They commence mingling as the ferret and lunamoth delegations enter the room, joining the humans and the :kitty:s. The only times the non-human delegations leave the room (besides to discretely take care of "personal business") is to refill the wagons whenever they're empty*

Don't you just love :kitty: "cat"erers? :D

I'm not snoopy, more like charlie brown, but according to my lovely wife I believe Chinese New Year is Feb. 7.

I'm an, ummm, ox...(no surprises there!)...in a china shop. :D wheeeeee!

Hee, hee. That is why I think wood suits me - thick as a plank!! :p:D

I was just remembering my childhood stint in the Far East, it is amazing but the only Chinese I can remember is how to say Happy New Year. Amazing what stays with you. I remember very little of it but do clearly remember the water festival, people standing on blocks of flats throwing water over passers by.
 

cirkey sounds like me, i'm a rooster...i strut my thang, sometimes to the annoyance of others....:p

happy new year one and all...
