Happy Chinese New Year!

upsidefook.jpgToday is Chinese New Year – which is today – Sunday, February 18, 2007! It’s the Year of the Pig (Boar) – I was born the Year of the Pig – so you can guess how old I am! What’s my Chinese New Year’s resolution? The usual: lose weight, exercise more, find that special someone…

Apparently, it’s an especially lucky Year of the Pig and an especially good year for a ‘Golden Pig’ Baby Boom.
Here’s to a great year – especially for those expecting a baby in the New Year!

[Ed: As to why the Chinese character is upside down, this page on Wikipedia should explain things. See, you learn something new every day!]
