Kung Hei Fat Choy

It's the start of the new lunar year in the Chinese calendar, so Happy New Year, everyone!

2009 is the year of the Ox, which just happens to be my animal. Barack Obama was also born in an ox year, as was George Clooney, Meryl Streep, Robert Redford and Bruce Springsteen. We are thought to be dependable, calm, modest, artistic, logical and stable, and if that all sounds too good to be true, can supposedly be stubborn, demanding and narrow-minded.

I didn't know before today that your animal zodiac sign is determined by what time of year you were born - if you were born between January 1st and early to mid February, you would have the sign of the year previous. If you want to look up what sign you fall under, you can look it up here:

According to Wikipedia, the Ox is "a sign of properity through fortitude and hard work." Apparently, it's a good time for the economy to have an ox year, as we could all benefit from a bull market in these challenging times. We just have to be willing to put in the hard work necessary to get there. I say, let's do it!! Who's with me??
