OK, I am a little late, but had/HAVE no internet connection for a week now and borrowing my hubbies computer for just a while... while he is watching the Super Bowl. sneek, sneek.... But I had this posting already typed out, ready to go on the 3rd of FEB, so I don't want to waste it and post it now... since my online connection will probably be off for another day or so... at least you have something new to read. Bear with me... TIA, this is Africa!!
Chinese New Year 4709, or February 3, 2011 is the first day of the Chinese new year - Year of the Rabbit..
What will this year bring us?
A placid year, very much welcomed and needed after the ferocious year of the Tiger. We should go off to some quiet spot to lick our wounds and get some rest after all the battles of the previous year.
Good taste and refinement will shine on everything and people will acknowledge that persuasion is better than force. A congenial time in which diplomacy, international relations and politics will be given a front seat again. We will act with discretion and make reasonable concessions without too much difficulty.
A time to watch out that we do not become too indulgent. The influence of the Rabbit tends to spoil those who like too much comfort and thus impair their effectiveness and sense of duty.
Law and order will be lax; rules and regulations will not be rigidly enforced. No one seems very inclined to bother with these unpleasant realities. They are busy enjoying themselves, entertaining others or simply taking it easy. The scene is quiet and calm, even deteriorating to the point of somnolence. We will all have a tendency to put off disagreeable tasks as long as possible
Money can be made without too much labor. Our life style will be languid and leisurely as we allow ourselves the luxuries we have always craved for. A temperate year with unhurried pace. For once, it may seem possible for us to be carefree and happy without too many annoyances.
Famous people born in the Year of the Rabbit.
Albert Einstein, Leon Trotsky, Frank Sinatra, Pope Benedict XVI, Angelina Jolie, Brad Pitt, Johnny Depp, David Beckham, Tiger Woods, Whitney Houston.
Wishing you and your family a year of health and prosperity! Gung Hay Fat Choy!
