Happy Chinese New Year!
People born during the Year of the Ox, so they say, are disciplined and hardworking. This week's demonstration of my failure to blog twice weekly indicates that I am not an Ox!
But you know who is? Obama! A "Metal Ox," apparently. Sounds like exactly what we need around here.
Anyway, happy Chinese New Year! I know people call it lunar New Year these days, but I just remember my old school gym festooned with color and excitement and big signs using the old term, and it's hard to give it up, somehow.
Besides, I do have a Chinese name, you know - Mei Hua - so hey! I'm bona fide! I can call it Chinese New Year if I want! ;-)
