A ratty new year

I was born in 1972, making me not just a Rat, but a Water Rat.

Today, it's another Year of the Rat, this time, the Earth Rat.

Hopefully this signals good things coming my way this year.

To those who celebrate
KONG HEE FATT CHOY

- or, as it seems to be spelt these days -

GONG XI FA CHAI

  4. kevin> each of the 12 years also have a complementing element (earth, fire, water wood metal), but I don't know the method that determines which element goes when and why :p a "better" chinese zodiac horoscope will take the element into consideration. Hope that helps!

Dear legitimate commenters: all comments are welcome! My sincere apologies for making you go through the word verification hurdle, tho.

Dear spammers: please don't bother... I'm just gonna delete any spam that squeaks through word verification anyway, so why not save us both the trouble, eh?

Thanks!
