Subject: New Year of the Earth Dog (2018)
From: keberoxu
Date: 31 Dec 17 - 03:09 PM

2018's oriental New Year, when it catches up with the occidental New Year,
is to be the Year of the Earth Dog.
As opposed to the last year or two,
in which the animals changed but the element was Fire.

Don't know when the Chinese New Year begins exactly.

Wherever you find yourself, best wishes for a happy one.

16th February I believe, or at the New Moon nearest to it.

Ranger1, I feel a song lyric coming on:


GOD LOVES A TERRIER
yes he does,
GOD LOVES A TERRIER
that's because
Brown, sturdy, brave, and true
They give their love to you
God didn't miss a stitch
Be it dog or be it b****
When He made the Norwich merrier
With his cute little d*******
yes!
GOD LOVES A TERRIER

written by Christopher Guest and Eugene Levy
for the film
"Best in Show"

If the Chinese new year really does start February 16, I shall be delighted, as that's my birthday & I had planned to do some celebrating this year, even though it's not a round number remarkable year. Having a mid-February birthday always means a challenge to be merry in the midst of the frozen heights and lake-effect snow.

The date this year is also the first Friday of Lent. I usually go to a local Chinese restaurant with two friends for lunch on Chinese New Year, but one of them grumbled that she won't eat meat on Fridays during Lent. I pointed out that the restaurant has many fish and veggie dishes on the menu. That did not appease her. However, trying to synchronize our schedules is difficult, and Fridays work for all of us. I don't know what we'll end up doing. If people around here are given dispensations for St. Patrick's Day (for the Irish-Americans) and St. Joseph's Day (for the Italian-Americans) why not Chinese New Year?

Let's hope this year will be better than last year which was, frankly, a shit of a year in this household. Two household floods with accompanying cleaning-up and remediation (the second of which is still under way), and a nasty health issue - hopefully now sorted - for our Canaussian son way over there in Toronto, to name but a few.

I have high hopes, anyway.

We have nice new carpet, so that's a start! Not much furniture yet (quite a lot had to be thrown out), but it will happen. My sewing room/s are slowly but surely coming back together.

My ukulele group had a couple of gigs in the huge big one-of-the-largest-festivals-in-the-world country music festival which has just finished for another year, and we had fun.

Our son is doing well and is nearly pain-free for the first time in over two years.

We are feeling very positive - so thank you, keberoxu!

you're welcome, JennieG!

Well, the groundhogs have had their moment under the hot lights in front of the cameras.

Where I live, the sun is shining AND it is below freezing, in fact my car lock was frozen solid . . . oh! the joy.

So what did the groundhog say? Will spring (or autumn, for us) arrive early this year?

I'm ready for autumn......it's been a stinker of a summer so far, the heat has been awful.....

Well, JennieG,
the Pennsylvania groundhog saw his shadow,
so the seasons will change late rather than early by that forecast.
Now,
I have not checked in with the
North American groundhog in the Deep South (that's southeast),
which is named General Beauregard Lee if I recall right.

Well, bugger. I am more than ready for autumn to arrive.

I seem to recall that the Canadian forecasting rodents indicated something similar to the Penn groundhog, and our Canaussian son is enjoying - yes, he really likes their winter - a coldish snowy winter in Toronto. Not the coldest since he has been living there, but not bad.

Ah, the Canadian forecaster beasties.

In Quebec they resort to a marmot, Fred, in Val d'Espoir.
Fred did not see his shadow, spring is supposedly coming soon.
Fred looks mighty unhappy in the photo I saw,
kicking his little hind feet in the air. Le Pauvre!

Then Shubenacadie Sam (hint of Acadia in there?) in Nova Scotia
also did not see his shadow, spring is supposedly coming soon.
Sam, showing a little more gumption and forethought,
waited until after the forecast and then
attempted to escape from his enclosure.
The CBC's Brett Ruskin, who helped rescue the groundhog,
was bitten on the hand for his trouble.

before the Dog comes strolling through the doggie door."
