Let's Party Like It's 4702!

In case you forgot, today is New Year Eve - by the Chinese calendar. Tomorrow is the first day of 4703, so party your socks off tonight. If you have trouble remembering that number on your checks, you can just remember that we are bringing in The Year of the Cock Rooster (so today is the last day of the Year of the Monkey).

So what does a Rooster Year mean? It makes you wish you were staying Monkey:
(The Year of the Rooster) may require a great deal of effort this year to resist going off on wild goose chases. Refrains from making speculative ventures. Disappointments and conflicts will result. The Rooster likes to flaunt his authority and a lot of trouble can come from his domineering attitude. But since he also symbolizes the good administrator and conscientious overseer of justice in the barnyard, the peace will still be kept. Everything will be precariously balanced in the Rooster's year, as his dramatic personality can set off all kinds of petty disputes.

This year we may have to expend maximum effort for minimum gain. Try not to fuss too much. Details do need looking into, but don't forget to view the whole picture. Be cautious. Do not aim too high. One is liable to get shot down
I think I'll have a couple of extra martinis tonight to bring in this type of year.
