Happy Chinese New Year
« on: January 25, 2009, 01:08:38 pm »
We are now entered the year of the ox... The ox represents the following:

www.en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ox_(zodiac)

Quote
The Ox is the sign of prosperity through fortitude and hard work. This powerful sign is a born leader, being quite dependable and possessing an innate ability to achieve great things. As one might guess, such people are dependable, calm, and modest. Like their animal namesake, the Ox is unswervingly patient, tireless in their work, and capable of enduring any amount of hardship without complaint.

Ox people need peace and quiet to work through their ideas, and when they have set their mind on something it is hard for them to be convinced otherwise. An Ox person has a very logical mind and is extremely systematic in whatever they do, though they have a tremendous imagination and an unparalleled appreciation for beauty. These people speak little but are extremely intelligent. When necessary, they are articulate and eloquent.

I hope this year is exciting for all.:D

tig; a hint (cos i ran into this problem too) -- use the 'url' ... '/url' BBCodes to surround URLs from the wikipedia that have parentheses in the URL since the last ')' gets cut out of the auto-link the forum makes...

I was joking! No harm, though.

Assuming I was serious, you could have just read right on by and ignored the post. At least you were trying to be helpful.
