Happy Chinese New Year to you Frugal. I was born on the dragon I remember, but I do not know much else about the symbolism. What does OX signify? How about a kick butt year of economic upswing?

Thanks Jay! I never really got into the zodiac stuff. Not sure what each one stands for either. You can find more info here if interested, but then again, you probably already googled it.

Looking forward to a great year to all!
