Starting next Monday for the next 2 months, Bamboo shipments
from China will be wacky!

It happens every year after the CNY.

Like a 2 month hang-over!!!

One time we found a slew of Saki bottles inside a container.

Hide your cheese...it is.....

THE YEAR OF THE RAT, 2008

February 7, 2008 - January 25, 2009 (Earth)

According to the Chinese Zodiac, the Year of 2008 is a Year of the Rat (Earth), which begins on February 7, 2008 and ends on January 25, 2009. First in the cycle of 12 Animal signs, Rat Year begins the sequence and recurs every twelfth year. It is a time of renewal in so many ways. From New Year to Valentine's Day, to the arrival of spring, may all the blessings and delights of the New Year be yours.

A Rat Year is a time of hard work, activity, and renewal. This is a good year to begin a new job, get married, launch a product or make a fresh start. Ventures begun now may not yield fast returns, but opportunities will come for people who are well prepared and resourceful. The best way for you to succeed is to be patient, let things develop slowly, and make the most of every opening you can find. People born in an Earth Rat are said to be logical realists, shrewd, charming, ambitious, and inventive. Of course, the entire horoscope must be considered when making any personality assessment.

In Chinese, the Rat is respected and considered a courageous, enterprising person. People born in the Year of Rat are clever and bright, sociable and family-minded. They have broad interests and strong ability in adapting to the environment and able to react adequately to any changes.

They are gifted in many ways and have an easy going manner. They are active and pleasant, tactful and fantastic, and are able to grasp opportunities. They seem to have interests in everything and hope to participate in doing it and usually do it very well

Bang a Gong




Get it on!

According to my 2008 L&L Hawaiian BBQ calendar "rats are sensitive and always care for their lover". Sounds like it's gonna be a good year.

Gung Hay Fat Choy, all.

The year of the Ox, and that's no yoke. (or, the way it feels out the gate, the yoke's on me...)

(And now, back to our Regularly Scheduled Program -- )

I've heard that Twin Dragons http://www.picotwindragon.com/ in West Los Angeles has some good tropical drinks. I think me and the girlfriend will be checking it out on Saturday night.
