6389This Lunar New Year celebrates the Rooster. A year of the Rooster always comes after a Year of the Monkey  and before Year of the Dog. If you were born in any of the following years, you are included in the Year of the Rooster – 1933, 1945, 1957, 1969, 1981, 1993 and 2005. I searched my archives and came up short on my rooster photos so I decided to stretch the theme a bit. The rooster is part of the group called Galliformes. ‘The Galliformes are an order of heavy-bodied ground-feeding birds that includes turkey, grouse, chicken, New World quail and Old World quail, ptarmigan, partridge, pheasant, junglefowl and the Cracidae. The name derives from “gallus”, Latin for “cock” or “rooster”. Enjoy this Lunar New Year and these amazing birds who are part of this group. Cock-a-doodle-doo!rooster

Zeppy-flowerIt is the Lunar New Year. I was born in the Year of the Monkey. ‘Monkey zodiacs are curious, creative, intelligent and even a little bit mischievous.’  That sounds good to me.  If you want more info about your Lunar Zodiac sign check it out here. Happy New Year to one and all (and if you have already broken your New Year’s resolutions from a month ago – you can start all over again tomorrow).monkeyyear
