Thanks for reminding me! (It caused me to look it up - it starts on, "February 10th shortly after the New moon in Aquarius".)

"The 2013 year of Snake is Water Snake, Water Snakes are lucky with finances, they always seem to have money flowing their way." "The colour of the 2013 year of Snake is Black. Black color is the Space, Arctic night, darkness on the Abyss, this is a color of deep waters. The Black Snake will bring people unexpected changes, instability, and changeability. That is why it is important in the year of Snake to plan everything beforehand, and evaluate adequately before taking any actions. You need to be more careful and cautious than ever."

It's a good sign. Not as good as last year's, of course (The Mighty Dragon). But looks promising.

If I remember correctly, Sue, your daughter and I were born the same year. Since my birthday is in late December, it is most likely she is older.

My daughter was born in November, the same day as the Queen's first grandchild, grrr, you really do not need to know, when you are in labour, that Princess Anne has just had her baby!

She's about six weeks older is all, as is Peter. Peter's sister, Zara, is two weeks older than my brother!

So then snakes aren't all bad. wink
