What's Cooking?: The Year of the Dragon


Happy Belated New Year!  Based on the lunar calendar, Chinese New Year came early this year on January 23, 2012.  The Year of the Dragon is considered very lucky especially on my father’s side where at least four generations of family members were born in the Year of the Dragon.  Our personalities seem to reflect this.  We are quite an intense lot; short-tempered, and passionate about things.

Kiss Me, I'm Irish

The Lakes of Killarney, County Kerry, IrelandHappy Leap Day!  If you were born 72 years ago on this day: congratulations, you're finally old enough to vote!  Unfortunately, the romantic possibilities for Leap Day are pretty slim.  A trampoline date?  (Sounds dangerous.)  Kiss a Leap Baby?  (You've only got a 1 in 1461 chance of finding one.)  If you're looking for a kissable holiday, the next one in the calendar has much better odds-- St. Patrick's Day, the one time of the year that everyone can be a little bit Irish for a day.  With the mild winter we've had this year, it may even look as green as Ireland outside by St. Paddy's Day.  If not, pull that green sweater out of your wardrobe and let's go looking for romance!
