Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.

Oprah Winfrey

You have done what you could — some blunders and absurdities have crept in. Forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day. You shall begin it serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.

One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this — To rise above the little things.
John Burroughs

General predictions for the Year of the Dragon

General predictions for the Year of the Dragon

The year of the dragon is traditionally associated with new beginnings and good fortune.

Those with entrepreneurial spirit are particularly favored to see much success in the coming year.

Generally, it's predicted that any new venture may benefit from the outstanding luck often associated with the dragon. Therefore, 2012 will be a very good year to get married, have children, or start a new business.

As the world suffers through one of the worst economic calamities in recent memory, bold new leadership will help ease the circumstances of those suffering most from recent financial setbacks.

Since 2012 is the year of the Water Dragon, the liquid element is predicted to calm the dragon's usually tempestuous nature, and will give a thoughtful perspective to the plight of the less fortunate.

Dragons who can pursue their own passionate ambitions while meeting the needs of others are best suited to navigating the year ahead. Those compatible with the Dragon — the Rat and the Snake in particular — will also find 2012's circumstances inspiring them to greater personal happiness and professional success.

The Year of the Dragon Chinese Horoscope Predictions for 4710 - 2012

The Year of the Dragon Chinese Horoscope Predictions for 4710 - 2012

Chinese New Year 4710, or 2012 in the Western calendar, is the Year of the Water Dragon.

The Dragon represents the fourth year in the 12 year cycle of the Chinese zodiac.

Like the houses of the zodiac in Western astrology, the animals of Chinese astrology are thought by many to dictate personality traits or, in the wider scope of things, even impact world events in any year they rule.

Dragons, and those born under compatible signs, will likely benefit from luck or good fortune during a Dragon year — i.e., in 1916, 1928, 1940, 1952, 1964, 1976, 1988, 2000, and 2012.

Characteristics of The Dragon

The three words that best describe the dragon?
Charismatic, tempestuous, and lucky.

In fact, for centuries in Chinese culture the dragon has been considered one of the luckiest signs of the zodiac. Indeed, dragons often may spend their lives going from from success to success with a firm belief that they are masters of all they survey.

Conformity is for others. Dragons go their own way! So if you ask a dragon, luck has little to do with it.

Not shy by any means, dragons are often faulted for running off at the mouth with a swaggering overconfidence. Their generous natures can also result in betting unwisely on a 'sure' thing. This may sometimes result in uncharacteristic personal misfortune. With dragons, however, bad luck never seems to last for long. Undaunted, the confident dragon will simply continue on its way with unbounded determination.

In business, dragons are honest and straightforward. Too straightforward, perhaps, as dragons are not known to suffer fools gladly. At the very least, they will always let you know where you stand, and can be relied upon to be always forthright in financial dealings.

Dragons are equally dynamic in love, and their passionate attentions will sweep any object of their affection quickly off their feet. Yet, once settled in a domestic relationship, dragons are usually steadfast and true, and grateful to have a quiet place to cool their fiery natures.

Dragons may also reveal a surprisingly tender heart to confidantes, and as trusted friends no more generous companions can be found than loyal dragons.

Cross them, however, and woe to those who have experienced a tongue-lashing from these hot-headed creatures!

Famous people born in the Year of the Dragon

Joan of Arc, Susan B. Anthony, Florence Nightingale, Sigmund Freud, Mae West, John Lennon, Bruce Lee, Keanu Reeves, Orlando Bloom, Colin Farrell, and Sandra Bullock.

Some Christmas Humor

Some Christmas Humor.  Here are some Funny Christmas Quotes for you to share with your friends and have a chuckle.  Enjoy!!

Peter Dickinson
The threat of Christmas hung in the air, visible already in the fretful look of passersby as they readied themselves for the meaningless but necessary rites of false jovialities and ill-considered gifts.

Max Lucado, God Came Near
Were it not for the shepherds, there would have been no reception. And were it not for a group of stargazers, there would have been no gifts.

Dave Barry
Once again we find ourselves enmeshed in the Holiday Season, that very special time of year when we join with our loved ones in sharing centuries-old traditions such as trying to find a parking space at the mall. We traditionally do this in my family by driving around the parking lot until we see a shopper emerge from the mall, then we follow her, in very much the same spirit as the Three Wise Men, who 2,000 years ago followed a star, week after week, until it led them to a parking space.

Ogden Nash
People can't concentrate properly on blowing other people to pieces if their minds are poisoned by thoughts suitable to the twenty-fifth of December.

Katharine Whitehorn, Roundabout
From a commercial point of view, if Christmas did not exist it would be necessary to invent it.

Frank McKinney Hubbard
Next to a circus there ain't nothing that packs up and tears out faster than the Christmas spirit.

Bill Watterson, Calvin & Hobbes
Oh look, yet another Christmas TV special! How touching to have the meaning of Christmas brought to us by cola, fast food, and beer... Who'd have ever guessed that product consumption, popular entertainment, and spirituality would mix so harmoniously?

Dave Barry, Christmas Shopping
In the old days, it was not called the Holiday Season; the Christians called it 'Christmas' and went to church; the Jews called it 'Hanukka' and went to synagogue; the atheists went to parties and drank. People passing each other on the street would say 'Merry Christmas!' or 'Happy Hanukka!' or (to the atheists) 'Look out for the wall!'

W. J. Cameron
There has been only one Christmas -- the rest are anniversaries.

Charles Dickens, A Christmas Carol
Out upon merry Christmas! What's Christmas time to you but a time for paying bills without money; a time for finding yourself a year older, but not an hour richer...? If I could work my will," said Scrooge indignantly, "every idiot who goes about with 'Merry Christmas' upon his lips should be boiled with his won pudding, and buried with a stake of holly through his heart. He should!"


Happy Holidays Greetings!!

Jingle Bells Music and Lyrics and Sheet Music

Jingle Bells Music and Lyrics and Sheet Music

Another one of my kids' favorite songs... They love to sign this song with jingle bells, it makes me so happy to hear them and see them know the whole song!! Here are the music and lyrics. Hope you enjoy them as much as I do... Merry Christmas!

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring,
Making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight
Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh

A day or two ago,
I thought I'd take a ride,
And soon Miss Fanny Bright
Was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank;
Misfortune seemed his lot;
He got into a drifted bank,
And we, we got upsot.
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

A day or two ago,
The story I must tell
I went out on the snow
And on my back I fell;
A gent was riding by
In a one-horse open sleigh,
He laughed as there
I sprawling lie,
But quickly drove away.
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Now the ground is white
Go it while you're young,
Take the girls tonight
And sing this sleighing song;
Just get a bob-tailed bay
Two-forty as his speed
Hitch him to an open sleigh
And crack! you'll take the lead.
Jingle Bells, Jingle Bells,
Jingle all the way!
What fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Movie Trailer

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer Song with Lyrics

You know Dasher, and Dancer, and

Prancer, and Vixen,

Comet, and Cupid, and

Donner and Blitzen

But do you recall

The most famous reindeer of all

Rudolph, the red-nosed reindeer

had a very shiny nose

and if you ever saw it

you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer

used to laugh and call him names

They never let poor Rudolph

play in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas eve

Santa came to say:

"Rudolph with your nose so bright,

won't you guide my sleigh tonight?"

Then all the reindeer loved him

as they shouted out with glee,

Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer,

you'll go down in history
