Thanks!

 

Monkey is gone and left us with some naughty tricks, like Trump's win. :D

 

I personally encountered bizarre and funny events this past year. Loved it though. Highly intelligent animal but also a master of tricks and a entertainer.

Rooster years always mean a return to conformity and making sure you meticulously do everything correctly, or the consequences are not that good.  Its a fire rooster, but with Trump hair. LOL

Thank you. :)

Yes it's also a Heart Yin so it goes deep unlike the Monkey which is more about the ego, power play and pranks, but Monkeys are also analytical. Just go easy and slowly as roosters do and you'll collect those 'golden eggs' (rewards as it's a male not a hen) in the long run. I also like this Metal Fire combination, suits my practice really well but also making sure Wood is well nourished or you'll call yourself for trouble since this element mothers Fire. Fire without Wood is like trying to run a car with an empty tank, you simply can't! So love and respect the trees you practice with on a daily basis.

The new element starts to really kick in after two months or so as we are now in a transitioning period between animals. April sometimes can deliver some late unexpected energy from the leaving animal. Be prepared for one last prank from the fiery Ape. :D

I had sent a picture of the Rooster to someone in PM as they asked... but I now realize I removed 70% of my PMs in preparation for the upgrade.... to clean my own house  ;)

 

and so I just went to the upgrade area to get another picture but the CSS errors prevent the display now  :huh:

 

The Rooster has landed...  just take it on faith  :D

I trust you implicitly.  I do, but I forget redundancy can be humorous.

The PM was to me but regretfully the link has disappeared so I can't offer it for viewing.  It is a beautiful picture and will sit nicely on the banner when the time is right.

No, that wasn't it.  But it would be a great one with a little bit of editing.

Perhaps if we replace Monkey with Rooster then the monkey mischievous preventing Dao Bums from migrating to the new software will cease.

You probably experienced how 'nasty' this fiery ape has been (and still is). I have been laughing for an entire year to the weird stuff this animal has delivered. And it isn't over yet. ;)

Sean has it setup on the upgrade server but we're hitting errors and delayed at this point till he returns from a trip.

 

I got an update last night that the upgrade will be attempted again very soon now that Sean is back from a trip.
