Happy Chinese New Year 4705 (Year of the Pig)

So, is it a boar or a pig? Let's go with the latter, and say we raise a Blind Pig IPA, a Pig Iron Porter. Or hang out at The Spotted Pig or the Flying Pig Saloon? Too bad the Mad Boar Brewpub in North Myrtle Beach is closed, or we could also raise a Snout Stout! On Sunday, February 18th, Chinese New Year 4705 celebration begins. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Years 1923, 1935, 1947, 1959, 1971, 1983, 1995, 2007, 2019, 2031 Pig personality traits Intellectually curious, honest and tolerant, those born in the Year of the Pig can be relied upon for their loyalty and often make true friends for life. Like the knights of old, Pigs are often highly regarded for their chilvary and pureness of heart, and will often sacrifice their own well-being for the greater good. The Pig can be very naive, however, and may easily fall victim to the unscrupulous who take advantage of their idealistic nature - as Pigs see everyone as loyal and caring as they are. Although forced to play the fool many times, they will just as likely hold fast to the notion that everyone is at heart decent and admirable. Stubbornly optimistic, the Pig will not tolerate those with well-meaning advice on how to be a Pig, but since they dislike quarreling and discord their anger usually cools quickly. Sometimes looked upon as a snob, the Pig just finds it right and natural to exhibit good manners whenever possible. Their main goal in life is in serving others, and no matter how difficult circumstances become the Pig will never waiver or retreat, forging ahead in the sure knowledge that all will be well. Pig people love to read, are generally thirsty for knowledge, and not readily talkative, but if presented with an opportunity to discuss topics of interest with like-minded individuals Pigs may find themselves talking non-stop for hours! People born in the Year of the Pig are trusted associates in whatever career they happen to choose and often shine as entertainers, social activists or politicians. Pigs are most compatible with : Rabbit, Sheep Famous people born in the Year of the Pig : Lucille Ball, Humphrey Bogart, David Bowie, Bamber Gascoigne, Thomas Jefferson, Elton John, Ernest Hemingway, Alfred Hitchcock, Mahalia Jackson, David Letterman, Dudley Moore, Gerry Rafferty, Arnold Schwarzenegger
