Welcome 2009, and the year of the Ox. I am a rat. 2008 was the year of the Rat. Having it be your year is not all that it is cracked up to be. I have been writing 2009 on things since last February... odd. Here is my guinea pig Miss Melba Toast, as you can see she is very excited about her close up. She wishes you all a healthy, happy and prosperous (which could mean 'full of carrots and fresh romaine') New Year, and so do I. A Happy and Delicious New Year to You!
