A busy February

Gung Hay Fat Choy!Today, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow. Winter will end in six weeks. You can count on it—sorta—and not a week too soon for that 2/3 of America battered by winter.

Be strong, America. March 17 begins a whole new season!

Black History Month has begun, too. Its importance is obvious: recognizing the many accomplishments of many people over time.

But as I maintain, it’s good history also. We’re all able to watch a relatively new history being developed, about people whom history largely ignored—and maybe, people who had to work around a history that was part of what oppressed them. Black history balances and adds to our history. It is good history to study.

Tomorrow is New Year’s all over again. (2 is better than 1, no?) Lunar New Year, Year of the Rabbit, begins tomorrow, February 3. Get to the parades and check out these recipes.

If this is how a New Year’s tastes, I’ll take two! Gung Hay Fat Choy!
