and these are your personal traits apparently

Dogs are human’s most loyal friends protesting their owners since the primitive society. The touching stories about dogs and human beings are too numerous to enumerate. On the street, you can see the dogs helping the blind to cross the street. The renowned Temple of Eighteen Deities on the northern of Taiwan is sacred to a dog saving his master.

Dog people have a strong sense of justice. They are brave, forthright, friendly, loyal to his friends and like righting wrongs. Loyal and honest, they have the most profound sense of duty in career and don’t played job – hopping easily. As a common employee, they can perform well thus are highly regarded by their superiors. There may be problems in work after thirty-five, which requires them to overcome calmly and serenely. They are also good working partners. In love, they are fiercely loyal to those they love.

Their shortcomings for the people under the dog sign are easily angry and irritable. They too often borrow trouble, and anticipate that may geer appear. Also, they are stubborn. They usually pay much attention on the theory while lacking action and judgment. So, never act arbitrarily and dictatorially or they will suffer many disappointments. What’s more, they are fond of getting to the bottom of matters, criticizing others, suspicious and fussy. 

By the time 2019 rolls around what will have changed?

5 questions you may want to have a go at and we will see who will claim smartypants award at years end.

Will Turnbull still be PM?                                                         I say unfortunately probably

Will the libs still be in power?                                                   see above

Who will the SA. election?                                                          Labor

Will Trump still be USA president or will he be sacked?      Still Pres.

Who will win the Melbourne cup?                                              An Australian horse

 

 

But most importantly lets just hope that 2018 is a lot better than shitty 2017 was.

cheers.

I will not be hypocritical and warn you all not to eat or drink to much as I am certain that I will be overindulging in both.

I will however add my usual warning about driving over the holiday period. Be careful there are a lot of stressed, tired, cranky, crazy people out there all trying to get somewhere fast. Be patient and be aware of what is going on around you.I know I don’t have to caution Pubsters against drink/drug driving but plenty of people still do it and unfortunately I can almost guarantee that some peoples Christmas will end in a tragedy.Please don’t let it be your’s.
