March 15, The Year Of The Ox 牛 (until February 14, 2010, then it'll be the year of the Tiger)
And now for something completely different. When I created the computer game Shanghai: Second Dynasty, I collected numerous wise sayings from the great Chinese philosopher, Kong Few Shun, for use in the game as rewards for winning a game of Shanghai. Kong Few Shun's wise sayings weren't seen by those who played actual mah-jongg. And the game has been out of print for almost a decade. It would be a shame if Kong Few Shun's wisdom was lost forever. So herewith, a small sampling.
