MJB Says Let's Embrace the Year of the Dog

Article excerpt

FOR Chinese Nationals, it's that time of year to party on.

Why? Because it's The Year of the Dog and not just any dog, but the Brown Earth Dog.

And what does it mean to us?

The intentions of unkind and selfish people are incompatible with the background male Brown Earth Dog energy.

So, don't call the Gladstone Regional Council's pound if you see me barking at the moon.

You will really need to get deeply in touch with your own dog energy to successfully ride the turbulent waves of life.
