On February 7, ...

... 1971, Switzerland's all-male electorate voted 621,403 to 323,596 to permit Swiss women to vote in federal elections. The result surprised pundits, who expected a repeat of 1959, when, following an antisuffrage campaign whose slogan was Kinder, Kirche und Küche -- Children, Church and Kitchen -- a similar proposal was defeated by a 2 to 1 ratio.
... 2008 (today) , much of the world, especially folks in Asia and Asia-influenced communities throughout the world celebrate the Lunar New Year. It's out with the Pig and onto the Year of the Rat (left) in this year 4705 on the ancient calendar.
[W]e can expect 12 months of plentiful opportunities and prospects not to mention being relatively free of turbulence, (which is great to know especially if you're planning on making some long-term investments, starting new projects, or keeping the home fires burning brightly).
Thank goodness!
