Happy New Year! Good Luck and Prosperity in the Year Of The Tiger!
新年好!   恭喜发财!   萬事如意! 虎年!


Let us hope this Year of the Tiger is better than the last Year of the Ox! Restrictions on family gatherings have eased here, so Reunion Dinner was a bit more festive than last year. Back home, of course, the annual Chūnyůn migration is still heavily curtailed by government restrictions on travel. Here's hoping too that the governments of my birthplace and my adopted home manage their relations more sensibly and productively in the coming year. :-\
I'm sorry I've been so inactive here, but you are in my thoughts.

As a Dragon I have one of the worst years, though my daughter is a Rat so she has an even worse year

Akima: I have noticed than on certain sites the fonts are much more readable, traditional or simplified; Japanese, ROC or PRC.

Did you have trouble reading the characters in my posting?

I was browsing some website where they had some really easy to read traditional fonts where the curves (it was not the fact that they were traditional, they just flowed more normally)  -- for a Bulgarian person, at least. I'm afraid I don't remember it. I think it was ROC. The hanzi were just much more easier to read. The font just flowed.

Have you tried using a different theme?  The fonts used might be different.
