SPECIAL FEATURE:  

This morning’s metal track was You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’ by Judas Priest. Heavy metal really took off in the 1980s. Judas Priest, one of the greatest heavy metal bands of all time, helped activate the genre’s evolution. Their music is legendary, and their image of leather and spikes was widely influential. The song, You’ve Got Another Thing Comin’, is symbolic of heavy metal’s operatic vocal style, crunchy guitar sound, and themes of living life to the fullest.

CULTURE & EVENTS:

Happy Lunar New Year!  Gung Hay Fat Choy! People in many Asian cultures are celebrating this important holiday, and this is the beginning of the Year of the Pig.  If you were born in 2007, you were also born in the year of the pig.

Pigs might not stand out in a crowd. But they are very realistic. Others may be all talk and no action. Pigs are the opposite.

Though not wasteful spenders, they will let themselves enjoy life. They love entertainment and will occasionally treat themselves. They are a bit materialistic, but this is motivation for them to work hard.

They are energetic and are always enthusiastic, even for boring jobs. If given the chance, they will take positions of power and status. Happy New Year to everyone celebrating this auspicous day, especially to everyone born in the year of the pig!

ATHLETICS: 

Girls 7 (Chris) volleyball team playing after school today, and Gabe and Anouk’s grade 6 girls’  team has a practice after school.

REMINDERS:  LEAD

It’s mighty cold out.  For Victoria, that is. Bundle up, watch for ice, and enjoy winter!  More heavy metal coming your way tomorrow morning.
