A pod of dolphins was spotted off Brighton, Hove and Shoreham last night.

Rachael Sergeant was among those who spotted the pod of dolphins.

She said: “Onlookers were aghast as dark shapes with fins fully breaching the water were spotted by people enjoying the sun outside the Fortune Of War.

“I can’t believe what we saw. We were having a beer outside the down by the water when we spotted the dolphins just out past a buoy.

“More kept appearing as they swam past at speed. We probably saw at least eight.

Happy Chinese New Year 2013, Year of the WaterSnake: Celebrate by ordering in a delicious Chinese meal

On Western calendar, start of Chinese New Year in 2013 falls on Sunday, February 10, 2013 — The Year of the Snake.
The Lunar New Year dates from 2600 BC, when the Emperor Huang Ti introduced the first cycle of the Chinese zodiac. Because of cyclical lunar dating, the first day of the year can fall anywhere between late January and the mid-February. On the Western calendar, the start of Chinese New Year this year falls on Sunday, February 10, 2013 — The Year of the Water Snake.

San Francisco has the oldest and largest Chinatown in the United States and is home to the largest population of Chinese outside of China. The New Year’s celebration is a continuation of a tradition in Chinatown that had been part of the neighborhood since the 1860s, the Gold Rush days.

If you were born in 1917, 1929, 1941, 1953, 1965, 1977, 1989, 2001, 2013, you were born under the sign of the Snake.

Like the houses of the zodiac in Western astrology, the animals of Chinese astrology are thought by many to dictate personality traits or even to impact world events in any year they rule.Snake and those born under compatible signs benefit from good fortune during a Snake year.

2013 Prediction for Snake

Snake can expect good fortune in relationships and look forward to a time when they personally or professionally shine. It will be a year when Snake can easily overcome recent setbacks or obstacles experienced in 2012. Even though Snake may not have the income desired in the first half year, financial fortune comes in the second half year.

Snake Characteristics

Self-reliant Snake’s characteristics are complex. Snakes don’t like to ask others for advice and some see them as cold and calculating – not so, they are just being careful.They need to plan every detail before embarking on an objective. Snake has excellent communications skills, but they are creatures of few words. Quiet and unassuming, they prefer to work alone and are more often in the spotlight for real and lasting accomplishments than for attempts at garnering attention. Actually, they can be a lot of fun when they want to be and they exude a charismatic confidence that is quite sexy.They have the ability to shed adversity like a second skin, and their recuperative powers are legendary.

The list of famous Snakes includes: Oprah Winfrey, John F. Kennedy, Abraham Lincoln, Martin Luther King, Jr., Pablo Picasso, Bob Dylan, James Joyce, Martha Stewart, Kanye West, Pierce Brosnan, Charlie Sheen, Courtney Love, Howard Stern, and Edgar Allan Poe.

Celebrating Elvis Presley on his Birthday week.

10 Random Facts You Didn’t Know About Elvis Presley

Elvis Presley fans are probably the greatest fans in the world.Last night an estimated 15,000 to 20,000 devotees trekked to Graceland in Memphis, Tennesseeand gathered at Presley’s home with candles, flowers and other items to leave at Elvis’s gravesite.Some fans even arrived in sideburns and pompadours in honor of the late singer.

This candlelight vigil is the main attraction during “Elvis Week” which is held this time every year since he

died on August 16, 1977.

Most people know something about Elvis Presley (he wore a pompadour, he sang a song about a

“Hound dog,” and he did that cool dance with his wobbly knees) but here are 10 of the weirdest things you didn’t know about The King of Rock N’ Roll.

1) His entourage was referred to as the Memphis Mafia. All members wore diamond and gold rings with

the letters TCB imprinted which stood for “Take Care of Business.” Daaaannnnngggg. He wasn’t joking about “Jailhouse Rock.”

2) He made 31 movies in his lifetime. Imagine 31 precursors to the Justin Bieber 3D film.

3) Elvis was blonde for most of his life. He started dying it black to appear edgier.

4) Sometimes in the early 1960’s Elvis adopted a chimpanzee named Scatter. Apparently Scatter liked to

look up women’s skirts. Pervy monkey.

5) Despite his huge worldly following, Elvis only performed 5 shows outside the US and all of them were

in Canada. The only time he stepped foot on British soil was during a layover.

6) Elvis was a direct descendant of Abraham Lincoln’s great-great grandfather and Elvis was a distant cousin

of Jimmy Carter. How about that for a family tree?

7) When he was 11 he purchased his first guitar, he wanted a rifle but his mom persuaded him to buy a

guitar instead.

8) Elvis’s manager was a small-time crook. Before Colonel Tom was managing Elvis, he would paint

sparrows yellow and sell them as canaries.

9) Occasionally when performing, Elvis would change the lyrics to his songs and he changed the lyrics

of “Are You Lonesome Tonight” from “Do you gaze at your doorstep and picture me there?

To “Do you gaze at your bald head and wish you had hair?”

10) Actor Nicolas Cage, who was briefly married to Elvis’s daughter Lisa Marie Presley, was the only

person aside from Presley’s immediate family to see the inside of Elvis’s Graceland bedroom.
