O making Tod Muan
And hamming it up for the camera :)
The monks from a local Thai temple in San Diego blessed the restaurant my wife used to work at for the New Year. The Thai used to change the year on April 13, but after WWII changed it to Jan. 1. They still celebrate new year the week of April 13, but the year does not change. This year will be 2551 of the Buddhist Era.
