Groundhog Groundhog


Can't believe that another year has gone by and that it's once again Groundhog Day.


My mom and dad are in Punxsutawney, PA, to watch Phil give his prediction. I'm sure that we're all waiting with bated breath for TLP's report when they return later this week.


Today is also known as Candlemas. A group of people at my church are showing Bill Murray's Groundhog Day movie tonight, and having a taffy-pull. Not sure what the connection there is.

I hope that Phil tells us that spring-time weather is on the way!


To see a video of the event, go here: http://www.wgal.com/video/6682543/detail.html.
CNN has one, too, but I couldn't get it to run.

I love that idea of showing that movie, maybe it will be playing on TV tonight.

OK it is a stretch (couldn't help it)...but maybe a taffy-pull because the day keeps gooiiinnnggg.

Hmm. Candlemas. Taffy. If the salt has lost its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is neither fit for the land nor for the dunghill, but men pull it into candy.

Oh, leave me alone, Soapy!

Happy groundhog day everybody and I think he saw his shadow. I have no idea what that means though!
I love the movie as well and unlike all of you I have ssen it doubted in German. Bill Murray has a nice German voice :)

Just once, I would like to see the groundhog bite the dog water out of the guy wearing the top hat.

I mean here is this groundhog, perfectly happy in its warm and cozy little hole in the ground - when along comes some dude who just pulls it out into the snow and cold.

I would bite the guy!
