It’s Groundhog Day!


Groundhog DayIn the ever popular 1993 “Groundhog Day” movie  the main character  says at a town bar:

“Phil: What would you do if you were stuck in one place, and every day was exactly the same, and nothing that you did mattered?

Ralph: That about sums it up for me.”

Carolyn’s note: If you’re having one of those days or years, consider trying something NEW.  And rent the “Groundhog Day” DVD at Casa Video or find it at your local public library.  See it tonight at The Screening Room downtown (see below).

 Will groundhog  Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow today?  Maybe going to see that famous groundhog in Punxsutawnery, PA is on your bucket list. (It used to be on mine till I thought about all that cold & snow in
February).  It’s only 37  degrees F there this morning, with light snow showers.
Happy Groundhog Day today! Will Punxsutawney Phil see his shadow this morning?  Watch the live coverage at, which starts at 6 a.m. EST.
