Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day!

This originates from a German tradition saying that if a hibernating animal casts a shadow on February 2 then winter would last another six weeks! If it sees no shadow then spring would come early. The world's famous groundhog in PA saw its shadow this morning sooooooo winter should last for six more weeks. Here in CA, my little chipmunk hasn't hibernated since December...think that explains the beautiful weather we've been having?:)

Congratulations Steelers! Way to go!
We're not football fans, in fact we only watch the superbowl but what an awesome game. Great plays on both teams! We are Nascar fans though, which should be starting up again soon...ha ha starting up, get it, "gentlemen start your engines!"

Have a great day!

I didn't care who won the game. I was just happy there was a good game. Blow outs are so BORING!

No football fan here but I have several Steeler friends who are "super" happy! :)

I only watch a couple of games a year, but living in PA, I couldn't help but cheer for the Steelers, and what an exciting finish!
I couldn't help but feel a little bad for Kurt Warner. Now there's a nice guy.....who happens to be close to my age, and is still out there. Now that deserves some respect! :)
