People in western Pennsylvania have this curious holiday where they rely on a furry rodent to predict the weather. In the town of Punxsutawney, (punks eh tawny), an old Indian name meaning 'where fools hangout', feb 2nd is a major holiday. They put this poor groundhog, also known as a woodchuck, in a box. At dawn they wake him up with a prod in the butt to get him to come out and see if he can see his shadow or not. If he sees his shadow he gets scared and returns to the dark. That means it will be six long weeks until spring. If he fails to see his shadow that means there will be an early spring in six short weeks. Then the politicians make speeches and everybody gets drunk. That movie was a lot of bull, it doesn't happen over and over. I think they just want an excuse to get drunk. Groundhog does taste good baked as a roast.

never saw the film in question, but my youngest brother, the high paid cell phone traveling tech who works for the Chinese [Jan. 31 st Chinese New Year, year of the horse] used to be a ham operator when he was young and had many talks with Arizona's then senator Berry Goldwater, they did talk about Groundhog Day, but also Goldwater related his run in with Gen. Curtis LeMay over the issue of UFO materials: LeMay and UFOs[edit]
The April 25, 1988, issue of The New Yorker carried an interview with retired Air Force Reserve Major General and former US Senator from Arizona Barry Goldwater, who said he repeatedly asked his friend General LeMay if he (Goldwater) might have access to the secret "Blue Room" at Wright Patterson Air Force Base, alleged by numerous Goldwater constituents to contain UFO evidence. According to Goldwater, an angry LeMay gave him "holy hell" and said, "Not only can't you get into it but don't you ever mention it to me again."[42]

Is that where you think they keep the grand-daddy of all ground hogs? Or are you saying groundhogs were an alien species endowed with forecasting abilities?

How much wood could a woodchuck chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood?

Gary staring out his bedroom window on a warm 74' Feb. 2nd morning [it feels like 94' because of my Tacycardia] has to decide if he should bother to put on pants this bright sunny California day. I really have no idea why you folks need a woodchuck for meteorological purposes? Sounds both strange and silly to me, but be happy that all you have is a woodchuck instead of Godzilla lurking about, eh? So, ghost of General La May, what is behind your Blue Door? I hear that the Chinese Jade Rabbit Moon rover has failed to find >any< remains of our Apollo 16 landing site. What could it mean? What is behind La May's Blue Door might be why the Chinese are so puzzled that there are no remains at one of our Lunar landing sites. Behind the Blue Door....Roswell ladies, short hairless creatures neither male nor female with six digits extremities and no sex organs or bellybuttons; the Pixies are real. Always thank the "little people" for any kindness in your life said Grandmother Gladys.

it is nice that my maternal grandfather's first cousin founded the Toronto Stock Exchange [2nd largest in North America], Lieutenant-General Howard Douglas Graham, but I am not allowed to express comment on the present adjustment. 1960's slogan: "You do not need a Weatherman to know which way the wind is blowing." Try a woodchuck instead?

I'm sure the Chinese were simply looking in the wrong spot. It wouldn't be hard, the moon is a large place. Plus, if the jade rabbit works as well as my phone are they sure they are even on the correct moon? Personally I thing if they would have sent a jade ground hog they would at least know how many weeks away spring was.

the computer you are using was made in China. there is no "Spring" on the Moon. perhaps by hiding the fact that humans have walked on the Moon the "little folks" can forestall our entry into some great Cosmic community status?

Everybody has heard that the moon landings were a conspriacy to embarass the soviets. True?? Idk.

Doesn't matter, I believe the moon will still be there after the six looooooong weeks until spring. Hey only 42 days til st patricks. Don't forget madris gras!

Valentine's Day [red and white], Madris Gras [purple, green, and gold], and St.Patrick's Day [green and gold] are all coming up. Do not forget Valentine's Day Bobbie Pan or you might find out why the colours are red on white. Blood on the snow in Western Pennslyvania. Slyvania comes from Latin for forest. "Across the forest" you get Translyvania. "Admiral William Penn's forest" gives us Pennslyvania. You live in a state named after an Admiral of the fleet. Does the groundhog get paid for what he's been through? Does he at less get to bite some guy wearing a top hat? You have eleven days to find something cute and nice.

The Moon will still be there after six long weeks, the question is, if he forgets Valentine's Day, what about our Bobbie Pan? Blood on the snow in the admiral's forest? Did it all start with talking about the Moon? I saw her from behind that night and just started talking about the Moon. Then later you saw stars, right? That comes after you tell her she is not fat [too large] back there? Plead the 5th! My 86 year old step-father is in his last days. Him [the old sailor] and Mom have been together for 61 and a half years and she still has not poisoned him [successfully, that is]. Is love not grand? Remember Valentine's Day.

SAINT Valentines day, is a pagen holiday celebrated to promote pregnancy in stubborn women. Since becoming a "marked day" on the calender, if you don't try and get in the old girls pants you become marked instead. Heed Gary107s warning all you cumbersome men and do your duty. Do gays have to go through this crap too?
