Happy Groundhog Day, to one and all.  If you would like to celebrate this day with an interesting and fun movie--which has been called a  "perfect comedy"--I would like to suggest  "Groundhog Day"  with Bill Murray.  I discovered this motion picture when it was televised quite a few years ago, and although I did not think I would enjoy it,  I did enjoy it and I enjoyed it so much I watched it again when it was re-broadcast later in the week.  It is my favorite Bill Murray movie, and I have added a  DVD  of it to my collection.  It is not merely a comedy; it is, in fact, a philosophical journey.  Interesting enough, most people may not realize that Brian Doyle-Murray, who portrays the town's mayor, is in reality Bill Murray's older brother.  ENJOY, ENJOY, ENJOY!!!

A good movie about a silly "holiday".  Of course, the true holiday today is the high holy-day of America:  SUPERBOWL SUNDAY!!

I understand that the groundhog correctly predicted the winner of the Superbowl before returning to his hole to watch the game.

How much ground round could a ground hog hog if a ground hog could hog ground round ?

For those who aren't football fans, Superbowl Sunday is a great day for a Sunday drive. One will find the roads totally free of bothersome traffic. One will also find that the entire world has gathered around a television somewhere so that a stupid tourist can't even find a bite to eat.

  I took a walk downtown on Superbowl Sunday.Looked like a ghost town and was amazingly quiet and peaceful- not any of the usual local idiots in sight.
