Orange You Glad Spring is Coming?

Orange You Glad Spring is Coming?

       Winter months….and unreliable groundhogs… Is there anything worse than unreliable rodents?  They are especially bad when they can’t agree on something as simply as seasonality.  This past weekend on Groundhog Day  Wiarton Willie (from Ontario) and Punxsutawney Phil (Pennsylvania’s)  saw their shadows and said Winter will continue while Shubenacadie Sam (Nova Scotia), Fred la Marmotte (Val… Continue Reading

  Like I said before, life is about choices. I present you with this: Option 1– Stumble out of the house the day before Halloween in a panic because you have put it off long enough. You need a pumpkin or those jerk teenagers are going to egg your house and then smash the neighbor’s… Continue Reading
