BONUS CHOPPED PORK RECIPES (Get it? "Ground Hog?"):
http://www.chow.com/recipes/30356-easy-slow-cooker-pulled-pork - Christine Gallary's Easy Slow-Cooker Pulled Pork - "The whole point of using a slow cooker is to get the ingredients into the cooker quickly and then be able to walk away. For this easy pulled pork recipe, just coat the pork shoulder with a spice rub of dark brown sugar, chili powder, cumin, and cinnamon, then cook it on a bed of garlic and onions covered with chicken broth..."
http://allrecipes.com/recipe/easy-shredded-pork/ - Easy Shredded Pork - "This is an excellent dish for backyard parties, Super Bowl (or any sports) parties and get-togethers. Serve with rolls or French or Italian bread. Goes great with corn on the cob."
http://www.mybakingaddiction.com/easy-crockpot-pulled-pork-recipe/ - Easy Crockpot Pulled Pork - "...It’s simple, delicious, and most importantly can be slow cooked all day in the crockpot which requires very little effort. It gets a glorious rub down of brown sugar, paprika and other spices before being cooked in a tangy cider vinegar sauce. After about 10 hours in the crock pot, you’re left with incredibly tender, succulent, and flavorful pork...."
FINALLY:From http://www.ajokeaday.com - 02/01/14:

Standing in the shadows of love
Waitin' for the heartaches to come
Can't you see me standing in the shadows of love
I'm getting ready for the heartaches to come
I'd run but there's no where to go
'Cause heartaches will follow me I know
Without your love, the love I need
It's the beginning of the end for me
'Cause you've taken away all me reasons for livin'
When you pushed aside all the love I've been giving
Now wait a minute
Didn't I teach you right, didn't I?
Didn't I do the best I could, didn't I?
So don't you leave me standin' in the shadow of love
I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come
Don't you see me standing in the shadow of love
Just tryin' my best to get ready for the heartaches to come
All alone I'll desperately be
With misery my only company
Come today, in fact come tomorrow
Sorrow, I ain't got nothin' but sorrow
Don't your conscience bother you
How can you watch me cry after all I've done for you
Now hold a minute
Gave you all the love I had, didn't I?
When you needed me I was there, now wasn't I?
(Standing in the shadows of love
Gettin' ready for the heartaches to come)
I've tried not to cry out loud
No gal you ain't gonna help me now
What did I do to cause all this grief
Now what'd I say to make you want to leave
Now wait a minute
I gave my heart and soul to you, didn't I?
Now didn't I always treat you good, didn't I?
I'm Standing in the shadows of love
I'm gettin' ready for the heartaches to come
Hope to see you standing in the shadows of love
Tryin' my best to get ready for the heartaches to come
Standing in the shadows of... [Fade]
in the Shadows of Love"
