Happy Groundhog Day

The trouble with weather forecasting is
that it's right too often for us to ignore it
and wrong too often for us to rely on it.

 - Patrick Young

Groundhog Day 2019: Punxsutawney Phil called for an early spring; Staten Island Chuck called for an early spring; Buckeye Chuck called for an early spring; Sir Walter Wally called for more winter; BUT - I was never able to ascertain what Chesapeake Chuck prognosticated. The vote is three to one, with one possible abstention!


From http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Standing_in_the_Shadows_of_Love:

"Standing in the Shadows of Love" is a 1966 hit single recorded by the Four Tops for the Motown label. Written and produced by Motown's main production team Holland–Dozier–Holland, the song is one of the most well-known Motown tunes of the 1960s. A direct follow-up to the #1 hit "Reach Out I'll Be There" (even featuring a similar musical arrangement), "Standing in the Shadows of Love" reached #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1967. It is ranked #464 on Rolling Stone 's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

  From Jimmy Dick ('65) of FL - 02/02/19, @ 7:30 AM:
 

  Good morning on a damp and dreary Saturday. At least it's not heavy and it's quite warm, but there is something about it that is truly amazing. Last Sunday, when we were inundated for 24 hours and looking at the radar, the big cloud was only over Florida. Today, it's pretty much the same way. So, we'll slog along and certainly be okay. And I'll continue to praise my Lord, knowing that He always knows what's best. But when I do get to the part of the pasture where the mud has a tendency to get the consistency of quicksand, I must confess that sometimes He gets my "look." Then, however, I quickly apologize and move on and I think He probably just laughs and He never really allows me to get stuck. And I end up laughing along with Him. Rain, snow, sun or clouds, I hope you have a blessed day wherever you are.

   Thank you, Jimmy!

BONUS GROUNDHOG CROCHET PATTERNS:

Stacey's Phil the Groundhog - "Will the groundhog see his shadow this Groundhog Day? Find out by crocheting your own adorable Phil! Phil measures 6″ tall when completed with worsted weight yarn." - Okay, not free; the pattern costs $5.00, but it's very cute!

Sarah Zimmerman's Groundhog Crochet Appliqué Pattern - "... in celebration of Groundhogs Day, I made up a little groundhog appliqué. I call him Punxsutawney Phil! Although I think he might make a better beaver or gopher. Either way, I am sure you can all find a use for him :)"


BONUS GROUNDHOG (OR MARMOT) KNIT PATTERN:

Knit a Marmot. Because Why Not, Really? - "It’s Groundhog Day, my absolute favorite made up holiday, and Berroco is celebrating along with me with the release of their pattern Marmie the Marmot. Marmots are technically a cousin of the groundhog but really, I don’t think many people will notice the difference in knitting, so call it whatever you like."


BONUS CHOPPED PORK RECIPES (Get it? "Ground Hog?"):

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..."

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."

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 www.ajokeaday.com - 02/01/18:

"Don't give up on your dreams."

"Really? You mean it?"

"Yeah, just keep sleeping."

Standing in the Shadows of Love

Written by
Holland–Dozier–Holland:

Brian Holland (b. 15 Feb 1941), Lamont Dozier (b. 16 June 1941), and Edward Holland, Jr. (b. 30 Oct 1939)
 

Recorded by The Four Tops, 1966


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]
