It's Groundhog Day ... again

"Today ... is tomorrow." 
-- Bill Murray as "Phil" in Groundhog Day

It's February 2 ... Groundhog Day ... and an annual tradition at our home is to watch the 1993 movie "Groundhog Day" with Bill Murray. It's comical and fun ... but it is also reflective as Bill Murray plays a sullen, arrogant, sarcastic weather forecaster who has to make the annual trek to Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, for the obligatory report on the groundhog's prediction for spring.

It is fun to watch as a pessamist gradually evolves into an optimist who moves beyond thinking of himself and realizes the good of people when he learns to care for others. It's a comedy with a moral that we can watch with the family.

Have a great Groundhog Day!
