Groundhog Day Is the Best Holiday, Top 10 Reasons Why



Top 10 Reasons Why Groundhog Day Is the Best Holiday

Groundhog Day is underrated!

Earlier this morning Punxsutawney Phil predicted in early spring. Way to go, Phil!

"And so ye faithful,
there is no shadow to see
An early Spring for you and me."



Lots of people could care less, however, I think Groundhog Day is one of the best holidays all year, here's why.

  1. I don't have to buy anything for my kids.
  2. We don't spend all day cooking then all evening digesting.
  3. I don't have to buy a card, although, I probably could find a few if I know Hallmark.
  4. Groundhogs are cute in pictures, but not cute enough that my kids want to have one as a pet.
  5. My in-laws are not expecting me for dinner, although, I might call to see what they're having.
  6. Very few additional turkeys will be put to death.
  7. Heavy alcohol consumption is not required, but is optional.
  8. Very little drama on Facebook comparatively.
  9. The only holiday movie ever made about Groundhog Day was actually pretty damn funny.
  10. Punxsutawney Phil's reality show is better than anything produced by Kardashians.
Happy Groundhog Day!

Personal Space: an invisible disability

The worst part about being disabled for me may surprise you.  In a previous post I invited you to share your thoughts about disability. (See:  The Worst Part of Being Disabled)

I face numerous frustrating challenges on a daily basis. I'm constantly dependent on others. I need help bathing and dressing. I can't drive, cook, hold a book or feed myself. I rely on family, employees, technology and the goodwill of others. Some days it's frustrating, but I've learned through experience how to manage all this help.

Other frustrations are attitudinal barriers. Today I live very comfortably and have a high family income. I'm an entrepreneur, but not because of my unquenchable desire to build businesses, but because very few companies would be willing to give me a job. I made the decision more than 15 years ago that I could build a business easier than I could find a job, so that's what I did.

My single biggest frustration however isn't getting the help I need or overco…

How United Airlines Should Have Handled the Situation

United Airlines is under fire for a viral video that shows them removing a passenger forcibly from an airplane bound for Louisville Kentucky.
Here are the bullets:

The plane was already loaded and full.The airline needed to fly four employees to Louisville Kentucky on the plane.

No one took the offer.The airline went to a lottery, drawing for people at random. These four people were asked to leave the plane, and they would receive the compensation.One of the passengers refused to leave. It's unclear how things escalated, however he was removed by security officers. Reports are conflicting about whether the officers were police officers, TSA workers, or airline staff.The gentleman was literally physically dragged down the aisle receiving while screaming in protest and physically abused in the process.Ap…
