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!

I'm Disabled and I Can Prove It

I'm disabled. 
I was born in 1970. About a year later I was diagnosed with spinal muscular atrophy. I never walked. I got my first wheelchair at kindergarten age, and my first power wheelchair in sixth grade.
Yet, around 4 to 6 times per year I have to, for one reason or another, prove that I'm disabled.
Granted, I'm 5 feet nothin', 112 pounds and sit in an electric wheelchair, but apparently that's just anecdotal evidence… We need science!
The Good Doctor
Every couple months I have to send my physician a form and ask him to fill it out. He has to state that I have spinal muscular atrophy, identify the diagnosis date, explained that my prognosis is something akin to "ain't getting better any time soon" and sign it.
With new Medicare regulations, the good doctor is not allowed to sign the said form without seeing me "face-to-face" to prevent fraud. Although I'm extraordinarily healthy, hospitalized last in 1996 for something unrelated to my dis…

Endangered Gorilla Killed after Child Falls into Habitat

One of this week’s trending topics on Facebook and twitter was a tragic story. A small boy fell into the gorilla habitat at the Cincinnati Zoo. Minutes later the western lowlands gorilla, a critically endangered species, was shot and killed by zoo personnel.
A tragic story has been made even more tragic through misinformation and misguided opinion on social media.
Here are six ways that Facebook and twitter users made the situation worse.
It’s the mother’s fault!
I’m a father of 14-year-old twins, a boy and a girl. I don’t know a single father or mother that has never in their lives lost sight of their three-year-old. I compare it to a trip to Walmart. You’ll see a toddler screaming and a mother completely exasperated, and usually another child being completely ignored. Those of you without children stand in judgment. I know I did. “If that were my child I would…” I’ll let you complete the sentence in condescending judgment. 
Parents, however, understand. We’ve all been there. Every …
