Good Morning Gentle Readers,
My local rag and Yahoo's top story of the day is that global warming can't be stopped. Must be so, I heard on Yahoo and they were able to find at least one scientist in each of 113 countries to verify it. Apparently the other 85 some odd countries either don't have scientists or they don't care.
Let's get the California citrus industry on the phone for a second opinion. You know. The guys that had all their assets flash frozen a couple of weeks ago. Actually, maybe you could come out and take a look at my bougainvillea.
The Upside? A warmer climate means more land available for vineyards. See that lake? It used to be a glacier.
In Related News, according to tradition, if a groundhog comes out of its hole on this day and sees its shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather; no shadow means an early spring.
Groundhogs actually come out of hibernation about now looking for a mate, they then disappear underground for another six weeks or so, doing, well, what comes natural. Making more groundhogs.
We Report, You Decipher.
