Happy Groundhog Day!

Happy Groundhog Day! Looks like our Pennsylvania friend Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow.

Granted I always forget what that means. Of course, I have a 50/50 chance of getting it right, but still.

Anyway, it looks as if we can look forward to an early spring! Woo-hoo!

And speaking of cute, furry animals, did you know that the National Wildlife Federation makes it possible for kids (anyone, really) to symbolically adopt an animal? Kids can adopt a snowy owl, a harp seal, bison and lots of other animals. Just make a donation, and they'll receive goodies such as a stuffed animal, poster and a certificate of adoption. That, plus the knowledge that they're helping to protect our world's wildlife.

How fun!
