Toasts of The Day

- from Groundhog Day (the Movie) -
Phil Connors speach Take 1
Once a year, the eyes of the nation turn to this tiny Pennsylvania hamlet...
to watch a master at work.
The master?
Punxsutawney Phil...the world's most famous weatherman,
the groundhog...who, as legend has it, can predict the coming of an early spring.
The question we have to ask ourselves today is, "Does Phil feel lucky?"
Then it's the same old schtick.
The guy with the big stick raps on the door.
They pull the little rat out.  They talk to him.
The rat talks back and then they tell us what's gonna happen.
Isn't he cute?               
You like your guys with prominent upper teeth?
"This February  at  _ and  _   seconds...
Punxsutawney Phil, the seer of seers...
prognosticator of prognosticators...
emerged reluctantly,
but alertly...
in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania...
and stated in Groundhogese...
"I definitely see a shadow. "
Sorry, folks.  Six more weeks of winter.
Phil Connors speach take 2
It's Groundhog Day again.
That must mean we're at Gobbler's Knob
waiting for the forecast...from the world's most famous groundhog weatherman...
Punxsutawney Phil...
who's just about to tell us how much more winter we can expect.
Phil Connors speach take 3
This is pitiful.
A thousand people freezing their butts off, waiting to worship a rat.
What a hype. Groundhog Day used to mean something in this town.
They used to pull the hog out and eat it!
You're hypocrites, all of you!
You got a problem with what I'm saying?
Untie your tongue, and you come out here and talk.
Am I upsetting you, Princess?
You want a prediction about the weather,
you're asking the wrong Phil.
I'll give you a winter prediction.
It's gonna be cold...
it's gonna be gray...
and it's gonna last you for the rest of your life.
Phil Connors speach take 4
Once again, the eyes of the nation have turned here to this...
tiny village in western Pennsylvania.
There is no way that this winter...
is ever going to end...
as long as this groundhog keeps seeing his shadow.
I don't see any other way out.
He has to be stopped.
I have to stop him.

Phil Connors speach take 5
When Chekhov saw the long winter...
he saw a winter bleak and dark and bereft of hope.
Yet we know that winter is just another step in the cycle of life.
But standing here among the people of Punxsutawney...
and basking in the warmth of their hearths and hearts...
I couldn't imagine a better fate... than a long and lustrous winter.
From Punxsutawney,
it's Phil Connors.
So long.

- In Honor of Groundhog Day (The Movie). This is the drink Phil Conners (Bill Murray) forces himself to drink every day for ten years to impress his producer (Andie MacDowell) while he was stuck in a cycle, re-living Groundhog's Day.

Wine of The Day

 Concannon Vineyard Tempranillo (2007)
Style - Tempranillo
Central Coast,California

Beer of The Day

E.S.B. (Early Spring Beer)
Brewer - Sierra Nevada Brewing Co. ;  Chico, California, USA
Style - English Extra Special Bitter - Seasonal
ABV 5.9%

- From the Brewer - Our ESB combines the best of English tradition with West Coast style. A blend of malts featuring British-grown Maris Otter is balanced with the earthy spiciness of hand-selected English and US hops. The ale is left unfiltered, which enhances mouthfeel and hop aroma creating a slightly reddish-copper hue.

Joke of The Day

Over breakfast one morning, a woman said to her husband, "I bet you don't know what day this is." "Of course I do," he indignantly answered, going out the door to the office. At 10 am, the doorbell rang, and when the woman opened the door, she was handed a box containing a dozen long stemmed red roses. At 1 pm, a foil wrapped, two-pound box of her favourite chocolates arrived. Later, a boutique delivered a designer dress. The woman couldn't wait for her husband to come home. "First the flowers, then the chocolates, and then the dress!" she exclaimed. "I've never had a more wonderful Groundhog Day in my life!"

Quote of the Day

"I'd like to say a prayer and drink to world peace."
- Bill Murray as Phil Connor
