Happy Ground Hog's Day

 


If Candlemas Day be fair and bright,
Winter will another flight:
But if it be dark with clouds and rain,
Winter is gone and will not come again.

The Ground Hog saw saw it's shadow.

It's been summer weather out here in Southren California, today in the high 70's. And although the surfers love it our farmers are concern. The grape crop is suffering, so be prepared to pay more in wine, as well as our strawberry corp, be ready to spend more on strawberries. But hey, what isn't going up in cost? And more businesses are closing down. Even in chi-chi high end Malibu restaurants and local shops are concern. Yestreday, I was at a very fine resturant over looking the ocean and noticed that it was as packed as I would think it should be on a late Saturday aftrenoon and the bartender and I started chatting and he said that they were cutting back on the staff due to the lack of business. So even the spoiled & rich and famous are feeling the pinch of this economic slow down. Economic Slow down my eye! Let's call it for what it is, a DEPRESSION! Brother can you spare a dime!

Happy Ground Hog's Day!
