White skies are a good thing for banning shadows. It is a funny movie. Seems to me there is a part where he starts killing himself in different ways as sort of a goof. For us, we get each day to try to change things if we are so inclined.

Yes, I enjoyed that movie too. Today the tradewinds are back, it was sunny and warm and beautiful. I know how fortunate I am to not be shoveling snow, though it is so peaceful and beautiful. Take care...Connie

Yes, your take on that is spot on. It was a masterpiece of personal development. I just saw him in a film entitled St Vincent. Have you seen that one? You would probably like it also. A different slant on life. Be will on the island!! It must be beautiful.

I love that movie because of the message it shares as we watch him transform from being negative into a positive person who puts others before himself. We see what a journey he takes and how love transforms him. One of my alltime favorite movies. His supporting cast was also most outstanding.thanks for your insight Duke.

I think they are cute. I was referring to the fact when they see their shadow they get grumpy because it means six more weeks of winter. Thank you Paul. Cheers, Connie

We have watched that movie over and over and catch something different every time. One of Bill Murray's best. Hugs, SuZ

I really agree, I think maybe it is his best. He was perfect for the role. Have a great Groundhog Day!

OMG, it is my very favorite film! I have watched it dozens of times. You will love it Jan. Try to look for it as it should be showing today, but you are ahead, so it might have already shown where you are. Thanks so much. Hugs, Connie

I try to watch the movie every year when it comes on. I have a DVD copy just in case I miss it Suz. That movie is so entertaining. Bill Murray is a hoot. Thank you. Hugs, Connie
