Smile welcome to the forum

hi Bandit,

Gee, I'd forgotten all about this one! Thanks for sharing the lowcarb dressing recipe. Ah, strawberries - kinda reassures that nicer weather isn't too far off. (Wiarton Willy had better be right - he saw his shadow, so an early spring .. ..)

Take care, and happy lowcarbing

Default Re: welcome to the forum

Shouldn't that be the other way around? He saw his shadow so he goes back to hide for another 6 weeks? If he had satyed out it would be an early spring?

(Confused in Cold Lake, as all the groundhogs here seem to have decided to hit the snooze button. Maybe they'll get up next week?)

LOL ... What I meant to say is the opposite - that he did NOT see his shadow, so an early spring ... .. That'll teach ME for trying to make sense when it's way past my bedtime!

Here is the official synopsis from
In Wiarton, at 8:15 am on February 2nd, 2001, Wee Willie came forward to make his prediction. Amid much excitement and speculation Wee Willie did not see his shadow indicating an early spring.

The mystique of the albino prognosticator continues with this young groundhog. Wee Willie has shown the insight of his ancestor and was proclaimed THE Wiarton Willie.
Hey, I just checked out the site, and you can order your very own Wiarton Willie keychain or Wiarton Willie fridge magnet ... ....Ya gotta love free enterprise.


p.s. - to those who may not know, or may have forgotten, last year, Groundhog Day 2000, the crowds gathered early to see the great albino groundhog Wiarton Willie do his thing. Well, Willie did not come out at all, and after much impatience and grumbling from the disgruntled crowd, officials took a peak into his mound, and to their utter dismay, found him keeled over DEAD!! Kind of embarassing, considering this particular event is a BIG tourist draw for this tiny Ontario village. But, it seems the tradition will be carried on with elan by the NEW Wiarton Willie.
