Joe: That is a neat farm for certain. It's that time of year for the groundhog to tell us we have 6 more weeks of winter. I'm sure we have it coming and I'm ready to go fishing.

What are the chances Punxsutawney Pill WON'T see his shadow?

Gotta love farms and farmers! (I live in rural Ontario.)

What a neat farm, Joe... I'd love to visit that one. The red barn is gorgeous...

Did you hear that PETA wants to change the live Groundhog at Punxsutawney--to a ROBOT.??.. Gads---what is up with that???? STUPID idea!!!

Nice tour Joe -- great old tools! Bill always says "my dad had one of those..." Good that the park district there is able to keep this historical site available to the public; we love stumbling on places like that.
