Being my travels down those great two lane highways of this nation as well as news I learn about them from media sources. Since I'm also very interested in historic preservation, there will be a lot of that as well.

Groundhog Day Festival in Woodstock, Il-- Part 3
Here's hoping it comes off as we're under another Winter Weather Warning with possibly 8-10 inches of snow expected between this evening and Saturday evening. Right in the middle of Woodtsick's Groundhog Day Festival. I'm hoping to get to some of it, but will have to wait and see. Maybe even the Groundhog Day Dinner and Dance tonight. //// FEBRUARY 1ST, SATURDAY //// 10 AM-- Noted storyteller Jim May gives his groundhog tales and free showing of "Groundhog Day" movie at the Woodstock Theatres (which was in the movie whne Bill Murray did his Clint Eastwood impersonation). Danny Rubin, scriptwriter, will introduce the movie. //// NOON: Chili cookoff at the Woodstock Opera House (Pennsylvania Hotel in the movie). //// 2PM-- Walking tour of filming sites led by Jim Hudgins, site manager of the movie (and the reason it was filmed in Woodstock). //// 4 PM-- Movie Symposium with special guest, script-writer Danny Rubin. //// Later that night, the School District 200 Eduaction Foundation will have a benefit. //// Sunday, the Prognostication at 7:07 AM and the movie showing at 10 AM and Walk at 2 PM. //// Hoping to Catch Some Of It. --RoadDog
