Some offerings from our friend Honest Hoosier

Some people make fun of having a holiday where we spend too much money and watch for a fat man to come down a skinny chimney. Wonder what they think of Groundhog Day?

Saw a street department guy leaning on a shovel. Looked like he saw his shadow. I guess that means six more weeks of potholes.

If the government wants to put public notices only on their own websites, isn't that a little like the fox guarding the henhouse?

The only thing I saw drop on New Year's Eve was my eyelids.

Not sure how this works, but 2013 felt like it went a lot faster than 2012. Know what I mean?

The wife's charging me a quarter for each time I write 2013. We've already got a mason jar full enough to take a trip to Kokomo.

Only 351 more shopping days until Christmas, 324 to Black Friday! Wonder when we'll see Christmas decorations start popping up in retail stores?

Today's the first day candidates can file to run for political office. They have until Feb. 7 to throw their hat in the ring. Let the games begin.

Happy Birthday, Parke County! You officially began on this date in 1821. May your covered bridges live forever!

What a world we live in. I never dreamed I would think gas at $2.95 was cheap and temperatures of 25 warm.

The good news is that there's only 65 days until spring. The bad news? There's still 65 days left of winter.

I finally found a great use for smart phones. It means you won't have to be stranded without toilet paper. (Assuming you know how to text and have your phone nearby.)

On this day back in 1957 a man named Walter Frederick Morrison sold his toy to Wham-O and voila, the Frisbee was born! Who says newspapers aren't educational!

Took a vacation recently. Went into a pothole and three days later worked my way out.

I just started working on my New Year's resolutions. You know, the ones from last year.

On this date in 1783, George Washington delivered his farewell address to his officers. Some would say the country's been going downhill ever since.

Today marks the 112th observance of the day Walt Disney was born. Never forget the power of one little mouse.

This time of year is indeed magical. Our money seems to disappear into thin air.

No, Mr. Roosevelt, we haven't forgotten. It still lives in infamy.

The year you quit believing in Santa is the year you start getting clothes as presents.

Not sure which lines were bigger, the ones before Christmas or the ones returning stuff now.
