Hello again good evening here I am.  Well I said that there was no nice looking guys here at my job but  there is more than one actually. I haven't become a flirt I just want to admit a few truths. There's quite a few gorgeous guys here at my work.  The guys each have certain physical attributes ( eyes, a beard, style of dressing, a nice smile, height and voice ) etc. etc. etc.

In other news interrupting his  hibernation, the world's most famous groundhog cast a shadow Tuesday over a Capitol hill debate about wasteful Government spending. Punxsutawney Phil, noted seasonal prognosticator was awakened and hauled before the TV cameras in an attempt to rebut charges that $100,000  in federal funds for a weather museum in his hometown amounted to pork barrel spending.

"Pork" is a derogatory term used to describe government spending intended to benefit constituents of a particular lawmaker in hopes of gaining their support.

The Punxsutawney Weather Discovery Center was among about 12,000 grants for "special projects" -called "earmarks". On Capitol hill lawmakers inserted into the $388 billion spending bill that Congress sent to President Bush on Tuesday. From his Appropriations Committee , Representative Peterson was able to secure $100,000 for the Weather Museum. The $100,000 will go to buy displays for the educational museum, which will tell about the history, science, technology and folklore of weather said Peterson. The $100,000 amount was my figure but they wanted more. However it is known that Punxsutawney Phil  is normally aroused on Groundhog's Day which is February 2nd. It is said that if he sees his shadow, six more weeks of winter will follow.  How is it that so much can depend on a Groundhog ????? Someone please tell me.
