Groundhog Dropped By NY Mayor Dies

The groundhog that escaped Mayor Bill de Blasio's grasp during this year's Staten Island Zoo Groundhog Day ceremony died a week after the fall.

But the rodent, which had just predicted six more weeks of winter before tumbling several feet from the mayor's hands, was not the zoo's famed Staten Island Chuck, but rather a stand-in named Charlotte.

Moreover, the zoo did not notify the mayor's office of the death, which was first reported by The New York Post. The story electrified social media on Thursday, prompting a flood of Twitter jokes about a #Groundhoghazi cover-up and de Blasio's possible impeachment.

Personal Blog: I am back. Doing OK.

I had to deal with death in my family. I am doing good now. Life is beautiful.

If we remember our loved ones, they will live forever. Our cute Shirley Temple will live forever. This is the reason why I started this website... we love them.

I lost motivation for a few month.
I am back now.

I will try to catch up with past events I missed.

God bless everyone.
