 February, the month of a glorified rodent 

It is just amazing how the first few weeks of 2015 have flipped off the calendar already. What may be even more amazing is how one little fur ball not only gets the PA residents riled up, but the entire nation. That little fur ball, Punxsutawney Phil, gave us six more weeks of winter in a rather silly declaration back on Feb. 2.

As the weather fluctuates and changes more than a teenager’s attitude and we question Phil’s expertise in predicting the weather, realize we are halfway through the first quarter of the year and only five weeks away from the first official day of spring!

And what comes with spring in our industry? SHOWS! Show season is just around the corner and we can’t wait to see everyone out and about. No matter if it is a wholesaler show, a trade show or a fun-filled counter day (Can we say DOE trainings?!), be sure stop by and say “Hi" to the guys from Rich-Tomkins Company.

Oh and don’t forget- “Valentine’s Day is Saturday, don’t screw it up,” reminded the ever-helpful Alan Cohen to the Rich-Tomkins team earlier this week.

And For Our Non-Lovers

We know not everyone is a lover of Valentine's Day, so this section is for you! 

  • Huffington Post has a great list of articles covering any anti-Valentine's Day thing you can think of.
  • This one come from across the pond from with a fun list of anti-Valentine's Day cards. 
  • Lastly, we looked for a good list of meems, but they all seemed to involved a large amount of middle fingers and expletives, so you will have to look them up on your own!
Feel the LOVE!
