problem using recursive grep (-r option)

Tue Aug 7 15:08:00 GMT 2012

If I use the command:

grep -nH -r "my pattern" *.*

I get results back as expected

But if the file pattern is like this:

grep -nH -r "my pattern" *.log

I get no results back (Even though I have a ton of files with this pattern
with .log file extension).

Am I doing something wrong?
