rec_burger_lg.jpg I'm on the road today, headed to Athens, TN for a Hay Day, where I'm a featured speaker. It will be a quick trip as I head back to South Dakota on Friday afternoon, and I'm excited for what the weekend will bring with Memorial Day celebrations and another holiday, National Hamburger Day!

Be sure to share these ideas with your friends, too.
