First Day of Summer arrived today and it looks like we are going to have summer like weather for most of the week. And just as summer arrives, so does my "summer cold". Stuffy nose, watery eyes, scratchy throat and deep cough. Not the kind of symptoms to have if I'm "on the air". I did manage to get through the show today and hopefully will feel better tomorrow.
We also talked about the different ways to dress up a hot dog. Do you like yours with all the "fixins" or just a good old PLAIN dog? You can easily "fancy up" the hot dogs at your next BBQ.
Rueben Dog: 2 Tbsp. sauerkraut + 2 Tbsp. grated Swiss cheese +
1 Tbsp.Thousand Island Dressing
Salty Dog: 2 tsp. yellow mustard + 3-4 bread & butter pickles +
1 slice cooked bacon, crumbled
Tropical Dog: 2 Tbsp. chopped fresh pineapple + 1 Tbsp. chopped sweet red
cherry pepper + 2 Tbsp. fresh cilantro leaves
You might know of someone who is a very hard worker and deserves recognition.
Sears and "Dickies" are sponsoring the 2010 American Worker of America contest. You only need to answer 2 easy questions on their website and you could win the one of 6 regional prizes of $5,000 each and one grand prize of $100,000. We spoke with Michael McGee of Broken Bow, Oklahoma. At 23, he purchased a 41 acre horse training farm. Today, two years later, he is an agricultural teacher and advisor for the Future Farmers of America at his high school. He credits his early achievements in life to being a normal guy with a dream and good, old-fashioned hard work. So check out the website: http://www.workeroftheyear.com/
