Visit someone who is under the weather with Valentines Day treats and offer to run errands for them.

Get your family and/or friends together and celebrate with a mini tea party. Serve hot tea and cookies. Have pretty paper, glue, scissors, paper dollies available to make old fashioned valentines day cards.

Volunteer at a soup kitchen for a few hours, washing dishes or serving up a meal will be appreciated.

Don’t forget our furry friends. Lend a hand at a community animal shelter or donate pet food or both.

National Cheeseburger Day – 16 Places to Get a Free or Cheap Cheesburger – GoBankingRates.com

ID-10045022It is National Cheeseburger Day and we have found a great article over at GoBankingRates.com offering  places that are giving free, cheap to discounts to celebrate this day.

Some say the cheeseburger was created in 1924 by by Lionel Sternberger, age16, who added a piece of American cheese to a cooking hamburger at his fathers restaurant in Pasadena, California. Both father and son liked it  and named it the “Cheese Hamburger”.

Charles Kaelin who owned a restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky called Kaelin’s, claims he invented the first Cheeseburger in 1934. He claims he wanted to add a new tang to the hamburger and put a “cheese topped burger” on his menu, also claiming to be the birthplace of the cheeseburger.

In 1935 the name “Cheeseburger” was trademarked by Louis Ballast of the Humpty Dumpty Driving-In at Denver, Colorado.

While there are claims of who created this burger wonder, it is still one of America’s favorite foods and shipped all over the world.
