I have always ,made my hamburgers/cheeseburgers by mixing the meat with ketchup, dill, parsley and dried onion flakes. I like them thinner, not the big fat lumps of meat. I have to confess that my secret “failing” is using a slice of American cheese. I don’t know why but it just tastes better than the healthier and better sharp cheddar.

If you notice a hole in the upper left-hand corner of your Farmers' Almanac, don't return it to the store! That hole isn't a defect; it's a part of history. Starting with the first edition of the Farmers' Almanac in 1818, readers used to nail holes into the corners to hang it up in their homes, barns, and outhouses (to provide both reading material and toilet paper). In 1919, the Almanac's publishers began pre-drilling holes in the corners to make it even easier for readers to keep all of that invaluable information (and paper) handy.
