I was recently reading an article about the history of the chicken as it pertains to human diet. -I tried to find it to source here, but failed. Anyways, I too googled "cheeseburgers" and like you found that they came in to vogue later than I would have guessed. It's a relatively recent phenomena in American history. Discovering such things always makes me hopeful for the amazing food stuffs of the future!

It is nice to hear the birds again, I agree. I've been able to take walks outside quite a bit already this year and there is no way that I'd normally be doing that. There are flowers on some of the trees too and you get the smell of spring on the air. I'm not complaining.

I couldn't understand a word she said but I still think she's a great actress. That Fiona Pepper is going places.
