Hamburger Competition

Who’s hamburger would you like to try the most? The amateur’s, the home cook’s or the expert’s?

I got some good tips and would like either the home cook’s or the chef’s.

By the way, if you’re in the Chicago area and don’t want to cook your own hamburger, go to Hackney’s. They’ve got a few locations. Order the fired onion rings and Green River to drink.

You are welcome.

Poem of the Week

Look It Over

by Wendell Berry

I leave behind even
my walking stick. My knife
is in my pocket, but that
I have forgot. I bring
no car, no cell phone,
no computer, no camera,
no CD player, no fax, no
TV, not even a book. I go
into the woods. I sit on
a log provided at no cost.
It is the earth I’ve come to,
the earth itself, sadly
abused by the stupidity
only humans are capable of
but, as ever, itself. Free.
A bargain! Get it while it lasts.
