High: 53°F RealFeel®: 53°F Wind at 6mph partly sunny. I’m off to Leonard mountain today to do more dozer work. The road is coming along nicely. I have two more culverts to put in and more general shaping. I had a rock in the way that turned out to be 10 cubic yards in size, that’s 30,000 pounds. It took me on the dozer and another man on the excavator four hours to pull it out of the road and move it off to the side.


TOTD: When I’m done tonight I’m heading over to a Tulsa landmark. Weber's hamburgers and root beer. Hand cut French fries and the best greasy hamburger made anywhere. They have also had their own brand of root beer for years. What's your favorite hamburger?

Weber's Superior Root Beer Drive-In!

The Weber's Story...
Weber's is a family-owned and operated restaurant that was started in June of 1933. located in the heart of Brookside at 3817 S. Peoria the oldest and longest-running business of any kind located in Brookside.

Weber's Superior Root Beer was the creation of Oscar "Weber Bilby" back in the late 1800's. Oscar and his wife Fanny moved to Oklahoma from Missouri to a 640 acre farm just north of Sapulpa to an area now know as Bowden, Oklahoma in 1884.

I came home from the beach a day early. Ran thru some heavy thundershowers. Supposed to be worse Tuesday.

I need to get my driving Lic. re-newed before the 20th of this month. What fun going to the DMV.

TOTD: I would rather cook my hamburger than eat it out. Many places will not cook it between med. rare and med. well.

The best ones I've had are on the grill at home, with a big lump of blue cheese in the middle. It melts through the meat as the burger is grilled.

I like cheeseburgers best from bars and pubs. As far as fast food goes, as much as their mascot creeps me out, I prefer BK to McDonald's.

There is a chain down here called 'Five Guys." They have the best next to home-grilled.

We do have Five Guys and it's pretty good, especially the fries.

It's 29 F and this will be the nicest day for the rest of the week. After today we will slip into the freezer and stay there.

TOTD: I prefer a homemade grilled burger. I like the blue cheese type that Linda is talking about but the very best combo is Swiss and avocado for me. In terms of restaurant burgers, I like the Willie burger at Lonestar or the California burger at Twisters. Fast food-wise, I'd have to go with BK despite the horrifying mascot.

He's not a genuine clown so the horror factor is missing. He's still pretty creepy, though. :p

I seconder, err... THIRD that emotion.

We have 5 Guys up here, too. My fav is a Big bacon cheese burger, w/ fried onions, pickles, and A1 steak sauce.

Don't you just love how they put the fries is a styrofoam cup, put the cup in the paper bag, and then toss another heaping mound of fries on top? LOL

Oh, and I always douse mine with malt vinegar.

Yes, the serving of fries is creative and more than generous. I actually went to the one on Rt. 12 in the Outer Banks before I ever got to the one here at home.

Hardees and Carls Jr. are the same company. You should have Hardees in Virginia.

We don't have either. We have Hardees, but I never liked their hamburgers when I went to the one that used to be at WMU. There aren't many left around here, either.

Jack in the Box hasn't been in Michigan since the early 70s. We just got the first Sonic in Troy a few weeks ago. Five Brothers is also building around here, but I haven't been to one yet.

When I was a kid, we went to Burger Chef. There wasn't a McDonalds in Kentwood then.

Burger Chef, holy crap. I remember them. They used to be next to McDonalds in my hometown. Of course McD's drove them out but I thought they were OK. In it's place went Arthur Treacher's Fish&Chips which I loved. I think they're still around. I also liked Roy Rogers. They too are around in limited areas. Anybody remember Gino's? They were the burger end of KFC and their signature sandwich was the Gino Giant which looked like the Big Mac.

Today we are expecting a high of 64. Tommorow is the grand opening of the new City Center in Las Vegas, a mega-resort that created over 12,000 jobs. Nevada needed those jobs. If you build it , they will come. :D

It's so big they have their own highways & trams. http://www.citycenter.com/

I wll be spending a long weekend in Las Vegas soon. This should be fun while not resulting in any life changing decisions for me. :p

TOTD: Best burger? A single Butterburger from a Midwest chain called Culver's.

Here in the Southwest, In n Out is very good, they don't even own heat lamps...it's all fresh and hot.

Once in a while I also crave a single hamburger from McDonalds & I love White Castle as long as I don't have plans for the following day. :eek:

Burger King tastes like smoke flavored rubber to me. :D

As I recall, White Castle is fine as long as I'm not more than a ten-minute drive from home. :eek:

My town is getting a Carl's Jr & a Dairy Queen. Not sure yet if the DQ will serve food. DQ used to have a pretty good burger, not sure about now.
