National Cheeseburger Day!


Today, September 18th is National Cheeseburger Day! Here is story of the origin of the Cheeseburger …

Cheeseburger Fun Facts: There are several theories about the origins of the cheeseburger. One story claims that the cheeseburger was created between 1924 and 1926 by a chef named Lionel Sternberger. As the story goes, a homeless man dining at Sternberger’s restaurant in Pasadena, California, suggested the addition of a slice of cheese to his hamburger order. Sternberger complied, eventually added it to his menu, and the rest is history.

Patriot Day


In the United States, Patriot Day, observed as the National Day of Service and Remembrance, occurs on September 11 of each year in memory of the 2,977 people killed in the September 11, 2001 attacks.

Embedded in the memories of everyone who lived through it, this was the day four jet planes were hijacked and crashed into the New York World Trade Center and the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia, causing the deaths of 2,977 people. The fourth plane (United Airlines Flight 93) was directed at Washington DC, but its passengers bravely attempted to take back control and it crashed into a field near Shanksville, Pennsylvania.

Each year on this day, American flags are flown at half-staff to honor and commemorate those lives lost.

World Mosquito Day


World Mosquito Day, observed annually on 20 August, is a commemoration of British doctor Sir Ronald Ross’s discovery in 1897 that female mosquitoes transmit malaria between humans. Ross is responsible for the annual observance, having declared shortly after his discovery that the day should be known as World Mosquito Day in the future.

Here are a couple easy ways to help keep mosquitoes away:

  • Get Rid of Stagnant Water — Make sure there’s no standing water anywhere; on toys left out on the lawn, plates under your flowerpots or garbage in an open can. Ponds, kiddie pools and improperly drained yards can also attract mosquitoes. “Something as small as a bottle cap can be a breeding spot for mosquitoes,” says Jim Fredericks, Ph.D., chief entomologist for the National Pest Management Association. “The good thing is that they can’t fly very far, so if you can eliminate breeding spots on your property, you can greatly reduce the number of mosquitoes near your house.”


  • Plant Herbs & Flowers That Repel Mosquitoes — Surround your outdoor living space with plants that mosquitoes don’t like. Not only will the plants add aesthetic value to your landscape, but they will also do double duty as a natural defense screen. Here are some top choices: Rosemary –This plant contains aromatic essential oils that mosquitoes detest. Lavender – Lavender is another highly aromatic herb that mosquitoes are not fond of. Basil – Cinnamon basil, lemon basil and Peruvian basil work best to keep mosquitoes at bay.


Tire Bead Seating – Productivity and Safety to Get the Job Done Right Every Time!


Tire Bead Seater

  • Use when a tire, new or used, is mounted on a wheel and the tire bead does not touch both sides of the wheel, making inflation possible.
  • The air trigger on this tool expels a tremendous burst of air that inflates the tire to seat it to the wheel rim. This allows the tire to be inflated to the recommended pressure through the tire valve.
