It's hard to believe, but Memorial Day weekend is almost here. We're just days away. Take some time this weekend to honor and remember those servicemen and women who made the ultimate sacrifice to ensure our continued freedoms and way of life. They're the reason that we live in the greatest country in the world!

Time to get the grill ready and the meat marinated, Memorial Day weekend is coming

One way the family and I like to celebrate and observe the day is with a big cookout. For the fair-weather griller, this will be the first big cookout of the season. For the rest of us, it's just another great weekend that we'll be cooking out, and a three-day weekend at that. Personally, I don't care what Mother Nature's up to. I'll light the grill in the rain, snow, day, night, good or bad weather. There's never a bad time to fire up the grill.
