Billionaire Ronald McDonald; McDonald’s Burgers.

In listening to a story reported on Good Morning America along with reading a newspaper article about McDonald’s this morning, I am reminded of a saying:

There’s no such thing as a free lunch.

Huh? – you may shrug your shoulders and give a quizzical look!

Well, let’s do some reading about those two items of which I referenced:
First off, head on over to read the story that was reported on Good Morning America. You can read the story item Coffee, Lunch Spending Tops Tax Refunds by Susanna Kim at ABC News Blogs.
Incidentally, a related article appears at The Huffington Post; click on over to read American Workers Spend $1000 A Year On Coffee, $2000 A Year On Lunch.
Then, go on over to read the news article McDonald’s 4Q net income jumps 11 pct by Christina Rexrode, AP Business Writer.

I guess the fact that people spend their money (rather foolishly IMHO) purchasing coffee and lunch at McDonald’s has made Ronald McDonald a billionaire.

Alrighty then. Now, before you say that’s a crock, I ask:
Are you ready for more about the Ray Kroc empire of Mickey Dee’s?

You know and I know that there is much hoopla about McDonald’s Burgers. Have you ever wondered about what goes into making a McDonald’s Hamburger? Well, wonder no more. Take that computer mouse or touchpad and click over to read:

I have read that a hamburger from McDonald’s lasts a long time, a real long time. And now, you can read about it, also. Just go over to:
12-Year Old McDonald’s Hamburger, Still Looking Good, September 25, 2008, Serious Eats, A Hamburger Today, Robyn Lee.

Wait! I have one more thing for you to read. Go on over to read:
