The hamburger has been around since the 19th century.  The mouthwatering creation has evolved since its creation and has become known as an iconic American food.   It originated as a hamburger sandwich consisting of ground steak placed between two slices of bread.  It was a brave step in the culinary world since the two ingredients, steak and bread, had been served alongside one another for hundreds of years.

Historians have varied opinions on who is credited with beef and bread roll sandwich. One version of the hamburger sandwich, and how it changed to the burger we all know and love, is in late 1800’s when a Texas café owner, Fletcher Davis, brought his perfected version of the hamburger to the 1904 St. Louis World Fair.

One of the best features of living in southern Florida is the year round warm weather. Luckily, for us Floridians we often get to walk the beach or surf the waves while the rest of the country is a snow covered, wonderland.

South Florida will continue to be fairly warm and very sunny this week with a cool breeze in the air with temperatures still not beating the season’s record low.

A couple of years ago a Florida man posted pictures on Facebook of himself and his daughters playing with a baby manatee.  Sounds innocent enough but according to the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act, “it is illegal to molest, harass, disturb or touch a manatee”.  The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission authorities arrested the Florida native.

The man had no idea it was illegal to touch the “vulnerable species”.  The man faced a misdemeanor charge that entails a couple hundred dollars fine and a couple months in jail.  He meant no harm to the little manatee.

The manatee is protected by the Marine Mammal Protection Act of 1972, by the Endangered Species Act of 1978, and the Florida Manatee Sanctuary Act of 1978.  If convicted of
