If this is your birthday, congratulations! You are celebrating along with one of the biggest names currently in country music. Singer/guitarist Keith Urban, born in New Zealand, in 1967. Introduced through a three-piece band, The Ranch, he becomes one of the first country icons of the 21st century, winning the Country Music Association's Entertainer of the Year in 2005.

This Is National Mince Meat Day!

Matt Cardy

Today, we celebrate a sweet and tasty meat treat. For those of us that have had it before, we can revel in the great taste. For those of us who have never heard of Mincemeat, don't you think today would be a good time to get introduced to it!?

What is mincemeat? It is a mixture of minced (or chopped up) meats, suet, and fruits.  The meat is usually beef, either ground up or sirloin. Fruits include raisins, apples pear, and others.

Here's the best part! Sometimes liquor is added, most commonly brandy or rum.

Now Let's P-A-R-T-Y!
