Happy May Day! This last week has been pretty hard, with all the rain, wind, and cooler temps. I think I’m starting to grow moss, and I know I’m not the only one itching to get outside, clean up the lawn and garden, and usher in the warm sunny spring days. Fortunately April Showers bring May Flowers, so with the turn of a new month, I’m looking forward to plenty of blooms. 

Business Member News

Every day I read a new report how social media, especially Facebook, just doesn’t have the reach that it used to. Did you know that social media is only supposed to be a part of your entire marketing plan and not the foundation? Websites, blogging, and local marketing like this newsletter provides need to be an integral part of your plans. Cut through the clutter and reach more people, contact RelyLocal Wausau today to find out how.

You’ve seen those beef round roasts in the grocery store for low, low prices (in fact Trig’s has bottom round on sale for $3.99 lb this week). What do you do to make a tough piece of meat nice and tender? How about slicing it into French Dip or Hot Italian Beef sandwiches:
