Your morning start for Friday, Aug. 20, 2021

Good morning and a very happy Friday! We bring you good news: after getting some much-needed rain yesterday, showers are once again in the forecast for today.

Fun fact: An American man has eaten more than 30,000 Big Macs

Wisconsin’s Donald Gorske recently celebrated a new milestone in his love affair with McDonald’s Big Macs: he just consumed his 32,340th Big Mac.

According to Guinness World Records, Gorske has held the title for the most Big Mac burgers eaten in a lifetime since 1999. His Big Mac odyssey began in 1972, and his routine involves eating two Big Macs per day, equaling a total of 14 a week.

“I love hamburgers like no other food. I am closing in on 50 years of eating them next year, after eating a Big Mac every single day,” said Gorske. “This is a McDonald’s Big Mac – it’s the best sandwich in the world! When I like something, I stick with it all the time.”

“Things have been better for our staff and myself. Some staff have received super generous tips from customers,” said Amanda Lysohirka, co-owner of Penticton’s Booster Juice stores.

“Myself and my business partner, John have received emails, private messages and comments on the news article with words of encouragement and praise which I have taken screenshots of and will be sharing it with all the staff as they deserve the credit,” Lysohirka told the Western News.
