SPAM Museum on Saturday in Austin, Minnesota. Funny, Huh? It's a free tour about the history of the Hormel Co. (founded by George Hormel - and Austin resident.) Actually, it did something for me - which was unexpected. This tour opened my eyes to what makes this country so great - and what we've lost too. Hormel supported this nation through depressions, wars, thru good and bad times. Their stock has split like 6 or 7 times. They just purchased Skippy - and it went up again. They have over 4000 employees. The company reminds me of Harley-Davidson Motor Co. Hormel has diversified over the years, where Harley - not as much. I think Harley needs to take a look at Hormel . . . and diversify a bit more. To remain "an American Original" . . . you have to come up with something "original" - your own idea, not just what everyone else is doing. We made some Spam for breakfast. I bought the Spam Lite, and it's still rather high in cholesterol and fat - and sodium. But - delicious ! Fried ! It's American !
NOTE: Above Cheryl is timed to package 6 cans of SPAM . . . and then it let's you know how many cans are produced in production in the same time period. 532 cans to her 6 . . . Did you know that SPAM comes from the two words Spiced and Ham? See Wikipedia for more information on the Hormel Co.
