As weird as this may sound there is scientific proof that some days are better than others to get certain activities done. Reader's Digest rounded up some of that research and came up with 7 things that are good to do on a Hump Day!

Since I'm still a laundromat patron, I can tell you from experience that Wednesday truly is a good day to go in & get this chore done. It's usually pretty quiet and a lot of machines are open and ready to go.

Grocery Shopping

Stores are less crowded and weekly discounts are usually out.

Weigh yourself

Not kidding, research shows that you weigh the least on Friday, and the most on Sunday night, but kind of like the Three Bears, your Wednesday weight should be "just right" - -or the most accurate picture of where your weight is.

Go On A Date

Think of it as a midweek reward for a life well-lived. Many bars and restaurants have specials to entice people in during the week and again places should be much less crowded.

Get Married

If all those midweek dates go well, perhaps a Wednesday wedding wouldn't be out of the question. The main benefit, of course, is price. Some venues offer discounts for midweek events and you won't be competing with everyone else for your favorite DJs, photographers, and other vendors.

Take A Flight

Travel experts agree that Tuesdays and Wednesdays are the cheapest days to fly. However, as a recent traveler who bought a ticket for a Wednesday flight, I didn't notice anything cheap about it. I guess it depends on where you're flying to, from Sioux Falls.

Take Off From Work

I'm not sure there is a bad day to take off from work. But the Reader's Digest people seem to think that this is the best day to recharge or get all those chores done, so you have the weekend free.

Dives Worth a Drive in South Dakota, Iowa and Minnesota

Almost every small South Dakota town has a watering hole. It’s where the locals go to kick back a few brews and engage in conversation.

Some of these establishments are located in buildings almost as old as the town itself. There might be a fresh coat of paint on the walls or new vinyl on the booth seats, but the ambiance is still reminiscent of a good ol’ dive.

If you think a "dive" is all about the sketchy clientele, the smell of the Devil’s lettuce, and stale Grain Belt, you’d be wrong. Not every dive has a bad reputation.

What makes a dive, a dive?

A dive has character. Neon beer signs and local memorabilia adorn the walls.

You might find a pool table, dart board, and a few video lottery machines.

The bartender knows the regulars by name and they know what you drink.

Some dives don't even serve food except for bags of chips and pickled eggs that sit in a jar of brine on the bar.

Dives aren't fancy. You might see 70's-style wood panels on the walls and wobbly tables leveled with a folded napkin.

Finally, the bathrooms. The bathrooms in dives are in a class by themselves and could be a whole topic on its own. 

There are several small-town dives in our area with friendly faces, cheap booze with a burn, and even really good food! We use the term "dive" in the most affectionate way.

Here are some of the best and why you should go there.
