First things first, Happy First Day of Spring!  This alone is worthy of much celebration.

Second, and more to the point, here's another reason to celebrate: Dairy Queen is giving away a free small vanilla soft-serve cone -- one per person -- all day today.  Want it chocolate dipped?  That'll cost you.  But, just a buck.

Important note: DQ mall locations are NOT participating in this offer.

Free Cone Day at DQ encourages patrons to donate to Children's Miracle Network hospitals.  Locally, that's Sparrow.  So, if you feel so led, drop some change for an amazing cause.

Ice cream for breakfast, anyone?
