The Trouble With Coupons - 06/30/14

  I love it when I have a restaurant or a grocery store coupons.  One of the stores I shop sends great deals to my house for things they know I buy because they're tracking.  I love em' but don't use them as often as I should.
  Here's the problem for me, I often don't have the coupon when I need it.  The family says let's eat here and I say great we have a coupon good for a free drink or desert with a meal purchase.  Oh, it's in mom's car.  And then there's the Dr. Pepper coupon I cut out of the box on a 12-pack of drinks.  It was like a dollar off.  I kept thinking I'll use that.  It sat on my desk at work until it expired.
  Every time I was at the store and the deal was such I thought this is a great time to buy some soft drinks, I didn't have the coupon.  I wonder if they'd let me take pictures of them and just scan the picture on my phone?  I promise, I'll delete this pic right in front of you so I can't use it again.
  There's got to be an easier way.

GIANT EARTHWORMS RETURN

LEWISTON, Idaho (AP) -- Giant worms! No, we're not talking about a summer horror flick but the result of spring showers. Rare, giant earthworms are appearing on the Palouse Prairie in Idaho. Worm lover Cass Davis tells the Lewiston Tribune he found three foot-long worms while hiking last weekend. He thinks they're giant Palouse earthworms, which can grow up to a yard long. The worms were believed to have been extinct until a researcher found one a decade ago.

SEX FOR DRUG TESTS

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) -- It's a case involving sex and drugs -- but with a twist. Now a lab tech is going to prison. Prosecutors in Albuquerque, New Mexico, say Jayson Bice offered to fix women's drug tests in exchange for sex. He's been sentenced to six years. A jury earlier convicted Bice of extortion and accepting a bribe. He pleaded guilty in April to two other extortion counts.

HOUSTON GORILLAS

HOUSTON (AP) -- It's a $28 million dream home. But the residents are just a bunch of big apes. The Houston Zoo is showing off its new gorilla quarters. Seven of the endangered primates now live in the new state-of-the-art indoor and outdoor exhibit. A family of three of those gorillas are transplants from the Bronx Zoo in New York. It took Houston Zoo officials four years of fundraising and construction to make the gorilla home a reality.

WATER USE APP

FRESNO, Calif. (AP) -- Some California school kids are turning high-tech entrepreneurs. Five Riverview Elementary School students in Fresno have come up with an idea for an app to monitor water use. The state is in the grip of a record drought. The Fresno Bee reports the kids presented their idea to officials in March. Now, the Fresno Chamber of Commerce and businesses including AT&T are kicking in more than 50,000 bucks to develop the app. It will be free and should be available for download by the time school starts in the fall.
