Last Monday we had to put Clive to sleep.  He was a good dog.  Yesterday we got a new dog.    He is a German Shorthaired Pointer.  We got him from a GSP rescue in Montana.  He is a fantastic dog.  His name is Warnie.  We named him after the brother of C.S. Lewis (Clive).  His name was Warren but he went by Warnie.

Black Gold

I received my Starbucks Gold Card in the mail today.  I was excited...why?  I'm not sure.  The Gold Card gives me

  • 10% off of every purchase
  • A complimentary birthday beverage
  • Exclusive offers and discounts
  • Free Wi-Fi access for 2 hours each day
  • Access to a members-only web site
I don't go to Starbucks often enough to make up the $25 annual fee for the Gold Card...BUT...I received one year free because I have the Starbucks Visa card that gives me back 1% in Starbucks cash.  I only drink black coffee from Starbucks.  When I spend $1.61 on coffee I get a return of $.016.  After I purchase 100 cups of coffee I will have enough on my Visa to pay for one cup of coffee.  Now that I have the Gold Card I get 10% off of every transaction - which makes my total for a cup of coffee about $1.45.  My dilemma is this - now that I get 10% off of every transaction with my Gold Card I actually get less money back on my Visa.  What will I do??!!  These are the struggles I face.

Do you have what it takes?

Kirsten and Ezra have similar hair texture.  This causes them to be bedhead rivals.  Do you have what it takes to compete?  Submit your picture and we will upload it to the hall of fame.
