    Easter dilemma

    So I am sitting in my sister's church Easter morning. Across the aisle and up one, I notice a while fleck on a lady's dark bob. As I watch it it moves. It's about 1/4 inch long and inch worm like. What would you do?

    Seniors Discount Getting it early?

    I will not be 60 for 4 months but I have been getting a Senior's discount lately. Several places start discount at 60 and some at 65. I don't ask for it and often don't even notice it until after the fact. Part of me hopes I do not look that old, and the other part appreciates the savings...
