Free Slurpees at 7-Eleven on 7/11!

Today is 7-Eleven's 85th birthday -- and you can get a free Slurpee at participating 7-Eleven's between 11am and 7pm!   7-Eleven has special-sized cups for the event; can you guess it?  Yes, 7.11 ounces of a free Slurpee of your choice!

Hurry in soon after 11am, local time, wherever you are: the offer is good while the special-sized cups last.  Did you know that the Slurpee was "invented" due to a mishap at a drive-in hamburger joint?

A nice way to cool off during the summer!

Summer Reading List for Kids

We think that the Kindle Fire is a great device: tablet functions, nice handheld size, and the color makes reading from an e-reader more fun!  These books are all available on the Kindle -- but hardcopies of the book are also available, of course.

Here are some favorite reads for children in a wide range of ages (age 8 or so -- and up).  Happy reading!  and Happy 4th of July!
