I’m a big fan of the convenience of online shopping. I also like using coupons and getting a good deal. What I don’t like is searching online for coupons. It seems like practically none of the coupons I find online work! Sound familiar? About a year ago, however, I found an easy, peezy way to get discounts at many online sites including my perennial favorite: Amazon.
My shopping trick is Honey. Simply visit the Honey site, and click to install the Honey browser extension, then shop as usual. When Honey finds coupons for you, you will see a notice on your checkout page asking your permission to try the codes. It takes a few seconds as Honey tries all the coupon codes. Usually (but not always) Honey is successful, and you save!
In addition to coupon savings, many purchases qualify for points called Honey Gold. I never paid much attention to my Honey Gold balance, but today I learned that my balance was worth a $70 Amazon gift card! It was this icing on the cake (or should I call it “Honey on the cake”?) that inspired me to share this with you today. Try it, and let me know what you think.
See ya on the Net,

Penguins Printable(** for Premium Members only)
What is it about penguins that makes them so adorable and so popular? Is it their dapper tuxedo coloring, their upright stance, or their amusing waddle? Whatever the reason, here’s the best of what the Web has to offer penguin lovers and student researchers.
Discovery: Penguins: Waddle All the Way
These video shorts are excerpts from the Discovery TV movie Waddle all the Way. “These feisty and charismatic birds struggle to raise their young against extraordinary odds. Using animatronic cameras cleverly disguised as life-size penguins, Downer’s team was able to infiltrate the protective colonies from an entirely new angle, recording the emotional and oftentimes amusing behaviors of the penguins.” Watch and laugh at the penguin antics and the abuse suffered by Penguin Cams.
This Kidzone gateway page has links to three penguin sections: Activities, Facts, and Photos. Activities include printable worksheets, book recommendations, creating writing sparks, a printable mini-book, questions to answer, and a worksheet for children to summarize what they’ve learned about Penguins.
Monterey Bay Aquarium: Focus on Penguins
“Penguins are appealing animals. We tend to feel a certain kinship with them. Like us, they’re social and curious, they walk upright and care for their young. Besides, they look like they’re wearing tuxedos.” Best click is the live video cam (from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. P.S.T) of the black-footed penguins, hatched in an aquarium in New Orleans but native to South Africa. “Watch our exhibit penguins as they hop up on rocks, dive and swim, much like penguins in the wild.”
