    We have no particular knowledge of whether these discounts are for real or not but , at risk of being accused of internet rumor-mongering , we thought we would pass the list along for our reader’s comments and possible benefit.The grocery store discounts have the ring of truth to them as our regional chain offers 10% off on Wednesdays to those over 55 . Some of the retail and accommodations offers seem a bit generous but perhaps some our readers have firsthand experiences they might share . In any event , it never hurts to ask .

   We did find links to numerous websites that specialize in informing people over the age of 50 of the many many discounts available that are not necessarily well publicized . Some of them include discounts on prescription drugs , Amazon movie rentals and a host of other potential savings . Kind of a modern day Green Stamps program . Just print your coupons and pocket your savings . Every little bit helps in these harsh economic times .

 

 

 

” As I was waiting in line behind an older gentleman at Wendy’s recently,I heard him ask for his senior discount. The girl at the register apologized and 
charged him less. When I asked the man what the discount was, he told me that
seniors over age 55 …get 10% off everything on the menu, every day. (But you need to ASK for your discount.)

Being of ‘that’ age myself, I figured I might as well ask for the discount too.
this incident prompted me to do some research, and I came across a list of restaurants, supermarkets, department stores, travel deals and other types of offers giving various discounts with different age requirements. I was actually surprised to see how many there are and howsome of them start at the young age of 50 .
This list may not only be useful for you, but for your friends and family too.

Dunkin Donuts gives free coffee to people over 55 .
If you’re paying for a cup every day, you might want to start getting it for FREE.

YOU must ASK for your discount !”

” Realizing that he doesn’t have enough altitude to execute a split S maneuver, the USAF Thunderbirds pilot of this F-16 guided his plane away from a crowd of 60,000 and ejected seconds before the plane hit the ground in Idaho, September, 2003. Fortunately there were no casualties.”

… Shot Down by Syrian Rebels

 

 ” In July, the embattled regime of Syrian president Bashar al-Assad unleashed its jet fighters against the growing rebel forces of the Free Syrian Army, marking a major escalation of the bloody civil war. The rebels responded. With guns and, allegedly, Stinger shoulder-fired missiles acquired from the CIA, they sent some of Assad’s roughly 460 planes and copters tumbling in flames to the ground.

Now a Danish architect and part-time aviation journalist is mapping each claimed shoot-down of Assad’s jets and helicopters, resulting in the first running tabulation of the cost — at least in terms of machinery — of the escalating Syrian air war. Bjørn Holst Jespersen’s map, sponsored by journalist David Cenciotti’s blog The Aviationist, marks 19 possible “kills” by rebel forces, as reported in the press or seen in YouTube videos.”
