GET A FREE STACK
Join the Pancake Revolution loyalty club at IHOP and you’ll get a free Rooty Tooty Fresh N Fruity stack of pancakes just for joining, plus again on your birthday, and then again next year on the anniversary of the day you joined. Just in case your blood sugar is too low. And, no, I have no idea what a pancake revolution is. Learn more here: ihop.com/pancake-revolution
LOOK FOR FLIGHTS
Where do you want to go? My latest obsession is Skyscanner.com, a miraculous site and mobile app where you can look for cheap flights pretty much everywhere in the world. Look for specific places and dates, or just browse. If you love to travel, it’s a great way to waste time in the doctor’s waiting room, or at your kid’s sports practice. You can enter airports such as LAX or John Wayne and then tell the app to show you every cheap flight to everywhere from there, any time — and it will. Warning: It’s highly addictive.
