6:45CALI COUPLE FINDS $10 MILLION IN RARE GOLD COINS

Northern California couple got quite the surprise when out walking their dog! They stumbled upon $10 million in rare gold coins buried under an old tree. The coins were recently authenticated. Nearly all 1,427 of them, dating from 1847 to 1894, are in uncirculated, near-perfect condition. The husband and wife, who have chosen to remain anonymous, say they plan to hold onto a few of the coins as keepsakes, but will put the rest up for sale through Amazon. They'll use the money to pay off bills and quietly donate to local charities.

 

7:15 I am officially all over this app! Great idea. NEW APP FINDS GIRL SCOUT COOKIES

Take it from the Girl Scouts themselves and “Be Prepared” – by getting this sweet new app!  The Girl Scout Cookie Locator helps you find where Girl Scout Cookies are being sold near you, as well as when you can get them.  The app locates specific sites - like churches and shopping centers- where Scouts are setting up shop, making it ideal for Thin Mints fiends who don’t personally know any Girl Scouts or someone who does. Also, this young Girl Scout is an enterprising young woman I say! http://www.people.com/people/article/0,,20789558,00.html  Wonder if it also locates your neighborhood medical marijuana dispensary? It also includes a countdown clock so you can get hyped for cookie season.

8:15 Be careful out there...it's snowing and slick. Winter Driving tips...http://www.progressive.com/AtProgressive/top-10-tactics-for-winter-driving.aspx?chnl=1

Andy's top 10 tactics for driving in snow, ice, freezing rain or fog

  1. Allow at least three times more space between you and the car in front of you.

  2. Drive at a slower, but constant speed. Don't drive so slow that other traffic is forced to pass you—go with the flow of traffic and avoid sudden movements.

  3. Black ice alert: The "crunch" sound of tires on snow fades when you're on dangerous black ice—turn the radio off and listen to the road. It also forms from fog or freezing rain. And it's practically invisible, so be particularly careful on bridges and overpasses, which are colder and freeze earlier.

  4. Use lower gears for better traction, especially on hills.

  5. Never use cruise control in slippery conditions; skidding or hydroplaning may cause you to accelerate.

  6. If your car has an anti-lock braking system (ABS), keep your foot firmly on the brake when you need to stop on an icy road.

  7. If your car does not have ABS, pump the brake rapidly to keep traction when braking on ice or snow.

  8. If your car starts to skid, don't brake at all. Instead, steer in the direction you want to go, then brake smoothly once the wheels regain control.

  9. In fog, use low-beam headlights or fog lamps if you have them. High beams will reflect off the moisture and impair your visibility.

  10. In heavy fog, slow down and crack your window to hear nearby traffic. Use painted road markings as a guide (if you have a passenger, ask him or her to help watch).

Ok, I can almost hear some of you saying: "Well, that's just common sense!"
