FRECKLES' PICK - WINNER
Today Is Free Cone Day At Haagen Dazs
Looking for a reason to smile today? It’s Free Cone Day at Häagen-Dazs shops! So stop in and grab a scoop on the house at your local store. It’s only a “kiddie scoop” but who cares, it’s free and it’s ice cream – what’s not to love!?
They let you choose your ice cream or sorbet and you can get it in a cup, sugar cone or cake cone. The free scoops are being offered from 4pm until 8pm today. And you can find your local shop with the Häagen-Dazs store locator.
But Free Cone Day isn’t just about making customers happy. It’s also supposed to spread awareness about the disappearing honeybee population. So the ice cream company is encouraging us to plant native, bee-friendly wildflowers in their towns. They’re not giving the seeds away themselves, but they’ll be asking customers to check out native plants using The Xerces Society website. And that’s a small price to pay for a free cone!

MORE AND MORE GUYS ARE HOOKING UP WITH COUGARS
Over the weekend, France elected a new president – 39-year-old Emmanuel Macron. And, one fun fact about this guy … he’s married to a 64-year-old.
Scientists have seen this younger-man-older-woman trend gain momentum through the years, especially since more and more families have been pulling in double incomes.
Because women have more economic power, younger guys are looking for women who either make as much money as they do or more, and have similar or higher levels of education.
So while it still might look weird to many people, it’s definitely more common than ever. (New York Times)
