Free pancakes at IHOP Friday

Kids age 12 and under can enjoy a free Scary Face Pancake at area IHOP restaurants Friday October 29 from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.


The Scary Face Pancake is an oversized buttermilk pancake with a whipped topping mouth and strawberry nose, served with two mini OREO cookies and candy corn on the side which kids can use to finish decorating their creation.

Airlines are excited about new 23-inch seats. How about you?


If you thought space was tight on your last flight, wait until you see the latest "ultra high density" SkyRider seating designed by Italian company AvionInteriors.


The seats have passengers nearly standing upright, but tucked back into shallow, angled "saddle-type" seats. They take up 25 percent less room than traditional seating, meaning airlines can pack more seats--and more people--onto planes. As a result, passengers will have just seven inches of space between their face and the back of the seat in front of them.


The airlines promise the extra seating will help them cut costs, which will allow them to pass savings on to customers. How low would a ticket price have to be for you to sign on with an airline using the SkyRiders?
