SeniorDiscounts Guide Book

SeniorDiscounts is making room for the release of the New 2007 SeniorDiscounts Guide Book.

Right now you can purchase the 2006 Edition for only $6.95. That even includes all shipping costs.

Until now, the SeniorDiscounts Guide Book has only been available to members of the SeniorDiscounts Card Program, which was provided as a benefit of Membership.

But right now, SeniorDiscounts needs to liquidate its current supply of the 2006 Guide Book.

The SeniorDiscounts Guide is a compilation of the over 125,000 discounts available on the SeniorDiscounts.com web site.

The Guide is designed for easy reference and provides our senior discount information to people without Internet Access. It is divided into two major sections, nationally available discounts and those discounts unique to each state.

The Guide Book can make a great addition to your library of discount information and can make a great gift for friends or family.

So get your SeniorDiscounts Guide Book while supplies last!

New Your City's New Year's Eve Ball Facts

The Ball is a geodesic sphere, six feet in diameter, and weighs approximately 1,070 pounds. It is covered with a total of 504 Waterford crystal triangles that vary in size and range in length from 4.75 inches to 5.75 inches per side.

For the 2007 New Year's Eve celebration, 72 of the crystal triangles feature the new "Hope for Peace" design, consisting of three dove-like patterns symbolizing messengers of peace.

The actual notion of a ball "dropping" to signal the passage of time dates back long before New Year's Eve was ever celebrated in Times Square. The first "time-ball" was installed atop England's Royal Observatory at Greenwich in 1833. This ball would drop at one o'clock every afternoon, allowing the captains of nearby ships to precisely set their chronometers (a vital navigational instrument).

 
     
 
 
 

Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each new year find you a better man. - Benjamin Franklin
