Two names familiar to those of us with Cold War and foreign policy backgrounds, both dying on the 25th of February: Marshal of the Soviet Union Dmitri Yazov, last Minister of Defense of the USSR, and Egyptian President Hosni Mubarak, successor to Anwar Sadat.

Already loaded up on that with a few CVS coupons and specials.  I don't know if you noticed, but CVS seems to give out a lot of coupons when you shop there.

We’re pretty much Wegmans, Walmart and Costco shoppers. But we did get the Walgreens Medicare prescription plan. ;)

You mean as you have to stand there waiting each time at checkout for reams of paper?

I just leave it in the printer for someone else. It’s never a coupon for something I’d buy.
