There is a really easy way to get a free doughnut on Election Day — just vote. Krispy Kreme will be giving a free doughnut to every person who shows up at a participating location wearing an “I Voted” sticker on Nov. 8. Voters can choose from any flavor.  That’s one way to sweeten Election Day. www.journalnow.com

It has been said that if you want to avoid heated debates, stay away from two topics – religion and politics. But this Election Day, a local church is putting both topics on the table in hopes to bring unity during a time when the country seems so divided.  At noon people can go to the church to participate in Election Day Communion.  Grace United Methodist Church and Centenary United Methodist Church both on W. Friendly Ave. in Greensboro. www.myfox8.com

Do you eat dinner parked in front of the TV?  Researchers say “Mindless eating” is more likely to occur during family meals when parked in front of the TV set. The new study recommends turning off the TV during meals to avoid overeating. Researchers say we’ll likely eat healthier and increase the opportunity for connection between family members. They say families should try to view the family meal as a family event rather than just a necessity.  https://goo.gl/AQKaox

Beware the scams and the scammers-  If you have had someone come to you home and stated you can vote via the computer in  their hands- you have been scammed.  There are 3 ways you can vote- You can vote absentee by mail, that ended last Tuesday.  Or you can vote in person in one-stop early voting, that ended Saturday.   The last is, a registered voter can show up today at their designated polling place and vote.  The polls open at 6:30 a.m. and close at 7:30 p.m.  www.journalnow.com

How many of us despise the new chip cards–  Millennials aren’t big fans of the new chip style credit cards. A recent survey says millennials aren’t the biggest fans of the new chip style.  Even though the cards are more secure and in general, most of us have accepted the new technology, but millennials say they’re frustrated with the longer wait time for a transaction to clear and confusion about when to use the technology. https://goo.gl/236EJ3
