The three largest U.S. airlines – American, Delta and United – have changed the way they price ‘multi-city trips’…that could end up costing you hundreds of extra dollars in airfare.  Airfares have gone up six or seven times the normal price.   TIP: To get the best prices, fliers stopping at two or more cities now need to book several individual tickets.  (Simple roundtrip tickets purchases won’t be affected).  http://goo.gl/yMRK8T

 

Eleven more cities including Charlotte and Raleigh have been added to Amazon’s free same day delivery for “Prime” members.  Here’s the deal: Prime members can place an order ($35 dollars or more) in the morning and have it before 9 p.m. the same day.    CNN Money

 

And the winning name is?  A High school baseball team has been giving naming rights for their coach’s baby after winning 14 games.  Here’s the deal: Coach Rob Querry promised his team the Heritage High School Panthers in Palm Bay, Florida, that they could name his unborn child IF they won 14 games. When Coach Rob proposed the deal, the team hadn’t won a single game. The Panthers were a long shot to achieve their goal…but win they did!!   The Panthers had their the first winning season in team history.   BTW: The team baby name choice?  “Benny Smalls” named after Scotty Smalls and Benny Rodriguez from the baseball classic movie The Sandlot.  “Baby Benny” is due in September. (Do you think that MOM knows about the deal???)    http://on.mash.to/1quiDxv

 

“…I had my first person call me ‘Jesus’ the other day.  I was in the hotel and there was a whole family.  They stopped and one of them is like ‘Are you Jesus?”  Cliff Curtis, the 47-year-old actor from New Zealand, who recently starred as Jesus in the movie “Risen”   http://goo.gl/Y9TH6R
