1.)     The official release of the Starbucks’ Pumpkin Spice Latte is Tuesday, September 2nd.     But, if you can’t wait, you can order one today … but only if you have the secret passcode.     The secret passcode can only be found on Starbucks’ Tumblr page.   When you get to that page, enter the word “scarf” in the blocks and you’ll receive the code to provide your barista, and be one of the first to buy a Pumpkin Spice Latte at Starbucks.
2.)     If you’ve thought twice about dating a nice guy because he’s shorter than you, perhaps you should reconsider.    A new study from New York University found that shorter men tend to marry later.    But, they make more money while they are in that relationship and shorter men also divorce less then their taller counterparts.

3.)     You could win Taco Bell for Life.    Yesterday, in promotion of its new dollar menu, Taco Bell started a “Find the Everlasting Dollar” contest.   Each day, the fast food chain will release a dollar bill in one of 11 cities.   The first dollar bill was released in Los Angeles.  The serial number of each bill is posted on their web site.    Find the bill with the matching serial number and you win a lifetime of food from Taco Bell.   What that means is you’ll receive $10,000 in Taco Bell gift cards, based on an average consumption of $216 dollars per year for 46 years.
