I didn't get my coupon for the free Dr Pepper because the internet was not working. Now I guess I'm not a Pepper.

I don't drink a lot of pop. (my kids went to college and learned to call it "soda")  I have it once in a while but I mostly drink a couple of cups of coffee and lots of water.  But I do like a Diet Dr Pepper once in a while. (And I never ran for vice president).

I received the news that Dr Pepper was given a coupon for a free soft drink if I logged in to their site on Sunday.  Well, that was not true .  I tried several times during the day and I could not get through.  I watched the evening news and the local TV station was not able.  I logged in again about 11 pm when everyone else should have been in bed.  No Luck!

This mornin (Monday) I check in and was excited because they had extended the offer until 5 pm (my time) this evening.  Again, no luck!

I just checked in again and they didn't extend the offer even thought I still couldn't get registered.  I don't know if I can drink their product again in good faith. 

Then I began to think as a preacher.  Sometimes I do that well.  I am thankful that God's grace is not that difficult to receive.  Sometimes our churches seem to make it that hard but God doesn't.  I'm so thankful God doesn't take advice from Dr Pepper!

Larry, I was surprised to learn [From you] that Dr. Pepper is still made...I tried it oncce, way back when my son was still in high school. I did not care for it, but I take your point in your article and do think you are right.

Cheers,
Dan

That's a good story. Interesting point.

Dear brother Larry, forget Dr.Pepper (how many bottles I drank in the forties and fifties?) switch to Coors, you will be right all the time!LOL
