    Probably the main reason for keeping dollar bills here is because dollar coins would fall out of the strippers' thongs. And we can't put a coin in the slot...

    Those cracker Florida strippers are among the finest looking women in the nation. Too bad the pole's not a part of the Miss America or Universe contests...?

    The men who run the mint intentionally put those women - Sacagawea & Susan B. - on 'dollar' coins the size of a quarter to show how much they were valued. That's why those coin dollars fell out of favor.

    I got a silver dollar from the company for every patent approved. Those are massive coins with heft. Feels like real money. Like the JFK half-dollar.

    But the move from paper to digital (credit/debit cards) to crypto is getting to the nitty-gritty of what money really is. Viva Scrooge McDuck!

    Next problem with money in States. Nothing made in States, who makes the presses & will they give credit when current ones go tits up. Some crazy story on internet about IRS being out of ink or printers out of svc contracts, just crazy enough to ring true...

    No politician in the US wants to admit that the penny, nickel, dollar are not worth anything. Just keep printing/minting them and kick the can down the road. amazed at how easy it is in the US the last couple of years to use a card for about everything, starting with a $2 taco at Taco Bell. Saw parking meters in L. A. a few years ago that were rigged for credit cards.

    So the camp is open - It actually opened last weekend but a burst water pipe removed power and water from our site so we set up everything this weekend. It will be our last year at the park, probably putting the railer up for sale end July beginning August.

    We all stand at the driveway of each site and converse over the distance how our winters went.

    Just across the seasonal stream is (I think his name is)Oscar. Until yesterday we did not know he is an Electrician. Oscar and his wife would show up intermittantly over the past 3 seasons and ypically just spend the day and go home in the evening. Oscar was a heavy smoker though you could see from our limited interaction.

    He came to within talking distance and started to ask us how our vaccination was coming along. We said how we were still looking for the shot. He told us how his was to be next week and his wife had hers way back in Febuary as she works in a special needs home. Oscar then started talking on how a COVID test saved his lfe. Apparently in Febuary, before his wife got her shot, she was exposed to covid by 3 co workers so needed a tect. Because she needed a test he needed a test. Oscar has also had cronic pain in his neck and back for years and regullary took percosec (sp?) . Well the week prior to the COVID test he had some real sevear pain and poped some pills and it went away. Before the Covid test he had the presence of mind to mention this. Well they did blood work and found the markers for a recent heart attack. CT scans a couple hours later connfirmed he needed a tripple bypass.

    With all of the Covid crap he did have 3 hospital transfers for open ORs and ICU rooms, but end March the tore him open just to find he needed a quadruple bypass. He is all stitched up and now all tickity boo. Has not touched a smoke since and is now looking forward to spending more time living and less 12 hour days once he gats back to work - Maybe only 9 hour days

    Yeah, the world keeps going on. Neighbors just got back. they had left in a hurry because her son got shot. They are back, son doing ok but now has a plastic ear and unspecified wound to his groin. Sometimes you don't want all the details.

    Wife's boyfriend shot him, missed when the 3rd shot jammed probably because the DS was shooting from his sweatshirt pocket. Wifeypoo and bad boy on the lam. He had only been out of the can for 6 months. He served 10 years of a 45 year sentence because he was reformed, according to the Illinois Prison system which is so proud of how successful they are and such good judges of character.

    Neighbors' wanted custody of 9 year old grandkid but it has to go thru the legal mill before they can take her out of state.
    Lawyer wants to sue the state on contingency, she'll get her cut only if she wins.

    Gave me an opportunity to spout one of my favorite theories--that the US should have a quota system for executions like 10,000 a year, worst first. Neighbors agreed.

    Chilo got her call for Pfizer tomorrow.

    Dr asked if there are others in the household who have not had their shot - She nicly remembered me - I am in 20min after her now tomorrow.

    I think I will bring in a magnet and see if it sticks to the syringe

    The kids (well none of them are technically kids any longer) all said they would wait their turn and skipped for now.

    The people who did the crimes are the ones that did the ghastly things. Have a point system of 1-5 stars like Amazon and croak anybody who gets 5 stars. 10k x 10 years = 100k. We would be a better nation.

    PS: my religious preference is Exempt

    In my tests - No

    Test 1 - after about 40 min after injection - A hard drive magnet I had handy did not stick. This wa a megnet that I had handy and is over a half lb of weight.

    Test 2 - After about 1.5 hours - I found thos little begger Amazon magnets - They are about 1/3" round with a hole in the center and can hold a wrench on the ceiling of my shed - I had a few spares but had to hunt them down - They did not stick either.

    Asked a PhD (Physics) guy at work - After he stopped laughing at the premise and the ingenuity of my test (for a Peon) he mentioned that it was technically impossible to have 0.3ml of suspended , diluted, ferrous, metal hold any magnet in place external to the skin with the depth of injection.

    PS The shoulder did start to cross the irritation line to hurt around Midnight when I rolled over on it. Still smarts now

    So it looks like Jimmy Jr managed to catch his flight, had the correct tests and got on the plane, spent his night in SAL, caught his flight to Toronto and then ended up in the Hotel in Toronto for the 3 nights.

    I am not sure who is paying the Hotel, probably SIL Jenny (Gra'ma)

    Chilo made sure we were out of the house the day of his arrival so we would not be conscripted to drive. I think he can leave the hotel today if his test is clear today (PCR)

    Chilo just told me $300/day - Ouch - While all inclusive it is a pretty pissy all inclusive - Includes the ride from the airport to the hotel Whoppie..

    I thought it was $150/day.

    So just about 1000/CDN $750/US

    Kept reading it was pricey. That Hotel stay, flight, test, would have bought a lot of rice and beans back home......

    Box guy popped out of the wood work Sunday.

    There was a call to let us know of a Container heading down end June.

    Good thing I have an OSB box left from the last shipment - A little bigger that the 2x2x2, I think it was 4x3x2, but we should get it loaded quickly. If I were to duplicate that box today it would be over $100CDN compared to the probable $30 I spent in 2019.

    A nice middle 80's 10" grinder, a gawd awful heavy pig, is destined for the box.
