"Mom - is the five hundred dollar bill still made? What's the largest bill?"
We found out the $100,000 bill is the largest made - but it's not for public use. It is used only by Federal Reserve Banks between branches.
We had an interesting conversation about making money -as in making counterfeit money- and about how it will get you time in The Big House :) and how even though it would be the downfall of the economy -maybe- I'm (personally) not so certain if it would be a horrid idea if we all worked on a trade/barter system and did away with money (or made our own currency)....
"Mom... have you heard of a state called Wisconsin?"
We checked out US Mints...
"So there's one in California, New York, Colorado, Philadelphia...." read aloud his Mama...
"Philadelphia! That's where Benjamin Franklin was." said Little Son. No, I didn't know.
"Mom... when is hog-branding time?"
I couldn't find relative information... if you know the answer to this, please let us know! :)
Oh, yes. I did them twice today, thankyouverymuch. grr.
Because I accidently ordered the premiere version when I only needed the deluxe version and I refused to pay the extra twenty bucks when I didn't need it and stupid program wouldn't let me downgrade... had to make up a new user name and then couldn't download my past year's into it.... hmmph! I want the last two hours of my life back....
When I was finally back with the living....
"Hey Mom.... do you know any pet stores in Seattle that sell ostriches?"
It's just been that kind of day, today, I guess.
More Kid K'nex.
More Pixos. Or whatever they're called.
Who knows! It's early yet....
