    How much is 75¢ Canadian as compared to U.S. cash?

    re: temple sud

    It was worth around 67 cents in 2008. Today it’s about one for one. Our currency took a crash when the Fed started playing games.

    In June of this year, when we went to Canada on vacation, the exchange rate was approx. $1.00 American for $1.23 Canadian. BTW, the ‘new’ Canadian plastic bills are ‘different’. I brought a bunch home to show people and give to my grandchildren. Even like the ‘scent ’o bills’ on the 100’s and 500’s! (Smells like maple sugar/candy!)

    The new bills are a pain. They stick together, aren’t accepted in vending machines and where did you get a 500? I’ve only seen 100s and 20s. They’ve just issued the 10s and 5s, so they’re not in full circulation.

    We don’t like them either. I wonder who came up with that ridiculous idea. It was hard enough for me to get used to loonies and toonies.

    I feel like Jane Jetson when I push those buttons and my machines do the work.

    If I was the washing machine, I wouldn’t pay much for Ellie’s stinky old socks either.

    I thought only very light items ever got left in pockets.

    My son-in-law has left enough coins to require dryer repair, plus a wallet, numerous money-type bills, driver license, passport, nuts and bolts, and car keys (they made a racket!).

    Re: New Canadian Money
    What I’d like to know is who the genius was that decided we needed plastic bills that will melt in the dryer if left in pockets or in a hot car.

    Depends how many pockets you have. Not checking the lower pockets on cargo pants cost me my last cell phone.

    My husband has a serious sinus problem. Nose runs almost constantly. Just went to the Allergist last week, who said he not allergic to anything. But 10 years ago, he was allergic to just about everything that grows. (Different allergist did the test, this time.)

    Oh, why am I boring you with all this? My beloved washes clothes often and forgets to take the tissues out of his pockets first.

    I’ve almost broke him of that: got him some “Nose Rags” (hankerchiefs), nice pile of them and they wash
    ever so much easier!
    even when they get washed with the jeans.

    Yeah, he’s has different meds, now. Sometimes they work.
