    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 am impressed that little Lizzie knows her letters and knows how to check the labels on clothes. That’s not bad for a 4-year-old.

    I guess the lesson of this comic strip is:
    -
    a. Check the labels on the clothes before you wash them to make sure you don’t wash dry clean.
    -
    b. Check the pockets of the clothes before you wash them. But if you don’t, it’s not terrible if you missed change in a pocket.
    -
    c. Use a sock clip or a safety pin to put your socks together so you don’t lose them in the washer or in the dryer.

    I think the only standard laundry faux pas she didn’t hit was washing red clothing with white clothing.

    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.
