Currently I'm in Queensland.   Stateside, you have the "Deep South".  Here, it's the Deep North!
No DST here, because it fades the curtains and stops the cows from milking.   What will they think

I'm starting to be sorry I started all of this.  All I wanted to do was remind people the sprint time has not changed due to DST, as long as you use your normal clock, not UTC.

A little bit of history: Time zones were invented around 1883, in response to the increasing popularity of train travel.  Before then, noon local time in each town was when the sun was the highest in the sky.  You could use your sundial (on a sunny day) and determine pretty accurately when it was noon.  The only problem was, for example, noon in Kansas City didn't occur at the same instant as noon in St. Louis.  When train travel became popular, people wanted to know when the train would arrive so they wouldn't miss it.  The poor conductor had to reset his watch at virtually every stop.  So congress created time zones and the rest of the world soon followed suit. 

Final reminder:  The SSS is coming this Sunday.  I won't even attempt to remind you of the time (hi)!

$2.00 Bills

Stephen Myers
 

I am down here in Panama and when someone request a QSL card, they usually put money in it to cover the cost of postage. On two different occasions, I have rec $2.00 bills. I have them taped to my computer here in the "shack". I often wonder what the clerk would do if I tried to "pass" them! As I am not fluent in Spanish, I would have a hard time trying to explain my way out of the situation.

Re: $2.00 Bills

Jim Pruitt
 

I was in our local Fred Meyer (Kroger) store last week.  The older lady clerk commented to me that she had kept an old style $20 bill in her register for some time and decided to get rid of it.  She said she handed it to a younger (20 maybe) kid.  She said the customer came unglued and accused her or intentionally handing out counterfeit money!  She called her manager over who also tried to explain to the kid that it was in fact real money, just older but he refused to accept it and said he was going to report them to the police!

I am not a coin collector but suspect the old style $20 is worth more than $20 (maybe not much but still worth more to a collector).  I suspect the same thing would happen if someone these days received a 1943 penny (you know,  the ones that were not made out of copper but were made out of tin or something).  I will bet it will get thrown away like a Canadian penny would here since banks won't take them (at least most banks here won't accept Canadian coins or money).

Thank you.

This is a little different but my wife had a video showing two young people trying to use a rotary dial phone. We older people would really enjoy the things they went through trying to use the phone they comments from them were great. 
It’s sad with all the research available that some people just don’t get 2.00 bills zinc pennies rotary phones stuff I took for granted growing up

$2 bills is real money.

I used to keep a lot of them when I was driving because my turnpike toll one way to work was $2.55  so I would wrap a 50 cent piece and a nickel into a folded triangle made of  a $2 bill and hand it to the toll booth guy and drive off with him thinking I short changed him every time.    He would look at one paper bill and two coins and be pretty certain that could not be $2.55 and he would hit the alarm bell.... the one that said ...we get to chase you for skipping the toll.


I would also use the $2 bills to tip the waitress at the Chinese buffet.

And of course she would run around showing everybody in the kitchen the fake money someone passed her....

and then the owners approached me and scolded me for fake money.

It took a while but they figured it out.

The 1943 steel pennies are worth about a dollar each in very good condition

If you find a 1943 copper penny,  they are worth well over 100,000 dollars.

Re: $2.00 Bills

For many years now my b-i-l gives each of us two $2 bills as part of our
Christmas gifts. Over the years we've spent them at various places. So
far no one has questioned them.

Part of the reason the Susan B. Anthony dollar coins failed was that
they were too close in size to quarters. The machines would reject them
when the customer would try to use one in place of a quarter, and few
machines were set up to handle them even when the price of the product
was more than a dollar. The new generation of machines accept bills and
can even give change, so there is little need for the dollar coins.

Yes, I do still have some silver dollars.

You can still buy uncut 2.00 bills from the treasury I would give them to grandkids for birthdays Christmas. You can get them framed as well as various amounts.
I don’t think the kids have cut them up yet.
