It's been a while. I know. I am painfully aware. I started with a goal of posting every two weeks; then thought monthly would be okay. Now, I will just do my best (which is a good philosophy in most all aspects of life).
In the evolving spirit of the season, I thought Canada's plastic currency would be a good topic. The new bills are made from polypropylene and are expected to last 2.5 times longer than paper bills. Plus, the plastic bills are harder to counterfeit. Bonus! Detailed photos of the new bills are available here.
