Did I mention something about the lack of sugar in my diet? Well, not today, apparently:

case - I think you've been influenced by Razz's commute picture.

kerosene 09-10-2007 12:26 PM

Inspired! Now I want to take a picture of everything!

*chuckles* alas I haven't any decent photos of it. I am not sure who the reporters were at Barnsley, I don't know what papers serve their area as it's a different part of Yorkshire.
I do have a really crappy little shot of the Halifax workers and staff (and me) holding up banners outside the Halifax factory after our return from Barnsley. It's from my local paper, but it only mentions 'councillors' being present to offer support rather than mentioning me by name.

I'm the chick at the back in a short-sleeved brown blouse. We're all looking really cross because the photographer thought we really ought to be looking upset...prior to that everyone was smiling:P

Somebody turned in some coins to the bank today...
Lowe's got some change from the bank...
A cashier needed change...
I walked in at the exact right moment...

How cool are these!?

The oldest one is 1918 and the newest is 1945. $2.80 worth, I let some of the other girls buy some out of the drawer too, I'm not greedy. :D

That's cool. When I worked the register at a corner store years ago, some teenager came in to spend his coin collection. I asked him three times if he really wanted to do it, and he kinda shrugged his shoulders and say yes each time. I got two rolls of wheat back pennies and a couple steel pennies. And a bunch of old dimes. Pretty cool when that happens.

Yeah, but realistically, they're not worth more than their face value. How long can you hold onto collections like that before they're not interesting to you anymore? Case in point, what did you do with the coins, glatt?

Look there's Dana!!! Dana makin' me proud..... Was that just one day or are you going back on the tour? I bet there were 10 times more people than that photo would indicate too. Seems to be a bad habit amongst journalists.

I used to wear a mask..... Then just sunglasses and a smile. Nothing makes me happier than going to B***'* house to bitch. Hard not to smile...I was caught on film in a stupid sun-hat, sunglasses, and a shit-eating grin.

They are in a little jewelry box thing on my dresser. The wheat back pennies are nothing special, but I also got some half dollars, I think, that were old and all silver. But yeah, they have no real value. Every once in awhile I'll get them out and look at them.

glatt 09-11-2007 11:00 AM

Just out of curiosity, I Googled the value of wheat back pennies. According to this link, an all copper penny (they were copper if they were minted before 1982) has three cents worth of copper in it, so they are rapidly disappearing as people melt them down for the metal. So if I sort through my pennies and melt down the copper and sell it to a metal dealer, I'll get three cents a penny.

A wheat back penny is worth 3.5 cents minimum if sold to a coin dealer. Rare ones can be worth hundreds of dollars.

A little after the time, but I lost one of my cats on Saturday, but got him back on Monday.

I've been taking them out on walks for the last 6 weeks, to prepare them for when my housemate came back and got them chipped. He wants them to be indoor/ outdoor cats and as he's taken all three of us on I can't really argue.

On Saturday there was an altercation between Diz and Trifle (HM's cat) in the doorway. While I was sorting that out Dylan decided to head right - towards the main road. I've never taken them in that direction and before I could catch him he was under a gate and into a locked yard full of grass, equipment and other catly delights. So I ran back in and got some food, then spent the next 30 mins lying on the floor, looking under the gate and making enticing cat noises. A neighbour got me access to the yard about an hour later, but he wasn't in there. So I spent the next 20 hours or so searching the streets, calling, calling, calling.

My HM got home mid-afternoon Sunday and by a lucky chance bumped into a boy who asked him if he was looking for a cat. His family took a cat in on Saturday night as they recognised him as a breed and figured he wasn't supposed to be out. They even got a friend to take their dog for the night so he wouldn't be scared. On Sunday they took him to a vet - who we were able to email and who called us Monday morning to confirm receipt.

HM picked him up while I was in counselling, apparently he'd been having a rare old time with everyone making a fuss of him and nicknaming him Posh.

Tomorrow we go to the vet. Diz & Dylan both get chipped and get collars. I'm not a fan of collars on cats as they leave an ugly mark and can be a choking risk, but Dylan is too friendly for his own good. He was lucky to be looked after as well as he was - people need to know he's a loved cat and not a runaway if it happens again.

It's awful when they disappear like that, isn't it? At least you know where Dylan's been - mine occasionally go walkabout and I have no idea why or where to ...

My Madison got out of my ex'es house and hasn't been seen in about a month. :(
