Happy Birthday George?
Yeah it’s a weird one isn’t it? How would you like to have one birthday then all of the sudden you have a different one!
George Washington was actually born on February 11, 1732, however, in 1752 the American colonies switched from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar. The switch involved shifting dates by 11 days. Thus George Washington subsequently celebrated his birthday on February 22!
Can you just imagine how weird that would have been? So you go to bed one night and wake up and its 11 days later! That's what I call a long night! LOL!
I have to add here about currency and how notes look... this is a one dollar bill I have they probably look different now with the big face thing they have going on but this is what they looked like when I was there! One, five, ten, twenty, fifty and one hundred dollar notes. And you all have to agree they all look exactly the same! The last time we went to the US I was so confused! I swear! I didn’t know how much money we had! Had I really had to pay close attention to what I was handing over! I have family in Canada and they would always complain when they visited about the money and how easy is was to confuse a one for a twenty! I thought they were just picky but I was wrong! They were right!
I love the Euro! It’s great! A blind person would know just how much money they had! We have five, ten, twenty, fifty, one hundred, two hundred and five hundred notes. And the really cool part is they range in sizes from smallest, a fiver, to the biggest, five hundred, something like a small blanket! And the colours are different too! Great idea and great money! No confusion here! Canada has pretty money and the Swiss Franc is very bright and colourful too! The Pound Sterling is a bit confusing as there are about five different banks that issue different notes! But I'm getting the hang of it pretty well too!
Just watching the news, the Egyptian president stepped down. I am very happy that the people of Egypt have a victory. I'm so very sad that any person had to lose their life but I am relieved and hope there is no more violence.
I have decided to do a Project 365! Here is just a bit of info behind every pic.
I have an Etsy shop now! Check it out here!!!!
