And they say nothing happens in Vermont!

Well, Norman Rockwell sure ain't here anymore! The police are concerned because a group of young scam artists are going house to house knocking. If nobody answers, they get in through a window and take whatever they can carry.
If someone answers, they offer to do yard work or chores for too high a price.  ;)  Last week there were several burglaries. There have been nearly 200 in the last year. Residents are urged to keep doors and windows always locked and report any suspicious activity to the police.

No, I did not report the egging of my front door to the police. We are working on another approach to that.



Why Is Money Green in the United States?


Money is green in the United States, it is believed, because that color of ink was the most readily available when the paper currency design was introduced in 1929.

Prior to then, paper currency mainly used black ink with colored elements, but counterfeiters were able to recreate the colored portions too easily.  ;D

Another possible reason green ink was chosen was because it is more able to withstand heat and chemical exposure without changing appearance. Green ink might also have been chosen for US money because the color green was viewed as a symbol of strength and stability in the government’s credit.  ;)


 More about money in the US:

•The $1 US Dollar (USD) bill lasts an average of just one year and 10 months in circulation. The $100 USD bill lasts about seven years and five months.

•Martha Washington is the only female to have her portrait appear on US currency. The wife of first US President George Washington appeared on the $1 USD Silver Certificates of 1886, 1891 and 1896.

•It would take about $2.5 million USD worth of pennies laid next to each other to reach across the width of the United States. ::)
