Take A Penny -- Leave A Penny

Canada will no longer be minting pennies. Apparently it costs more to make them than they are worth. From now on if we are making a cash transaction the total will be rounded off. If the amount is $1.23 it will be rounded down to $1.20, and if it's $1.48 it will be rounded up to $1.50.  I don't think I will really miss them. But I will miss saying, "See a penny pick it up, then all day you'll have good luck."

Your comments are valued. I read every one of them. (In fact I often go back and reread them.) They really do make my day! Thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to write to me.
