Wrapped up some pennies today..

Wrapped up some pennies today, what I think will be the last time I do so... Then I began to think, do any of these things have value?  I counted from 2011 to 1964 in a straight line, the pennies that I had amassed. I had a few in the 50s, and a very rare few in the 40s... Nothing after that..

I went on the page, on coins and Canada-  http://www.coinsandcanada.com/coins-prices.php

There, I seen a 1955 penny at a value of 600 dollars, for a special type. I do not have that penny, darn the luck. All the pennies upward into the mid 60s, can fetch sometimes for a dollar or so. 25 coin pieces from the 60s could earn you 5 bucks a pop...

And then there are those who look for the date when they stopped putting real copper in the pennies. Copper maybe worth more than the penny, itself... The melt value could be double, of that of the penny. It is said that in 1996 the Canadian government stopped using copper in their pennies http://o.canada.com/news/national/gaining-currency-one-cent-coin-gets-some-new-uses-but-you-cant-melt-it-down/. In the USA, the date was 1982- http://coins.about.com/od/uscoins/f/copper_to_zinc.htm.

So, go through your pennies... Check the dates... And to make bricks of copper? Of course, the law, far as I know so far, does not allow for the melt down of pennies.. But, a person must think that over time, as the years go by, they could be worth something as they become rarer and rarer..

No news on the book front... Till next time..

My Dog has ate a Ferrero Rocher.

I had only went into a store to buy a few Ferrero Rocher packages of chocolates... Then, I went into the next store, not realizing that I left the small, 3 chocolates per package, delicious Rochers in my middle vehicle organizer. On the way back, I did not even notice.

I had got out of my vehicle, and only when I went to search for something on that side, it all came together. The package was torn, with only one individually wrapped Ferro Rocher out of its packaging. She had selected one, and even tore the golden foil paper from the once existing Rocher Chocolate.

I looked over at my Dog. This was a little too much for me to handle. I yelled "Pushkin! You ate one of my Ferrero Rocher!"  Is she the only dog in the world that probably ate a Ferrero Rocher.

Good point in standing, she actually thought the process through. She did not destroy the three chocolates in the package, all in one bite. She used her incisors, exactly as a surgeon would, to take apart the package from t…

The Self Publishing 12 days of Christmas for 95 % of us...

What does Christmas mean for the majority of us self published authors. I think of the 12 days of self publishing... Scrooge approved.

1. The usual "Gesh, I didn't know you wrote a book! Where did you find time for that" from festive long lost friends or relatives.

2. When your manly friends tell you "Oh, I did'nt have time to read your books, but my wife read it and she sure likes it... But she likes just about anything she reads"

3. Where can I get a copy of that. I don't got a credit card so I can't order it online... Do you got any free copies...

4. The wife tells you "Why are you spending so much time on that thing. You got wood to split!"

5. Your son tells you "You should have put more pictures in that novel, dad. Maybe then I would have read it"

6. Your local library tells you "Oh, what a cute little book... We will put it way up there on the top shelf where it will keep the dust from falling on the traditional books"
