I am happy to report that one of my two-dollar bills was given out as change at McDonalds the other day. This means progress. It’s hard to tell what kind of progress because I don’t usually hang around to see how the next person gets their change, not to mention that the next person doesn’t always use cash. I am noticing that fewer places are putting them under the tray. This means that they’re at least keeping them on standby.

I also ordered another stamp from It seems like I get a stamp every time I need to order ink pads. I figure a few years from now, I’ll have them all. I definitely recommend them if you need to buy stamps, especially acrylic stamps.

I got two hits, here and here that will be (or was) used in a vending machine at Barry University, which is about a mile from where I live. It’s hard to think that two bills stayed together for almost 500 days and they’re still so close from where they were entered. This is why I’d like to see my bills entered more often. I’m assuming that since there are two bills that they were sitting in a bank somewhere, but for all I know, they made it around the world twice before making it back to Barry University.

I have a coworker that thinks it’s good that my bills end up at the bank. This is why it’s not good. I want my bills out and about and going places. They can’t do that if they’re sitting in a vault somewhere. Take a look at this bill, which ended up in Richmond, VA. Yes, it took a while, but I’ll bet it didn’t see the inside of a bank.

In other good news, I got Hawaii county bingo, but it’s an easy bingo of sorts. I should probably update the County Bingo Wiki. There’s one county that seems to be in dispute as to whether or not it’s a county. It’s called Kalawao County and doesn’t have a government, but does apparently have a sheriff. If you read the Wikipedia article, it’s kind of interesting. It’s also apparently difficult to get a hit there.

That’s all I have to report now. I’m sure I’ll think of something later.
