Welcome to September!

Welcome back to the work week y'all! The best thing about a shortened work week is this: It's going to feel like a day off all week. That'll be great though on Friday!  Hope you enjoyed your weekend.

So today, you can help out a good cause and maybe even score a free T-shirt. The Student Nurse Association of Blue Ridge Community and Technical College is hosting a blood drive from 11:30-5:30 on Tuesday September 4 in the 3rd floor nursing lab. Be a hero, save a life. All who donate will receive a free tshirt!


I received an e-mail from Paranormal Patrol.  They are
a group that investigates reports of Paranormal activity, is looking for families to find the most haunted houses in West Virginia. Recently Paranormal Patrol was contacted by A&E TV to team up with them to find the most haunted house in WV to air in their TV series "THE HAUNTING". They are looking for families of 4 or more, with at least two teenagers to early 20's who have experienced paranormal activity. Due to the large production crew, they are looking for houses versus condos, apartments or townhouses. For more information visit ParanormalPatrol.com. For more info call Robin at (304) 279-8837.


Also, I saw this on another site about Shepherd University. Don't know if it's true or not but it is creepy! Click here for the story (it's #9).


 


When is the last time you have seen a $2 bill? They usually end up being tucked away in secret hiding places as souvenirs or used as birthday and Christmas gifts for kids. LenPenzo.com listed some facts you probably didn’t know about $2 bills:

    Although Thomas Jefferson has been featured on the $2 bill since 1869, it was Alexander Hamilton’s portrait that originally graced the front of the bill when it was introduced in 1862.

    Jefferson’s home, Monticello, was first featured on the bill’s reverse side in 1929. The Monticello gift shop reportedly now gives them out as change to encourage their circulation.

    In 1925, the U.S. government tried – unsuccessfully – to increase the popularity of the $2 bill by placing one in federal employee pay envelopes.

    After years of public indifference to the $2 bill, production was finally discontinued in 1966, only to be restarted as part of the American Bicentennial celebration in 1976.

    The revised $2 bill from 1976 replaced the Monticello with a depiction of John Trumbull’s painting, “Declaration of Independence.”

    People looking to create a money-making collectible had the new $2 bills postmarked by the U.S. Post Office on their first day of issue (April 13, 1976). However, so many of them did so that, even today, there are enough postmarked bills floating around to ensure they don’t command much above the $2 bill’s face value.

    As a general rule of thumb, if a $2 bill has a red Treasury seal and serial numbers, it’s at least somewhat-valuable. If the bill has a green Treasury seal and serial numbers, then it’s probably not worth more than face value.

    $2 bills are seen in circulation so rarely that some people still think they’re counterfeit upon first encountering them.

    In 2005, a Baltimore man was arrested and held in custody until Secret Service agents could verify that the 57 $2 bills he used to pay Best Buy for installing a radio-CD player in his son’s car were genuine.

    As late as the turn of the 21st century, there were more than $1.1 billion worth of the bills in circulation.

    The U.S. Bureau of Engraving and Printing continues to print $2 bills, including 230 million of them in 2006. Even so, $2 bills make up just 1% of all U.S. bills in circulation.

    Strip clubs reportedly include $2 bills in their customers’ change whenever possible to help increase tip income for their dancers.

Here's the Wikipedia page for $2.00 Bills
