George in Orange?

June 27, 2006 @ 6:11 am | Filed under: Fun Learning Stuff

Jane heard from a friend that dollar bills were going to be printed in orange from now on. I didn’t think that sounded correct, so I suggested we look it u—

Look it up?” snorted Scott. Jane guffawed. Oh, sure, they mock me, but they love me.

Well, we did look it up (so there) and here’s what we found. As I thought, there are no plans in the works for orange smackeroos, but the U. S. Treasury’s Bureau of Engraving and Printing website offers a nifty interactive tour of the new and improved tens, twenties, and fifties.

  1. Thanks for the link! I received one of those new 10’s at the farmer’s market on Saturday and I thought it was fake! The vendor assured me that it was the new style and so I accepted it… but I did feel a little bit of hesitation when I handed it over at the next stall. They really are rather different looking – I wish I had been able to hold onto it a little longer so that I could have studied it more.

  2. Thanks for the link, Lissa. The kids enjoyed it.

  3. Thanks for the link. The kids and I enjoyed it.

    I’m famous for “look it up” around here, too. Just yesterday we were online to look up a recipe for bannocks (those Martha books make a person hungry ….)

  4. Thanks for the tip- we “looked it up” and enjoyed the post. Just this morning, we looked up a picture of a Bison, the kids wanted to know what they look like. Thank God for high speed internet!
