Checking the money twice

For some time now, we in Canada have had to deal with a set of new currency. That is, our bank notes are now of a different texture and feel and we need to be more careful each time we handle these notes.

For the most part, these notes have been received quite well. There are Braille dots on the notes to help a blind person decipher them. The notes are made of a plastic-like fabric so that they last longer and are more durable. The notes have different colors but for me that does not help as my vision is not good enough to help me.

However, here is the drawback for me. The notes often stick to each other so that when I go to remove them from my wallet, I have to make doubly sure that I am only withdrawing what I need. The notes are a bit slippery when placed against each other so it takes a bit of getting used to. This is why I have to check my money at least twice each time I handle it.

This is a personal message from author Donna Jodhan
"Each time we raise our voice at someone else we are engaging in bullying! Each time we raise our hands to slap or punch someone else we are also engaging in bullying and each time we engage in actions to either manipulate or force someone else to do what we want we are also engaging in bullying!

There is no room in this world for bullying and each day we fail to take action against bullying it is another day that we allow others to bully us and our kids. Our heroes and role models are the ones who have made us proud; those brave young men and women who gave their lives for us in past wars and those who continue to do so. They are not the ones who choose to be racists and those who believe that their bad behaviour in public is acceptable.

I write and record audio mysteries that are being used at such events as murder mystery evenings as well as at public awareness and team building events. I promote understanding, tolerance, and problem solving and my audio mysteries continue to be broadcasted around the world and you can listen to them anywhere! On the plane or train! In the car or right there in your home! On your i device or computer!

Please join my campaign against bullying (CAB) by supporting my efforts to keep on writing and recording!
If you truly care then you will certainly dare!"
