Penny’s Tips Volume 33

Hi everyone! Did you miss me? Happy Chinese New Year! It is the year of the pig.

  Do you know what you are? My mom is a rooster. If you don’t know what you are, click here.

Did you know that pennies in Bermuda used to have pigs on the back? My  mom has some old ones, she as never been to Bermuda, but someone her Gramma knew gave them to her when she was a kid ( a long time ago).

Penny’s Tips Volume 32

Hi everyone! I am here with a New Year’s tip for you. Another blog, SmartSchoolhouse, wrote about The Penny Challenge. She even has a cool free printable available. Click here.

You save pennies every day for a year. On day one, you save one, day two, you save two- you get the idea. By the end of the year, you will have $667.95! Unfortunately, I don’t know where to get that many pennies from. I think my folks will notice their missing change if I take that much.

Penny’s Tips Volume 30

Hi everyone! Is the Christmas season causing you stress?

The other day while researching pennies, I found a great penny meditation. Here is a link to it. It is on a religious website and I am not endorsing their beliefs, but the meditation is a nice way to relax. Click here.

Now I need to get this fat guy out of my box.

Penny’s Tips Volume 29

Hi everyone. Before I give you my tip, I want to give my condolences to Marg on the loss of her sweet boy, Lucky.

Sorry I look so sleepy. I am loving the heating pad.

My tip for today is to remind you that today is Giving Tuesday. You could donate your spare pennies ( or dollars) to a good cause today. We just made a donation to Marg’s Gofund me page in memory of Lucky. We don’t have much to donate, but every little bit helps.

Penny’s Tips Volume 28

Hi everyone! I have a great tip today just in time for your holiday baking.

You can use pennies as pie weights. My mom just learned what that is….every time she makes a crust for the chocolate cream pie, it has bubbles on the bottom. I hope she tries this.

 Sorry, I insist she give me my treats in advance.

You just put the pie crust in the bottom ( use your imagination, I didn’t have a crust for the photo).

Then you put parchment paper or aluminum foil over it and line it with pennies, then bake as usual. They will hold it down so it won’t bubble. I recommend washing the pennies first even though there is a layer protecting the crust.

Penny’s Tips Volume 27

Hi everyone! I am being difficult for mom, she wants me to pose, but I am sick of having my posts bumped.

I do have a tip for you though. You should always check for wheat pennies whenever you get change.The front is the same, but the backs have wheat stalks on the sides.  Did you know they are all worth more than 1 cent? They were made from 1909-1958. To see a chart with the value of each year, click here.

I have a 1957 one here, sorry for the bad photo.

It is worth 8 cents, I know that doesn’t sound like much, but it is worth 8 times the face value.

Before I go, I want to correct something. When mom wrote that Prancie’s Prayer is a bestseller for the publisher yesterday it just means for Mirror Publishing which is good, but nothing like a real bestseller on Amazon.  I bet if she wrote a book about me it would be a true bestseller.

Penny’s Tips Volume 25

HI everyone! I will let Penny give her tip in a minute. Today is the one year anniversary of Phoebe leaving us. We miss her every day, the house just isn’t the same without her. Her little harness dress still hangs on the hook by the door like Tiny Tim’s crutch.

I have been saving this story for today. Last year, when I kept bringing Phoebe to the vet for fluids and checkups, her vet was expecting a baby. Guess what she named her daughter? When I was there a few months ago she told me that when I kept coming in with Phoebe it struck her that should be her baby’s name.

Now time for Penny’s tip-

Hi everyone! Mom paid me in silvervine so excuse my pose, she caught me rolling in it.

My tip is if you don’t have a ruler, you can use pennies to measure. There are 16 pennies in one foot ( each one has a diameter of .75″ ).

Do you like Mom’s ruler? It is a Peanuts one that she has had since she was a kid.

Tomorrow we will be participating in Madi’s Come Laugh With Us Blog Hop.

Thank you to all who have helped promote by sharing, purchasing, reviewing and for all your kind comments of support.

Penny’s Tips Volume 24

Hi everyone!

We are joining Comedy Plus’ Happy Tuesday Blog Hop.

Did you miss me last week?

I have a great tip this week, but mean Mom wouldn’t listen to me when I offered it to her.

She made this lottery tree for a friend’s birthday party. She put a branch in a small glass bowl filled with sand. I suggested she fill the bowl with lucky pennies instead of sand, but she said the party had a beach theme. I think she was just too cheap to fill it with pennies.

Don’t you think my idea was better?

Before I go, I want to let  Bionic Basil’s family know we are praying for him and his family. He announced on Sunday that he doesn’t have long on this earth. We are very sad. To visit him, click here.

Penny’s Tips Volume 23

Hi everyone!  Here I am with another tip, next week, I get a vacation day because Mom is doing a Chewy review.

This tip is more for people with sticky little people to entertain, but anyone can do this. Tape some pennies ( not me) to the bottom of your shoes and tap away.

Here is a very short video of The Great One tapping away.
