Penny’s Tips Volume 50

Hi everyone! It is that time of year when Mom tortures us, I mean lovingly dresses us in costumes for Halloween. Last year we were all characters from movies. This year, we are going to be from television shows. There will be a contest to see who can guess all the shows.

Do you have your costume yet? I have some ideas if you don’t. They all have a penny in them.

1. Penny from Big Bang Theory- just toss on a blonde wig.

2. Pennywise the Clown from It- Chewy has a costume available for that

3. Penny Dreadful- Go as a character from that show- I can’t believe anyone would put the word dreadful after my name though.

4. Coin- go as a real penny. Just be careful because everyone will try to pick you up for good luck.

5. Henny Penny- Dress as a chicken and run around telling everyone the sky is falling.

OK, that is all I’ve got- can you think of any pennies I missed?

Penny’s Tips Volume 49

Hi everyone! The Jewish day of atonement, Yom Kippur begins at sundown so I thought I would tell you a Jewish story. Don’t worry , there is a penny in it.

It is titled, The Rusty Penny by Tuvia Bolton .Many years ago ( the 17 or 1800’s), a rabbi was collecting money to help some Jewish prisoners. He went around with a group and asked everyone to donate. He went to a so-called miser’s home and asked him for a donation. The man gave him a rusty old penny which was considered an insult, but he accepted it and said thank you. A few minutes later, the miser offered him a lot more money which he also graciously accepted. Then the miser offered the entire amount needed. The rabbi later explained the man was not a miser, he had just never had the joy of giving because everyone else threw the rusty penny back in his face.

I may not have explained it that well, you can read the story by clicking here.

The point is, it is good to give and once you do, you will always want to. I am sure that is true, but I am s till not giving away the Kick Stick.

Penny’s Tips Volume 47

Hi everyone! Did you miss me last week?

  My tip today is more of a superstition. Did you know that if you give someone a gift of a purse or wallet that you are supposed to put money in it for good luck? I recommend you put a penny in because you already spent money on a gift so no need to give a larger amount.

Mom bought The Great One a unicorn purse last week when they went (pre)school clothes shopping, Mom put a penny in it and boy did The Great One get mad at her- she didn’t want a penny in her new purse, she had other things to put in it. She ended up giving the penny to her mom for doing a good workout 🙂

Penny’s Tips Volume 46

Hi everyone!   If you follow my tip today, you won’t need to have a fly swatter anymore.

Just take a ziplock bag and add water and at least 4 pennies ( not me).  Then you hang it above your door. Something about the flies complex eyes makes them move away because it magnifies the light entering their eyes. Too bad it doesn’t work on nasty mosquitoes.

Penny’s Tips Volume 45

Hi everyone! Apparently Mom got the hint when I left a plastic eyeball in her shoe. If I didn’t get to write my post today, it was going to be her eyeball in the shoe next time.

  I sent my mom outside to get me a slug and instead she comes in with all these peaches. I don’t have a tip for peaches-unless you make them into a pie then you may want my pie crust tip. Click here.

She isn’t too bright. She was digging for slugs until Dad explained those are grubs. Slugs are not in the ground. We don’t have any slugs around, but if you do, you can repel them with pennies. They need to be made before 1983 ( that counts me out) because it is the copper content in them that repels the slugs. You can read how to make a penny ball for your garden. Click here

See you next week!

Penny’s Tips Volume 44

Hi everyone! I wasn’t going to do a post today because I am still mad that I got bumped last week for the sock post. And that she didn’t have socks made with ME on them. But, I don’t want to disappoint my loyal fans.

My tip today is a game. You will need several pennies ( at least 10) with different dates on them. And you will need 2 of each date. Then you flip them all over so their tails are up. The first person to play will flip over 2 to see if they match, if not, you flip them back over and the next player does the same. If you get a match, you get to keep them and take another turn. Keep playing until all the pennies are matched. The winner is the one with the most pennies at the end.

This would be fun for older kids. It is also good for adults to keep those brain cells working.

Penny’s Tips Volume 43

Hi everyone! My mom told me to go fly a kite.

I had trouble making it balance so I added a penny to the  rear of the keel (the keel is the vertical piece of sail material beneath the kite to keep it stable).

Can you guess who is really going to fly this kite?

Penny’s Tips Volume 42- The Canadian Penny Edition

Hi everyone! I am going to tell you about some valuable Canadian Pennies today, but first I have a surprise for you. Mom asked her graphic designer friend to make me a badge and I want to share it with all my fans. Please feel free to display it on your sidebar. And if you need a graphic designer, we highly recommend him, click here.

Now on to those Canadian pennies. I know they are not in circulation anymore, but you may still have some around.   Did you know there is one worth $400,000? It is a 1936 “dot” penny. When King Edward VIII abdicated the throne and King George VI ascended there was no time to change the face on the coin so a tiny raised dot was placed under the coin date to denote those were struck in 1937, not 1936. If you find one, don’t forget who told you about it 🙂

I will fill you in on more valuable Canadian pennies in future editions.
