Where's George?

I just got an e-mail from WheresGeorge.com letting me know that one of my bills got a hit. Where's George is a website where you can enter the serial number from U.S. dollars you have, and then after you spend it, if someone else enters that same bill, you can see how far your dollar has traveled by the city and state of the person who entered it. You also get points added to your "George score", which is also affected by how many bills you enter, how often you visit the site, etc. If that sounds fun to you (and why wouldn't it? Whaddya got a life or something?) check it out.

If you live north of the border, there's also a WheresLoonie website too, or some crazy thing like that. (It's actually WheresWilly.com, but I thought WheresLoonie sounded more Canandian.)

"WheresLoonie" does sound better, but there are no paper $1 or $2 bills in circulation in Canada anymore! So it wouldn't have made a whole-lot-a sense. "Willy" is Sir Wilfrid Laurier -- the first french prime-minister of Canada currently on the $5 note.

And I thought I already knew all that there is to know. Ha! Thanks for the info, Hank!
