Interesting about our money....

Since the founding of the United States, the US Treasure Department has printed 6 denominations of paper currency for general circulation that have been larger in value than the $20 bill. There was 1 additional bill printed valued at $100,000 that was not for general circulation. This was used for exchanges between banks and for other governmental purposes but not for the general public usage.
The denominations that have been printed that are larger than the $20 bill are; $50, $100, $500 (William McKinley)

, $1,000 (Grover Cleveland)

, $5,000 (James Madison)

and the $10,000. The four larger denominations were discontinued by executive order of President Nixon.
The Federal Reserve began taking high-denomination currency out of circulation (destroying large bills received by banks) in 1969, after an executive order by President Nixon. As of May 30, 2009, only 336 - $10,000 bills were known to exist; 342 remaining $5,000 bills; and 165,372 remaining $1,000 bills. Due to their rarity, collectors often pay considerably more than the face value of the bills to acquire them. Some are in museums in other parts of the world.

On 3-15-19 I posted a recipe for Mini Chicken Pot Pies.
To view the recipe go to the list of blogs on the left and click on the arrow by the date and then click on the blog subjects. My high school pal, Nancy (Kujala) made them for a group (senior center? I forget, Nancy!) and they were a hit. This is what Nancy wrote:
"So, the mini chicken pot pie's were a hit...came out good, cooked them little longer and then took out and put some cheese on top and back in for a minute to melt...really good, pretty easy except had to work the biscuits for awhile to get them large enough, they were like elastic and wanted to pull back to smaller size.. fun dish to make for a crowd, easy to eat too...and so good!!"
Thanks Nancy! xo
All I know. Nuff said. Happy Tuesday. Ciao.

National Certified Nurses Day is observed every March 19th.   Every day lives are effected because of the care of certified nurses.  
Certified nurses dedicate their entire careers to helping others and often work long hard hours. National Certified Nurses Day honors and recognizes them and their significant achievements. Their advanced skills require continuing education, re-certification, and continued knowledge of every changing technology. Certified nurses balance clinical needs and patient care. Helping patients meet their healthcare goals in complex and challenging times makes a Certified Nurse’s commitment even more valuable.
