Goodbye Penny

Penny The federal budget was today (March 29, 2011).  Most of the time I don’t pay much attention to this kind of thing.  A bunch of talking heads going on and on.  But one thing stood out to me.  They are getting rid of the penny.  The plan is to phase them out this coming fall.  Which means the mint will stop sending them out.  You might be thinking what I was thinking.  What about the ones we all have laying around.  Well they will be still accepted every were.  They are still legal tender.  You call read more about this > here.  So goodbye penny.  I am sure there will be many happy to see you go.
