This morning DH woke me up and gave me a five dollar bill stamped in red with "Currency Tracking Project." I never knew such a thing existed, but I get happy and excited over little stuff. I went to the Where Is George website and registered, then entered the serial number from my bill. The person started the tracking in SC (just one state away) and it took 224 days, 17 hours, and 32 minutes before I logged it in on their website. It traveled 44 miles in this time. I have always been fascinated by the migration of money. Now I can find out how far this bill goes after I spend it, if anyone logs it in on the website. How neat! They have the same project in Canda, though it's called Where is Willy.
