Canada is Penniless

http://news.nationalpost.com/2013/02/04/canadian-penny-last-day/

For those in the US who don't know, today marks the last day of the penny here in Canada, so from now on anyone wanting to offer their 2 cents on the blog will have to do so by electronic payment or round up to 5 cents.  I can't say as I'll miss the useless pennies weighing down my coat pockets, but I do find it weird that my daughter won't ever really know what a penny was. 
Farewell, one cent!
