So with the new federal budget the Canadian government decided that the penny is useless and that the Royal Canadian Mint will stop producing pennies.  Hence the “a nickel for your thoughts” edition, because pretty soon, there won’t be any more pennies!

In addition, the federal government plans to cut a lot of public sector jobs and increase the age of OAS payments from 65 to 67.  I think there are probably going to be a lot of pissed off seniors out there!

Short rambling for me today but I hope y’all enjoy your weekend!  Anything planned?  I might watch Hunger Games this weekend- anyone seen it yet? Good or bad?
