Shame on me


I recently received a email encouraging me to not accept the new $1 coin because it does not say "In God we Trust" and I passed it on without checking it out on "Snopes"........so I thought I would share the following information......

The new coin is not really a new coin but rather part of a series of Presidential coins that started in 1999 and the Presidential $1 coin act 2005 allowed "In God we Trust" to be printed on the edge of the coin


for larger more dramatic artwork.
Note to self: ALWAYS check it out before sending it on

Good advice! Your experience is the very reason, I don't forward things to those in my address box.

We all get caught. I try to always fact check first but sometimes the emails are so convincing and from people who I believe checked before they sent. WRONG. Guess we have to check EVERYTHING! Good reminder friend.

I agree with Granny Annie as I too often forward emails with hopes that someone other than me has checked the facts. My Cousin Rubber Corn Dog is quick to catch me and tell me to check it out. Ah but often I am in too big a hurry to do just that. Lazy me. Peace

So many things get passed along through e-mail. You just never know. Always good advice to double check things.
