Never Thought I'd See The Day...

...when I would exchange U.S. dollars into Canadian, and receive a smaller number back.

Hmph. This current parity of our dollars is good for me the Canadian consumer, but it really sucks for me the Canadian who runs a business dealing mostly in U.S. Currency.

Oh, well. Silver lining: the U.S. dollar's plunge in the market has inspired a rather larger number of non-American buyers lately. I guess it all evens out in the end.

Thank you, Lord, for my blessings. Let me dwell on those, instead of the drawbacks.

Thank you, Lord, for giving me a business I can run from the comfort of my own office chair.

Thank you, Lord, for a strong and thriving economy to live in.

Thank you, Lord, for teaching me how to be a good steward of what you have entrusted to me.

You rock.

As an afterthought to today's post, and on a completely unrelated topic, this is worth a read.

  1. The article you linked to is very thought provoking. It just seems so ridiculous to me, that anyone would consider ANY risk level to fetuses and babies to be acceptable! I guess it is up to the informed parent to just avoid any possible exposure at all!! And......the fact that fertility clinics were basically unheard of before we started using plastics.....why doesn't this ring a bell in the minds of the powers that be!!
    And....I join you in praising the Lord!! For He IS good!!

  2. Great article T! You hear rumors of these problems but it's good to see it in hard copy and sources to back up the research.

  3. Mom - The problem is, sometimes you don't know enough to even know how to become informed! When I think of things like the information brochure they hand you as you are sitting in the waiting room of the clinic before your child's vaccination to "inform" you about the vaccine, it just ticks me off. There is so little actual information in those things that it could be considered only a cursory nod towards their duty. The same could be said about plastics, I guess. The tough thing is, as the article says, plastic is everywhere--we can't get away from it by simply shopping differently. Our vegetables come bagged in plastic. There needs to be wide-scale change on the manufacturing side before this is going to turn around.

    Dawn - Glad it helped! Hope you are having a good week, friend!
