"Feasting makes you happy and wine cheers you up, but you can't have either without money"so says the Good News Bible. At the current cost of copper it costs the government twice as much or more to make a penny. so the USMint changed it to a zinc composition. Not worth much in today's economy, and as Realtors we don't deal in cents but if you were typing a report or something and needed the cent symbol, would you know where to find it on you key board?
As I sat down to take a load off, I saw on television how to find the symbol on your keyboard, and thought it a good thing to share it with you. Hold down the ALT key and on you numeric key pad type 0162. In case you should ever need to use the symbol that's the way to type it.
Share this new found discovery with your kids or the little people in your family. Ask them if they know how to make the ¢ symbol. It will cheer you up and make you happy to see the smile on their face when they discover something new.
