The best part is that many of these notes can be bought for less than a dollar.

Like stamps, a favorite way to collect foreign bank notes is by topic, such as collecting any picturing birds, fish or animals. And foreign bank notes are renowned for their artwork, which puts our currency to shame.

Written by Michael Feely Friday, September 12, 2014 11:26 am

BRIGANTINE–Gov. Chris Christie vetoed a bill Wednesday that would have banned smoking in public parks and limited smoking on public beaches. He announced the veto in a press release Wednesday night, pointing to numerous state municipalities that have already banned smoking in their parks and beaches.

“While I appreciate the (bill) sponsors’ concerns regarding the health risks poses by smoking and secondhand smoke, I am not persuaded that a prescriptive, ‘one size fits all’ state ban on smoking in public parks and beaches is advisable at this time” wrote the Governor.
