Last night Meg and Henry went west to visit some family. I stayed home and went to the movies with my Dad. We saw "The Hurt Locker". We both liked it quite a bit. It reminded me a bit of the old BBC show, "Danger UXB." I only wish one understood better how they were trying to defuse the bombs, but it's tough to get that across in two hours.

Afterwards I searched some pennies. I didn't find any Roman coins, but I did find one new US variety, the 1934D! Only 28 million of that one were minted. 10,000 pennies turned up fifty-one Wheats, fifty-eight Canadians, two US dimes and one Euro 2¢ (Italy, 2002). The Wheats were:

1914, 1929, 1930, 1934D, 1936, 1941(2), 1942(2), 1944(4), 1944S, 1945(2), 1946(3), 1947, 1948(2), 1950(2), 1951, 1951D, 1952D(4), 1953(3), 1956(3), 1956D(3), 1957, 1957D(6), 1958, 1958D(3)
