Angel thanks for info about glass bottles. As for the price of gas, in Florida it went up about 45 cents since middle of January. Like we would not noticed. $ 3.89 last week.
I believe Canada stopped making pennies earlier this month. I will keep the ones I have to remind me of buying penny candy when I was a child spending my summers in Ontario.
bradjan, if they get rid of pennies, how will they keep increasing the sales tax? It is 6 cents in Indiana and once a tax goes up, it NEVER comes down! Politicians wouldn't dare increase sales taxes by 5%, or 5 cents at one time. They love their jobs, and like the power, or love the power and like the jobs. :-)))You are right about the taste of soft drinks being better in bottles. The reasons are that they can use more carbonization in bottles and the cans are lined with plastic, which gives an odd taste to the soda. A guy who worked for a bottling company told me about it.
They were still using them last october BJ, I had not heard they were getting rid of them, hopefully will be going back soon so will find out.
We were using nickels, now the US wants to get rids of pennies. I believe Canada has already done this.
Nice these old thinks
BJ hard for me to figure out, we were using pounds, shillings and pence in 1958 and I am thinking the equivalent for a bottle of coke would have been around 35 or 50 cents. I could be off by a few.
I do remember this thanks Jan for a great set...
Denise I remember them and they tasted better in bottles.Ron now a nickel does not buy anything today.Robbie So what was the lowest price you can remember for coke?
I don't remember anything costing 5 cents here BJ! When you live on an Island in the middle of the Atlantic everything costs double or more than in the States! Thanks.
I actually remember them
Lol. I cant believe the price:-))
