My wife Colleen and I were married in 2000. Her grandmother used to own Ma Cole's dinner for all you old timers. And yes we met on the the radio. She was my first winner with Movie trivia 15 years ago. We have helped to for a new Theatre Company that raises money for charity. The Valparaiso Theatrical Company give 60% of every ticket sold back to a 501C3 charity. We have two sons and 4 grand children.
The next time you're holding a dollar bill, it might be worth looking further than the big number one - you could get more bang from your buck than you expected. Ordinary low denomination bills are raking in thousands of dollars in an online trend that is centered on the eight-digit serial number which appears on each U.S. banknote. “Unusual” bills are being bought, sold and hunted on the website CoolSerialNumbers.com, with low serial numbers, from 00000001 to 00000100, being particularly sought after, a $1 bill with the serial number 00000002 going for $2,500. The U.S.-based site lists all the different notes that collectors are looking out for and allows serial number fans to get in touch with one another. There are categories such as “solids” (where the digits repeat eight times), “ladders” (12345678), “radars” (01133110 - where the number reads the same left-to-right as right-to-left) and “repeaters” (20012001 - the second half is the same as the first half). Then there are “radar repeaters” (12211221), “super radars” (20000002 - all the internal digits are the same) and “super repeaters” (where the first two digits are repeated four times, such as 63636363). Dave Undis, the a Nashville musician and currency collector who runs the site, is happy to include some criteria that might go unnoticed to the untrained eye - such as a “pi note” with the number 31415927. A $5 bill with the number 33333333 is currently up for sale for $13,000, while a set of nine $20 bills running from 00000010 through to 00000090 can be bought for $1,800. A Google+ link on the site allows you to scroll through a full catalogue of unusual serial numbers.
