Money money money money... MONEY!

Felted paper made from animal fibers was invented in China from in about 177 BC and less than 40 years after that the Chinese Emperor Wu-Ti (140-87 BC) began to issue the first monetary notes made from paper, /they were untended ony as a temporary subsitute for "real" money -- precious metals and coins -- when real money was in short supply. These first bills were more like cardboard than the foldable bills we use today.

And how to reduce your home heating costs. I'll probably be doing some of these. It's too expensive in this economy to keep my house as warm as I'd like.
