What happened to cash is king? I don't see a bright future for hard cold cash... not long ago it would have been unthinkable for a business to deny cash payments. Many self-serve checkouts don't allow you to use "CASH" as payment for groceries. I got a disappointed look from the store manager the other day when I missed his handwritten sign stating that they didn't accept cash... I inserted the cash.  No Sale.. No Acceptance. The manager typed in a code.... the machine spit the cash back out.   I had to choose other payment option.   I should have chosen another store, but then they are all like this now.

A very Happy New Year to all The first thing I notice about the new date is how much easier it is to type than 2019. It's a good start to a brand new decade. Thank you for this past years' correspondence on DeviantArt. I find this forum to be consistently one of the best art social media forums online. I look forward to hearing from you soon. Greg
