Yeah America, Drink Up!

The American dollar has edged up against the Canadian dollar and is now worth a penny more than the loonie. The Canadian dollar had reached parity with the $U.S. in September for the first time since 1976 and had remained strong over the past couple months.

Today is also the 75th anniversary of the repealing of prohibition.

After 13 long years, the shinny new 21st ammendment, repealing the 18th ammendment, had enough states behind it to be ratified on December 5th, 1933. The issue of alcohol would be taken out of the hands of the federal government and left to each state's counties to decide locally.

Toast the $ with a frosty one!
