WHERE'S GEORGE? is the fun, fascinating, and educational website where people can keep track of those globetrotting gents named George, Andrew, Abe and Ulysses and the rest of their Currency Commrades.
You have just bought a burger and fries at some fast food joint, bought a lotto ticket, or paid some street corner floozy for a midni, um, forget that last, you get my drift, I'm sure.
Have you ever wondered where those bills have been, or where they will go next?
Well, George seems to have spent a day or 2 playing the slots, and the cards at Pechanga Casino, in Temecula, Ca. ;-D
My 2nd hit of the month! (Read about the 1st, here.)
I got this particular dollar bill on Saturday morning, in Santa Ana, and spent it the next morning, in Orange.
3 days later the bill has traveled into Riverside County, for a Gambling Weekend, then headed over to Los Angeles County, where it was reported in from Glendora, yesterday morning:
I got this bill as change from buying dinner for my friend and I at Pechanga while he was busy playing poker. Those tacos were pretty good. Poker wasn't so good!
Technically the bill travelled only 26 miles, from the where it was registered by me, to where it was next reported, but obviously it traveled considerably farther inbetween. ;-D
For anyone who wonders just how many folks are doing this in Orange County, here are some stats to chew on:
Orange County is the 4th busiest county in the state behind Los Angeles, Santa Clara, and San Diego.
TOTAL BILLS ENTERED = 890,803
UNIQUE BILLS = 887,571
TOTAL HITS = 187,324
NUMBER OF BILLS ENTERED IN THE COUNTY THAT HAVE BEEN HIT = 85,171
Of the 58 counties in the state, the 3 with the least interested in Georging citizenry are:
TRINITY = 1,901 TOTAL BILLS (1,866 UNIQUE) (Bills entered in that county that have been hit = 238)
SIERRA = 787 TOTAL BILLS (778 UNIQUE) (Bills entered in that county that have been hit = 86)
ALPINE = 565 TOTAL BILLS (560 UNIQUE) (Bills entered in that county that have been hit = 61)
