BTN {Five Dollar Note}

Most of us spend money every day, and it’s a big part of Australia. But the reserve bank of Australia thinks these pieces of plastic got a makeover, with the five dollar note first. The new features it has is the security window goes through the middle and they have a picture of the Eastern Spine bill and the Prickly Moses Wattle.

another thing the designers had to think about was the security. This is because lots of people would like to print out their own money. That’s why theses days we don’t have paper notes, we have plastic ones. on the old note’s they had a window so you could see through the note, a star which can only be visible when held in the light and also small words which can only be seen with magnifying glass. Now, the designers are upping the security, things like the bigger windows, the five, that changes directions when you tilt it. and the Eastern Spine bills wings which also changes when you tilt it. The last thing that is different on the new five dollar note is it now has a bump so blind people can feel it and tell the difference between the notes.

100WC {special writing prompt} #2

I woke up in fright, my eyes slowly opened and i got a good view of what was around me. This place was definitely not my bedroom, it felt magical. The air smelt great, the sun was setting and it was the perfect temperature, not too hot and not too cold. I look into the distance and see something moving. It walking towards me, its a wolf! At first I wanted to run, by it within 5 meters of me and didn’t strike. The wolf casually steps up to me and licks my hand. everything suddenly goes into a spin and I wake. I feel my dog buster licking my hand.
