On this day in 1976 – “Disco Duck” by Rick Dees and His Cast of Idiots received a gold record. The song became only the fourth single to be certified platinum in December of 1976.


Question of the Day:

Do you still use checks? What is on the background of yours?

    We only use checks to pay Kassie, our daycare provider. And we have pretty Disney Princesses on ours. 🙂 Tim looks really cool when he has to write Kassie a check. *wink*

    I write about 3 checks a month, and I have the plain old bank design that’s free. This customized checks can be hard for check scanners to read!

    We use them to pay our childcare provider, but I think that’s it. And, I know this will totally shock people, our background is…cats.

    I’m like the other parents here. I only use checks to pay my daycare provider, Verna. The background on my checks are the American flag with an eagle and the Statue of Liberty.

    I use checks for about half of my bills. Whether I write a check is based on how difficult they make it to pay online. I use the plain cheap standard bank checks.

    While I don’t have images on my checks, I do get interesting stamps. I like that it doesn’t matter what is on the stamp – all first class mail stamps cost the same. I have stamps with The Simpsons on them right now.

    I have polka dots and swirls on my spending account checks and Dr Seuss on my bill account checks…
    I write checks to the guy Dan hires to mow the lawn, and to the exterminator Dan hires to spray our house, or other random things like that. I also pay my “hippiopath” nutritionist and acupuncturist with checks when I buy my thyroid medicine or get a treatment.
    I only have a couple of books of the pretty ones left, and when they run out I’ll go for the freebie blanks from the bank.

    I still use checks to pay probably 1/4 of my bills. I had Wizard of Oz ones, but now I just use the plain cheap-o ones from the bank.
