thank you, Father Guido. 35cents, good to know. just a guess (and I’m not judging) but I think I know a few people that must have a pretty big coin jar. not me, of course. I don’t even know what Father Guido is talking about. my ‘big bad’ lately is not updating this blog. Sinful, I know. but, here’s why…
