Waiter, there’s a fly on your tip.

A guy on Listia.com is sending me this mint 50 Stolinov coin that features a large housefly. I think a Stolinov is their version of a penny, because 100 Stolinov= 1 Tolar. Also, I overheard one Slovenian ask another, “Stolinov for your thoughts?”

They are on the Euro now anyway. I looked it up just now, it’s a spectacular country, especially if you like castles and caves.

This coin will be handy here in the states for tipping bad service; I always tip about 20% because the servers might have hungry babies. But the coin would make my point?

Mystery of Buddha

I got this “lucky Buddha coin” from some dude on Listia, it’s kind of cool, but such a dark patina that it’s hard to see. I don’t think much luck is getting through.

Teresa had some red goop “jewelry cleaner”, but as you see, it had no effect. Maybe it doesn’t work on brass. I have an ultrasonic cleaner in the garage but it’s too cold to fool around out there this time of night. So stay tuned.
