Feedback on our March 2022 Issue

from our neighbor on Sailfish, Walt Heinzer:

I enjoyed the March Issue of the Bowfin Inquirer.

The loose change resonated with me having done the same in my teenage years. Now all I have are partially filled blue coin books made by Whitman Coin Folders. Also got active again with state quarters, circa 2000.

I’ve also collected coins & tokens in all shapes from all over the world during extensive business travel.

I so agree with Gary Colman’s commentary on US currencies being unfriendly to blind people. I have a similar observation of the CA Wine industry not offering more info on their labels. Spanish wines include raised braille on reverse label. And don’t get me going on lack of info about appellation, grapes and food pairing which is always present in EU wines. Only requirement enforced by ATF is the percent of alcohol. And hazard pregnancy warning.

Last of all really found Aaron’s Eye Glasses history eye opening. I think next step is to take this subject to more up to date vision correction techniques (lasers, lens replacement), and the ever present aging issue of cataracts which will afflict almost all people, if they live long enough.
