The Gold and Silver Mine- The Euro makes sense The Gold and Silver Mine- The Euro makes sense During a recent trip to Europe I had the experience of using the Euro coin, that is the common currency in use through the 28 member countries known as the European Union and currently valued at around $1.30 per Euro. I’ve written before about how the Euro utilizes coins from the 1 cent size through the 2 Euro size and then paper from 5 Euros up, resulting in a substantial savings by not printing 1 and 2 Euros in paper. There are higher denomination Euro coins, 5 Euros, 10 Euros and up, but these are typically what is known as non-circulating legal tender because they are not intended for use as money and they are minted in limited quantities for collectors and sometimes are minted in silver or gold.

Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults is the process by which people wishing to either become Catholics or return to the Catholic Church are instructed in the tenets of the Faith. The initial stage is an inquiry period, a time to ask questions and resolve issues.  Advanced instruction takes place after the inquiry period and culminates in the acceptance into the church and the reception of the sacraments during the Easter vigil of 2015.

Some of the pots are surrounded by five or six inches of sand. All the signs have been collected; we seem to have lost only one. Please clean out your pot of all plants no later than Oct. 6. We will be storing the pots at the community center for the winter. Pot tenders, thank you for adopting your pot to water. Again I received several compliments today as I was working up there. They were enjoyed by many.
