Not Your Great, Great, Great, GREAT Grandfather’s Wishing Well!

This truly is a “sign of the times” . . . a wishing well in England recently switched to “contactless payments”, meaning you can’t toss coins in anymore. It’s part of an old Roman bath house that’s 2,000 years old. Officials say they did it because the coins were damaging the bath structure, AND the process of retrieving and cleaning the coins wasn’t cheap. But donations have plummeted, falling from $133,000 a year to under $14,000 after the change. C’mon man, there’s GOT to be a better solution!                     (Here’s a photo of it before the coin ban, and here’s the sign they put up about contactless payments)
