on my blog, this rather long posting:

3/27/19: Two cents, common sense, incemse, and peppermints:


some discussion in there of the 
two cents / (one's) two cents" / two cents' worth / put my two cents in 
idiom family, whose origins seem to be obscure, so maybe the hounds of ADS-L would be interested.

there's a whole lot of other stuff in there too, not especially ADS-L fodder.
