I’ve known for a while now that my dear friend Alan Holcombe, Whites Corporate Manager, was about to retire. Now that it’s official, I can share my feelings and they are both happy and sad. I say that because I have been privileged to know and work with Alan and I will miss him. I also know that he has more than earned the right to finally take it easy. Continue reading
Every day I read a couple of twopenny, odorous archaeological blogs that never fail to give me a chuckle. That’s because these particular bloggers live and die to insult and belittle the detectorist/collector and stop at nothing to accomplish it. Lying, embellishing, misleading and making up their own facts and figures are just part of who they are. Continue reading
Over the past few months I’ve looked at the number of visitors to my site and which particular posts attracted the most. Not surprisingly they were the ones that had lots of photos & videos and where I use terms like “the best”, “how to” and “where to”….a.k.a. top-secret revelations.

As you know one of my favorite blogs is that of my good friend John Winter. John and I could almost be brothers given the things we have in common, such as age, intelligence and good looks. I know, I know…you are envious but hang in there. As you age you too will join our ranks (well maybe not the good looks thing). Continue reading
My brother Phil and I….
Well, after all my years of traveling I finally got to visit Denver, Colorado and while it was only for a long weekend it was packed with fun. A big reason for that of course was seeing family members, especially my brother Phil, whom I haven’t seen in three years. He’s currently in an assisted living situation there, getting his jollies hitting on all the young females who work there. Continue reading
I learned about “time in grade” when I was in the Army back in the 60’s and it came to mind today as I was putting this post together. For those of you who are not familiar with this term….. Continue reading
YEP, THE CELLAR GUYS AGAIN
As I scan the various treasure hunting websites, blogs and FB pages I am always drawn to and impressed by two individuals in particular. Todd Hiltz and Dave Wise. Continue reading
