Is there an “official” code of ethics?

As I read a few club newsletters I also read the code of ethics as they interpret them. There have been a few interesting twists on them over the  years, and I wish I could remember the really unique one I posted here over the years, but I could not find it. I will keep looking…. I did save the  following one for posterity. It was written by the late Jim Lewellen, president and CEO of Fisher Laboratories. Continue reading

Whoa….wait a minute.

I find it amusing that a few of my books are selling online for ridiculous sums. Books that are still available and easy to order from numerous sources.  Every once in a while I will scan the internet to see if there are companies offering any of my titles….almost always Continue reading

Moving on…..

I must apologize for spending so much time responding to the Warsaw windbag. Sorry… Reading his blog makes my blood boil, and it’s difficult staying  silent. That is over with, and I am moving on…… Continue reading

Playing games…

Well, this morning I did not notice Mr. Barford’s link to my response, and announced such here.  Then, a short time later I did,  and took down my post….my apologies to Mr. Barford and my readers.

_____________________________________________________________

In any event Mr. Barford has seen fit to take down the entire back and forth and commented via email:

Hmm, I think the blog’s comment procedure has its on and off days. I actually did answer that this morning  but then I hid it again, it being just the same old boring stuff (I thought you saw it, you logged on while it was at the top of the page). I really do not feel the need to continually justify why I blog.

I’ve shifted the text to my “metal detectorists ghetto blog” which is currently offline but may be made visible one day when tekkies annoy me sufficiently. Mr Howland and your new pal Steve Taylor both have a few mentions in the latter”.

Mr. Barford, why did you leave up “Response to Criticism from Warsaw” yet take down the latest? Just curious…. Was it “boring” because it didn’t flatter you, or was it that you just don’t like to share such common sense letters on your blog?

So, that’s where things stand, and for the record,  I too have a few things  that may be made visable one day when the likes of Mr. Barford and Mr. Swift annoy me sufficiently.

Dear Mr. Barford….

Not sure if any of you have been following this ongoing battle of words, but I have responded to Mr. Barford’s latest comments (which, if you are interested, you can read here). It will surely mean another anti-detecting  tome from him, but I intend to ignore him for a while. It’s so tiresome pissing in the wind…. Continue reading

Response to criticism from Warsaw…

Apparently my recent posts have hit a nerve, as in Paul Barford’s  response to them (scroll down or simply search my name). Read his most recent garbge, and take from it whatever you care. It’s obvious his anger, his hatred for anyone not an  archaeologist, but again, you can make your own decision…. Continue reading
