John Howland is somewhat pissed in that I didn’t go “tits up” and he will not be receiving any of my detectors, but he did take the time to send along an update. His latest offering has a little of everything…..wishes for the new year, more insults for his friend in Warsaw, and a bashing of one Simon Thurley, chief executive of English Heritage. Add in Prince Charles, and he’s covered all the bases.

ELEANOR HUBE….STILL GOING STRONG
Every so often I get an email from my good friend Eleanor Hube, reminding me that when it comes to metal detecting she still kicks my butt, and most everyone else’s too. I once wrote an article for Western and Eastern Treasures about Eleanor titled “Eleanor Hube….One of the Grand Dames of Metal Detecting” (check out the articles link on my website), and at the time I thought that just perhaps Eleanor was going to retire. She was having a couple of medical issues, and wasn’t sure how much more she’d be able to get out in the field.
That was years ago, and today she is still in the field, still finding treasure and still returning rings….What a gal!! If any of you are ever in her neck of the woods please be sure to stop in at her shop and say hello. J&E Enterprises has been around a long time, and it’s for a reason. Great service, great prices and a willingness to share years of experience. To me Eleanor was, is and will always be “the” Grand Dame of our pastime. Happy New Year Eleanor!!
