For whatever reason I have lots of visitors to both my website and my blog, but find that hardly any of you care to comment on either. Not sure if it’s shyness, a reluctance to argue a point or that Stout Standards is just one of those places to check out, and then move on….
I really thought that Mark Schuessler’s letter might evoke more responses, especially from current FMDAC members, but that did not happen. Likewise I thought Scott Clark’s interesting response would raise a few eyebrows, but that was not to be either….
I can track my visitors by town or locaton, have a pretty good idea of who you are and wonder what is it that I can do to get you to participate?
What you read here is pretty much the same thing that I put on my website. Why have both? Because the website has been up for close to three years, and I do not want to lose the information, photos, articles, etc.. It’s been a lot of work, a lot of fun, and it’s my “baby”, lousy code and all….
I hope that those of you who visit here will find the time to respond when something is of interest to you. You can do that by clicking on the comments section (Leave a Reply). Don’t be afraid to share your thoughts, or tell me to piss off when I have something that annoys. That’s the main purpose of this blog…..
SPANISH COIN MISSING
Interesting article from Eddy Current. Eddy has become a source of information lately, and shames me in that he finds articles from here in the states that escape my notice. Thanks Eddy…appreciate it.
JOEY ORTEGA AND HIS LATEST VIDEO
My friend from back East Joey Ortega has a knack of putting together a treaure hunting video, and this is his latest. Never thought I would see the day when a camera on your head would be a prerequisite for metal detecting, but then what the hell do I know? In any case, thanks Joey for putting this out there. Some nice finds (hope you spring a leak in your waders next time out!)

ANOTHER VIEW OF “THE DIGGERS SHOW”
Someone sent this to me, and I have forgotten who. I apologize profusely. I always like to credit those who contribute, but my mind is blank. Hoping whoever it was will forgive me….
FEBRUARY NOT SHAPING UP AS PLANNED….
February’s detecting schedule is not looking all that encouraging. The weather is great, and ideal for it, but so far on my calendar is a stress test next week, and after that something called an ABI and Sonogram. Likewise I added another damn pill to my collection in the hopes that I can fix a new problem. I have long wondered if the pills themselves might my problem, but the docs and my wife have pretty much told me that all my body parts would fall off instantly if I stopped taking them….
As Garrison Keillor once said “I’m so old that whenever I eat out they ask me for money upfront!
So, to all my friends who are out detecting, finding neat things….may you find nothing but pulltabs, and if you are in the water (Brian, Joey), may you find shit loads of sinkers!
