A LITTLE ADVERTISING NEVER HURTS
Hope by now you are all familiar with the website Detecting Diva. If not check it out. I know the Diva, a.k.a. Detectorista, and she is one very good treasure hunter. She puts many of the guys out there to shame, and will rub it in if she gets the chance.

MORE CLUB NEWSLETTERS
Passing on a few more newsletters that I found interesting and well done. If you are following the Cook County situation, there’s additional information in the Midwest Historical Research Society’s latest.

I usually share my website and blog updates on a few Facebook related sites, as well as a couple of forums. As a result a couple of individuals noticed the “Ceritification” program on the updated Task Force site, and commented as follows “I’ve got mine (printed certificate)” and the other, “now I can dig anywhere”.
