Thanks to All…

Just want to thank all of you who contributed to the MacIntyre situation.  I know they appreciate your generosity.  I want to remind you however that Ken’s treatment will be costly and the monies collected so far are just a drop in the bucket.  As a result I will continue to share the “Give Forward” link here on my blog and website.  If you have not contributed or not familiar with the situation please read my post of July 26th….

What Ken and his family are going through is heartbreaking and what the future holds is anyone’s guess.  What is certain is that the bills will continue to come in, and with this disease they can be overwhelming.  I hope you will continue to send your prayers, good vibes and thoughts their way.

I also want to say that we are not done helping out Ken, and in the coming weeks we will be holding an event to raise more money, thanks to all the manufacturers, magazines and other related groups.  It will be held in conjunction with a forthcoming American Digger Magazine’s Relic Roundup show, and it just might be a chance for you to finally own that detector you’ve been wishing for.   Stay tuned….more details to come.

In the meantime you can contribute and stay updated by clicking on this photo of a younger Ken….




Have not been out detecting in some time, and for a variety of reasons, but mainly due to the heat and humidity. There was a time when it wouldn’t have mattered, but that time has passed me by.  I find it easy to sweat, even when I am inside with AC.  Fay and I are constantly playing the thermostat game, but I am sure you all know it.  Wish I new what it was that makes women cold all the time.  Hmmm….that didn’t come out right did it? In any case, hoping against hope for rain and cooler temps.  In the meantime paint me a “wimp”.

My friend Scott Clark was a recent contributor to a blog titled A Day of Archaeology 2013 Scott is an extremely knowledgeable guy, and as I’ve said in the past, would be an extremely valuable asset to any of the three national organizations out there.  Hope you will take the time to read his article HERE

Scott also has a terrifc blog/website called Detecting US, and if you are smart you will add it to your favorites. Lots of good information.



Looks like the Cook County (Illinois) situation is looking better. At least the folks in charge have agreed to sit down and hear the detectorist’s point of view.  For more info please check out the Task Force’s website HERE
