Well Bubba’s had it! He’s blown a fuse over Wally & Harry and doesn’t hold back. Of course he’s never had much of a problem sharing his views about these two yahoos. Please, when you read his rant understand that anti-detecting and collecting propagandists are not limited soley to the UK. They are here as well and we not only need to be vigilant, we need to be proactive, because unlike the overly vocal Barford & Swift comedy team, ‘our detractors’ here in the states are working quietly behind the scenes to cast us in a bad light.

BUBBA IN A BLAST FROM THE PAST!
Know he will be pissed at me for sharing this old photo but I don’t care…. Howland singled handedly crashed and smashed two double-deckers in a little over a month. It was then he took up detecting (and smashed two detectors in a week).
WHO NEED’S A CAMERA?
If you are movie buff I encourage you to see the movie “Nebraska“. Not only is it a terrific film, it includes my old friend Paul Tainter, of Treasure Expo and Exanimo Press fame. Yep, Paul and one of his pals were extras in the movie, which featured Bruce Dern, Stacy Ketch and June Squibb.
According to Paul he worked two ten hour days plus one 6 hour stint and enjoyed every minute. You will find Paul in the two or three bar scenes, and your best chance to see him will be when Stacey Ketch is standing, talking to a group at a table (Paul is seated at the front of the bar).
Paul said the interaction with director Alexander Payne and Bruce Dern was something he’ll never forget. Nebraska is up for five Oscar nominations..best picture, best actor (Bruce Dern), best supporting actress (June Squibb), best cinematography and best director (Alexander Payne). Not that anyone cares but I would have to rank it as one of the best movies I’ve ever seen.
AFTER MARKET COILS
Well thought sure I would get more feedback on this topic but nada. Apparently those who spent their hard earned cash on these coils love them to death (or too embarrassed to say otherwise).
ARKIE GUEST POST UP NEXT!
Not sure what to expect but archaeologist Lisa Hume MacIntyre is preparing another guest post for Stout Standards. Kinda scares the hell out of me but I promised her I would offer it up here as written. Thanks Lisa (I think)…
