A favorite FB page of mine is Detecting History and the founder, Stan Shoemaker recently posted the following….
“I’ve been watching many detecting videos over the last few days and I can honestly say 90% of the folks making them wouldn’t cut the mustard on my crew. I’ve noticed they dig gigantic holes, sling earth wildly like animals, not picking up their trash, making fun of the land owners on camera, I’d be sending them home early”…….
I agree wholeheartedly with Stan so please, all you Rick Savage wannabes, shape up. I know you love your hobby and your new camera but please, please don’t screw it up for everyone. Take your time, learn how to recover a find and THEN show off your movie making skills. Stardom will wait for you trust me…
Thanks from all of us…
QUIET TIME HERE…BUT NOT WITH THE BUBBA FROM BOURNEMOUTH!
Not a lot going on here with yours truly…cold and rainy weekend and in somewhat of a funk lately. On the other hand my beer guzzlin’ pal from the UK has a follow-up to his last update, and I am once again featuring it here as well as in the Malamute Saloon. John has a way with words and if I could write half as good as he I would run for office!
Please read, digest what he has to say and always remember that we have much right to history as anyone one else, no matter their background or education, or if we are talking about the gentleman from Warsaw, pedigree….
Two men are approaching each other on a sidewalk. Both are dragging their right foot as they walk. As they meet, one man looks at the other knowingly, points to his foot and says, “Vietnam, 1969.” The other points his thumb behind him and says, “Dog crap, 20 feet back.”

I’ll see you in the bar….
