Unfortunately the only exciting things going on with this over-the-hill tekkie are trips to the doctor and dentist. The doc is still trying to figure out what’s wrong with me (aside from being a pain in the ass) and the dentist doesn’t really care. He’s just happy taking my money. Then again if I was feeling fine I’d still be in the house because it’s too damn hot to be outside. So der ya go!
I did come across a few recent items and thought I would pass them along in case you haven’t seen them…
BOY FINDS 10,000 YEAR OLD ARROWHEAD
I thought this was pretty damn cool, especially because it happened in New Jersey. No detector needed on this one…
INTERESTING TAKE ON STONEHENGE
Even though I have detected here numerous times I still found the following article fascinating. Maybe I need to go back and give it another go?
AND THEY BITCH ABOUT US?
The following news release is about a planned development here in my neck of the woods and it caught my attention because nowhere could I find any mention of archaeological surveys or concern. Now I understand that this sort of thing goes on all the time here in the good ole US of A, but why does a builder get the go ahead to plow, dig up and build on 196 acres of farmland (see page 3) yet we are banned from detecting 2 or 3 acres of park land and chastised if we detected the aforementioned farmland for relics. Just don’t get it anymore….sorry.
And a bird’s eye view…
CAPTAIN KIDD AND THE GARDEN STATE
Thanks to Jessie Thompson for making me aware of the following article.
