SPEAKING OF JOHN WINTER…
My wannabe look-alike John Winter recently put up a post that I wanted to share here. It’s about a British tekkie who exemplifies the best of who we are and how we help the local community. Thank you Keith Dodds and thank you John for sharing this….
As of October 1st I will no longer be sharing links on the various metal detecting Facebook pages. Hope you will add your email address here where it says “Follow Blog via Email” (left column)…..
