    Yes, our little water hole just outside my office window regularly brings in dozens of quail, coyotes, bobcats, deer, dove, a huge red racer snake, hawks, many different smaller birds, cottontails, jackrabbits, 3 different roadrunners and now the javalina...The show goes on all day long, every day....Fun! Cheers, Unc

    Yep, Fred...I've never seen so much discussion about a suppository! Cheers, Unc

    I learned not to feed the critters because that brings in extra rats and that brings in the rattlers in numbers...Cheers, Unc

    Birdshot to the VLF prospector is like pull-tabs to the jewelry/coin hunters

    I'd watch your back Rocky. Bob's named your stone and thinks it's a girl. He's getting a little over protective if you know what I mean. Now he's made up some story about how he won't be around because he's bowing fish for a few days. I'm thinking Bob might just show up in your neck of the woods looking for "his precious". Just a heads up.

    Back In Church Leroy gioes to church on Sunday morning, gets in line, and when it's his turn, the preacher asks: 'Leroy, what do you want me to pray about for you?' Leroy replies: 'Preacher, I need you to pray for my hearing.' The preacher puts one finger in Leroy's ear, and he places the other hand on top of Leros head, lifts his eyes and head to the Heavens and prays and prays and prays. After a few minutes, the preacher removes his hands, stands back and asks Leroy: 'Leroy, how is your hearing now?' Leroy says, 'I don't know, Reverend, it ain't until next Wednesday.'

    These guys were in our back yard at the waterhole we maintain for the critters that live with us...Seems like the really good gold areas attract the Javalinas.... Cheers Unc

    Probably would see a lot more if you had a night vision camera...or one of those cameras like Adam has that triggers when there is movement. Just dont set it so sensitive that you have 5000 pics of quail. I know a guy that did that Tom H.

    Pretty much spot on with that statement! Tom H.

    In an area where terrestrial rocks are hardly found you are batting a thousand. Congrats! An audience is what you desired and exactly what you got. So what more do you want? If you are searching for someone who actually thinks these are meteorites you probably need to keep looking. Otherwise we can pretend some more. I am down with whatever game you want to play.

    Bob, You may have started a bidding war on rare African Leaverites...... It is great to have you back on your game! Your wit and wisdom have been missed here. Have another beer and write on! Jeff

    Your immense knowledge will protect you from meteroite thieves. Only you can know the true meteroites. To all others they appear to be normal earthly rocks. This is proof of your special skills and knowledge. Fools only see what they want to see. I have learned so much about partial fusion crust and soft iron sulphides from your posts. I cannot thank you enough for showing me the truth about these meteroites! Please be careful Jimale! Wise men like you are so often misunderstood. Your complete ignorance on the subject is so much more valuable than any scientific fact or logical observation. It is almost like knowledge just comes to you from thin air. A sure sign of a very stable genius Jimale!

    This video caught my attention, this guy does awesome artwork using gunpowder and thusly fire, hope ya'll enjoy this as much as I did!!

    That is cool and didn't realize it was done that easily! This process reminds me of using electrolysis for cleaning coins/jewelry/relics which has to be done VERY CAREFULLY...just don't ask me how I know :>((

    Ok Dave I'll get back to edged weapons. here is the tomahawk Im working on. this is a brass steel forge with a pipe bowl. the wood is walnut. the black pen marks are layout marks for brass or wood hand file work and tacks. like I said before Its going to look a lot different when its done.

    Thing is, I am good at finding both, bird shot and pull tabs , I am even good for bottle caps and bullets too.

    I am waiting on hats and when I pick them up next week I will find out, I think if Creations in Thread has no issues we will offer long and short with or without pocket. I think they will mix an order since they are just adding the logo....

    Alien Tracking Probe. Inserted in certain Orpheus of dinosaurs for Tracking purposes. Don't go near a Microwave Oven with it. BAD Ju Ju.

    Thanks Fred! I missed your intelligent and logical banter as well. It is always a pleasure! This is the same old road we travel every single time we see metal flecks in a matrix. There are only three options and two are very rare and highly unlikely. Even if we find nickel we have not eliminated any options. Most artifacts are going to have nickel. We can only eliminate the possibility of a meteorite if we don't have nickel. So it is quite the conundrum. That red dot and the composition of the matrix will tell more about the provenance of this item than the presence (or not) of nickel IMHO. I think that dot is the ceramic flux on one of those high tech incendiary weld connections. No matter what this thing is or isn't I think we can easily rule out anything from space or from the earth. We can rule out meteorites with that funky red dot. We can rule out earth with those groovy metal flakes. That leaves us with a far out artifact. Just exactly where we have always wound up every time we have ever gone down this road. The shape and finish indicates tumbling by a mechanical and probably not natural means. A sandy beach does not provide enough weathering and abrasion to keep iron flecks bright on the surface in a coastal environment. The shape and finish strongly suggest that this item has been mechanically tumbled and the unoxidized flecks suggest that it was fairly recent. That puts a little more distance between this spotted rascal and a space rock. And supports the theory it is an artifact. IMHO the only exercise here is to find out what kind of slag it is and what it was rolling around in that shaped and smoothed it. At least that is where my observation and logic is taking me. I honestly do not see any indication that it could be any other way. I don't see where streak, fracture, hardness or any other test (besides bulk density) would offer any useful info on identifying this rock. With the meager information we have we can rule out almost every other possibility. Looking for silica, ceramics, products of combustion and other metals specific to welding processes would be the shortest route to identification. Using the XRF you could probably prove it is slag a lot easier than you could prove it was not a meteorite. Use that XRF to look for stuff that slag has and meteorites don't and I bet it is a short trip. Not trying to be a huge dick and monopolize the conversation. Just trying to spur a little thought on the processes of identification. Hopefully it is not to heavy for all you hip and groovy cats.

    Thanks Jeff! Leaverite is a terrestrial rock. The term "fecolite" is the proper term for space rocks that turn out to be sh!t. Some have partial fusion crust and others have soft iron sulphide inclusions. Many are obviously volcanic extrusives that look exactly like unetched iron "meteroites". Any stone with a corner broken off is also classified as a fecolite. They are often oriented with the blunt end forward and tapered at the rear due to the fact that fecolites come straight outta Uranus at cosmic speeds. The rocks in this post are genuine fecolites. A wise investor would snap them up for their collection before the Bedouins get their hands on them and sell them to the middlemen.
