    RD exactly my thoughts but the only problem is it's state land and illegal to run a disc over it. Only thing that could help a little is lightening. We had some good lightening about 0330 today but also some rain that's still falling. Still to wet even with a under water detector.

    RD here the minerals are a real pain. They can change every few feet. To get these last few nuggest I had to do a lot of walking. Some of them could be in a patch but the vegatation is just to thick to cover the ground good.

    Brasil Adventure

    Found a documentary on the Amazon tribes I thought you might find interesting. From my house here to where they are is around 3,000 km. About 16 years ago I and the other grand-pa of our grand-son went to within 400km from where this film was made. The big chief of the tribe had a house and several wives in the town we were in and I had to have supper with him and drink some of his powerful brew to get permission to gold hunt in his land. He gave me the go ahead but from there I had to go several days horse back or fly in. I didn't have the time or the money to do that. Also afterwards I found out a couple of years before one of the tribes there attacked a camp of prospectors at night and killed all 28 of them. Hope this film comes out ok, I just wish it was in English.

  9. During the 3-1/2 years of World War II that started with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor in December of 1941 and ended with the surrender of Germany and Japan in 1945, "We the People of the U.S.A." produced the following: 22 aircraft carriers 8 battleships 48 cruisers 349 destroyers 420 destroyer escorts 203 submarines 34 million tons of merchant ships 100,000 fighter aircraft 98,000 bombers 24,000 transport aircraft 58,000 training aircraft 93,000 tanks 257,000 artillery pieces 105,000 mortars 3,000,000 machine guns and 2,500,000 military trucks We put 16.1 million men in uniform in the various armed services, invaded Africa, invaded Sicily and Italy, won the battle for the Atlantic, planned and executed D-Day, marched across the Pacific and Europe, developed the atomic bomb and, ultimately, conquered Japan and Germany. It’s amazing what America did in those days

    Weird $tuff

    Attending a wedding for the first time, a little girl whispered to her mother, 'Why is the bride dressed in white?' The mother replied, 'Because white is the color of happiness, and today is the happiest day of her life.' The child thought about this for a moment then said, 'So why is the groom wearing black?'

    Good machine, at that price you won't have it much longer. I would jump on it but by the time I got it here the price would at least double.
