    A patio is a miniature island of sorts. I'm all for repurposing, and if you aren't going to wash them...might as well do something productive with 'em The Plaza Cafe sounds like a groovy joint. The perfect kind of place to chill and enjoy the people show.

    Trump wouldn't even know how to use a fishing pole. How's that for a self proclaimed genius

    Ice Fishing

    ICE FISHINGThe President and the head of the Democrat Party, Nancy Pelosi, are arguing extensively over allowing immigrants into our country. Nancy of course wants free access to everyone who wants to come in, while Donald wants us to secure our borders and insure only the right people come.Instead of going to a costly, time-consuming nationwide vote on the matter, they agree to a 3-day ice fishing contest to settle the issue whoever catches the most fish at the end of the 3 days will have his or her process implemented. The two decide that a remote frozen lake in northern Wisconsin would be the ideal place. No observers on the fishing grounds,but both would need to have their catches verified and counted each night at 5 PM so they use a neutral park ranger station. After Day 1, Trump returns to the station with a total of 10 fish, while Pelosi comes back with nothing. Day 2 finishes and Trump catches another 20 fish, but Pelosi once again comes back with nothing. That night, Pelosi and her liberal cronies get together and accuse Trump of being a “low-life, cheating piece of scum.”Instead of fishing on Day 3, they are going to follow Trump and to spy on him and figure out how he is cheating. Day 3 finishes up and Trump has had an incredible day, adding 40 more to his total. That night, Pelosi and her democratic cohorts get together for the full report on how Donald was cheating. Pelosi stands up to give her report and says, “You are not going to believe this. Trump is cheating because he's cutting holes in the ice.” And this, my friends, tells you the difference between a businessman and a career government politician.

    We think alike! I figure the powdered ceramic would make an excellent floor. Like terrazzo. Instead of washing dishes you could pour big floor tiles with white portland. Instead of drying dishes you could grind a nice surface on it. You would never have to wash dishes and you could spend that time doing something worthwhile. After a year you would have a fantastic patio to show for it instead of wrinkled fingers. It is a perfect win/win situation! --- The Plaza Cafe in Santa Fe has been there for 80 years. I used to coffee there. They took all their broken dishes and cups and tiled the walls. They used them for borders and designs in the floors. The bathrooms were completely covered in broken dishes, cups and saucers. The cup handles stuck out all over the walls at every angle. There must have been a 12 yard dump truck load of broken dishes stuck to the walls. Every color, pattern and texture that you could ever imagine. It was way beyond cool.

    If you mixed the crushed dishes with some mortar it would be a satisfactory building material. You could slowly eat and grind your way into a new hacienda! Or just leave it a pile and bask in the luxury of owning your very own ceramic island! With a nice chair on top, and maybe a pool.

    I used that method for about a week but I got tired of eating off a dirty plate after about six days. So I threw that plate up on the countertop and went down and bought me a years worth of dishes. I have considered installing a chute next to the sink that leads outside to small crusher. The idea of just pushing all those dirty dishes into a hopper and powdering them has always fascinated me.

    I solved that problem by only having one plate, one fork, one spoon..etc. The pile never gets out of hand that way.

    Cowboy coffee

    My son uses a French Press. The coffee is excellent. But you have to wash that thing. I only wash dishes once a year so I would have to buy a half dozen. I would not have room for all those dirty coffee presses on my countertop with all the dirty cups and dishes. It would force me to remodel the kitchen and make it bigger or start burying my dirty dishes in the yard. I use the Mexican Press. After my little funnel has dripped I roll up the grounds in the filter and squeeze the heck out of it getting the last of that thick, oily, alkaloid rich coffee into the cup. I use the small drip filter instead of the paper cones because the cones have a crappy seam that opens up when you squeeze them.

    I've tried coffee all kinds of ways. I enjoyed good ol percolator coffee for a long time. Then I got lazy and started using a mr coffee drip machine. It worked, but the coffee lacked soul. I can't handle the instant stuff at all. I switched to a french press recently. I will compare it to listening to recording through some chitty headphones and then hearing the entire orchestra in person. The difference really is astounding. If you ever get a french press(walmart $20) throw away the instructions and do it this way: I use about 4 tablespoons of good beans per large travel mug. Grind your beans coarsely. Dump them into your press. Pour enough boiling water in there to make your cup. Put the lid on and wait 4-5 minutes. The coffee grounds will be floating on top. Now give em a swirl to stir it up good. The grounds will sink. Now, leave the whole thing alone for another 8-10 minutes. Depress your plunger to push any unsunken grounds to bottom and pour the brown elixir into your cup...you will be rewarded with the most lush and rich cup of coffee you ever had. Repeat daily for best results, but be careful... you can quickly become a coffee snob.

    A New Refreshment

    You actually like Miner's Gold? I live in Kalispell MT and I tried it just because it had the awsome name "Miner's Gold" and to my surprise it was very watered down tasting. I found it to be horrible. I can pick some up and send it to you. Just let me know. It would be no problem at all.

    AAAAHHH ! Seems to me I remember sitting under a canopy waiting for the rain to stop with a couple friends of mine one rainy day while "never giving up " detecting ! AHAHAHAHAHAHAAAA !

    detecting boots

    The snake gators I have would not cover the non-leather part of the boot on the foot. I've only needed the gators once though. Aside from the snakes once, the gators have comein very handy to keep the thorns out of the boot. There's other gators you can get that cover that part of the foot.

    I have battery back up plus solar to recharge battery.....even have a complete portable unit antenna and all for remote locations.

    My opinion is if you ar going to hunt just gold then get a gold machine , but if ya want to hunt coins / relics and some gold you can't beat an Equinox 800. You might want to call Bill Southern (nuggetshooter) and talk to him....he has some great videos on you tube ..look up nuggetshooter and you can watch them.

    Gold Monster 1000 seems to be the detector to get. Much less than the bigger pulse induction detectors and it's pretty easy to use, Besides that my only other suggestion, for a little more money, would be to buy a used Minelab GPX series detector. If you're just starting out with the hobby you gotta make sure you actually like the art of metal detecting. The process of swinging the coil, digging targets and moving onto the next buried treasure, just waiting to be found, is what this hobby is all about.

    Cowboy coffee

    When you said "Folgers freeze dried" I suddenly remembered that I used "Folgers Crystals" for about a year. One of my buddies got me started drinking it. I remember really liking that stuff and it was quick and easy. I recall it made some killer red eye gravy too. I might just go out and get me a little jar of it. I don't think I will change my morning routine to instant but I might make some more of that red eye gravy to go with the venison. My mom used to drink instant. She would not let me drink coffee but the whole house would smell like dad's cowboy coffee and mom's instant crystals in the morning. I liked to lick my finger and stick it in those crystals. And I liked the way the instant stained the spoon. I would clean that off too. Those Folgers Crystals were probably the gateway drug that led to my raging caffeine addiction today. Kinda like low grade brown meth.

    Hello and welcome to the club. Just curious as to what you are going to be "detecting". That is pretty important when choosing the right detector. More gold than relics and coins? Depth of ground and size of gold? If you know the answer to that one of course. There are just so many variables and questions you have to ask yourself before anyone can really point you in the right direction. All detectors will find metal, but just depends on the metal your wanting find and the area. Good luck and welcome aboard, there are great folks here.

    Opinions please

    Yes I agree. Sometimes hard things are brittle and sometimes softer things are more durable. I suppose what I was trying to say is it is both tough and hard. It is very hard because it resists abrasion with good quality silicon carbide paper. It is very tough because you can set it on an anvil and whack it pretty good and it will just reject the hammer blow. So it is high on the whackability scale too. I would say about a 734 or 735. It is a whackabilly for sure. It was very difficult to get a window big enough to see the inside so I was trying to knock one of those horns off with a hammer. I wasn't hitting it to see how hard it was I was hitting it to get a look at a broken face. In doing that I realized it was extremely durable as well. Me am not going to do a specific gravity test on it. It is not exceptionally heavy for its size and color. In the hand it feels about right for a piece of iron rich rock. Me would estimate the SG to be about 4.5-5 but that is a wild azz guess just like the hardness estimate and the whackability scale. It is hard. It is durable. It is aphanitic or cryptocrystalline. It is not particularly heavy for an iron rich volcanic but heavier than quartz. From the little me was able to grind off of it, it has a light streak. It is of extrusive or very low pressure volcanic origins. It is only very slightly attracted to a neo magnet. It is found as nodules scattered within a white, chalky horizon below a flow of high silica vesicular basalt several feet thick. Me have been back to that spot repeatedly over the last ten years and me just can't find the ledge that these things are rolling out of. Most natives would have given up. But me is headed back out to get another bite of that big volcanic trap and see if me can locate that spot and collect a few more. Me am not going to give up until me finds them again. Me is very curious.

    Hey everyone! I've been searching through the old posts on this site but I'm still overwhelmed by the quantity of manufacturers and models of detectors, not to mention all the hundreds of modifications like different coils. What would you recommend to someone just starting out nugget detecting on dry land? I don't mind something complicated, as I can dedicate the time to learn it. I just want something that works. But there are so many different detectors to choose from it's honestly overwhelming. I was looking at the Garrett AT Gold which I like because of it's waterproofing, it would allow me to search in the rain. Would this be a good choice? Also the Minelab X-terra 705 seems to be well regarded here. I don't mind putting in the hours to learn the device but I could use some direction before dropping serious coin on these expensive pieces of equipment. Thanks in advance for any guidance!
