  1. SOOOOOO, Hows that dredging going in California? Finding lots of Gold yet? I figure you guys are rich about now, as OGM and others stated that you had the Constitution on your side! Please post some pictures so we all can see how your doing!
  2. Probably heals faster than we do....great news Skip!
  3. Some interesting reading from NASA http://science.nasa.gov/science-news/science-at-nasa/2006/10mar_stormwarning/
  4. Jim, go ahead and vent brother....we are here and we have been through similar experiences on trips. California is one messed up state.....Please PM me about your solar issue, I have some experience and would like to hear what you are doing with it. Tomorrow is another day.......Love your mom while you have her, mine died very young.
  5. It was announced today that once again Sheriff Arpaio has been threatened. Its not the first time, but the concerns at this point is that the text from an international phone number, is spreading like wildfire. Proof of 2 things: Joe is doing his job and that the Cartels will stop at nothing. They will reach into our country when they need to. http://www.myfoxphoenix.com/dpp/news/immigration/mexican-drug-cartel-sheriff-arpaio-07292010 http://www.foxnews.com/us/2010/08/02/mexican-drug-cartel-allegedly-puts-price-arizona-sheriffs-head/ I am sure that Sheriff Joe will be well protected, but please remember that the Nogales Sonora Police Chief was killed less than 3 miles from the border in March of this year. http://www.kgun9.com/Global/story.asp?S=12214114
  6. I agree Terry, also the Tubac and Elephant Head areas (very close to that area) have experienced the same anomalies. The impact is both physical and financial.
  7. As many of us Prospect the desert and lonely places, I have always maintained that the illegal immigration issue and the Drug cartel issue, is a major danger to us. This thread will be dedicated to facts about Drug cartel activities in our areas of interest. Illegal immigrant and Drug running corridors in relation to prime prospecting spots and areas of interest. Area closures News items w/links that may be applicable to the dangerous issue affecting the entire border region. This is not a Political thread and I will be asking Skip to remove any Political posts, so they do not get off topic. I am currently involved with the Border Patrol here locally in southern Arizona and 7 southern Arizona Police and Sheriffs Dept's. 2 New Mexican Sheriffs Dept's. 1 California Sheriffs Dept. and 0 Texas (still trying). I appreciate those of you that do not live in these states or think that these issues do not affect you or your Prospecting. I would ask that you respect that it does affect many of us. But if you think it doesnt affect you, how about the Nun that was killed by an illegal immigrant that had been released by ICE, even after he already had 2 prior drunk driving arrests? http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2010/aug/2/illegal-immigrant-killed-nun-released-by-feds/?page=1 This happened this last Sunday morning. Thank you in advance for your support and if you wish to comment or send me information that I can verify, please message me for my email address.
  8. Dogs are tough my friend. I am darn glad that you said no to the euthanasia. Even if you had to carry her, she will still love you and time will heal her wounds.
  9. I guess you could say, you "Dredgers" suck it harder....
  10. There once were two Prospectors, named Eldorado and Bedrock Bob, who were the best of friends. During one particular night of revelry, the two agreed that when one passed on, the other would take and spill the contents of a bottle of fine, Whiskey over the grave of the fondly missed and recently dead friend. And as fate would have it, Bob would be the first to pass. Eldorado, hearing of his friend's illness, came to visit his dear friend one last time. "Bob," said Eldorado, "can you hear me?" Faintly, Bob replied, "Yes, Eldorado, I can." Bashfully, Eldorado started, "Do you remember our pact?" "Yes, I do Eldorado," Bob strained. "And, you'll also remember that I was to pour the contents of a fine, old bottle of whiskey over your grave, which we have been saving for, going on 30 years now?" said Eldorado. "Yes Eldorado, I do," whispered Bob. "It's a very "old" bottle now, you know," urged Eldorado. "And what are you gettin' at Eldorado?" asked Bob, briskly. "Well Bob, when I pour the whiskey over your grave, would ya mind if I filter it through my kidneys first?
  11. Ah....I see you have been burning up the boards all across the web eh? Looking for keyboard glory are we? hmmm....what a waste.
  12. As you joined the forum at 605pm and this was posted at 610pm, I was wondering where you had copied and pasted this from? Surely with your "razor-cut" hand you could not have typed this out in 5 minutes?
  13. UM....huh.....um....huh......ok......um......thanks.... As we no longer have a Politcal section and religion and Politics are the 2 main topics that gets peoples dander up....can we not have a religious section too?
