  1. I'm not seeing 'the gold' you are talking about. Could it be pyrite/mica you are looking at? Man, 30 rocks with gold showing, just laying there to be found by eye. Sounds like a really good area.
  2. So sorry to hear this. Reg helped me personally through a long string of emails and phone calls when I was interested in coil building. He also shared his knowledge directly which enabled me to modify my White's SPP. RIP Reg. Thanks for everything. Luke
  3. Here's one I've watched a couple times. These guys have been moderately successful over the years.
  4. Sounds like you need to watch more YouTube videos.
  5. Hey Gary. Glad you're still out and about. Nice gold.
  6. Yeah.... That's quite a nugget Mike !! Congratulations!!
  7. Hopefully some of you other guys have been doing better than myself. Perhaps, this can be a thread where all are welcome to post their gold found since the world changed. Seriously, anyone who found some nuggets since April, post em up. Let's see them !!
  8. Yep, been hearing and seeing them every year since ever since. Back in the 80's, used to have a cat that would go out under the street light all night and hunt the cicadas. If I got ahold of one, I could call him over and he'd eat it out of my hand. I sure would love to go back to those simpler times. Thanks for the reminder.
  9. Interesting bunch of videos. That environment you live in is very scenic. On a side note: That 'quote' from Benjamin Franklin is a misquote. He didn't actually say that. "The closest Franklin comes to expressing this sentiment is where he writes in a 1773 letter, “There is Truth in the Old Saying, That if you make yourself a Sheep, the Wolves will eat you.”" https://checkyourfact.com/2019/05/29/fact-check-democracy-jefferson-adams-franklin-hamilton/ Here's a few more from the original American. "Without freedom of thought there can be no such thing as wisdom; and no such thing as public liberty, without freedom of speech." "Freedom of speech is a principal pillar of a free government; when this support is taken away, the constitution of a free society is dissolved, and tyranny is erected on its ruins. Republics…derive their strength and vigor from a popular examination into the action of the magistrates." "Only a virtuous people are capable of freedom. As nations become more corrupt and vicious, they have more need of masters." "This Constitution…can only end in despotism…when the people shall become so corrupted as to need despotic government, being incapable of any other." https://fee.org/articles/17-benjamin-franklin-quotes-on-tyranny-liberty-and-rights/?gclid=EAIaIQobChMIhOiA097A6gIVJBh9Ch1N9gieEAAYASAAEgIhK_D_BwE
  10. Maybe some sort of concrete cure?
  11. Happy 4th of July !! Hopefully your 'loved ones' aren't afraid of loud noises.
  12. The thing that creeps me out the most about scorpions is how fast they move. Do you think the flies were attracted to the black light? Or just a lot of flies that night? Cool video Bob.
  13. If you cut that lid so it fits under your magnets, it might be 'as easy' as pulling it off when you want to lose the iron bits. Or not. Nice job on the contraption.
  14. Well, yeah. But let's not forget about Shakespeare. He and Mr. Fenn are poets. There must be a correlation.
  15. I see that too. But I'm pretty sure it's Grandpa Munster. Simply because Shakespeare was dead before Washington and Lincoln were born. Grandpa is a vampire, so he's probably been around for a few hundred years, at least.
  16. One thing I am certain of, it's that this monument depicts Grandpa Munster as an influencer of William Shakespeare. Notice how Grandpa Munster seems to be whispering in his ear.
  17. Oh, I thought this was a monument depicting Shakespeare and a mini-Grandpa Munster.
  18. Boy that's a beauty !! Keep em' coming. WTG Slim.
  19. No doubt the overall cost was much higher. Thanks for posting the link Dave. “… it was the intention of these outlaws to waste our wheat fields, in order, if possible, to starve the people into submission to the hated and detested government of Abe Lincoln. Who but savages, yes, worse than savages, resort to such a mode of warfare? The history of the world does not contain an instance when it has been done.” Evil comes in all shapes and forms.
  20. Here's an interesting article.... https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/last-person-to-receive-a-civil-war-era-pension-dies/ar-BB14WxEa?ocid=edgsp Let's keep it Civil please.
  21. No. I just thought I'd repeat a term that has been popularized these last few years. It doesn't matter how true a statement might be, once 'Fake news' has been proclaimed. It's the flip side of the coin. Why would you post anything you weren't sure was true?
