  1. This is what is showing today Sunday June 28th...
  2. One thing that might come into it Terry is that much of the soil out here, as you know, has lots of silicates in it and they tear the crap out of your hands. A scoop is really nice then. Also if you are like me and happen to mainly find stupidly small gold, that is another reason to have one. The dropped part will catch those flakes and make getting the soil off quicker. Just thoughts...
  3. Good luck with your new item. How much are they? Colors?
  4. So fascinating. I would love to learn.
  5. Slim that is a beauty. Did it make a big noise when you went over it? And, what was your first thought when you heard it?
  6. BMc a deep bow in your direction. That was one of the clearest and most informative posts on the subject I've ever seen. Thank you. My nephew is a SWAT officer in Oakland. No explanation needed. I have had many amazing talks with him and to hear his take on policing is a revelation as well…he loves the people he protects, has great empathy for them even as as he has to also face down very dangerous criminality. He has a big heart, talks often of having to deal with various aspects of burn-out and frustration. His wife is a dispatcher for the same department. Imagine having to vector your husband into harms way and hear what he is dealing with in real time. Policing is difficult and needs very specific and detailed training and uniquely qualified people to carry out the duties. A fitting post to lock the topic on...
  7. But Mac is a grown-up and doesn't tattle to the mod's… Anyway Slim knows it's all in good fun, right Slim?
  8. …and in the end we'll all end up laughing. We all want the same thing, a better America.
  9. And slim stop whining in the moderator forum about being "attacked by a moderator"… when you say dumb stuff you're going to get called on it. You complain there all the time and it's kind of funny when you're the only one who seems to get picked on…do you ever ask yourself why? May as well say it here in the thread where everyone can see it.
  10. Slim's version of knowledge. Very impressive Slim...
  11. Oh I can't wait to hear this one… Educate us Slim!
  12. Terry, from my heart...I am sorry your son got hurt. My nephew is an Oakland SWAT officer and, like your son, is constantly at the forefront of whatever disturbances come up and in Oakland and Berkley…well you know what it's like. It occurred to me as I read your post, that most of the kids on both sides of these protests (and riots), are somebody's son or daughter. I haven't seen a clearer delineation of a large part of the problem than "... We need better police officers. Better psych tests and evaluations, better training. We have Thousands of bad, seriously troubled men and women with badges in this Country…" I also feel that 'qualified immunity' has had a lot to do with the impunity with which police shoot people. An investigation by Reuters published last month showed that, over the past three years, police won more than half of the excessive force suits in which they claimed qualified immunity, a sharp increase from prior periods. Qualified immunity was “making it easier for officers to kill or injure civilians with impunity,” the news service reported. I don't think rioters or looters should be shot on sight unless deadly force is necessary because of an imminent and specific threat to life. Best wishes to you and your family
  13. Hey slim how about the post above that one? Some idiot passed that crap around too didn't you...
