    Been a crazy week up here in my neck of the woods. Freezing temperatures, 2 x snow storms but still managed to get out 3 x to search for rings and coins. I did manage a couple of rings, and a good return on clad coins with the AT Pro.

    Of course, all this weird weather and hard work can make a guy hungry, so I marinated some meat last night, and put it in the smoker this afternoon. Should be ready tonite!

    Man, you are one busy guy! A great week hitting on all cylinders! Congratulations, and that jerky looks real tasty.

    "And so the population was gradually led into the demoralising temptations of arcades, baths, and sumptuous banquets. The unsuspecting Britons spoke of such novelties as 'civilisation', when in fact they were only a feature of their enslavement." Tacitus, Roman Senator and Historian, written AD 98.
