    Metal detecting is much more than a hobby

    You no the more I think about it, I think they should offer a class in school, u might say what, here’s why. First of all schools lack teaching local history unbelievable, they try to teach about the world but not local. So many people all occupied up in fast paced life’s they r unfortunately missing out on true history right before you. Gee I could go on but this can be used for a education experience, be open minded but our society is not focused on there surroundings with so much to offer, I’m sure you would agree. It almost bothers me to some degree, oh well they lose I guess

    When I learned about what formed after a meeting on Jekyll island a little over a hundred years ago is when I realized history is truly His-story. I never learned about central banks or how the medical industry was formed in school. Just mentioning a couple very important subjects "they" forgot to include......strange.
