    "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.

    Congrats on the thank you note. I never got a note, but I have been able to hand a few people their rings in person. It's a great high!

    That's awesome man..nobody takes the time to sit down and physically write someone and put it in the mailbox anymore. He must be really appreciative.

    Nice work.

    So shines a good deed in a weary world and every time you do a good deed, you shine the light a little farther into the darkness. Well Done!

    There are those who only see dollar signs when they find someone's lost treasures. Even in those instances where there are easy ways, or not so easy ways, to track down the person who lost the item. If those detectorists could understand that the heartfelt smile from a person who lost something dear to them, easily trumps the almighty dollar sign (no political pun intended), they would see a little bit nicer world around them.

    So Cheers to You Jimzz977 On being a good human being!

    You should add the link to your original posting of this, which would tie it all together. Honorable mention material here for sure!

    Classring reunited with its owner after 30 years in the dirt.
