I heard something from over by the church. There was a basement entrance and a stairwell there. At the top of the stairwell was the biggest...

  7. coin and jewelry inspection

    If you have an smart phone some of the magnifying apps work pretty well. I have an iPhone and I use this app > Magnifier App. I like that it allows you to freeze the image, look at a negative image, and adjust contrast. All of the attached images were captured from this app. h/h

  14. Things I Miss The Most.

    Last one on 2/12/14. Quit once for 5 years, but my wife was still a heavy smoker. Started smoking again because it was putting a strain on the marriage. I’d tell people when they mentioned me smoking again “it was cheaper than a divorce”. 3 years after that I was diagnosed with bladder cancer...
