  1. Stupid is as stupid does

    So this dumb cat just ordered an XP Deus II. No particular reason. Just a little bored. It will be a kazillion years before it gets here. AND I certainly don't need one. But I did it anyway....
  2. This is just plain nuts!

    My "older" and maybe now certifiable 3rd cousin is going on a space ride today! No kidding! You may have heard of him, William Shatner, for real. Kind of odd, who would have thought? Guess I'll have to watch. That's ok, I don't need a turn.
  3. Anybody ever do their genealogy?

    Well, I did almost all of my American genealogy 40years ago so my mother could get into the DAR. I was successful. DNA studies revealed some American Indian Ancestry and Welsh, Scottish, English, and most recently Spanish? Spanish, like what? A marrooned conquistador? So...I did get some...
  4. You know its time to change doctors when...

    She mistakes a flea bite (thank you cats!) for a cancer. AND a freckle for a melanoma! She has been FIRED! And thank you to my other doctors who straightened that right out!
  5. What do you get when you mix 4 cats and 1 nearby tornado?

    You get a story, fortunately with a happy ending. Early last evening the phone "blew up" with a tornado warning. So...I already had the proper channels on the net and tv, tornado was inching closer to where I live. 23 miles, then 15, then 7. So for the first time ever I decided I would put...

    Got these a week ago and temporarily lost them. I'm good at that. Two on the left from PA. One on the right from Flint Ridge, Ohio. All are small.
  8. Its looking really good for the fall season

    I have a new 500 acre permission, never detected with an 1850 house on it. That should be a blast. Then I was goofing off at my "honey hole" a few of you have been to with me, you know, the place the sugar and chocolate fairy lives...Walked through a little corn and got a few button and minie...
  9. A few nice artifacts

    I went to a far away place that I have been to on several occasions in the past over the weekend. I could only get in about 4 hours but even though the corn was over knee high I was able to scrounge some nice stuff since it had rained hard. All items are made of Flint Ridge material. First...
  10. Two of my favorite finds - a blast from the past

    Here are two of my favorite points, that I got when I was a teenager. Several centuries ago. The first is made out of Flint Ridge, Ohio flint. It was found 400 miles east of Flint Ridge. Does anyone know what point type it is, or is it a cache blade? My archaeologist friend who was with me...
  11. A few points from yesterday

    I was at the far away place yesterday. Could only do a couple hours due to the humidity. I spied this one first and since I wasn't filthy yet took a pic in place. Then #2 showed up. Lastly, Got a slightly bigger one. The first one in the group picture is a Susquehanna broadspear. Second...
  12. A tale of critters - I have finally seen it all

    True story - you can't make this up. So me and the four cats are inside. Mr. Silver Roo, and his ladies Miss Buff and Miss Honey live outside in a varmin proof chicken pen. They are Old English Duckwing Bantam Gamebirds. Mr. Silver Roo is crowing his heart out this morning. Last night was...
  13. Need help with point identification

    All these are from northeast Maryland. None larger than about 2.5". The first one APPEARS to be made of bad grade of obsidian. There are volcanic outflows within a mile or so of where it was found, but these were ancient volcanos. Obsidian has been found here but not often. Semi...

    New lawn ornaments. They need to get back into the woods.
  15. I have some new friends - albeit on the small size

    In my front lawn...
  16. Smokey the idiot needs help with point ID

    I bet most of you were smart not to go out in 93 degree heat today, hence the self name calling. It was a short trip but the river was WAY down, and I have found some nice stuff when that happens. And its still too hot to put them in order. here. Nap time may be imminent. The tan point...
  17. Near help with glass beads from very old site in Virginia

    My one spot in Virginia was settled in the 1660's by European settlers. That said, the one rise above a spring would have been a fairly good lookout spot for native Americans. The host rock is limestone in the Shenandoah Valley. That said, there was a ca 1850 house there that burned down in...
  18. 🥇 BANNER My smallest point and largest point in the same day -Epic too small a term

    I drove to one of my far away places yesterday, I was trying to get there between rain storms as the corn is just starting to come in. Place #1 was inaccessible as the creek was flooding. I was hoping the flooding would have subsided but it didn't. So...I went to Place #2 on the same farm...
  19. Jaspers of the Northeast US

    This is just a short topical bit on jaspers found in he northeast US. The best jasper comes from a place called Vera Cruz, PA, near Allentown. It has been known to the American Indians since paleo times and now there is a little park at the mine itself. Points made of this material have been...
  20. 8 Grams of gold from my creek

    Yup, you heard that right. I've known for a long time thar be gold in these hills, however, that said, it's been very tough. Maryland has gold many places, and few places at the same time. My kids first let me know about it over 30 years ago but every time I go I get about half a gram or...
