After my oxen shoe story, I was surprised to find a comment from someone who owns an ox but not a metal detector, and he has a blog. Check it out– Ox and Dog Blog. There are folks who would be happy to find oxen shoes. Perhaps there is some way we could recycle them?

Looks like there was a lot of backlash over the City of O’Fallons, new ordinance on metal detecting. They are going to try to change the ordinance to make it more sensible. Read More »
Thank God they found these guys!
I get a fantastic signal, my mind thinks “oxen shoe”, my machine reads “oxen shoe”, but can I ignore it? Nooooo! I dig, and dig, with the anticipation of a fantastic find spurring me on, until finally my treasure is revealed…a lowly oxen shoe. Sigh—I move on… Read More »
I was at a meeting of the Nor’easters Metal Detecting Club last night, and one of the members mentioned my review about Dick Stouts new book, “In search of treasure”. He wanted to know, Did I actually read the book before writing the review? I assured him that I had, and that it was a good read.
Dick and I may joke around about the “check being in the mail” whenever we compliment the other, but it’s all in good fun.
So, to clarify…I did read the book, and I did like the book, and I think you should read it too!
A shout out to the Task Force for their efforts–the detecting community appreciates it! Read More »

Life intervened today and I did not have time to post about this issue. Thank-you Dick for getting the word out.
Tick tock-tick tock-tick tock….silence. Hmmm…the package the battery in my clock came in said they expired in April 2013. I realize that is shelf life, but I never thought the battery would die before the Task Force updated it’s web site.
I hear a lot of stuff, I’ve been told good things are happening and in the works. So I’m wondering….WHEN? Read More »
Being female, I’m always looking for new ideas to add to my safety in the field.
I’ve been warned by well-meaning friends and family about my frequent solo excursions into parks and wooded areas. It’s nice to know people care about me, but they should also realize I pay very close attention to, and take notice of my surroundings. I don’t need any surprises. Even so, you never know who or what may pose a threat. Read More »
Okay, I won’t bore you with the details of how Stacey came upon this little stash. All I’m gonna say is I’ve hunted this park with Stacey, and the finds are few and far between. I suppose the reason for that is because they were all buried in the same hole!!!
Congrats to you Stacey!
I’ve decided to put local events together in one post, so those of you who don’t live in the area are not inundated with a bunch of local events you can’t attend. Read More »
