      If cost is not an issue and you want the best, I would go with the Minelab GPZ-7000.  Most any gold detector from Minelab is pro quality.  White's is also good.   Fyi, the problem I had when detecting in the Philippines is the amount of trash in the ground.  Ton's of pop tops, metal foil shampoo sachet's, etc

      For yourself, you are doing the best you can by supporting the family’s requests.  As to the desire to know, the next time you get any sort of check up, ask for a simple blood test called hba1c. It is just a simple blood draw with results same day.  Best to get it interpreted by a health professional.  The result will be a number, compared to a standard. If you are in the range, test is normal.  If your results are high, it’s an indicator that you have accumulated higher than typical blood sugar levels over the last three months. A blood sugar test done after fasting, you may have already done.  That is for that recent period of time.  It is the one done with a test strip using a meter and a small test strip from a pinch of blood, usually from your finger. The hba1c reveals the last three months of blood sugar levels and is a good indicator if you may be developing type 2 diabetes. VERY TREATABLE,

      James Greenberger developed a love for aviation at an early age. Now the Darwin commercial pilot has fulfilled a childhood dream by building his own hovercraft: a ground effect vehicle built in his carport from plans purchased on the internet.   Nice..just what a guy needs to locate his missing droid..

      Let this video be the sole evidence in banishing the stereotype that cats are afraid of dogs. Because these cats certainly are not.  Meet the garden guardians whose main purpose is to protect the garden they inhabit. According to YouTube poster walter santi, the "rolling cat" helms the front lines. If the dog can get past that cat, "D'Artagnan's girlfriend" is waiting patiently as the second line of defense. Supposedly, the dog has never gotten past D'Artagnan's girlfriend, but if that ever happens, there's a total of 7 outdoor cats living in the garden. The creator of this YouTube account also has a dog, Walter, and two indoor cats, Santi and Indy.  Those three animals combined with their army of outdoor cats means the neighbor's dog probably isn't getting into the garden anytime soon, try as she might.

      Thanks for this..  I find your description a bit scary.. for me.  for the very simple reason that you have simply pointed out how much I DON"T KNOW..  and really don't WANT TO KNOW.  I'm not a doctor, or a nutritionist, or a nurse and I'm not a family member.  And I believe in the old adage that too many cooks spoil the soup. So..  I'll make a trip to SM, and Watson, and Rose, and Mercury, and Gaisano..  and hopefully that answers the question I have from the family..  and that's another job done. Thanks to all.

      Hi buddy. Long time no speak. I still have the contact details of a lass we nicknamed "Superwoman". Her place is on Via Rama. Go down V.Rama towards South Road and shortly before the junction of these two roads you will see a Shell gas station on your right. Immediately opposite is a side street with an emission test place on the corner. This is her place. Name of Mellie. Very efficient and will do everything for you. Registered many big bikes and cars with her. Still use her even though I live in Valencia now. Her number is 09235863888. Cheers - Barry

      Hi Paul.  Why would messages on Angie be blocked? I know you're not in your former capacity, but I find it annoying that I can't express myself about my friend.  Hope you're well.
