    You guys find some cool things, indeed.
    I found this tooth. I think it's from a moose.

    You should put that under your pillow, and see what you get.

    Just think of how long someone looked for that half dollar back in the early 1800's. That was probably a week's wages back then.

    I found an old Barber dime once and a bunch of broken arrowheads.

    Stuff I did:
    Bales alfalfa and hay.
    Walking beans where we pulled the weeds, we didn't use roundup.
    Detasseling corn. We would walk the fields and pull tassels from two rows at once.
    Same here ... central Illinois farmland in the 70's and 80's and glad I had the opportunity.
    My grand-kids are clueless about hard work unless you're talking about pushing buttons on some screen. LOL

    Re: Old Tobacco video

    Twenty years ago, while hiking the eastern segment of the Tonto Trail within the Grand Canyon, I found a 1900-s Barber quarter in nearly mint condition, about 40 yards south of where the trail crosses the drainage of a side-canyon named Grapevine. That point was more than 2 miles from the closest part of the South Rim (as the crow flies; several days away by foot), so it is unlikely that it was tossed from there into the Canyon. The up-facing side had a golden patina that blended fairly well with the surrounding talus stones. The underside was silver colored.

    Given the superb condition of the coin, its date (1900), and where it was minted (San Francisco), my guess is that it was carried into the Canyon by one of a tiny number of hikers within the Canyon during the first few years of the 20th century (perhaps Emery or Ellsworth Kolb), and accidentally lost. Twenty-five cents was a lot of money to lose.

    The coin is now on display at the Grand Canyon National Park Service Museum.

    Getting back to the video after our little trip through The Waltons, Little House on the Prairie and the Mary Tyler Moore Show; Did anyone else notice the statement at 15min 22sec in the video when they say the temperature is raised and lowered several times between 80f and 180f over several days to allow the leaf to breath and colour evenly? Interesting.
    When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All the pain is felt by others.
    The same thing happens when you are stupid!

    Yes. I noted that, as well as a number of other errors. The flue-curing schedule has remained pretty much as you see it for the past century.

    Here we used to find regularly some intersting things in the fields (coins, horse shoes, and shrapnel...)
