New Treasure Hunter: Centurion

Tuesday, 20 July 2021 17:50

"Centurion refers to a Roman general who commanded 100 troops. As heavy and bright as the legendary Roman Regimental Standard this wine offers remarkable structure and grace surrounded  and cherry are entwined throughout and integrated into this blend.  

Oak and tannin offer a strapping core of fruit and sweet earth. Sleeker than a javelin and mightier than a  double-bladed sword, releases we have ever been honored to deliver."

This story lured me IN. Designer Betsey Johnson moved to this very well sitedMalibu Beach Trailer Park saying: 

At my age, if I fall down in the middle of the street, I want somebody to go: Hey! What's that girl doing in the middle of the street?

Treasure Hunter: Pardon My French

"Metal Dectectorist"

Looking for treasure with a metal detector has a long history.

But, with the onslaught of technology, the art form fell out of style. Recent shows like the one shown here, "The Detectorists," (BTW, Andy and I agree that this is possibly the best show ever!), youtube channels (including the Nugget Noggin from Charlotte) and a push by celebrities (Drew Barrymore gives detectors away on her show) have brought the the treasure hunt back into focus across all demographics.
