Treasure in the garden – So glad I found this metal detector

Hello Guys!

I still can’t believe what we found in my best friend’s garden, and if I’m right you won’t either.

5 days ago I helped Johny (my best friend for 20 years) to move into his new house. We packed and placed all the furniture he has and brought all the paper boxes he could get. But before that we let his dog get to know his new place, the whole garden.

After we finished packing, we found his dog as it already dug in the garden in several spots. We didn’t know why so we had to investigate it. We found nothing special, just some old piece of toys and coins. Maybe the last owner of the house dug the garden to plant grass or something like that, we did not give it too much attention.

But next day Johny called me, that his dog won’t stop digging and he told me that he is sure that something must be around. So I traveled to him with some tools in my car:

We already had two spades, but we still needed a metal detector, in order not to dig the whole garden. So, with curiosity, we searched on the internet to find the best metal detector for the money, because we didn’t want to spend all of our saved money on that. We found a site full of reviews about metal detectors: Pick My Metal Detector. We found a middle-class product and we ordered it. Just like ants in our pants, we were so excited like small children. We could not even wait for the delivery.

The metal detector arrived yesterday. After a round in his garden, Johny found a spot, where both the machine beeped and the dog dug. We dug for an hour and we found a coffer, that looked like a hundred years old piece of history.

With a crowbar, we opened it and after a minute of silence, we realised that we found a time capsule from 1920! it survived more than 90 years. As the writings said on it, it should be opened after 50 years, but that’s nearly double that time.

We found some cool stuff inside and a letter which explained how they thought the world would look like after 50 years. It was a quite accurate guess. And it was a really good experience for us.

We both new that we won’t get rich from this treasure, but that metal detector still worths its price!

Tankless water heater for a safer home

With a little bit of luck, I was able to survive up to this day.

Last week I was doing my regular business at my home, cleaning, and D.I.Y. a doghouse, when I heard a strange noise from the cellar. I rushed there and when I arrived my boiler exploded. I was 3 feet away from that. It destroyed the cupboard next to it and left a very big black spot on the wall. Fortunately, the pressure pushed me away. I hit my head so hard that I nearly fainted and by the boiling water, that ran out of the boiler my leg burned through my jeans.

I had to stop the gushing water by shutting off the whole water system in my house. It prevented the water to flow through the leak of the system. I could call some of my friends before all of the energies left my body.

Of course, after that incident, I needed a lot of help. Two of my friends helped to get the water out of my cellar, while another of my friends drove me to the nearest hospital. There they treated my wounds and they forced me to stay in the hospital over the night.

In the morning they inspected my status again, and they let me went home.

Thanks to my friends, when I arrived there was no sign of the event. They handled the situation. I don’t know how big damage could be caused to my house if they didn’t help me out.

Now, I’m fully recovered and want my water system to run again. To do this I have two options:

  • Buy another boiler
  • Install a tankless water heater

I like the second option because that could not explode in the future.

I already looked for the best tankless water heater: www.primeheaters.com, which I found on the site I linked. This has several security processes, which could prevent any event like I experienced. It is a little bit more expensive, but who cares if it means to be safe.

With this tankless water heater maybe I could sleep without the fear of laying on a counting bomb.

Turntable of my dream

Hello everybody!

I am in love with the ’70s and ’80’s. Such a shame that I borned only after the end of the mentioned epic decades… Anyway, since I don’t have timemachine, to travel back, I try to make my surroundings in order to represend the so called freedom.

I could not imagine any better, than being in a room, where people can chat on couches and egg chairs, with lava lamps in the corners. In the low light, a quiet, but catchy music is being played, and you can eventually see the spinning of you favourite band’s vinyl.

With this picture in my mind, I started to rebuild my home and this is what I want to share with you. There are already some change I did, but this is the first notable.

In order to fulfill this dream of mine, I first bought a turntable. Unfortunately, this wasn’t as easy as I thought. I spent more than 10 hours reading reviews through the internet and… there is a lot of option and even more misleading pages… Just when I wanted to give up andgo to sleep I found myself on a site, which explained everything about record players, quite honestly: here is the link, if you need help to figure out which is the best turntable for you.

After I finished reading the articles I felt, that now it’s time to finally choose…and I did. Then I fell asleep with uncertainty about my choice. In my dream I saw as I put my father’s vinyls on my very new player and it sounded AWESOME!!! 155704872_crosley-cr6005a-tech-turntable-record-player-am-fm-ipod

In the morning I woke up with my mind still in my dream and I felt that something great is going to happen. I had to wait 2 days, but then, my turntable finally arrived! And guys…it’s even better than it was in my dream!!! Now the first thing I do when I come home is putting up some good old discs and just chill. Best days of my life sofar!

It is highly recommended for everybody to obtain one. You don’t know what you miss if you use only your ipod…

Now I have to change the vinyl, so…

See you next time!
