spent all day saturday diving the edisto river fossil and relic hunting with an old college friend, gary koger, who has been a professional history relic and fossil hunter. him and i went to a spot he has been before on the edisto and we dove for 2-3 hours. we burnt a couple tanks each and snorkeled in some shallower water as well. from his perspective, we didn't do so well but i thought it was great. at right is a sharks tooth i found in about 8-10ft of water. it is small by most standards, approx 2" tall. found a few of these, gary found a big meg, around 4" tall. we also found, sawfish teeth, ray plates, whale vertebrate, tuna tails, sunglasses, lost key rings, a cell phone and countless other schwagg. it was a fun and educational day. i look forward to more relic hunting real soon.

now this would be a first. to have logo we designed to be photographed from a satellite? it could happen. and it might. its all part of the halloween corn maze where some really smart folks used gps to carve the new identity and slogan into the corn field. pretty freakin cool.

recently i spotted this package in an old antique store. it's some sort of apocalyptic preparation with quinine. and to prepare for the coming apocalypse, everything you need is in this little box. all i can figure is the quinine makes the poison go down easy. i could never sell that name to any client. they just wouldn't think it was a positive message. later.
