your Odyssey Sea Glass News, Issue #031 Beach Time?
March 11, 2010
Hello all,

Lin_and_David

Greetings from Lin and me in Los Organos, Peru.

How is the weather there? We hope things are getting to where you can comfortably walk the beach.

Here in Peru, it is summer and yesterday was hot even by summer terms. At 3 p.m., I took a look at the thermometer on our kitchen wall and it was 87 degrees.

Actuallly, it felt hotter and more humid than what was shown on the dials. We need to get another thermometer to compare...but whatever, it has been hot.

Lin has been down with a "cold." Who ever came up with that name I don't know, as it doesn't seem much related to cold here.

If you haven't noticed it before, on our Home page, there is a chart down in the right column showing where we have had visitors. We would like to say a special hello to you who are visiting from Mongolia (Sain baina uu), Fiji (Dou bula), and Latvia (Sveiki). Welcome!

Now scrolling down, you'll see that quite a few in various locations have been actively hunting for sea glass and/or using it in projects in the past weeks.

We hope you are able to get out there and treasure hunt yourselves! Happy hunting.

Mar 9, 2010, Search This Site!!!!

We welcome the many sea glass fans that are getting to know us here at Odyssey Sea Glass.

As you know, our aim is to provide as much information we can give as well as getting y'all to contribute your knowledge and experience.

That's why there are currently about 500 pages of sea glass stuff on Odyssey Sea Glass.

There is no way we can keep it in front of you!!!!

So USE THE SEARCH BOX (see top of left column Search/Contents) to find a lot of information that you won't otherwise see.

For example, we just got a nice comment wondering about whether Fort Bragg permits taking of sea glass. I put "bragg" into our search box and came back with 10 pages that talk about it.

One of the pages is a full-blown article with photos and very complete information on legalities of seaglassing there.

But you may never see that article...and many others just as nice unless you do the SEARCH thing!!!

So the 3 rules for finding info on sea glass:

1. Search our site.

2. Search our site.

3. Search our site.

Actually, there's a fourth rule...because there is a lot of info still out there:

4. If it's not found on SEARCH, ask in the Questions section (toward the bottom of the left column).

Thanks, and Happy Hunting...you knowwww what I mean!
