Listen at http://thetreasurecorner.com.

And while I'm here, let me apologize for not telling you about my previous two shows. My computer was giving me fits, and it deleted my mailing lists. I'm finally getting back on track.

The last show celebrated my 7th "birthday," with a list of the most popular episodes over the past year. And the show before that gave instructions on how to make your own probe, a simple tool that can often pinpoint and retrieve coins faster than any other method. You'll see all of these when you visit http://thetreasurecorner.com and scroll down. Enjoy!
