I used to when I did archaeology.  I see guys probing the ground in my neighbor hood all the time for old bottle caches.  I found some Civil War era ceramic beer bottles during an excavation in downtown Des Moines and have some odds and ends.

I've always wanted to do that. Since my giant tree fell over, I think I will go dig some  holes in on the hill in my back yard. Yetta has the rest of the yard covered, but she hasn't found anything but giant moles.

If you can just find a long, skinny piece of metal to poke in a ground a foot or so, you'll know when you hit glass, then you can haul out the shovel.  Digging holes kinda sucks, especially it you come up empty after a day of digging.  Depressions or abnormal looking 'bumps' in the topography are good places to start probing.  Old farms are good places to probe, usually near the foundation as lots of folks had a garbage pit near the foundation.  Abandoned cisterns are sometimes filled with bottles and such as well.  I've never intentionally went outlooking for bottles, just been lucky to find surface features that indicate bottles below.

I'm taking the afternoon off and I'm going to go poke around in the mud. There are long, skinny metal rods in the back yard that the guy who cut up the tree that fell over left back there.

"I think it may be Loverboy.  I found two binders full of glossy photos and promo stuff of bands that played at Alpine Valley in 1980, some autographed to a Leslie but most are not.  There are all kinds of interesting things in those binders."

Awesome.  i bet I know some people who went to at least a few of those shows.

I have a found photo collection dating back to 92. I'll post some when I get time.

I used to work at a movie theater. This is by far the best thing I ever found while cleaning theaters:

Holy moly that is hysterical.
I love how Tanner misspelled "very" after spelling it correctly 11 straight times.

That is great.  And the payoff makes it really classic.

Also funny: Emily's post.
Oh, good heavens. I didn’t realize. I send my condolences out to the rest of the O’Connor family.
