I couldn't find a nugget but I noticed that a lot of the grains of sand were quite shiny. Therefor I panned out a pan of the dirt.
While I was panning I saw a streak of gold that was on the bottom of the pan. I should have taken it out right then and there but I thought I could pan out more gold by keeping on panning. Of course, I'm new at this and I washed out the gold.
There were two things I learned:
- Always pan into a tub so if something washes out you can repan it and retrieve it again.
- When you see gold, collect it right then.
I'm having trouble with my diabetes. I know that a Christian Scientist would basically say to ignore it or pray it away.
I was watching something on PBS today that recommended a diet change. I will go with what they were recommending. I've already cut out a lot of sugar from my diet by not drinking sodas. I'm afraid I'll have to quit eating ice cream as well. That is a major thing to me. I already feel better. Of course I'll call a practitioner as well.
Well that's all for today.
