Our "water witch" has done his job and found the spot for our new well. He used welding rods, held firmly, one in each hand. They were pointed straight out perpendicular to the front of his body. He walked along and all of a sudden the two rods crossed. He kept doing this over and over until he had found the center where he wants to drill the well. It's 2005 and the old way of finding water still prevails. Sort of comforting that some things don't need to be high tech. Of course the test will be when he drills on the site and finds or doesn't find water. Stay tuned.
I'm an Aquarius who was raised a Roman Catholic in Minnesota. I've managed to overcome the religion and the state. I've lived in California for 40 years. I retired in 2007 and became a quilter and appliquer. Never thought I would find the medium that would let me express my artistic feelings. I love vivid color. In addition, I'm a locavore, foraging for food to keep my husband and me healthy and to help local farmers. I live in Northern California on five acres.
