    The next two will be in March and June, 2019. I know in June the talk will be about the collection Henry Thoreau put together while he lived at Walden Pond. I will post a meeting notice well beforehand next time. I posted at the last minute this time, in part, I confess, because I did not realize I would be able to attend myself until last minute.

    Thanks, Alan. I was sorry to see you were not able to make it. It had been quite awhile since I had made it myself. Next time, Alan!

    I'm disappointed that I was unable to attend the meeting as I had a project at home that needed to be finished. I would have loved to hear Dr Gramly speak, and I would have loved to say "Hi" to you Charlie.

    Yeah, that's about as elementary as it gets.

    No, it's actually common sense and elementary. Since he handed out copies yesterday of the paper he delivered on Cedar Fork Creek, Ohio, at the last Eastern States Federation meeting, I'm sure he won't mind me sharing the brief section dealing with your question. Basically, it concerns a mastadon's need for a pretty sizable intake of water on a daily basis, and the location of their expected access to water where the ice will be at its thinnest on frozen ponds in Winter.

    Well, Dr. Mike Gramly always delivers informative and highly entertaining talks. Terry(TSUMS) was there and offered me $10,000 for my North River, Ma fluted point Too bad I left it at home. Mike's talk was about his latest project, the Cedar Fork Creek site, a man-mastodon association in North-Central Ohio. With a comparison to the Bowser Road site and Hiscock site, both man-mastodon sites in New York. Mike has developed a model to make it easier to find such mastodon sites. The Hiscock site is believed to contain the remains of 40-60 mastodons, and Mike called it the most important man-megafauna site so far known in North America. Mike also argues that for one region in particular, New England, organized predation by human beings caused the extinction of mastodons. It is his belief that Clovis hunters did not depend on mastodon for dietary reasons, but that each band killed one mastodon every 7-9 years, and for ceremonial reasons primarily. People will, and do, differ on these hypothesis, but Mike always presents a well thought out argument.

    I attended with an artifact hunting partner and his wife. We look forward to a talk by Dr. Duncan Caldwell next year, regarding how Henry Thoreau collected many artifacts while living on Walden Pond. He called arrowheads "fossil thoughts".

    I'm not sure who brought this display, or where it was from. But, wow...
