In the Corner with Dan Hughes

If some of this week's program topics sound familiar, it's because I am plagiarizing myself.  Several of the tips here appeared in earlier programs.  No, I'm not recycling old shows out of laziness.  My earliest shows are a bit overlong, and I'm in the process of recording new versions of them. 

I'm dropping all those music intros and outros from those early shows, and limiting each program to just one topic.  That means I'll be removing all the tips and tricks from those shows. 

And rather than just discarding them, I'm recycling them in this show.  Today's tip topics include ideas about shoes, toothpaste, bars of soap, and nail apron fashion.

Split-the-loot contracts between treasure hunters and property owners are a popular topic with treasure hunters.  Here's why you should never (well, hardly ever) use such a contract.  And if you decide to use one anyway, please be aware of the one clause you should NEVER, EVER put into a contract.
