Box Unearthed in Family’s Attic May Contain Pirate Treasure

Originally posted on TIME:

A Florida family was shocked to find a box of treasure in their attic during what seems to be a very profitable spring cleaning session.

“Maybe my great-grandparents were pirates,” one member of the Lopez family said, according to USA Today.

The collection included 18th-century coins, a map, a family photo, and…a human hand wearing a ring. Experts have described the findings as “authentic.”

Limited Posts for Next Week or So

The last week or so has been marked by a degree of havoc, due to illness initially and followed up with what was the equivalent of a category 1 or 2 cyclone, which crossed the coast just to the north of where I live. There has been plenty of damage, flooding and extended periods of power outages across a very wide region. What this will mean for my Blogs is that there will be very limited posts over the next week or so. Reasonably normal service will be returned as soon as that is possible.
