  1. Requesting permission to use a photo on my educational blog. it is “A digger at Gath. With 150 workers and a unique array of scientific tools, the dig has become one of the country’s leading excavations (photo credit: Courtesy of the Tell es-Safi/Gath Archaeological Project)” My blog is located on and I am planning the next blog entry on April 1, 2018 entitled Consulting after 50: Your Buried Treasure–using the photo as a metaphor for identifying buried skills.
    Thank you for your consideration.
