Re: Forum Members with COVID-19

Self Quarantine Log 03-26-20 No cough, no fever, no aches or pains, no shortness of breath. Still a bit tired, but that could just be a side effect of living in voluntary house arrest for the last several weeks. This really is getting old. I am so looking forward to just being able to go to a servic...

I think we are in the middle of an at least eight year period where it will be good to be a monarchist.

Self Quarantine Log 03-25-20

Steady improvement now for the last couple of days. Symptoms either gone or so mild as to be noticed only if called to think about them. After close to three weeks of this crap, I'm starting to think that I may at last have turned the corner.

Gold up from below 1500 to 1680 to 1630. Crazy.

Now at 1688. That was a bad year.

Eh. Maybe I'm too superstitious.

Holy smokes. Everything is popping (except bonds). Did somebody announce a cure for the bug overnight and I missed it?

Re: The GOLD scream room

All I know is I'm feeling pretty good about that Krugerand I picked up at $1477. In the present circumstances, I will take my wins where I can.
