Gold Part II

 

Over the weekend I was talking about how it’s my belief that Bitcoin was launched as an alternative to gold and silver. But, it was launched by the globalist elites, not some hermit Japanese guy who wanted to save humanity.

Gold, Silver, Bitcoin and You
 
If you’re a metals investor, you know that things have been rough. Really really rough. For well over a decade we had the metals nailed almost as well as you can nail them. Initially investing in gold in 2000-2001, we rode it from 293 dollars an ounce to 1900 an ounce in 2011.
 
Along the way, we made some interesting investments in Silver. Beginning in 2006/07 we rode silver from under 10 to just shy of 50. Then there was the “Vegas plays”. The first one, using options on silver miners, turned 30K into 1.2 million. The second one turned 19K into 244,000 at the peak.

Technology
 
Truly not a day goes by where something "techy" doesn't catch my eye and make me marvel at it.  While I find some of it nothing but a waste of time ( like aps that let you put bunny ears on your selfie) others are so impressive, that I wonder how you could live without it.
 
This came to light recently for me when we were given a loaner car while ours was in for service. The vehicle they gave me had an option called "blind spot monitor" on it. While this has been around for a while, I'd never been in a car that had it. Even our 2015 Lexus didn't have it.

Hope for the Best
 
I’ve said this a few times in various newsletters of the past.  The fact is, that your entire existence is reliant on other people. Without the drilling, there’s no oil, no gas. Without the electric company, there’s no power. Without the farmers, there’s no food. Without the town/county most would have no water. On and on it goes. Where would you get rope or a rubber band, or a piece of wire, or a new knife, if “someone else” didn’t make it? While you seem to be independent, you are connected to the system at the hip.  We’re like one huge organism, and each part of it interacts with other parts to keep the whole thing alive.

Battery Profits

 

On Wednesday I wrote an introduction into the electric car space, and of course hit on solar, and the various gadgets that we use, all of which need batteries. Batteries are the single most important feature of an electric vehicle ( EV from here out) and battery life, is also one of the more important issues when buying say a laptop. ( or cell phone for that matter)

Electric Vehicles

 

This is going to be part one of a two part article about EV’s. Love them, hate them, or ignore them, they’re here to stay. But, there’s so much to the story that most people aren’t thinking about, that maybe there’s some way to capitalize on this growth.  As always, the issue is “storage” meaning batteries, and it’s the stuff in the batteries that is getting hard to find.  So, let’s get through some of softball stuff fist.

At The End of The Day
 
Over the years I’ve been asked about Bitcoin many times. For the most part my answer to it has remained about the same “at the end of the day, it’s a fiat currency”.  Now to the Bitcoin lovers, I’m just stupid. I have no problem with that. But then, do tell me...what exactly is Bitcoin backed by? Oh, digits “mined” from computer algorithms. In other words, I can’t exchange my Bitcoin for say gold, or silver? No. How about copper or Iron? Nope.

Kimchi

 

Today’s commentary is going to be way way off the normal path. Why? Over the weekend, I got to swapping some recipes with some friends of ours. Then it dawned on me that in 25 years of putting out commentary on just about every topic imaginable, I’ve never put a recipe out.  Or, if I have it’s been so long ago I forgot I did.

 

Anyway, while desperate for the recipe to our friend Karen’s incredible Osso buco recipe, which she sent over Sunday, she asked for one in return. One I didn’t think she’d ever be interested in, caught me off guard. She wrote “Bob, do you know anyone that makes Kimchi?”  Bingo. Yes I do.

The Vape Wars
 
Love them or hate them, “Vaping” or the use of Electronic cigarettes is on the rise. You can see them everywhere.  Well like a lot of things, I have a big opinion on E-cig’s because I am a user. So let’s talk history.
 
The electronic cigarette was invented in 2009 by a pharmacist in China. Looking for a way to deliver the nicotine that users crave, but also making it safer than a regular cigarette, he came up with the original versions. They were bulky, didn’t work well, but it was a start.

Thoughts
 
There’s several ways I could go with tonight’s letter, from poking more holes in the official Vegas shooting story, to commenting about China and Russia’s continued moves to distance themselves from the US dollar.
 
I will go with the shooting for just a brief moment. More and more videos have emerged that prove without a doubt that there were shooters on the grounds, and yet the media continues to follow the official plot of one lone wolf gunman on the 32nd floor.  Now we’re hearing that the shooters home has been “broken into” and they’re going to have to go back to investigate.  Really?
