Loved ones in critical condition is an ordeal you wouldn’t wish on anyone.  Best wishes for your wife, and strength for you.

That’s good you heard from him and he’s having fun. A person I know in Texas says after some sun they will probably get hit with more rain and flooding. They still haven’t cleaned out all the drains from Harvey nor did they pay all the claims. I guess insurance companies pulled out and its state run or something
And still haven’t paid many people.

if you want to try a treat with your breakfast coffee make some TOCINO (filipino bacon variant)

get a nice big boston butt (8-10 lb) cut the bone out of it and slice it.  try for 1/4 inch slices.  you’ll do better the second time, and the third time you’ll be good at it.  don’t worry, neatness doesn’t count for much.  set this aside and mix together in a large (you’ll need a gallon and a half capacity) non metallic container for which you have a lid:

6 cups brown sugar

3 cups pineapple juice (or crushed pineapple)

1 cup anisado  – anise flavored wine (you can use any white wine and a hefty shot of anise extract.)

1 cup soy sauce

1 cup minced garlic

3/4  cup salt

2 tsp cure #1 (#1 prague powder) optional but it will turn out grey when you cook, and won’t keep as long.  ask at a real butcher shop or order on line.

2 tsp MSG (optional)

1 -4 tsp ground hot red pepper (optional).

stir well. add the meat, cover with a tight lid and refrigerate at least 24 hrs, up to 72 hrs.

pull the meat slices out of the marinade and pack in 1-2 lb ziplocks.  it will keep several weeks in the refrigerator, longer in the freezer – about like bacon.

caution, cook slowly to avoid scorching.  it has a higher sugar content than american style bacon.

i made up a batch this afternoon, but i was lazy.  i just got a big family pack of porkchops instead of cutting up a boston butt.

I heard from Farmboy 5 or 6 weeks ago and he was going traveling around to see several states for a month or so.  I believe they are camping and fishing and seeing what TX, LA and some other states have to offer.   Last info I had but I hope he gets back soon because there has been NO COFFEE for quite a while !

A word to the wise from Adam Hamilton

Posted by Alex Valdor @ 17:52 on June 30, 2018  

in a link from his latest newsletter, Zeal Intelligence
(www.ZealLLC.com ) :

” Early summer is the weakest time of the year seasonally for gold, silver, and their miners’ stocks. With traders’ attention diverted to vacations and summer fun, their precious-metals interest and investment demand wane considerably. Thus this entire sector, and often the markets in general, suffer a seasonal lull this time of year. But these summer doldrums offer the best seasonal buying opportunities of the year.

This doldrums term is very apt for gold’s summer predicament. It describes a zone in the world’s oceans surrounding the equator. There hot air is constantly rising, creating long-lived low-pressure areas. They are often calm, with little or no prevailing winds. History is full of accounts of sailing ships getting trapped in this zone for days or even weeks, unable to make any headway. The doldrums were murder on ships’ morale.

Crews had no idea when the winds would pick up again, while they continued burning through their precious stores of food and drink. Without moving air, the stifling heat and humidity were suffocating on these ships long before air conditioning. Misery and boredom were extreme, leading to fights breaking out and occasional mutinies. Being trapped in the doldrums was viewed with dread, it was a very trying experience.

Gold investors can somewhat relate. Like clockwork nearly every summer, gold starts drifting listlessly sideways. It often can’t make significant progress no matter what the trends looked like heading into June, July, and August. As the days and weeks slowly pass, sentiment deteriorates markedly. Patience is gradually exhausted, supplanted with deep frustration. Plenty of traders capitulate, abandoning ship. “

Aguila – email’s to Farmboy go unanswered

“I know not why any one but a schoolboy in his declamation should whine over the Commonwealth of Rome, which grew great only by the misery of the rest of mankind. The Romans, like others, as soon as they grew rich, grew corrupt; and in their corruption sold the lives and freedoms of themselves, and of one another.”

Samuel Johnson

I think we may bounce from here so probably a good buy on your part.

Appreciate the kind words.

The $16.20 didn’t stop the decline but it closed at $16.10 on Friday. I bought the phiz so I am still dollar cost averaging my insurance. Worldwide debt keeps climbing and I am still buying phiz. “The trend is your friend, until the end.” I have to believe we are a lot closer to the end rather than the beginning.

Buygold, I hope things are better for your family.

Its so quiet here I could probably hear Farmboy easing through the woods

Posted by Aguila @ 11:19 on June 30, 2018  

Where is Farmboy anyway?
