Canada Selling Part of Its Gold Reserves

by Martin Armstrong

Governments everywhere are going broke. Despite what people think, gold may yet make new record lows under $1,000 in the months ahead. Canada has sold off a piece of its gold reserve into this rally. There is NO intention of returning to a gold standard. They are moving fully electronic and intend to eliminate cash everywhere. In so doing, the “official” view behind the curtain is that they no longer need gold.

     I finally got rid of all my old VCR tapes. They start to degrade after so many years. Imagine, saving all those old movies and TV shows. What was I thinking? Now I guess I've made myself space for some other junk.
     I need a new strap for my Fitbit. This one is falling apart, but I don't think a new strap will solve my problem. A piece of plastic has broken off one end so I won't be able to secure the new strap. Need to think out of the box on this one. Have to figure something out. The bottom line is, I hate the strap.

Dual Citizenship

     While I was in the R.C.A.F, I was for a short time stationed in Sardinia, an island off Italy. It was an air force base for Italians, Germans and Canadians. One evening, a few of us went to a club on the Italian side. While sitting there, a guy came up and told us a memorable story. He was actually a Canadian, who went to Italy to visit his Grandparents. While there, the government grabbed him and shoved him into the Air Force. The surprise and price of dual citizenship.

Snow Storm

Well, we had our big snow storm on Sat. The forecast was for 16 ins. starting at 10 am. As I watched the weather map on T.V, I saw that there was snow all around us, while we were in a long stripe of no snow. As it turned out, the snow didn't start falling until 5 pm. Seven hours of no snow made a big difference. Around us did get the18 ins. We received a lot less snow, but the high winds did kick up some small snow banks.

Raisin Bran

I had Raisin Bran for breakfast the other day. On the box it read that there were hundreds of raisins in every box. I'm not trying to doubt Kellogg, but hundreds of raisins? I wonder how they figure that out, drop 200 raisins in the bottom of the box? Well, I'm not going to empty the box and count them. I'll just have to take their word for it. Can you take the word of a Cooperation?

Horatio Hornblower

Watched an old movie the other day. Horatio Hornblower. When I was young, I thought this was an actual sailor. Never read any of those books. Must rectify that.
