There is no plan, Stan

Do I plan my blogs?

The short answer is that I do not.

I just go where the current of the hobby river seems to take me. Sometimes I resist the current and say so.

Gold has been a much covered topic in the past couple of years here, but I cannot be all gold all the time as investment advisory letters have the option of doing.

I have been interested in gold since Charles de Gaulle tried to run the dollar by demanding gold payment in 1968. It redounded against the French president when he was forced to devalue the French franc.

I remember paying $7 each for British sovereigns. Wow, I must be old.

In short, for  me, gold is an eternally interesting topic. It is timely almost any time and it is sure to generate good reader interest as long as it is part of a variety of topics over the course of my week and month.

This week it was hard to miss the timely nature of the precious metal.

However, at this moment, that’s enough. I have no idea what I am going to write on Monday.

    Well, at close today, the ratio between gold and silver is 1

    to 72. Seems out of place, to me. They are hawking gold sales

    hourly on the radio. Like the old adage, "when they’re buying,

    sell it to them.

    Your right; gold is an interesting topic. It’s just that the periodical focuses a little too much on rare coinage and the like. {Not that that’s bad} Why not get your gold experts to share some of the basics of gold (and silver) with us; where its most commonly mined, reserves in the earth and Fort Knox, why it’s a rare metal, is there any left in the USA; some basic information about gold we may not be aware of. Thanks, lets make Numismatic News a little more information friendly.
