Outstanding Case of Gold at the 2007 Tucson Show at the Convention Center
GOLD! Whoa Boy, have you been watching it this morning? If not, take a look at the charts page! While I have been catching up on e-mail, planning tomorrow's newsletter, and making other changes, it has gone from around $856 to over $867 right now at 9:42 a.m.
I have been reading and watching stuff about other mining and rock hounding opportunities around the country, and I gotta tell ya, you should be checking these places out for some fun. Every state has a free or pay for use place where you can find all sorts of metals, gemstones, agates, petrified wood, and fossils. Geology is great fun for everyone, and kids always like diggin' in the dirt. Visit your state's digging areas this weekend if the weather permits, and if not, plan outings for this spring and summer.
The gem and mineral societies around the country are also in full swing planning and putting on gem, mineral, and fossil shows. Attend one for some amazing earth science experiences. The annual monster show in Tucson will be underway in about 3 weeks, too, and will run several shows across the city for about 3 weeks. Hooked on Gold will be there around the 9th through the 15th or so, of Feb. Just in time to see the gold displays in the Convention Center 14th through the 17th. We photographed some amazing pieces of gold last year, and plan to do the same this year. Watch for new pictures in March.
