Do you Think There Might Be Gold in the Philippines?

Scubba driving for gold?
Naw, that's not an underwater metal detector!

I got blindsided last night by my youngest son. (Yeah, for those of you who know him, that's Matt) He called to say that his company is sending him to the Philippines to help train some classes there for AT&T. Exciting and golden opportunity for him, yes. But here's the kicker.......he is leaving Nov. 3rd......and he won't be back until the middle of February. Yup, he'll miss Thanksgiving, Christmas AND his birthday with us. He was more astounded by that than I was, and I told him that life doesn't always give you opportunities on your terms....that it takes you somewhere and you just have to go regardless of whether the timing is convenient for you or not. So, he is getting his passport, and shots, and trying to figure out what to pack and what to wear, and how to pay his bills while he is gone. Fortunately he will be there during the drier and cooler? part of the tropical year. Humidty in the 90's and he's used to Colorado and Arizona. What a change!

Gold is down today at $730 right now!!!!! Are you still finding gold? We are still finding a little bit, but not much.

Good Prospecting to You,
