NEWS

Gold’s up, dollars down. Treasury to bail out the auto industry…..temporarily until the new administration can get sworn in. A nice piece to read from Dec. 10th comes from this site http://jsmineset.com/index.php/2008/12/10/hourly-action-in-gold-from-trader-dan-27 .

Everyone must be preoccupied with Christmas, just like me. We are having our family get together tomorrow, ahead of the snow storm coming in on Sunday. I have been in the kitchen all day preparing what needs to get taken to Greeley, and then making sure all the presents are wrapped and tagged. YOU have two more weeks. I get to rest next week while you do your last minute shopping. LOL! Oh, and we found out yesterday that we are going to be grandparents again in August.

Not much new news this week on gold. Even with my google alerts and what I find on the newswires, there isn’t much going on this late in the year. It seems like everyone is just waiting to see what else will happen. Mines continue to scale back and wait for the price of gold to go back up, and plans for new acquisitions are put on hold.

Gold Prospectors of Colorado had their Christmas party this last Wednesday with over 120 in attendance, including three Marines who cam for the good food, the gold draws and the Toys for Tots that members bring in every year. There were two tables full of toys of all kinds, and dinner, of course, was wonderful. We all had a chance to visit about the finds of the last year, and brag a bit about what was and wasn’t found. A very good time with good friends.

Check out www.youtube.com and search for videos on crazy Christmas house lights, or something similar, to find all those postings of houses that have wonderful displays of synchronized lights and music.

Remember, you can get your gold prospecting equipment needs HERE, Clearance HERE, and Monthly Specials HERE.
