Glad to see travelling in hostile territory hasn't affected your effect...or whatever.

Re: Hey Queen Martha

Part 2: Rothbard & Gweneth Hook Up

Rothbard depleted himself and fell back exhausted onto the cool stone floor, landing on his fanny, and almost immediately started snoozing. Gweneth, who had been tracing the golden thread with her two index fingers, moved them in ever larger spirals along the paisley edges. The lightning flashed outside, and there, in the middle of the duvet, she caught a glimpse of something silvery, almost opalescent and fiery. She lifted one knee to the bed, then drew her other leg up slowly and tucked it under her in a parallel juxtapose as she stretched and leaned forward to look and to learn. The lightning flashed again, with the flickering light passing through the clear center lens of the stained glass window onto columnular runic letters and the outline of Rothbard’s family crest. In the flickering shadows her skin looked creamy as the light worked its way across her back and down her thighs--but still her skin was becoming slightly paler as the blood rushed to her . . . um . . . elsewhere brain. She crawled forward to the center of the bed on all fours, her back arched up in anticipation of the next lightning bolt and a union between that flash of energy and the reflection off those platinum-like runic letters. She waited with her head tilted forward, her chin, cheeks, and lips tense with anticipation. Snap! Crackle! Pop! “Oh, ohhh, ohhhhh, ahhhhhhhhhhhh” said Gweneth, “Buy precious metals—tomorrow,” the family motto. “I wonder if I should buy hedged or unhedged miners?,” thought Gweneth, “maybe I’ll just buy the physical instead.”

--Rothbard's BIGGER, BETTER brother

So you see, Wahoo, this is what happens to me when I spend too much time at this forum.

I think I see where this is going. It's an old fashioned cereal serial! Can't wait for part 3.

An adult one at that! Gweneth "gets the shaft" while Rothbard "mines for gold". Greg, you are truly a master of the double entendre.

Re: Hey Queen Martha

Even I'm afraid to start Part 3. It involves me, my brother Rothbard, and my crazy uncle---oh, yes, and Gweneth--a foursome.

My evil Uncle 401K-bard------------------------------------> . He uses tax free money as a lubricant.

Woah hoah, "mon waxing" Seriously, precious metals have really fluffed up my nest a bit. What other commodities are movers?

Pick an industrial metal, any industrial metal. Sugar has blown the doors off lately. Coffee was way up last year. Most of the grains haven't done much, but it wouldn't shock me if corn shoots the moon on ethanol demand.

He is referring to "mons waxing". As in Brazilian Strip. Attractive part time job.

Brewer: I should agree with you about the importance of owning a general commodity fund. But I view things slightly differently: Of course, some of the price rises in the commodities you mentioned are probably due to poor harvests or higher demand (in China?), but my guess is that a fair proportion of that rise may be due to oil price increases--the additional costs of fertilizers and bringing product to market. That's why my preference is to stick with oil and gas companies that have decent reserves, especially domestic reserves. Oil will push the price of corn and sugar higher, but I'd rather own the source of the push rather than catch the consequences on the other end. I mostly watch gold, oil & gas--and bonds . I limit my diversity, but tend to the eggs a little more carefully. Works pretty well--sometimes. I still see oil in a bubble that is just resting a while for the summer. Ag commodities will always respond to fuel costs and money pumping and wages and politics and . . . .demand too. Because of that I don't like playing agriculture commodity stocks such as BG. NEM, the gold mining stock, was in a bit of a pinch last year because rising oil prices increased their cost of mining gold. Owning oil (or in my case, natural gas stocks) hedges a bit of that risk.

As always I hope all goes well.
