Good Day… And a Wonderful Wednesday to you! The second song I ever learned on my guitar was Apples, Peaches, Pumpkin Pie, by Jay and the Techniques, and that’s the song that greets me this morning! The first song I ever learned was Hey There Little Red Riding Hood… You have to remember that this was 1966, when I first held a guitar, and my good friend, and half-brother, because he lived with us most of the time, Frank Weiler, taught me some chords, and before long, I was listening to records and picking up the music so we could play the song in our band… That was 50 years ago! Can you believe that? 7 years later, I was traveling around the country in VW micro-bus playing my guitar for people that wanted to hear me play and sing… That was a magical time in my life… But it didn’t last long, and poof! It was over!
Well, that was some intro today, eh? I saw a video from the Stansberry Research Conference in Las Vegas last week, where my guitar playing friend, and investment analyst, guru, Steve Sjuggerud played his guitar for the audience… Pretty cool, Steve! Brought back memories, for sure! But enough of all that! This is a letter about currencies, metals, economies and dolts, right? Well, get to work Chuck!
