Long term buyer and holder of silver. I still have silver from when it used to be the actual US money- when it had intrinsic value. I plan to hold it and hopefully accumulate more. Began investing and charting on paper in the late 1980's (hey, a computer cost $5000 then). On Gold: it's not that I am such a die-hard gold bug, it's more that I'm a big government and Federal Reserve pessimist and realist. The 10 cent candy bars I used to buy after school in 1961 when I was 10 now cost about $1.50. I have lived through the 90% decline of the Dollar. Thank you Federal Reserve.
I am a cabinetmaker, working for Clair Global Enterprises. We produce audio equipment for use in large scale venues around the world. I'm close to retirement. but still love to play the market.

No interest in get rich quick crap, Long term strategy, to preserve generational wealth, until real stability returns to the global banking sector.
Retired from 30+ years in the Bureau of Land Management (BLM), a tiny little subsidiary of the US Department of the Interior. Was a wildlife (mostly fisheries) biologist and then as a Natural Resource Specialist for the oil and gas program. I am now pushing a broom for the elementary school down the block for one school year to qualify for Social Security. Then will retire for good, I hope, unless something more interesting comes along.
