In late 1979 I was in 8th grade, in Durham New Hampshire. We had just moved there from Newark Delaware a few months before. One of my memories of that time was a discussion that happened in one of my classes about the rising cost of silver- This was the time when "the Hunt brothers" (Nelson and William Hunt) attempted to corner the world market in silver. Prices from Sept 1979 to January 1980 silver prices rose from $11.00 and ounce to $50 an ounce.(and then subsequently dropped back down under $11, where it remained for many years..)



I recall one of my classmates very excited by this because he and his brothers had been given silver stock as a confirmation gift earlier that year. At the time- the rise in prices didn't mean much to me- it only left me with a pang… Continue

deadlines, good bad and ugly.

Well, not really bad..or ugly...and, even though I think deadlines are useful, I'm not sure you could really classify them as good... so, it's established, my title kind of stinks...:-)

Anyhow...There are still a couple of days left for a few important deadlines-

one, we in the US know is that *taxes* thing (which is actually due on the 18th this year..that's 3 more days to procrastinate!)

another thing you may know about is the deadline for VIDEO submissions to the…

Here's Tae Us, And Wha's Like Us? A Perverse Post For Burns' Night!
