    Had read about a massive scam... Why the price of gold has skyrocketed... I don't know, and have lower than average intelligence.
    Gold Bar (1 Kilo) Filled With Tungsten Found in UK | www.goldcore.com ...article written in March...Had heard about this scam previously....for a huge amount that wasn't detected until transferred. Wish I could find original article.

    Canadian Tire Money for some cheese. We love cheese...Not the kind in a can. Has to be old cheddar...I could arrange every denomination for 1 pound aged cheddar....Then we'll need a mule...

    Aboot 3.5 hrs. ...Coming this way?...
    You should see Frank Slide : Frank Slide Interpretive Centre ..Visit the Rum Runner in Coleman. Nice view. Owner is hot..Good story about how an RCMP officer was gunned down back in the day...I put the alarm in there. Someone tried to burn it down, and the motions detected the heat, panel dialed out to owner-he didn't want to pay for monitoring- and saved it from burning to a crisp...thank you thank you.
    Also Head Smashed In :Head-Smashed-In Buffalo Jump World Heritage Site which is near historic Ft Macleod http://www.fortmacleod.com ...30 minutes East and you'd get a free BBQ at my house in Lethbridge Lethbridge - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
    My great grandpappy helped build the Prince of Wales Hotel in Waterton.http://www.nationalparkreservations.com/glacier_princewales.php...Hollywood stars -Bogart/ Monroe etc seemed to like it there a lot...Some easy trails to climb....I put the fire alarm dialer in there as well...BD1 honeymooned there in the 70's -not sure- or after he retired, ask him. There still may be a whiff of Old Spice still lingering....Cardston and its' temple Cardston Alberta LDS (Mormon) Temple which is relevant because y'all may have a Mormon president soon-really?.. I used to jump from Beaver Mines falls:Beaver Mines Lake Campground Details - Alberta Provincial Recreation Area
    ETC...Let me know, I'll plan a great VAC for you brother.

    They can make diamonds and rubies too...the real thing hasn’t devalued...it’s a conspiracy for sure, but not by the governments but by marketing companies and people themselves.

    So if everybody is in on it, is it still a conspiracy?

    One person's conspiracy is another person's marketing plan
