And again, gold goes up, gold goes down. Silver goes up, silver goes down. It’s like a yoyo. I only know, I enjoy my silver and gold coins. The value will be what it is.
Like life, it has its ups and downs. Look at the big picture and follow the long term trends. Oops, you did it again…
I look at it this way, how much silver is in your safety deposit box?

Unfortunately, I don’t think you have anything to worry about 🙁
Send that man some gold foil chocolates!

SENZA, you’re a Pro, Bro
Antonio 2020 was the Golden year for selling that stuff from outer space – right now is the best time to just admire what you have – and that’s another FIRST ON THREAD victory P.S. Turn this S__ Up Loud https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApHM1ct4tdM
I’m an old man, I have to turn EVERYTHING Up Loud just to hear it.

I have tinnitus, all I hear is ringing.
I have that annoying issue too – I even asked a doctor about it and he dodged the question.
I have read that it’s a major side or after effect of the COVID but have no idea how credible that information is.
I’ve had it for years, long before COVID. I noticed it when I was in the Army but I may have had it before and my service only aggravated it.

I had a higher mass this morning. I was sure to flush it down.
Always flush twice –

For fear of offending anyone, I’m an egalitarian, we’re all No. 1. 🙂
Russia could learn from that.
Thank you Sir Kaiser,
Meme’s are proof of alternate universes –
if you go to Reddit you can see people (memetards) posting jpg images from 20 years ago and calling them memes and saying they created something new and unique
