Precious Metals Prices...

Because of the huge increases in the market and now having restocked my metals, I am having to reflect it in the stock on the site...lets blame the American housing crisis...

When I work, I have no concept of time.

I like to watch in the field him on the days he IS able to go out, how happy he is to be out of confinement . Yesterday - SNOW - well, we woke up to a light dusting . Even better than snow are the emerging snowdrops in the garden.
