Back in the Saddle
I've returned to the USA from a few days in Dublin, Ireland ... bringing home a bottle of a Jameson's finest Irish Whiskey, viz., a blend of its rarest and finest whiskies purchased in the duty-free shop in Dublin Airport. Dublin is a fine city to visit, very walkable with plenty of history and art. A taxi was required just once for the trip to the Guinness Storehouse for a tour showing how that fine product is made ... and a fresh pint of draught in the circular, glass-windowed bar on top of the factory. The Jameson Distillery exhibit was also worth the trip - very informative ... and tasty.
I'll write more about Dublin, the history of Ireland and its meaning for Americans later this week.
Ms. Market took a break from dancing on the tables and is resting awhile in a chair. Silver and gold also dropped significantly. Hmmm ... both events occurred just after Krypto sold lots of silver and lots of stocks. Perhaps certain doubters should re-assess their opinions of Krypto as an asset allocation whiz?
