Why Buy Gold?

If I were to ask you to buy gold as an investment, you'd probably ask me why. Many people aren't aware of buying gold or silver as a form of investment for the future, it is not as widely known as compared to real estate or buying shares. But think about it for a moment - gold has been held in the highest regard since the dawn of civilization by the ancients like the Chinese, Egyptians and Greeks.

It has been used as jewelry, ornaments, for idols, and everything that is held in high regard.

Now you can buy gold bullion as in investment to its rising price with the help of the experts at United States Gold Bureau. They have the experience and expertise to help you make wise investment choices.

I H8 Roaches

Man, I hate roaches. My wife hates them even more, but i'm the one that has to kill them each time one of them strolls onto the toilet or kitchen floor.

Some crawl, some fly, some are tiny ones that run like mice. Either way, the best thing to do is to slap them down with a rolled up newspaper. Then starts the second process of cleaning up the icky brown innards and juice from the critters.

I read somewhere that these insects can survive a nuclear holocaust. How do these people know? Did they re-create a mini mushroom cloud in a lab with a few cockroaches? I dunno.

Maybe they should spend more time developing a device to rid my house of them critters more efficiently, once and for all.

Gold Coins

I'm this rather new Facebook game called Frontierville, which is a bit like the more established Farmville but set in a Wild West frontier setting. Although the gold doesn't feature gold prospecting as an element in the game, gold features quite prominently as a form of currency, just like it did in real life.

When you need to buy something in the game, gold coins are used. One gold coin doesn't get you much, but in real life, a gold coin can REALLY get you a lot of stuff. Gold is the highest standard by which we compare everything else in terms of beauty, value and quality. Take the phrase 'gold standard', for instance.

You can buy gold coins as a form of solid investment because the price is increasing all the time.

I Love Mahjong

Man, i love mahjong. My family used to play a lot of it when i was younger, and my in-laws still play it on a weekly basis. I don't get to play all that often, seeing that it's not easy to find three other likeminded people with time on their schedule, so i usually play the computer version.

It's not the same, but it helps that i can still play. The version i have on my pc is the hong kong style, which is different in the method of counting and scoring. But no matter, the basics are the same. Game on.


Remember that old James Bond movie starring the efferverscent Roger Moore? I definitely remember it. It was a little camp by today's action movie standards, but it was still enjoyable fun all around.

The scene that struck me the most (other than the girl covered in gold paint) was the scene in Goldfinger's vault, it was filled with gold bars and coins, portraying how rich he was. But that's how it is, isn't it? The ultimate sign of affluency is gold, whether it is in bullion or it is just a little bit on your ring finger.

But make no mistake, gold remains a solid investment in good and bad times. United States Gold Bureau are the right people to help you seek out a suitable investment in gold and silver.

Accutane and the Side Effects

One of the more popular dermatological drugs out there today is Isotretinoin, or as it is more popularly known by its trade name Accutane. Maybe its a result of a growing consciousness on personal beauty or whatever, there are plenty of drugs out there that contain Accutane.

But just any or other drug, Accutane has its good and side effects. Good effects - thats pretty obvious, you get your acne cured. But there are a host of adverse side effects encountered before, in some cases inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease, or ulcerative colitis. So if you have encountered these health problems and you suspect it is because of Accutane, please seek legal help for a possibility of a Accutane lawsuit to protect your own interests.

Falling Down

Took me more than 90 minutes to get to work today. The trip usually takes less than an hour, but with the early morning rain and the mini-floods, the city has ground to a standstill. City Hall always asserts that ‘every city has this problem’ but I think it isn’t a good excuse. If there is no room for improvement and everything is running efficiently, I can understand that. But sometimes these floods are due to poor maintenance and rubbish choking the rivers - stuff that can be mitigated easily.

So don’t sit back and do nothing while giving us excuses.

I think the residents our good city along with those that stay in the surrounding suburbs have more or less become numb to these problems, and simply putting up with it and where possible working around the problems.

But every so often, when push comes to shove, things will come to a head. Reminds me of Michael Douglas in 'Falling Down'.
