Wales didn't play well but neither did the Portugese. Wales will be kicking themselves this morning because if they'd just played as they'd done n the previous matches they could easily have been in the final. They have to be proud though and this could be the springboard to better things and the world cup in Brazil beckons for them.
Gary circone (looks like in Sarasota) criticizes the CEO here relentlessly and yet he may have this in his gene pool. Interesting video of the sting operation.
There is something seriously wrong at Vista. They completely messed up the last bull market in gold 5 years ago, with trying to get a permit in Mexico, wasted years and millions of dollars of share holders money. Now here we are 5 years later, smack bang in the middle of another rip roaring gold bull market, with gold up over $300 this year already and still no permit for Mt Todd. The last time I spoke with the CEO he said they hope to be able to submit the latest documents/testing results by the end of 3Q. This could be another Paredones Amarillos, another failed attempt at obtaining a permit.
Something stinks, massive sell off in pre-market today, no news, but the market clearly thinks VGZ cannot get this permit. They have been trying for years but a bloody bird - Gouldain Finch - is stopping the progress!
This could be another bull market where VGZ fails to deliver. I'd say the company is probably on its last legs if it cannot secure the permit this yr. They have no other properties of any real value.
Sentiment: Strong Sell
Man U have made a cracking start with the new players and Pogba looks class. They've only played mediocre teams up to now but if they play like they've been doing against Chelsea or Man City then I think it's going to be a great season for them. It's a pity Ibrahamovic is getting a bit old now but I can see him being like Cantona and having a fantastic end of career at Man U and ending up a hero.
The olympics have been absolutely fantastic. Can't believe I'm saying this but did you see the womens hockey last night? It was nearly as good as the 1966 world cup final. lolol. A typical British underdog team against the favourites of Holland and we just wouldn't give in. Brought a tear to me eye at the end when we beat them on penalties. lol The whole olympics for the British has been great with some astonishing performances coming out of nowhere. Just people going the extra mile to get a medal. Reminds me. That 58 year old bloke winning gold with the dressage horse has inspired me. I've got my exercise bike out in the living room and am going to make a bid for gold in the cycling at the Japan olympics in 2020. lolol. End of an era with Usain Bolt but like you say, they're a nation of runners so someone will replace him one day. I saw a documentary about why they're so good at sports and they start them off when they're 5 year old at school. Everyone does sport and they find out who's best at what and then channel them down that route. It's what we should be doing but 5 year olds these days are too busy on their play stations or boozing it up. I couldn't believe seeing a report last week saying that parents in this country let their 5 year olds drink alcohol. Madness.
I watched Stewart Lee when you mentioned him before and he is quite funny. One of the better modern comedians. Can't say that of John Bishop. Dear me, he's just dire. My big toe is funnier than him. Actually, it is funnier than him. I've got a right dodgy big toe. lolol
JohnC/vette ... to the rescue of blackmoron... very sad.
Yesterday Geron was up 9% and the market was up 1.7%. Today the market was up 1.7% .. so Geron has outperformed 3.4% to 9%
I think we got a bit carried away with thinking Iceland were better than they actually were. lol. They've done well but were always going to be found out at some point by a bigger team (England not included as a bigger team). Still, they've scored 2 against France and they will be proud of that.
Jambalaya is lovely but not on my healthy eating list, although there's nothing in it that's unhealthy (I've just hunted out the recipe I have).. I'm keeping everything simple with veg, plain meat, veg and fruit plus fruit juices and my favourite, tomato juice. I eat a lot of cabbage leaves, turnip leaves, beetroot leaves. Beetroot leaves are lovely fried in margerine with a bit of garlic thrown in. I have to be careful taking the leaves off my growing beetroot and can only take a few off each plant or the beetroot won't grow. Same with the turnip leaves.
Wish we had someone like Bale in the England team. He's just class and skips past people with ease. He;s got 3 people marking him and he still gets away from them somehow.
Of coarse they are trying to beat cytr up. They are in on short side just like they were part of the debacle against DNDN. Shady sons of #$%$ but legal and very lucrative.
