I have never said there is not climate change and I have always said that humans have an impact on it but too many argue that it is only human activity and that is patently false.
Magellan pipeline from Magellan wells? Didn't think so. The fact is, avi, you would clearly prefer no type of fossil fuel ever be used in the U.S.
And you my friend would know about soft-core given the time you are on the computer.
You should know that a condition book is no guarantee of the races that will actually run. As a syndicate, we would like our horse to be running for about 12000-14000 dollar purses at 6 to 6.5f for a tag of 12000 but we cannot always get what we want. But, quite frankly, drloven, I don't give a rip about your so called California runners unless you are willing to prove you actually have some shares in them.
BTW, perhaps you could share the names of all your runners and when they are entered so that I may look up their records also. Last I looked, training and stabling is about twice as expensive in California so I hope you are taking that into account along with the bigger purses you get in northern California. Of course, to do that, you would have to reveal you real name so your ownership could be verified as well. Are you in?
In other words, she is being edged out by the top 1/8 of the horses at Emerald. You know perfectly well that the vast majority of people who buy small shares in horses do it for the fun and to learn some things knowing they will not be part of a syndicate owning a piece of California Chrome or American Pharoah. So perhaps you should jump off your high horse and tell us how many losers you have been involved with compared to the number of races you have won. Ms P is doing just fine and, if I were you, I would be getting my money out to bet on her in the next race in a couple of weeks. I am sure TVG could handle your wager. Incidentally, a lot of your so called Cali monsters have gotten their #$%$ kicked in the Longacres Mile.
Wow, you actually looked up some information. Too bad you did not put your money where your mouth is as you would have tripled your stake for a place bet. 6.40 on a 2.00 wager or you could have doubled it for a show bet with a 4.20 payoff on a 2.00 bet. Heck, that would have paid for some of the electricity you use pounding on your keyboard all day. Since both second place finishes this year have been to Kentucky bred runners, I would say she is doing all right and will be looking to have her improve on her 6 in the money finishes in 14 lifetime starts. Better get your money ready appendage to the One.
2nd place on Sunday at Emerald Downs. If you are talking about the Preakness, that was Saturday. Two seconds in a row now this year against pretty good competition at least for the northwest. In both races, it has been a Kentucky bred which beat her and in both cases it was in the stretch. Fun distraction from other issues.
We have a declared drought now in WA state with snow packs virtually gone compared to averages for the last few decades. 5 years ago we were over 100% of normal. 5 years before that we had large shortages and 5 years before that we had well over the averages. Not going to be a good year this year for agriculture with losses of over 1 billion dollars predicted for state orchardists and farmers.
Might be worth a wager for a show bet avi. Might distract you from Magellan for a bit and give the rest of us a bit of peace. HO HO HO.
If it does not have to be oil and you are willing to look at stocks around 9 dollars a share, take a look at CYAN. I have made a couple of doubles to quadruples on this one but it is certainly not for everyone as it is a small company.
I would guess that banker has already had some explaining to do even before the Magellan issue as I doubt that bank restricted itself to the Magellan issue.
Current share price is about 11 cents U.S. or about 1/3 of the value we originally had for our 11 percent (?) interest in Central. If we have 11% and could sell it as a block I would guess we would get substantially less than 11 cents per share. So, for giggles, let's say we get 6 cents a share for our 40 million shares. That is about 2 months run rate at Poplar or enough to perhaps hold the Weald shares with Celtique. Neither answers the question of how does Magellan stay in business. I really doubt they have a Bonaparte partner lined up. I am not even sure they could sell interests in the Weald at anything approaching adequate value. So, as I said in an earlier post, we are in danger of remaining a going concern for much longer. I hate being a Debbie Downer about this but....
Magellan is more than knee deep in trouble and, while it does not say so directly, I would guess the ability of the company to continue functioning is very much at risk. I would guess cash on hand will disappear within 3 months and then, absent sale of Central Petroleum shares or a partner in the Bonaparte Basin or sale of Weald properties (Celtique cash call hurts here) or even partial sale of Poplar, the company could well be kaput. Would not surprise me to see us sink into the 20 cent range after this report even though most shareholders must certainly have expected this type of news.
Which, one would think, would make the Aussie weaker compared to the dollar but the dollar has declined a bit more rapidly so the exchange rate actually strengthened for the Aussie. Aussie was worth about 76 cents US a couple weeks ago and is now 80 cents.
Also, avi, why are you so silent on the UK elections and today's upgrade at Horse Hill?
