Career Day

Recently, at an elementary school, they had "career day".....where the children were asked to draw a picture of their parent at work.

One little girl turned in this.....

Yeah, I know! What is this world coming to???

Later in the week, the children were able to take their graded drawings home (in case their parents were hoarders that wanted to keep every last stitch of paper their kid had ever written/drawn/created.)

The following day, the little girl brought this note to her teacher:

Dear Ms. Davis,

I want to be perfectly clear on my child's homework illustration. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint surrounded by male customers with money. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This drawing is of me selling a shovel.



Now, some of you might be saying, "HEY! I already read that story on
Grandma J's website!! "

And to that I would say....yeah, you did. One of the perks of being family, is borrowing things. Like, if Grandma J had some really cute shoes, or a big pair of 3 carat diamond earrings, it would be totally cool if I borrowed them, even without asking, because we are family, and that's how we roll.

Where's my earrings?

In addition, it appears that uranium prices have declined.  With a goodly number of uranium fuelled power plants both being build and in the design stages, this is rather curious.  Sooner or later, there will be a strong demand for uranium.  This demand may be a few years hence but the fact remains that uranium fuelled power plants will stretch uranium demand and again long term, uranium demand will increase markedly.  I have small investments in Cameco (CCJ) and UEX Corporation (ECXCF). Many of these scrappers look for precious pure metals, such as aluminium, copper, silver and gold and ferrous and non ferrous metals. Most of the early wine produced in the Sierra Foothills was made with mission grapes.
