Shared gloryMoney can never replace a burning desire to see a vision to fruition.

Remember: Doing, not saying, builds trust.  (Sent a DVD set to Andrew Chambers in Lacome this morning!)

I will, and I am, exercising twice a week.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Must HaveGood morning.
China’s decision to drop its numerous Covid restrictions has led to an outbreak there.  But it’s also leading to the possibility of higher oil prices.  The country has already increased it refiner oil import quotas by 20 percent.  That’s a sign that the country will soon make it easier for its population of over 1 billion to travel internally.
Given China’s size, that modest move higher in oil, combined with the sector’s decision not to heavily reinvest in new exploration and projects in recent years, could allow the space to add to 2022’s already hefty gains.  Traders looking for trades on the long side right now may find it with still-cheap energy stocks.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Sales '21Good morning.
Going into Friday’s job reports, a full 86 percent of market participants queried believed that the Federal Reserve would hike interest rates in March.  Such a move, coming off of last week’s hawkish meeting minutes, would mean going from 0 percent interest rates to 0.25 percent.
While not a huge move, it would be a sign that the economy is performing well and that the job market is getting close to normal.  While the latest jobs numbers had a big miss on Friday, enough jobs were created to drop the unemployment rate down to 3.9 percent.  Sure, the Fed is still winding down its bond buying program, so a March rate hike still sounds a bit aggressive.  But by pricing it in now, the market is getting poised for a bigger move higher in the months ahead.

Cyber Attacks3Rhodium Aiming at USD 10,000/Oz

Oil and gold have rallied amid steaming tension between the United States and Iran.  Crude for forward-month delivery has increased by almost 5% to more than $63 per barrel, while gold has risen by over 3% to more than $1,580 an ounce since news of the Soleimani assassination broke.

But there’s another very special commodity that’s rallying even more while quietly sitting in the background: rhodium.

What is rhodium?

  • Rhodium is a member of a group of metals known as the platinum group metals (PGMs).  These metals have similar physical and chemical properties and include platinum, palladium, ruthenium, iridium, osmium, and rhodium.
  • Rhodium is an important industrial metal used in specialty optical instruments, electronics, aircraft turbine engines, and as a jewelry finish.  If you’ve ever bought “white gold,” it’s likely you’ve bought rhodium.  White gold jewelry is gold jewelry that has been electroplated with rhodium.
  • The primary application for rhodium, however, is catalytic converters – specifically three-way catalytic converters that convert harmful hydrocarbon gases from auto exhaust into substances with lower environmental impact.
  • Rhodium is quite rare.  It’s so rare that an entire year’s worth of total world supply could fit onto the back of three pickup trucks.
  • Some 80% of the world’s rhodium supply comes from South Africa, which has been a problem.

Oh! … and the U.S. Labor Department reported that initial jobless claims fell to 214,000 in the most recent weeks – a 9,000 drop over the 223,000 the prior week.
It’s still a job hunter’s market, south-of-the-border!  😉

The Challenge, of which today is Day #4.

I got a bit crazy yesterday speaking about ‘Hellz Yeah!’ only because that is a big part of me, my time, and my energy.

This my ‘Rob’s Blog’ is about much, much more.  I guess it is to be more about ‘what occurs in the day’ … how those encounters are seen … a W5 of sorts.

I want this focused around Lifestyle.  Holidays, and places to visit.  Family, and how we meet, and overcome every day struggles.  I want to show you, through these daily posts, piles of snow … the birds at the feeder … the Lambo test-drive … the coffee with friends … and of ‘the gratitude given freely’ that goes un-noticed, secretly shared with you!  [not to brag] … but to give proof to everyday random acts of kindness that DO MAKE A DIFFERENCE.  We want to inspire others, like you, to take a moment to breath … smile at circumstances when life has you down … and to be heard, when you speak!  To listen to the faintest of voices, and to know the tears, wiped away, where failure shadows light.  Can we fix everything … ‘Probably Not?’ … but we at least try.  I’ll leave you with this…

I just haven’t been with it!
 
Over two months ago I got a Flu vaccine/shot and have never been quite the same since.  I’ve been to the doctor… with the usual flu symptoms… and sent home to rest.  I believe the flu is gone!
 
In its path of destruction through my body… I believe it has left me with a very uncomfortable gut… excessive bloating resulting in lot of burping and a very uncomfortable upset tummy after eating/drinking different things that I used to enjoy immensely and consume without incident.
 
In talking with others, I’ve been told they too experienced these things resulting in their doctors leaving them with names or tags such as “lactose intolerant” &/or to stay clear “gluten.”  One such person was told, “You are now IBS.”  That is definitely very unpleasant… Irritable Bowel Syndrome.
 
As I work through this, I’ve learned that what you eat now… will not travel through your system at a fixed speed… therefore, it might be an earlier food or drink item that caused the “problem” while its one you just consumed that you now falsely suspect or accuse.  Days can pass before “an item” flares up or causes you the pain.  I now begin to grasp how difficult this might be to unravel when dealing with children, or with individuals speaking different languages.  Please show patience toward us!

What’s your hobby?  I have several & with another day off … I’m about to share a few of my favorites.

I’m home sipping “moringa aleifera appetite suppressant” in my special cup.  This pic to the left is before the cup is filled! Yes, the cup is empty.  But it holds a secret.

I’m about to get a training call from VectorVest.  It’s a stock data service that evaluates the equity markets, the trends, the timing, and the valuation of any stock I wish information on.  [hobby #3]

Two pictures … one before the hot liquid is placed inside the cup … the other after.  I love technology and science … [hobby #2]

I have said on many occasions, and I quote, “I use mult-million dollar satellites to find Tupper-ware in the woods.”  Yes!  I have a thing for geo-caching.  [hobby #1]
