Happy Birthday To Us!

WOW! Has it really been a whole year? Yes, it has. Amazing!

One year ago today, we flipped the switch on TFMR. Where has the time gone? Where has my money gone? (Oh yah, JPM took it when MFG failed.)

On 6/14/11, gold was trading around $1525. Back then, some were worried that that level would be a "top". Interestingly, after all we've been through this past year, we now view $1525 as an almost impenetrable floor. Hmmm. What a difference a year makes.

On the other hand, back on 6/14/11 silver was trading near $35. Many of us would take that right now. Oh well, just have a little patience and we will be there again soon.

We're giving away a couple of hats today. Four weeks ago, we began contests for the most accurate predictions of Comex closing price today for both silver and gold. Let's give away two more! At 1:30 pm EDT today, what will be the total number of pageviews for this site over the past year AND what will be the total number of "unique visitors", as measured by google? Please use the comments section to enter your guesses. I'll begin a new thread this afternoon where we'll announce the winners.

Until then, have a great day. I see that The Wicked Witch decided to mark our anniversary by sending us a gift, unabomber-style. She seems intent upon keeping the price of silver under $29. I wonder why? Anyway, I hope you have a fun day. Check back in a few hours for that new thread. TF

Awesome

Congratulations, Turd and all Turdites.

I was led over here from ZeroHedge, which I discovered while reading Seeking Alpha, to the old blogspot site, during my red pill 'awakening' of 2008.

I cannot express how valuable this community has been to me. Even more so than the preparations, education, and price entry point analysis has been the support and encouragement, and sometimes tether to sanity, this place has been.

May your hat tips runneth over and all our precious be priced true to market.

Congrats, TF!!

A year, already? Been lurking since day one (on the old blog site) & figured it's time to finally register. Next stop -- hitting the tip jar.

Super! Happy birthday!

Silver down: perhaps pre-emptive strike?
I get the feeling that they are defending the 29 USD/ounce level like heck.

Thanks Turd

I've been following a lot of different sites over the years (LeMetropole Financial Sense and many more), but this is home. Not only does our Mayor provide up to the minute analysis, commentary and superb interviews, poking around inside the heads of Jim Willie and the like, but the contributions of fellow Turdites are priceless and unlike any other site anywhere else. TFMR IS THE BOMB!

Happy Birthday Mayor Turd. Thank you for a great year. It's just the start!
