TFMR Service Interruption

Please take time to listen to this brief podcast.


As discussed in this podcast, it's going to be an unusual week here at TFMR.

Please be sure to monitor the daily events, particularly on Wednesday with the CPI and the release of the March FOMC minutes.

As for Comex digital gold and silver, the areas of support and resistance are pretty easy to spot on these charts:

I'll try to stop by whenever circumstances permit this week. In the meantime, thank you for your patience., understanding and prayers.

Have a great week,

Mom - Today's devotion

I am so sorry for your loss. Praying for you and your family. I thought of you when I read my daily bible promise: When thou passest through the waters, I [will be] with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. (Isaiah 43:2) Reflection Sometimes the pressures of life threaten to overwhelm us and sweep us away like a strong river current. During these times God continues to be with us. He does not leave us to suffer alone. He does not promise to take us out of our trials. But He does promise to be with us and guide us every step of the way! Praise be to the Lord, our great constancy! God Bless brother!

God Bless Your Mom...

She is certainly smiling down on you now Craig!

Keep your head up and find strength from your family.

All of our prayers are with you and yours.

So sorry to hear about your Mom, my young friend.

At my age, it seems like I'm losing old friends right & left. It's never easy. Take strength in the fact that she raised a fine son who shows his love for other human beings in so many different ways. Mama Ferg is smiling down on you, so try to be strong & smile back! And then, party on into the unknown.

Sorry to hear the sad news Craig

My thoughts are with you.

Hi Craig,

If you get a chance listen to Willie Nelson's latest album Last Man Standing. The song " It's not something you get over it's just something you get through" has some nice thoughts for you right now.

Mama Ferg, You and Your Family Are In Our Thoughts and Prayers

My wife and I are so sorry to hear of your loss. I have a good idea what you are going through, as I lost my own mother late last year.

The difficulties that life throws at us, and how we handle these difficulties, makes us the person we are. In your case, I believe that it will make you stronger as well as more determined than ever to count your blessings, cos over the years in Turdville, you have shown yourself to be 'the glass is half full' kind of person.

This is a time for you to focus on family. In your absence Turdville will be cared for by your loyal Turdites.

Like Mama Ferg, I have tried to lead my life on the foundation of 'treat others in the same manner that you would like others to treat you.

Yours aye,

James and Basia

Condolences from 'down under'

So sorry to hear of your mum's passing Craig. Unfortunately, I and others in Turdville have been through the same experience...losing my mother is something I'm glad I only had to go through once. This verse was on her order of service sheet:

Psalm 116:15 - Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints.

I hope you also find comfort in this difficult time for your family.

Kind regards

Sorry for your loss!

You'll be in my prayers. Draw strength from your family and friends as you come together this week. Lean on your Creator, as he has offered comfort for those who mourn.

Apr 8, 2019 - 8:16am

Thanks to everyone

VERY much appreciate all of the thought, prayers and kind words of encouragement.

But please feel free to discuss the "markets", too, as this may be the only thread until Wednesday.

For example, this is nice...though I guess we should wait a few minutes to see what happens once the Comex is back open.

Apr 8, 2019 - 8:30am

And we still have to be able to laugh, too

My condolences to you and the

My condolences to you and the rest of the family. My wife and I will pray for your mother and family in our daily rosary. On the grave of my grandmother and grandfather there is following quote from Scriptures:
"Jesus said to her: I am the resurrection and the life: he that believeth in me, although he be dead, shall live." God bless you Craig.

Apr 8, 2019 - 9:20am


I just heard the news. I didn't see this special podcast was up this weekend. I'm sorry for you and your entire family Craig. Best wishes to you all as you struggle and grieve together this week.

....in His words during this time of need. Celebrate your mom's life - she will remain close to your heart forevermore through fond and cherished memories. Deepest sympathies to you and your family.

Apr 8, 2019 - 10:43am


As everyone has already said, deep condolences to you and your whole family. Hope the planning and the rest of the week go as smoothly as possible. My experience has been this week will keep you very occupied and hopefully not too overwhelmed.

In the weeks and months to come there will be emotional outbursts that come from little things that will effect you. While sad and painful, they exist due to all the good times and memories your family has shared with your mom.

Aw man, I'm sorry Craig

Having written my dad's own eulogy just a few years ago, losing a parent is disorienting, at the least, and heartbreaking at best. As it should be but it's still rough. So sorry to hear she passed, Craig. But as you said, at least it was in her sleep.

Now I'm sure she is already looking down on her progeny with pride, and especially her son with the funny pseudonym. I like the hen Cardinal you posted, must have been a favorite of hers. You'll probably smile a bit differently now every time you see one. I still lift my head every time now when a flight of geese is overhead or I hear that distinctive honk in the distance, they always make me recall my dad now. Take this time with your family to celebrate and remember her. You will hold those memories of her like the light of a candle in the years ahead. Something you take out to light the way when things are darkest and are all the more grateful for having them. Something that gives you strength, for though you feel the loss you remember the love and it keeps you keeping on. From your accounts of her, she seemed like a great lady so I'm sure you will have many lights to hold on to. God Bless her and God Bless you, Craig.
