$1500 an ounce???

"Oh accursed hunger of gold, to what dost thou not compel human hearts!"

Part of the Stamp Mill in Bodie, CA...

As near as I can figure, gold is about $1500 an ounce these days...
Perhaps the State of California could climb up out of the economic hole
we're in if we just started mining here again!!!

    I think you can save the badge to your computer by holding down the left button while you drag the mouse over the badge then right click. After that just add it to your side bar with the Blogger picture gadget in the Design tab.
