AND DO THE SMART THING

If you buy gold and are tired of geting whipsawed

by price fluctuations that wipe out your profits

perhaps it is time to think differently about yOUR

trading strategy.

First, there are some things to think about that

are not so obvious although the are staring you

in the face every day.

TAXES

OFFSHORE DEAL -- NO TAXES WITHELD

What about the price of gold today ? You can check

the price of gold today 24/7 at a little known

website http://goldfund.x10.mx/7671/

Why should something that is dug out of the ground

be so expensive.....

Well there is more to it than the obvious.

First, gold, when it comes from the mines is not

completely pure and it is about 7000 miles from the

world marketplace.....it does not have a serial

number on it and a chain or custody.

But it is much less expensive....when bought at

the mine level prices...

Is it worth the price differential for the stamp

of approval it gets from the London Metal Exchange

(LME)or the New YORK METAL EXCHANGE (NYMEX)

WELL...YES AND NO.....YES IF YOU HAVE NO WAY TO BUY AT MINE LEVEL PRICES AND HAVE NO GUTS FOR THE PROBLEMS INHERENT IN MOVING THE GOLD FROM MINE TO LONDON OR NEW YORK....

But you pay a big premium for this peace of mind..

BUT IF ANOTHER ALTERNATIVE EXISTS TO AVOID THAT PREMIUM THEN IT MAY BE WORTH THINKING ABOUT BUYING GOLD "OUT OF THE BOX" AT MINE LEVEL PRICES....AS WE DO

NOW THERE IS THE QUESTION OF RISK.

WhAT iS RISK?

RISK IS UNCERTAINTY.....IS THE GOLD REAL?.....CAN I

TRANSPORT IT 7000 MILES?........CAN I SELL IT?..

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO GET PAID"

IS THERE ANY WAY TO LEVEL THE PLAYING FIELD AND PICK UP A VERY LARGE PROFIT FOR ASSUMING SOME OF THOSE RISKS.....AND DO IT RELIABLY, TIME AFTER TIME....

THE ANSWER IS CLEARLY YES.....BY INVESTING WITH A cOMPANY WHO IS DOING IT SUCCESSFULLY....

HERE ARE THE CONSIDERATiONS THAT ARE 'OUT OF THE BOX'

FIRST PROBLEMS

EXPERIENCE IS THE BEST TEACHER BUT THE TUITION IS VERY HIGH.......SO JOIN WITH SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN THERE DONE THAT.......AND GET A FAIR SHARE OF THE PROFITS.

WHAT IS A "FAIR SNARE"

WE THINK A FAIR SHARE IS A 50-50 SPLIT IS A FAIR SHARE MUCH BETTER DEAL THAN BANKS GIVE WITH PUNY INTEREST PAYMENTS OF 2-3 % OR EVEN 10 % AND THE BANKS KEEP 90 %

IS THAT FAIR ?

BANKS THE WORLD OVER THINK IT IS FAIR.....

WE DONT

HOW MUCH PROFIT IS THERE

WELL THERE IS ONE WAY TO BUY IN WITH SAMPLE 5KG SAMPLE PACKS FOR $7,671 WHICH PAYS FOR EXPORT DUTIES, SHIPPING AND INSURANCE.....AND THE GOLD IS PAID FOR AFTER IT IS ASSAYED AND SOLD INTO THE INTERNATIONAL MARKETPLACE...

THE PAYBACK FOR YOUR SHARE IS $60,666.25 SO LONG AS GOLD STAYS AT OR ABOVE $1,250 / TROY OUNCE.

THAT IS A RETURN ON INVESTMENT OF 790 % OR MORE.......DO THE MATH

AND IT GETS EVEN BETTER.

USING THE MAGIC OF COMPOUNDING AND DOING IT JUST 4 TIMES WITH THE VERY HIGH 796 % RATE OF RETURN, YOUR $7,671 BECOMES $26,572,036.50

HERE IS THE MATH

GOLD HAS 32.1507466 TROY OUNCES PER KILOGRAM

IF THE NYMEX SPOT PRICE OF GOLD IS $1,250/TROY OUNCE

GROSS PRICE PER KG = 32.1507466 X $1,1250 = $40,188.93/KG X 90.167 (OUR NET PRICE AFTER ASSAY)

=$36,236.70 OUR GROSS

12,000.00 LESS OUR COST

= 24,236.70 NET PROFIT / KG

X 5 KG

-----------------------

=$121,333.50 GROSS PROFIT/

$60,666.75 YOUR HALF

TURN 1 PROFIT IS $ $60,666.75

$60,666.75 IS A 790.8 % RETURN ON $60,666.75

THIS WILL BUY 7 MORE SAMPLE PACKS WITH SOME CHANGE.

TURN 2 PROFIT IS $ 424,667.25

WILL BUY 55 MORE SAMPLE PACKS

TURN 3 PROFIT IS 55 X $60,666.75 = $3,336,371.25

$3,336,371.25 WILL BUY 438 MORE PACKS

TURN 4 PROFIT ON 438 PACKS IS $26,572,036.50

AND SOME CHANGE

NOW YOU ARE NOT TRADING AND YOU ARE NOT INVESTING IN GOLD MINING STOCKS......BOTH OF WHICH HAVE A LOT OF RISK OF THEIR OWN.

IN THIS CASE, THIS COMPANY BUYS GOLD "IN THE BAG" NOT "IN THE GROUND MAYBE WE HOPE"....THAT REMOVES THE RISK OF A MINING STOCK.......

THEY ADD VALUE BY TAKING THE GOLD TO A REFINERY IN THE US TO BE CERTAIN IT REALLY IS GOLD, SND NOT A BAG OF DIRT, BEFORE THEY PAY....

AND THEY HAVE SOME OTHER SAFEGUARDS BUILT IN....SUCH AS AN AGREEMENT IN SOME CASES TO DEFER PAYMENOF EXPORT DUTIES BY LEAVING SOME OF THE GOLD FOR COLLATERAL WITH A GOVERNMENT REVENUE DEPARTMENAND GETTING SOME CREDIT WITH AN AIRLINE SHIPPING DEPARTMENT FOR SPACE AVAILABLE CARGO......AND WITH LOCAL PEOPLE TO INSPECT THE GOLD BEFORE IT IS ACCEPTED FOR SHIPMENT.....THIS KEEPS THE CON MEN AT BAY.....REMEMBER THIS IS A CASE OF GOLD "IN THE BAG" NOT "GOLD IN THE GROUND YOU HOPE" WHICH IS WHAT YOU BUY WITH MINING STOCKS

AND YOU ARE GETTING INCREDIBLE LEVERAGE THAT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET ANY OTHER WAY.....BOTH BY THE CREDIT EXTENDED BECAUSE THE GOLD IS NOT PAID FOR UNTIL IT IS ASSAYED GIVING AN EFFECTIVE 15:1 LEVERAGE

WHERE DO I FIND IT....THERE IS A WEBSITE AT HTTP//goldfund.X10.MX/7671/

WHERE YOU CAN FIND OUT THE DETAILS....

AND ONE OTHER THING......

YOU CAN PAY BY CREDIT CARD....MASTERCARD, VISA, EISCOVER, AMERICAN EXPRESS.....AND PAYPAL

PAYPAL EVEN GIVES 6 MONTH CREDIT IF YOU HAVE GOOD

CREDIT..

AND THEY EVEN HAVE INSTALLMENT PLANS AND SAVINGS ACCOUNTS........YOU NEED TO SEE THE ENTIRE DEAL.

GETTING BACK $26,572,036.50 FOR ONLY $7,671 IS A DECENT DEAL IN AN ECONOMY WHERE IT IS HARD TO GET 5 % IN MOST OTHER THINGS......

AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE VERY RICH TO GET IN ON THE DEAL ONLY A ONE TIME $7,671 WILL DO IT.

Information/photgraph request

Hello, I am a model airplane builder and I am currently working on a model of a Grumman G-73 Mallard flying boat. The Egyptian Air Force Royal Flight operated two of these in the early 1950's during the King Farouk era and I want to paint my model in the scheme of one of these. I can only find two black and white photographs for these airplanes and so I have questions about the colours. The aircraft in question carried the Grumman serial numbers of J-47 and J-48 and were delivered to Egypt in 1950. I am speculating that the colours were of the Egyptian flag but cannot be certain. If anyone has any insight or perhaps a colour photo I would be most grateful.

Advise about arrival Cairo Airport II

When it comes asking for bakshish or tips. DON'T PAY!

If you are in the taxi and the luggage in the trunk and they ask for tips; leave the taxi and start removing the luggage. It's just pretend because they will then drop the demand for tips right away. You can tip at the other end 10 - 20.00 L. E. if everything went smoothly, it's a long ride and it's very cheap to get from the airport to city center.

Picture of

A bit of advice about Cairo Airport.

I have my grave suspicion that the previous comment was written by an airport staff. (The poor spelling and overly positive remarks)

Leaving the plane, getting your visa at one of the banks and getting down to the conveyor belt is quite easy. When you finally leave customs you are met with a plethora of driver-managers with badges and what-not. Ignore them even if they grab your trolley. Cross over the street to the opposite site and descent down to a lower level to the official 'white' taxis. You will get wild quotes for driving to downtown Cairo but a fair price Oct. 2014 is 100.00 Egyptian Pound. You might have to wait a minute but a driver will arrive and accept the price. Make sure you are booked with your name with the policeman sitting next to the taxis.

But remember that you can get your visa at the airport, how many countries gives that easy access to their country?

Isn't this a former RAF station from WW2?

Whilst the Americans may claim this as a wonderous overnight creation of theirs, generously funded by the US taxpayer without the slightest hint of ulterior motive, I reckon that Jiyanklis Air Base is actually the site of LG226, part of the former RAF Gianaclis and thus over 70 years old.

Taxi services at Cairo International Airport

I have been to Cairo on two occasions. The City itself is nice but the same can't be said about the airport, Cairo International Airport that is. For instance the tips these taxi drivers ask for is ridiculous. How on earth can you ask for a tip of 50 Egyptian pounds for yourself and then 50 Egyptian pounds for the driver, thats 100 Egyptians pounds in all. When i arrived in December 2013 i was greeted by a guy flashing his taxi badge at me and telling me how genuine his taxi service was outside the terminal. When i got into his cab a driver was already seated in the front seat. I agreed a price of 150 Egyptain pounds for the Hotel transfer which i though was over priced but i agreed anyway. Got inside the taxi, luggage in the trunk all set and ready to leave when the same person then standing outside the rear door of the taxi said to me i will pay him a tip of 50 Egyptain pounds and pay the driver a tip of 5o Egyptain pounds. By the way this guy wasn't asking me he was telling me what i should do. And kept insisting that i pay the tip.

Alitalia Flight from Heathrow via Rome enroute to CAIRO iNTE

Upon arrival at Cairo International Airport Terminal i purchased a VISA from the bank. Then while going through customs i was told too have a seat while my passport was kept for over three hours before being given back to me. To add to the grief of missing my taxi service to the hotel. My luggage was no where to be seen on the conveyer belt. After contacting Alitalia head office in London my luggage was located. upon arrival at Alitalia Office at Cairo International Airport two days after, i was told by the rep, i must pay a fee of ten Egyptian pounds for the return of my luggage. My luggage by the way contained my medication for Asthma for which i have been on for the past five years. But i guess they only want their ten Egyptian pounds. The most saddest airline i have ever traveled on. Hope you enjoy the Ten Egyptian Pounds because if i had not gotten that medication i could have died. Big Thanks

CAIRO AIRPORT

On my way through terminal 1 to check and passing through the scanner area. A person grabbed my luggage placed it on the belt then on the other side of the belt while lifting off my luggage he demanded money. when I said I had no money he dropped my laptop bag containing my 2000US dollar laptop containing my University projects that I been working on for the past six months. The treatment of foreigners like myself is wrong as well as the level of courtesy. My laptop if damaged would have placed me in great pain. As well as the information it contained I am also paying the bank monthly installments for this. Give people a break at the airports and let them get on their journeys please.

Airport was clean and spacious with courtious and helpful st

Unfortunately, one of our cases had been opened en route to the aircraft after check in. This was noticed on arrival at Gatwick. On unpacking our cases, we discovered that souvenire maps and Valley of the Kings Booklet and Valley of the Queens booklet and dynesty information and map of the Nile had been removed from our case. No other item in the case was taken. As these were of great sentimental value and reminder of our trips, we were very disappointed that these items were taken from our case as they had been intended for our children.

According to this story, the base a unit of the U.S.A.F. built this base in only a few days as part of Operation Bright Star (2005), to simulate setting up an emergency air base in combat conditions. Presumably, it was then handed over to the Egyptian Air Force:
