All the Gold in California

When I went to California for the first time in 1984 for the Olympics (to watch, not participate), my sisters and I had fun singing the old song "All the Gold in California" at the top of our lungs. The most real contact I had with the gold mining history of that state on that trip was at Disney World on one of the roller coasters.

When I was in New Zealand on the South Island a couple of years ago, I did some driving through the hills where the abandoned gold mines are situated. I did some reading up on the life that the miners lived back in those days, and man! did they have it bad. (I'll write more on that another time.)

My sponsor for this post, Monex Deposit Company makes it much easier to get some gold to tuck away as an investment than it was in the Gold Rush days back in California and New Zealand. They will help you make your investment online, and will also arrange for the delivery and/or storage of your gold, silver, or other precious metals.

It sure is good to be living in this day and age.
