Whew! Election is Over! - FVITF - SILA - BULM - TLT - TWDIF - Currencies - Miners

I am very glad that the election is over. The adds and phone calls will drop to zero now. However, we will soon be facing the presidential campaigns, so don't think we will be left alone for long. We now have the make up of governors, judges, legislators, etc. that the Lord has selected for us. Perhaps, we will reach a form of gridlock which could be a blessing except for the repeal of ObamaCare which will likely be impossible given the make up of the Federal Congress. 

King Jesus knows what He is doing and we are not privy to the reasons for the actions He takes and the situations He presents for us. We are only responsible for spreading His Kingdom to every area of our lives and in every area of society with which we come in contact. 

Thus, we are to carefully select the movies, music, media, and activities in which we are engaged. All must provide the opportunity for sharing the gospel to unbelievers and sharpening the knowledge and wisdom of fellow Christians. We are to subdue the earth for King Jesus. He is in control, but uses the means His joint heirs. Let us fellowship together to accomplish this task. Praise Him daily.

Silver coins zoom to record high on 'Dhanterus' demand
New Delhi, Nov 3 Silver coins zoomed to record high levels of Rs 43,000 per 100 pieces in the national capital today, as demand shifted to silver amid high gold prices and weak global trend.

Heavy buying for the festival of Dhanterus today and upcoming Diwali, also led to the rise in the silver coin prices. The silver coins jumped up by Rs 1,900 to Rs 42,900 for buying and Rs 43,000 for selling of 100 pieces. The demand for the Silver Eagles at the U.S. Mint has been very heavy and the supply has been cut off from time to time. HERE.
