    I was in the junkyard yesterday, cannot believe that they give you money for the crap I dropped off.. made $77.00.. going there and meeting the cast of characters is one of my favorite things to do.

    Precious metals, stones, oil, etc. are all at record levels. I work right by the commercial area on the Chelsea/Everett line, and there are a half dozen scrap yards here. The lines of trucks is amazing. Remember when I told me to buy gold, or save your jewelry, well... :D

    Did anyone else think of the copper episode of Sanford and Sons when reading this headline?

    Actually the cooper in pennies are are worth more than $.01, so if you have a bucket fill of them, smelt them!

    Metals will always increase in vaule when the dollar is weak.

    I had a thread about this a week ago. Both the penny and the nickel.
