I am joined this week by Paul Wheaton. Paul Wheaton is the host of the largest permaculture website in the world,

This episode is filled with useful tips from the permacultural front. During the podcast, Paul talked about his lawn care philosophies, permaculture and diatomaceous earth. He gives a quick overview of his articles on ants and aphids, Sepp Holzer, hugelkultur and flea control

In addition to the helpful info you will acquire by listening to this podcast, listeners may also be thrilled by the amount of chops-busting and hard-times that Paul and I gave each other. I don't know how that happened, it just seemed natural for both of us to take playful jabs at one another. We actually got along famously... I think.

Like most of my guests, Paul is a guest I will have to have back on in the future. I was fascinated by the seminars he hosts that highlight how a permaculturist can make $200,000 by working the land and his/her livestock properly. Amen to that!

I have realized that over the csorue of building a relationship with real estate managers, you'll be able to come to understand that, in every single real estate purchase, a fee is paid. In the end, FSBO sellers will not save the fee. Rather, they struggle to earn the commission simply by doing an agent's job. In this, they expend their money as well as time to complete, as best they're able to, the responsibilities of an broker. Those obligations include getting known the home through marketing, offering the home to all buyers, constructing a sense of buyer desperation in order to make prompt an offer, making arrangement for home inspections, controlling qualification assessments with the loan company, supervising maintenance, and assisting the closing of the deal.

Review by parallax demon for Rating: Just about every selelr here is charging the shipping cost for every coin individually!Meaning if you order 10 coins, your shipping will come out to 44 dollars which is absurd.They are profiteering.

Jack,One of the things I think you soulhd have mentioned regarding Silver in my research and regarding specifically Junk VS Silver Bullion.We all know Silver Bullion (.999) is more pure than Junk Silver, and Junk Silver is actually a form of currency, or money acceptable in the current structure.But Silver Bullion (.999) is a better investment to me for a number of reasons 1. .999 Silver is very pure, and thus more compact, and less weight for worth 2. .999 Silver is the type of silver used for industrial use which is one of the major uses of Silver.I still think Junk Silver is a good investment, especially as you indicated in a barter situation it is in smaller formats such as a mercury dime which I believe without looking it up has .0715 OZ or something similar of silver and it's near impossible to find any .999 silver in anything under a 1/2 OZ, or 1/4 OZ.About 60% of the silver used every year is used in industrial applications, since they are one of the major players in the silver market wouldn't you want silver that they can use as is? Industry isn't going to look at Junk Silver as a form of equal worth to .999 Silver since they will have to put money, time, effort and energy into making it pure to use for what they need. Of course you could say that silver jewelry (which is roughly equivalent to 90% silver coins) is similar, but they are not such a major player, or use of silver as industry is.There also isn't much difference in the price between Junk Silver and getting second hand silver rounds A $500 dollar face value bag of mixed 90% Junk Silver is about 33.36 per ounce ( While You can buy 34.20 a ounce. Do you think it will cost industry more or less than 84 cents per ounce to make your Junk Silver pure? I think it might actually be more with the rising costs of energy, production, etc. This doesn't even include shipping and transportation costs.Also if your making a bigger investment the difference becomes even less.. 33.30 a ounce for junk (at 10,000 dollar investment) to 33.74 a ounce for a similar investment for pure silver. Once you include shipping costs the difference is actually about zero, or close to it and you have a less pure product which has to again be refined for industrial use.Also in my purchasing of Silver Bullion (.999) second hand coins I have gotten a number of American Eagles and similar American coins which have a higher value than just generic .999 silver.IceDeepCurrent score: 0
