End of 2012

It's already the New Year in Singapore.

Rather than show you fireworks, I've put in here a picture of the rare talipot palm, currently in bloom at the Orchard Gardens here. This tree is about 80 years old. It blooms once in its life (now), then dies.

Unfortunately for me, this has been a gruelling year, both from a professional standpoint and most definitely from an investing standpoint. However, here's hoping the coming year will be better. Given the storms building on the horizon, for those of us working and investing in the precious metals field, it will either be a lot better or a lot worse.

The most-viewed article on this blog (in pageviews, according to Google Analytics) was the big winner last year about Atlantis.

The most-viewed article written this year was the one on scale invariance in avalanches, forest fires and default cascades, which no doubt got a boost by appearing on Zerohedge (where it has far more pageviews than it does here).

Happy New Year all! I have no predictions but intend to still be here.
