I’ve come down with what seems to be a bad cold.  I’m hoping that this isn’t the dreaded Omicron variant of the WuFlu.

For the first time ever in 18 years of writing and editing SurvivalBlog, I’ll be taking a few sick days, to recuperate.  Don’t worry, folks. I’m only 62 years old and I’m doing all of the right things:  Plenty of fluids, bed rest, extra Vitamin D3, Vitamin C, and Zinc.  I’m also taking a five-day course of 12 MG Ivermectin tablets.

As I’m writing this on Thursday afternoon, I’m still sick abed but now actually feeling a bit better. Sadly, this nasal-throat-chest crud has already robbed me of several days of productive writing and editing time.

Thanks for your patience! – JWR

P.S.:  On another note, you may have noticed that gold hit a one-year high on Tuesday.  (Spot Gold up 2% for the day to $2,037.60, and Spot Silver up 4.7% for the day at $25.16.)  There were some pull-backs on profit-taking, with gold back down to around $2,020. But silver was still at a solid $25.18 on Thursday afternoon.

I told you so.
