    U.S. President Donald Trump may turn up the pressure on Venezuela’s crippled regime by going after the most vital link between the two countries: crude oil. The Trump administration is considering a ban on oil imports from Venezuela as part of a spate of sanctions to punish President Nicolas Maduro, people familiar with the matter told Bloomberg News. Maduro’s government has been accused of corruption and attempts to quash political opposition. Targeting crude oil is controversial even within the White House, where some officials say it would impose too much pain — on both countries.

    Almost 1,400 farms in #Virginia have been owned by the same family for more than 100 years.

    TY, I wonder how much the civil war affected that number also


    ^^^^ +3 and +1 … I grew up on one of those … even with deer infestations, I still love natural beauty of mountains & wildlife in our area … with that said I have also seen some large farms turned into subdivisions to accommodate a growing population (or to divide up land for childrenn later) … Working farms are being more of a rare commodity these days


    Good morning

    speaking of deer
    I need to get up some deer smilies before the request start flooding in 😉

    the smilies are there too btw, don’t recommend using them just yet as I need to change the short code for them, hence why they are ‘white out’ when u click for the pop up


    [size=4][color=blue]Dryships (DRYS) is still re-arranging the DECK CHAIRS :woohoo: :woohoo::woohoo:

    They are now down to 1 for 7 shares reverse split for JULY 21st (down another 33% today alone) … they just did a 1 for 5 shares in past few weeks … so that becomes a 1 for 35 reverse share split in past 4 weeks or so in an attempt to re-gain stability Thankfully, I was “cautious” and even though it was tempting to buy on the dip

    However, kinda-like BENNIE & JANET — the company printed too many shares to raise capital.;-)[/color]


    …and you almost wanted to hold onto that bagger at a dollar

    Brutal the money fleeced on that brings a new meaning to global warming and icebergs


    On the hour 12:00 PM

    Dow +0.13%.
    10-yr -0.05%.
    Euro -0.33% vs. dollar.
    Crude +1.16% to $46.94.
    Gold -0.12% to $1,240.35.


    [size=4]WOW – DRYS fell to 40% in ONE DAY after massive prior losses) … That is now at the halfway point of the $1.00 I saw as the HOLD point — but thankfully never got serious about putting $$$ to work — as I got some good advice (plus I am more of mutual fund investor anyway) 🙂

    And mainly wanted to share “to keep DRYS from being de-listed from NASDAQ

    When stock prices fall below $1 per share they can be de-listed from NASDAQ (and I remembered that from many years ago, but now better understand what is going on) … and now more fully realize the dangers of PENNY stock [/size]


    FYI $NDX makes a higher high – the NFLX boogie continues
