TCR Family

: We are tooling with our fresh TCR address for profits and lifestyle trends. With profits coming first.

I think will take our TCR family to a new level: a higher one. We'll have functionality, headlines, streamlined delivery of reports plus goodies, freebs and trade-ables. Tour invites. Free food and events. WINNING IDEAS. [SEE BELOW, FOR INSTANCE, ON ENDEAVOUR SILVER CONFERENCE CALL.]

Please excuse the TCR construction mess. [We are spending our cult capital on this; expect big things from our Sausalito-based designers, if you are fortunate to be one of our TCR subscribers. We'll be raising the price from its current $129 yearly in late autumn 2014. Feel good if you are one of our subscribers these past two years. Your price is locked in. Oh, and this is new: my word that when we rack up THE BIG ONE, EVERYONE will benefit, our TCR family.]

At Peace: Just about noon Monday, I was returning from a meeting with American Sands Energy's Daniel Carlson. We both live in Marin County, California. I was on my bicycle, and maybe a minute or two after passing Paradise Quay, on the other side of Tiburon, had a motorcade of ambulances, paramedics and fire trucks whip by. That was the final act for Robin Williams, the comedian and actor.

Tiburon is on a peninsula, just north of San Francisco. On a bike, there are only two ways in and two ways out, not counting ferries. Mr. Williams was on bicycles as much as he was on stage, it seems. Many of us saw him riding, or passing us by, or at a bike charity function or other. I include a couple of photos of Robin Williams on a bike here in Marin -- and located via the Marin Independent Journal and a search engine.

I also include a little known link to about an hour of a show RW did in 1980 in San Francisco. At the Great American Music Hall. I was fortunate to see Mr. Williams perform years later at Bimbo's, a North Beach night club -- 13 or 14 years ago during our MarketWatch days in SF. [Thanks to our CEO then, Larry Kramer, for those tickets to a rowdy and racy show.] RW was and always will be wickedly funny, triple-X rated at Bimbo's, here in Mill Valley at 142 Throckmorton Theatre and some other of these performances. I especially love when Mr. Williams reminisces about his adolescence. He attended Redwood High School here, where Maura went years ago a few years behind Mr. Williams, and where our children now go (or have just graduated). As a couple, our first apartment on Lake Street in SF was literally three blocks from where Mr. Williams had his Seacliff home in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

Some of Robin's lines are a little to close to home, here in Tiburon raising two kids and seeing one of them head to university in two weeks in southern California. "I didn't get my first Porsche until I was 16," is one Robin line. "I had to work all winter to go to Europe" is another.

The manic one is now at peace. Long live RW and his merry kingdom.

Back to Business: Listening to the Endeavour Silver (TSX: EDR, Stock Forum) conference call on Q2 numbers. "Thanks to our ability to dramatically increase our free cash flow the past four quarters," the company decided to increase capital spending "without impairing the balance sheet," Brad Cooke, founder, said. "We're bullish on gold and silver. We think this year is a turning point ... significant from $19 to $20 (per silver ounce) for our company's EBITDA. It funds more of our capital exploration spending." Mr. Cooke also said he and the board would make a decision, hopefully by year end, to start a fourth mine at San Sebastien in Mexico, where all the properties are. Endeavour Silver is EXK and EDR in USA and Canada. "The operations are actually running very well," he said.

I will be taking the stock weakness to purchase more Endeavour Silver if it falls beneath $5.50 USD.

Action: Take a look at the Arizona IP copper results that Desert Star Resources (TSX: V.DSR, Stock Forum) has out. I was there with several scouts and geologists three or four months ago and purdhased the stock -- DSR in Canada -- from inside the chopper as we flew above the Superior, Arizona, copper belt. I'd like to see worthwhile explorer shares rise on solid IP, trenching and other geochemical and geophysical results. When that starts happening, our rally rerun for metals equities is confirmed. ... Others to look at -- uranium is rising above $30 for the first time in months. We here own Powertech Uranium (TSX: PWE, Stock Forum) / Azarga. That is PWE in Canada. Also looking at NexGen Energy (TSX: V.NXE, Stock Forum).

Finally, Calibre Mining (TSX: V.CXB, Stock Forum) speculation on word-flow is looking good; Nicaragua and three projects in all. CXB in Canada. I own it... Travel: Del Mar (California) for the races Wednesday, thoroughbred that is.
