*SCAM ALERT*

Don't know if any of you collect coins, but there are tons of counterfeit silver dollars (including the Morgan Dollar) being sold as the real thing.  A friend of mine, who just bought six silver dollars, asked me to take them to a coin shop to see what they are worth.  The dates on these silver dollars were:  1796, 1893, 1842, 1804, 1906 & 1924.  My preliminary research showed that the 1796 coin goes for $1,000-$5,000...so you can imagine how excited my friend was, especially since he only paid $80 for all six of them.

He said that he bought the dollars from an old man in a parking lot.  The man said that he needed to sell them so that he could get his car out of an impound lot and that he knew they were worth much more, but he really needed some fast cash.  My friend agreed to purchase them because he thought he was doing the man a favor.  And that he could sell them for a lot more money.  Wrong.

I took them to a coin dealer and the guy looked at them for about 10 seconds and said, "All fakes."  He then explained to me that they are from China and that they've been making these counterfeit coins for about 5 years now.  It's legal as long as they sell them as "replicas" and they don't make any with dates past 1949.  He said that real silver dollars are 26 grams, not 19 and that you can pick them up with a magnet because they have an iron core.  They also have a weird reflection.  He says that people come in every single day with these fakes.

These dollars are being sold in Chinatown for $1 and then re-sold to unwitting buyers.  I did an ebay search and found a bunch that look very suspect as the seller offers no details and states, "You get what you see."  Anyway, I felt horrible about having to call my friend with the bad news.  And it makes me sick that this old man is probably scamming more innocent people everyday with his fake $1 Chinatown dollars and his hard-luck story.  In the end, if something sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

For fellow dog lovers, excellent advise, especially considering how we feel about the Azzes right now: an angelic monkey

I Am Your Dog

I am your dog, and I have a little something I would like to whisper in your
ear.

I know that you humans lead busy lives. Some have to work. Some have
children to raise. It always seems like you are running here and there,
often much too fast, often never noticing the truly grand things in life.

Look down at me now, while you sit there at your computer. See, the way my
dark brown eyes look at yours. They are slightly cloudy now. That comes with
age. The gray hairs are beginning to ring my soft muzzle.

You smile at me; I see love in your eyes. What do you see in mine? Do you
see a spirit? A soul inside, who loves you as no other could in the world? A
spirit that would forgive all trespasses of prior wrongdoing for just a
simple moment of your time?

That is all I ask. To slow down, if even for a few minutes to be with me.

So many times, you have been saddened by the words you read on that screen,
of other of my kind, passing. Sometimes we die young and oh so quickly,
sometimes so suddenly it wrenches your heart out of your throat. Sometimes,
we age so slowly before your eyes that you may not even seem to know until
the very end, when we look at you with grizzled muzzles and cataract clouded
eyes. Still the love is always there, even when we must take that long sleep
to run free in a distant land.

I may not be here next week. Someday you will shed the water from your eyes,
that humans have when deep grief fills their souls, and you will be angry at
yourself that you did not have just "One more day" with me. Because I love
you so, your sorrow touches my spirit and grieves me. We have NOW, together.

So come, sit down here next to me on the floor, and look deep into my eyes.
What do you see? If you look hard and deep enough we will talk, you and I,
heart to heart. Come to me not as "alpha" or as "trainer" or even "Mom or
Dad," come to me as a living soul and stroke my fur and let us look deep
into another's eyes, and talk.

I may tell you something about the fun of chasing a tennis ball, or I may
tell you something profound about myself or even life in general. You
decided to have me in your life because you wanted a soul to share such
things with.

Someone very different from you, and here I am.

I am a dog, but I am alive. I feel emotion, I feel physical senses, and I
can revel in the differences of our spirits and souls. I do not think of you
as a "Dog on two feet"- I know what you are. You are human, in all of your
quirkiness, and I love you still.

Now, come sit with me on the floor. Enter my world, and let time slow down
if only for 15 minutes. Look deep into my eyes, and whisper to my ears.
Speak with your heart, with your joy and I will know your true self.

We may not have tomorrow, and life is oh so very short.

--Love, (on behalf of canines everywhere)

Did any Southern California Monkeys feel today's little earthquake?  Felt more like a 2.8 than a 4.2 to me.  The worrisome thing about it is that it's near the fault that hosted the 1971 Sylmar quake and its on a strike-slip fault...the type of fault that produces more violent quakes.  I've already moved all beloved breakable items to a safer spot in the event that these little quakes are a precursor to a big one.  Stay safe, everyone!
