Dow down 159 on Friday. Gold up $18 an ounce. Remember, it’s just a matter of time until US stocks begin to fall. How much time? Darned if we know! We spent Friday cosechando (harvesting). We were on our knees going through the vineyard at the family ranch, harvesting grapes. The going rate for such work is 5.70 Argentine pesos (or about $0.70) per gamela – the plastic bin we dragged along after us. This was the first time we had ever worked as a grape picker.
