  1. Hello, Mr. Lee Allison:

    I spotted your blog site and instantly liked it. On my blog I added link to your blog so that I can come back to visit you often.

    On May 21, 2007 you posted this about tellurium. I think that's a great idea. So have you invested in physical tellurium yet? Where do you purchase this material from? At what price? What web site do you use to check out current and historical price of tellurium?

    I apprciate you answer my questions. Thanks. Also interested in palladium investment? Then look at my web site. Call me crazy but I put 90% of my retirement into SWC and PAL because of palladium.
