I'm Spinning my Wheels on Marketing the Coins.

I'm having troubles moving my coins. I don't have a good camera to take pictures for Ebay and potential buyers. I tried using my phone to take pictures of the coins, this morning.
I was able to transfer the image to the computer but it was too fuzzy to do any good.
I ordered a microscope camera from Wal Mart. It will take a couple of weeks to get here from China.
I'm broke so I don't know how I will get the pictures taken.
I'm trying to fine someone who can help me with this; but so far I have no takers.
I have a couple of people interested in the coins. One  is in New York and the other is in Colorado; but I have no way to get good pictures to either.
I also left off 10 coins at a place called Game Exchange. They not only are into video games but they market things on Ebay for people.
The trouble with them is that they are not doing anything. I took those coins there last week and they haven't listed them yet. I'm getting exasperated.
On a different topic, I watched a video about something called C60 today. It's some sort of isotope of carbon that has benefits for health, apparently. If I could get my brother to take it (and maybe marijuana) maybe he'll heal his cancer. If I ever get any money I'll send him a bottle from Ebay. I'll get a bottle for myself because it's supposed to be good for everything including improving intuition.
I'm also not making any headway in getting my Bitcoins back. I was thinking today that if I ever get any serious money I should hire a private detective to help me find my coins. I think it's a good idea.

All My Negative Videos are Getting Repetitive.

I'm getting tired of watching all of the YouTube channels that I normally watch. The same people are saying just what they've been saying for the last 2 or 3 years.
The Las Vegas shooting was probably a false flag event. Nobody believes the main stream media anymore so we notice when they change their narrative and such.
We're all convinced that the currency can't hold together for very much longer. Of course, the same people who've been saying that the currency will collapse this month have been saying similar things for the last 30 years. There's always something that will bring down the world's economy but for some reason it never seems to happen.
Gold and silver never seems to go through the roof because the currency never seems to collapse. That has to do with the "never happening" currency collapse.
There is a sharp divide as far as crypto currencies are concerned. A lot of people have jumped on board with them but the die-hard precious metals people see them as another massive bubble.
I'm all for jumping in with both feet on crypto currencies but I'm too poor to actually do anything about it.
If I could sell my coins (and it's turning out to be harder than anyone would expect); I would buy Litecoin on margin and clean up. 
Talking about my coins, I took some of them to Onalaska yesterday. Fedex has some sort of deal with Ebay; you simply take your stuff to Fedex and they have a thing called Ebay valet. It's a thing where they market your stuff on Ebay and do all the work for you. There is a 20% charge but I feel it's worth it to have your stuff marketed professionally.
Unfortunately, it didn't work for me. I was unable to get anything listed. Apparently there was something wrong with their software. Anyway I drove 150 miles and wasted a day trying to make it work. I guess I'll have to buy a camera and do it myself. I couldn't find my old camera and I don't think the phone has enough resolution for the job. I'll have to take everything out of the back of the car and keep looking for the camera tomorrow.
Well the music is about to start so I'll finish this for now.

A Lot is Happening, Now

While I was visiting my brother he gave me his coin collection.
Now I have to figure out what to do with the coins. It appears that one of them is worth a lot of money.
I contacted a coin broker in New York about it. He said that there is an auction next March that he would like to list it at. It is labeled as being an MS 65 but the broker said that the grading agency which graded it has a bad reputation for  overly optimistic ratings.
It'll cost $50; but he wants a more reputable agency to look at it. The difference between a rating of MS 64 and MS 65 is thousands of dollars.Here is a picture of that coin.

I'm contacting other buyers as well but the first one is the most interested. In fact, I've sent off images of the coin to several buyers and none of them has gotten back to me.
I took several other coins to a dealer in La Crosse and he insulted me with his offer. I'm giving up on dealers since they only want to cheat people.
In fact I was tempted to go to a coin show this weekend. I think I'll skip it since a coin show is just a collection of dealers who all intend to cheat a seller as much as possible.
I'm listing some of them on Ebay next week. I used a magazine that I bought at Barnes and Noble to set my beginning prices. I was happy to see that the prices in the magazine were within 5 dollars of what the Ebay sellers were getting. They'll be on the market next week.
My brother has bladder cancer but the radiation treatments seem to be helping him. He needs to be in a nursing home and maybe he will be soon.
I got the book about Bitcoins but it didn't add to my knowledge of the early days of Bitcoins. I need to hear back from the 2 people I sent messages to about my missing Bitcoins. I'll have to find different ways to contact them.
Java John's is closing soon so I'll sign off, now.

I'm Listening to a Jazz Band at Java John's.

I'm spending Saturday night listening to a jazz band. It's too loud for me to watch my YouTube videos; so I might as well do a little blogging.
First of all I want to thank all the Russians who visited my blog a week ago. They didn't come back but I had 96 views from Russia one day.
I don't know why that happens but a few years ago a bunch of Moldavian's  visited my blog. Maybe they and the Russians are learning how not to use commas. That's a skill that eludes me to this day.
About my search for my old bitcoins; I sent a couple of messages on a site called bitcointalk.org. One was to the guy who bought pizzas for bitcoins in 2010 and the other was to a guy who ran a bitcoin exchange in that era.
I haven't heard back from either one but I have hopes and at least I'm doing something about getting my bitcoins back.
About other personal news, my brother is having an operation for bladder cancer next week. I don't know if he'll make it through the operation so I'm going to Western Iowa next Tuesday or Wednesday. Maybe I should ask everyone who reads this blog to say a little prayer for him.
I feel sad for him because he has had a very bad life. He is angry all the time and he spent most of his life smoking and drinking; which I'm sure has shortened his life span by decades. Now it's time for me and my sister to go to his side and help him either get a little better or face death. We're not a close family; I just hope we don't get into a big fight.
On a totally different topic, I see that there is a rumor that Amazon will be accepting bitcoins for payments. If it's true it will be a game-changer.
I'll be listing my etchings on Amazon and I hope I'll be able to help a deserving Chinese person get his money out of the country or at least into some fine art. Of course, my etchings could be sold anywhere in the world but I would prefer payments in bitcoins anyway.
On the topic of bitcoins, I see that GoldMoney.com has improved it's platform. They always accepted bitcoins for gold purchases but now they will store bitcoins and some other alt-coins. They also make it easy to get into other currencies. It sounds like a real improvement and I'm glad it's coming about.
If you are at all interested in crypto-currencies and gold and silver go there and tell them I sent you.
There is a payment for referrals.
On that note I think I'll sign off; they are playing Bruebek's "Take Five".

A Note of Gratitude

When I went to the hypnotist a little while ago he had me ask my angel for help.
It appears to me that I'm getting some help.
First, I found a new avenue to search to get my Bitcoins back. I found that there was only one exchange opened when I was buying Bitcoins.
I tracked down the owner of the now defunct exchange and sent him a message asking for help in finding my Bitcoins. I've yet to hear back from him.
Next, a very strange thing happened yesterday. In my apartment I felt something touch my left shoulder blade. It hit the floor and it turned out to be a missing flash drive that I lost a couple of months ago. I rationalized that it had stuck to my back whilst I was laying on my air mattress and simply fell off a couple of seconds after I got up.
That would be a logical explanation except I had closely searched the air mattress and sheets and stuff when I first lost the flash drive. It was weird but I'm grateful to get the drive back.
Another thing I'm grateful for is how easily Manpower is getting me jobs. Although I had to sell some silver yesterday, Manpower is keeping me in enough money to keep ahead of my bills.
Oh, I almost forgot, I've been having troubles with my hot water lately. It turned out that it was turned off because they are tearing down the neighboring building. It has my water heater in it.
My landlord is letting me move into the apartment next to mine and he will let me store stuff here because he won't be able to rent it out with out a water heater. So now I'll have a nicer apartment and storage space as well. I needed the space for my prepping stuff and my etching collection.
That's all for now.
