So How Do Your Gears Mesh
Hi guys its Barry in DR. Over the past week I’ve tried my best to get out several new posts. I had about ten days in between visits… most of the chores around the house have been done… the weathers been rainy and I can’t find the parts I need for my Prado Truck so why not stock up on some future articles.
Over the next three weeks I’ll be pretty much non-stop as there’s several folks set to arrive and commence with our DYD tour. If you haven’t already done so why not click onto the yellow hot button on the splash page of the site and see what others have to say about our tour and more importantly our region. It’s worth your time… and now onto the post with another thought provoking question.
Mistakes or Experiences Honestly Let us know how you view it.
When you’re contemplating attempting something new or making a change how do you view it? Whether you decide to proceed or not isn’t relevant to my question. However what is relevant is how you determine the level of effort will be for you to obtain the desired result? Are you part of the vast mindset that always associates change must always be difficult to accomplish? I was for a long time.

Everything from this Bali style castle to the simplest of dwellings you’ll find it in the DR.
Hi Guys, Barry in DR. Of course you know I am a big proponent of the north coast of the Dominican Republic as a viable escape haven for U.S., Canadian and European expats. You have heard my reasons, including the abundance of fresh foods and water, low cost of living, ideal climate and uncrowded world-class beaches. But I have another less obvious reason for investing my own money in the region.
I am a trend follower. For close to 30 years I have closely watched what has happened with real estate appreciation of ocean front and ocean view property all over the world. Of course like any real estate investment… you make your profit by buying “right”. You look for locations that have not yet hit the radar. Cabrera Dominican Republic certainly fits that bill, but I have a few other criteria. I want real estate I can actually ENJOY as it appreciates. Here again, the Cabrera area fits that bill too. One last thing I look for in real estate these days is a location that offers adequate shelter from the upcoming collapse of major world currencies. Once again, Cabrera fits the bill. Local sustainability built on self reliance. Cabrera hosts a section of non-export but still is part of a much larger farming region that runs along the entire north coast of the nation. A region consisting of a wide range of fruits, veggies, meats, dairy products and fish. Cabrera can be summed up best as being a combination of self reliance and barter all in one easy to get along community. [click to continue…]
Hi guys, Barry in DR. DOW hits all time highs. Economy On Strong Rebound. Things looking up. Investors rush back into the stock market.
Have you seen or heard these headlines. Well, what about you? I have had some pretty interesting conversations with friends and associates in the U.S. and this is what I am hearing from too many of them. It’s amazing to me that otherwise smart people seem to have a long-term memory span of only about 4 to 6 years. It is kind of funny and sad that that a 4 to 6 year memory span seems to parallel what happens in the economy. Namely: cautious investment leads to gains which grow into euphoria and ultimately an all-in attitude followed by the inevitable crash leading to destruction of wealth and finally total dispair. How many times do you have to watch the reruns before you wake up to the fact that the “end” of this story never changes.
Just in case you are one of those investors that find yourself slipping down that slippery slope of euphoria, maybe you should watch the 13 minute video interview of Jim Rodgers below. [click to continue…]
The World is full of Natural Healing. One Problem With That is Corporate Interests Don’t Convey With Your Best Interest and NEVER WILL.
Hi Guys its Barry in DR. I wanted to continue on from my last post regarding the various forms of poison that you’re currently ingesting into your body on a daily basis. By simply eating the available foods at your local grocery stores and restaurants you’re heading down a slippery slope that’s sure to end with health issues in the medium to long term. Even those of you who are conscience and willfully trying your best to provide yourself and your families with wholesome natural diets are falling victim to corporate priorities… and corporate priorities are not in your health’s best interest. Seems it’s becoming near impossible to steer clear of these three dangerous reefs that surround all of us. What reefs you ask… your air your water your food and its shaping up to be a hell of a perfect storm.

Hi guys it’s Barry in DR. Hey I’ve got a question for you all. My question is this. So where’s the 100 dollar plus per once silver? Over the past few years several well-known experts composed hoards of articles about silver and what value it’s going to take on. The range being quoted in these articles is almost as broad a spectrum as the terrain in the DR.
Here in the DR the terrain ranges from Rocky Mountains that soar well above the clouds to soft sandy beaches hovering at sea level. Seems to vary from one extreme to the other and that’s precisely my point. All my readers are aware that there’s been hundreds if not thousands of past articles mentioning price quotes, time frames along with a multitude of reasons of what may be the catalyst to send this commodity soaring to new highs. So like the old add from the Wendy’s commercial: where’s the beef?
One of the most widely suggested motives for sending silver to the moon (their words not mine) was the following: At the time paper markets can’t or decide not to answer a call, even just one single call on answering a conversion back to physical from its paper counterpart that’s the time it soars and doesn’t look back. As after that time it’s too late if you’re not already in. Now I KNOW you’ve all heard similar quotes before and most would say several times before. So I have to ask one more time where’s the 100 plus per once silver… where’s the beef? [click to continue…]
