11-14-13 Mnt.Goat: Hi Everyone. Bavarian weather is now very cold already in the mountains. The top peaks are now white and soon the valleys too will be covered. It is difficult now to hike and I miss it but now is coming close to holiday shopping and all the preparations to consume our time. Christmas is a wonderful, special time in Bavaria and Germany as a whole.
Bavaria’s cities, towns and villages are filled with Christmas magic during the holiday season. The Christmas Market season runs throughout the Advent period, from the end of November to the third week of December. The markets are generally held in the Town Square and each has its own unique atmosphere.
But common threads include, decorated stalls heaped with traditional Christmas decorations, toys and gifts and the aromas of mulled wine, grilled sausages, Christmas biscuits and gingerbread .
St. Nikolaus, the German Santa Claus, often pays a visit. Christmas carol singing and Christmas concerts usually coincide with the markets, which are generally open seven days a week and run well into the evenings.
Meine Kinder especially enjoy being around all the festivities and so does Meine Hubby as we all hold hands and stroll through the village in the evenings.
This year, in particular, I will remember this Christmas magic. I will think of all of you dinarian friends over these years too, since with this time of preparation it will be the blessings bestowed upon us and the prayers of gratitude for the special gift about to be given to us all. Yes – this will be special Christmas for all of us.
I wanted to email some news to all for a brief update on now what I am hearing about this currency revaluation of Iraq dinar. All news is still very good and we are still on track to begin exchanges on Monday.
My sources tell me that Iraq did not yet announce revaluation and they did not revalue currency. This is just rumor and conjecture on the parts of many intel providers. Please do not get confused by this news. I am not calling anyone a liar since this is the news they heard but it conflicts with my news.
Instead they simply loaded more money on their cards as final payments on pension and welfare programs were made this week. The rates varied according to the programs allowed. Yes- the people in Iraq are very happy! These QI Cards are not yet international. As I have said and repeat again today these cards cannot go international until the formal revaluation announcement is made in Iraq.
About this so-called RV Announcement
This RV will be kicked off when the CBI site rate is changed. This is essentially the announcement. Then, if not at the same time, the international exchanges and banks will be updated and the rates activated. This is the process and there is no shortcuts or exceptions.
So here is the tricky part of all this announcement stuff. I do not want to confuse you more but instead need to clarify. When I say formal announcement I do not mean they will come right out and announce to the world that they just revalued their currency.
They cannot do this now especially since we all now know the US will have a much different in country rate than in Iraq and most other countries. I will not get into the details as to how or why this is being allowed but just relax and you will see this is not a hoax.
Instead we should all now be looking for the delegation from the US going to Iraq very soon in the news. This delegation will give photo opps, shake hands and party with Iraq leaders.
They may not necessarily talk directly about the currency revaluation in speeches but will talk in length about the nation of Iraq its past challenges, its new democracy, reconstruction and cooperation with the rest of the developed world.
They will concentrate on parts of speech about their wealth and how they are now “open for business” with the rest of the world. This will be the key speech and the key words. Look for it in the coming days. We are at that critical moment.
Today is Thursday 11/14 and we are on track during this waiting period. My contacts are telling we are now in the next open window period for this process which is thru Sunday with exchanging possibly beginning on Monday 11/18 if all goes well.
They do not expect this to go to yet another window of next week again so be calm and relax.
As you know I cannot guarantee what I am hearing is 100% accurate but these sources have been spot on so far up until the plan changes. This is the plan I am now hearing. It could change but I have high confidence we are on track to see the activation later this week and go to the banks early next week.
I will certainly relay any new information as I receive it. I would luv to have conference calls daily to give you the news as it is happening, but my situation will not allow it at this time.
I do not anticipate any obstacles. There is too much at stake for Iraq as I described in my last email. They need a usable, viable, internationally recognized currency, and they need it now. They cannot afford any more holdups. There is a plan to get them to this point.
I hope my news is helping everyone to get off the hopium wagon and enjoy the day. Again no one knows the date or rate but we can come real close by using correct assumptions, articles and applying what info the reliable sources are telling us.
I do not wish to put anyone in stress if it does not activate by Monday as I am only relaying what I am being told and the news coming out of Iraq at this time.Dinars.me Note: We are primarily a news and content aggregator.
