Reasons to be Cheerful, 1-2-3 (hundred)

I have more reasons than usual to be cheerful this week.  Not only does the burrito celebrate the milestone of reaching 300 posts, but I have also had the glorious experience of attending and speaking at the Inside Commodities conference in Chicago. To complete the treble, I have got to meet one of my heroes, Dennis Gartman.

Burrito bites

Hello and welcome to another edition of burrito bites!
