YESTERDAY, THE BROTHERS OF CUENCA WAYFARERS LODGE #69, the only English speaking lodge in Ecuador, held a Masonic Funeral Service for our departed brother, John Francis Fulton, lodge secretary. We were honored to know this fine man. Following the service and at his request his ashes were scattered in the Tomabamba River. We extend our condolences to his non-Masonic friends and especially to his wife, Bea.

THE GUGGENHEIM PARTNERS FUND, VALUED AT $200 BILLION, IS POISED TO INVEST HALF A BILLION INTO BITCOIN In a letter to the SEC Guggenheim reserves to right to invest up to 10% of its portfolio in Bitcoin. The current explosion in the Bitcoin price is largely driven by the massive movement of mainstream investment companies into crypto currency, specifically Bitcoin. The day is rapidly coming when they will hold 90% of it and will stabilize its price I believe. Until that happens the price will continue to soar.
As Bitcoin has received greater acceptance both as an investment and as a currency the price has responded accordingly. It is generally accepted that Paypal’s acceptance of Bitcoin has contributed to the recent run up of the cyber currency’s price. Now word is that Amazon is seriously considering adoption. Wow!
