Did you know that the Dow Jones closed above 2,000 for the first time on January 8, 1987? What did it close at yesterday? It closed at 36,231.66 on January 7, 2022. I wish I would have had money to invest back in 1987. I could be retired now.
On January 8, 1974, gold hit a record $126.50 an ounce. The price of one ounce of gold today is $1,804.90. I was still in elementary school in 1974, but I can still dream about being this magnificent investor in my early teens.
Voyageurs National Park was established on January 8, 1971. International Falls, Minnesota is a beautiful place in the summer. However, if you like winter, you could possibly see the northern lights from this park.
Have a great weekend. Blessings and peace!
