There's Gold In Them Thar Hills

With our suffering economy and the dramatic rise in gold's price, people today are actually panning for gold as a source of income. Harrigan McGregor, owner of Gold Fever Prospecting, a mining equipment retailer in northern California, claims that California is experiencing it's second big gold rush nearly 160 years later. McGregor's business has significantly boosted by the number of people quitting their jobs to take on gold panning full-time. Risky...!

If I don't get this job I've been interviewing my ass of for and Plan B falls through then I'm a get my pan out and head for them hills. Plan D, rob a bank. (shhhhhhh...)

Here are some songs about GOLD. Some of the titles are a stretch but I don't wannna hear no crit-tism or complainin' or I'll hit chu upside yer stupid little head with dis here Groundhog Pick I bought off of ol' McGregor.
