1-29-13 Poppy3: We know about the call for the vote on the budget & that doesn't mean that the RV will happen when it is passed, but it is a step on the ladder and they have made a few steps in the last few days. I think there are two things left before the RV: 1. Dealing with Maliki 2. Someone in charge of the CBI that the IMF approves of. I don't see them working with Turki.
1-29-13 Gankins: We are right on target for the...RV. Should be seeing this all very soon. (Do you think it will go very far into 2013?) No.
1-29-13 BGG: They are moving right along and like I said. I believe we’re in the home stretch. We’re in good shape. BGG Blog
1-29-13 Hoosier: I apologize for not posting a response to my original post yesterday. I had some issue come up and was unable to meet with my friend (banker) as I had hoped. My grandfather was admitted into the hospital yesterday (early afternoon) and that was a priority!
I was able to speak with him for a short period of time to see about meeting later last night, which he was unable to do because or prior plans with his children. I did find out a couple details regarding what information that he has.
Apparently the local bank branch held a short meeting after the close of the business day this past Saturday. He said on the phone that the main focus of the meeting were some changes in certain areas of the banks daily activities..."boring" he stated until the Iraqi dinar was mentioned!!
They were told in the meeting that anyone that holds an account with the bank, and asks about the dinar..that their stance is still the same...They do not sell it...But...the woman heading up the meeting stated that ALL Regional managers were informed that some changes are to be made in regards to the Iraqi dinar beginning on Feb. 1, 2013.
Now, as I stated, I did not speak with him very long because of the situation with my grandfather, and being at the hospital....but his exact statement to me was that he was caught off guard with the rest of the info that was given.
He didn’t say that it was to revalue on the first of Feb., and I didn’t ask...he didn’t say that she told them that it would revalue at $XXX.XX per dinar...he simply said he was caught off guard, referring to the fact that he had heard absolutely nothing, and all of the sudden it was being discussed in the meeting.
We are meeting up for breakfast this morning at 9am. I am headed out the door to the hospital...I do not have any others plans after that, and will get back on and fill in the blanks that were left out over the phone. He did state that he had some more to tell me when we meet this morning.
Now, I have no idea what else he is going to tell me, or what he knows...I just wanted to let everyone here know that something had taken place, and I’m going to find out what all he has to say.
I was very surprised to log in and see so many views on this post...I have not even taken the time to read any of them...so if anyone asked a question, and I didn’t answer...I apologize. I simply have not had time to read anything.
I will share any and all info given to me today...as I stated earlier....so far, he has not said anything stupid such as a date or rate, but is very excited to meet up! He’s acting like a kid with a secret...he just cant wait to fill me in!! I’m excited too, but I don’t want to expect too much and it not be that big of a deal...and I don’t want that for any of you either!
I have no reason to be dishonest with this, I just wanted to share! I have to go...but if anyone is interested, I'll be back on and update between 10 and noon. God bless...and GO RI!!
