The Legendary Thunderbird could have been real. Though the Thunderbird myth varied from region to region and tribe to tribe, the Thunderbird was, in the eyes of the ancient Native Americans, a magical animal that was sent by their gods to protect them from the powers of evil. Riding on the wings of the storm, the Thunderbird embodied the power of the storm. Its eyes flashed fire, its cry was like the crack of lightning, and its mighty wings beat with the sound of rolling thunder, ever protecting its people from the powers of evil.

There have been sightings of giant birds all over the U.S. off and on for many years. A gigantic bird was sighted in Pennsylvania on Tuesday, September 25, 2001. A 19-year-old claimed to have seen an enormous winged creature flying over Route 119 in South Greensburg, Pennsylvania. The witness's attention was drawn to the sky by a sound that resembled "flags flapping in a thunderstorm." Looking up, the witness saw what appeared to be a bird that had a wingspan of an estimated 10 to 15 feet and a head about three feet long. This is the most recent sighting of an incredible creature -- most often considered a myth -- known as a "Thunderbird." Sightings of these gigantic birds, apparently unknown to science, go back hundreds of years and are a part of many Native American legends and traditions.

Thunderbird Energy Corp (TSX-V: TBD) rose $0.035 (11.11%) to $0.35, on a volume of 14,500, just $0.11 above its 52 week low of $0.24. The financing facility with Macquarie Bank was closed according to a news release earlier this month. The deal, which was first announced in October 2007, had Macquarie providing up to $50 million US for the development of existing oil and natural gas projects currently belonging to Thunderbird and to fund future acquisitions. Macquarie Bank will have access to up to 13 million shares priced between $0.50 and $1.00 per share with 5 year warrants. Warrants will be restricted in the first year and only partially restricted during the second year.

Sierra Geothermal Power Corporation (TSX-V: SRA) were down $0.04 or -5.41% to $0.70, on volumes of 5,604, just below the 52 week high of $0.90. Sierra and Nevada Geothermal have agreed to an amendment to their option agreement on the Pumpernickle geothermal property. Completion of the earn-in schedule, consisting of cash payments to Nevada of $70,000, $4,000,000 worth of exploration and development expenditures, and issue of 200,000 of SGP common shares, will allow Sierra to acquire a 50% interest in the property.

Nevada Geothermal Power (TSX-V: NGP) stayed even at $0.99 though midday trading on Friday on volumes of 37,200, firmly in the middle of its 52 week range of $0.66 - $1.35. Nevada announced earlier this month that positive results from Well 25-14 at a depth of 2370 feet (722 metres). Testing on Jan 7th encountered temps of 378°F (192°C), longer term testing is planned and results should be in within a month. President & CEO Brian Fairbank stated, "We are very pleased with the success of how the development drilling is proceeding at Blue Mountain Faulkner I Power Plant. We have drilled approximately 20 MW net capacity from just three wells."

After witnessing the recent plunge in the markets influenced by the resource sector, the falling housing slump and employment issues, smart investors and hedge funds are shifting interests into other sectors. The markets are changing and investors are scared. The Bull Run that we have been use to over the past four years is starting to become more like a stampede in the other direction.

Stock markets are normally volatile, but investors have enjoyed a four-year run of below normal volatility and steady upward movement. Ups and downs, yes. But the Bull Run has been great over the past three to four years and has not ended as abruptly as many have predicted.

But while the end of the Bull Run has been predicted for more than a year, long-term investors shouldn't be worried. Of course, only if you know what you are doing.

First off, don't throw all your eggs into one basket.

Secondly, and most importantly, pick winners that last.

And pick winners that have little effect against the daily ups and downs of the economy. Visit to sign up free to receive your Special Report #1 and #2 for information on how to combat the markets or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.

We've seen oil markets spike, we've seen oil markets fall. We've seen wars, we've seen terrorist attacks. Chances are that the events that occur have a short term impact when you consider the overall factors of a 5-year forecast. We need to learn to take advantage of these economic factors. Think of homeland security.

Most investors -- and unfortunately far too many brokers -- go on a buying spree the minute a rally starts in a particular sector. Correspondingly, they panic at the first sign of a downturn and tend to sell off some great stocks -- right before the dead cat bounces.

But Maybach isn't about day-trading and making money fast. It's about being patient and learning the secret of how to get rich slowly. Visit to receive two Special Reports -- free when you sign up! Or visit for your free subscription and BONUS reports.
