    :(

    I just received this from Andrea, son of Antonio the founder of GINB:

    "I have some bad news a cylinder blew up in my fathers hand on Saturday the injuries are very severe he is in ICU at the moment still unconscious I might be tardy in reply as I need to stay by him all we can do now is pray and hope for the best.
    Andrea"

    This came as a real shock to me as I have known Andrea and Antonio for over five years. I pray that he will recover and be able to continue with his hobby which became a passion.

    The stock making business has been run by Andrea for some years, allowing Antonio to take a back seat and enjoy his hobby. The business will continue as normal.

    I'd ask those of you with GINB stocks to say a prayer for Antonio.

    I will update this thread when I have more news.
