Welcome back!
Thanks for that tidbit. A sad tale on multiple levels, if true. I'll enjoy the last one I have.

I'm trying to explore other blenders but I can't seem to stop craving Pepin Garcia sticks. Unfortunately my wallet and palate are at odds. AJ Fernandez looks like a likely next target. I have a Man O War and maybe a Diesel.
