Oddly enough, we’re not shopping online any more or less because we’ve been in the house. Mary has been reading a lot, which helps her in stressful times, so she’s bought a few books from Amazon, and she’s bought yarn for a project she has going, but again, nothing out of the ordinary.
We have bought a couple of culinary delights online. About a month ago, we ordered some chili pepper spices from Rosetta’s Farm, run by a friend I used to work with. He dropped out of the corporate world a few years ago and now runs a farm in New Jersey, growing chili peppers. As he says on his website, they grow one crop a year, and sell until they’re finished. And the spices are great, ranging from mild to wild. Bill’s a good friend, and if you order from him, tell him I sent you. It won’t get you a discount, but still, he’s a buddy.
We also bought some tamales from Fat Mama’s Tamales in Natchez, Mississippi. We haven’t tried them yet, because they just got here yesterday, but I have a feling it’s money well spent.
I’ve purchased the latest albums from two smooth jazz guitarists I like, one from Nils called Caught In The Groove, and the other from Chris Standring called Real Life. They’ve both been doing mini-concerts online since the quarantine, since they’re both grounded, as it were, with shows canceled, so I wanted to support both. Both albums are fantastic, as you’ve probably guessed.
So, that’s what we’ve been up to here.
