Meh... the lady didnt sound too happy about it, but I was like... I dont have it, I have packaged up all of the hops and they arent here. So she said that they would ship it to me free of charge, no kidding?

Not excited to send them, but they didnt argue the fact that I didnt get them.

The FoodSaver got a REAL workout today.

With the overages on the package weights, I got about 117 OUNCES of hops for $1.09 SHIPPED.

SO I figure that I saved about $.91 - $1.91/OUNCE

That comes out to $106.47 - $223.47

So, the $65 FoodSaver has paid for itself over and over again

That's pretty substantial.

Either that's your cell phone in your pocket, or else you are VERY excited about those hops.

Agreed! Don't take this the wrong way as I am sure you are a fine professional pilot (actually you should take it as a compliment) but if I were going to get on a plane and saw you in the captain's seat, the first thing I would ask the attendant is if they were sure you were old enough to fly the damn plane.

I do appreciate that, and take that as a compliment... I have my fair share of old ladies asking me if I am old enough to "drive" the thing. Yep... I am old enough to "drive" it and fly it. I know I freak people out, I just tell them that I am a prodigy
