Better than the Election

pdates!  It's been forever since I've updated this blog, and there's oh so much to tell you about.  There's been some fabulous new additions, interesting expeditions, some cool new places to shop.  But I want to start with some simple updates from some of the older posts.  For example:

  • In Sealing the Sleep Deal: Sheets I told you about Thomas Lee, and how (as far as sheets to price ratio goes) they're the best sheets I've ever found.  After using and washing and using and more washing, these are still holding up really well.  I had bought two sets, but remained on the lazy end of swapping them.  They lasted about 3 years of pretty regular use before I bought set #3 to replace set #1.  (Set #2 being the one I still forget to change out.)
  • In Flawless Fidelity - From China?? I introduced you to Jolida Audio.  What I failed to figure out until much later is that the Jolida amp pictured is actually built in Maryland.  I bought the successor to that, the Jolida JD801 Fusion and it's mindblowing.  Two things here:  1) Chinese tube amps are still a great value and an entry into the tube audio market.  2) What I discovered with Jolida though is that the brand was essentially stolen (there's a story there, but I'll save you) and a counterfeit brand (from China) was introduced.  And that's not cool by any measure.  Amp I bought will be reviewed later.
  • In Step Aside, Heinz - Real Ketchup Has Arrived I told you about Sir Kensington's ketchup and how it was not only awesome, but contained real ingredients.  Since then, Heinz has launched a new Organic version, and I have to say that I am impressed.  They replaced all of the junk ingredients with real ones, even taking out the dreaded corn syrup.  One should give credit where credit is due.  Try them both!
Please look forward to new updates; I'm excited to share some new product discoveries as well as some projects!
