Yum...Thanks, Sush. That hits the spot. Think I'm going to grill outside tonight. I use Rainee's barbeque sauce. We don't carry it yet, but I think we're going to start stocking it. It's really nice and isn't loaded with sugar.


DH is out pulling weeds. I banished him to the yard and away from the tv! He's had his second glass of wine, so he's 'way too entertaining right now, anyway. Drives me a bit batty!

I read the posts and your situation, chef. I was cheated on eBay, too, although most of my purchases were fine. I ordered a Rowe pottery pitcher that looked fine in the picture, and the description said it had never been used, just displayed. When I received it, it obviously had been designed to have a lid, which was missing, and the inside was dirty as if flowers and water had been stored in it for a long time -- it was discolored. I voiced my objections to the seller, and she told me it never had a lid and had just sat on her counter without anything in it. Not true.

She also had taken weeks to ship it, and at first I was very nice about her oversight and told her not to worry and that I wouldn't give her a bad feedback. Then I received the item and saw the condition and really should have given her bad feedback. I ended up giving no feedback at all. I'm a wuss.

Well, I usually try to give folks the benefit of the doubt, so that's why I posted about my Ebay seller here.

Cause if I was picking on her without good cause, I wanted to know. I hate to be mean to folks when I don't have to.

I knew you guys would set me straight. Thanks.

There are a few bad apples out there, but most of the sellers are good.

I am sorry about your bad experience and rejoice over our good transactions.
