OK, enough already with price gouging

I just received an offer, as I'm sure many others did, for "beta testing" of a new chocolate from a particular company.  Cool.  Get to sample 3 different types, provide feedback, yada, yada.  Then I saw the price.  For 3 "shipments", each containing two 25-gm samples (total of 150 gm, or about 5 oz.)  it was about $50.  That figures to be about $160 on a pound-for-pound basis.  To me, that's really pushing it, especially given that the stuff is totally untested.  For a "beta test" the price…

Trying out the new door

Frank brought the new door over today so we could see it in place and choose between several inserts. He does amazing work!
