Hi ChileHeads (& future chileheads),
For anytime after this buy up to the 2004 buy and beyond, Allenlee
Pierce, my son, set up a site Friday, 9/19/03 (with freeware) that will
help keep track of your orders:
Bay Area Red Savinas by Art Pierce http://www.allenlee.com/hotshop/
You'll still need to mail me a check at my address below.
Warning: Jalapenos are about 5K-50K Scoville Units hot; red savinas are
about 300K-500K S. U. hot.
The hot sensation will (start to) go away on its own in 10 to 30
minutes, depending on your unique individualness. It takes about 3
months of daily chile eating to build up a decent tolerance to the
capsaicins <= the hot of chiles. (Let your tolerance lapse and even
mild hot sauce will be "strike" you as mildly hot.)
Capsaicins are soluble in alcohol and lipids (oils or fats), but not
water. So booze is sort of ok for pain relief, but milk, cheese
and cream have the requisite lipids AND also, their casein protein is
attracted to the same pain receptors as the capsaicins. So after
the capsaicin is lifted off the pain receptors by dissolving into the
lipids, the casein blocks some of the pain receptor sites so the
dissolved capsaicins cannot re-attack. (I prefer vanilla Haagen-Dazs.)
If any of you people at SGI, Inktomi, Raycer - or elsewhere - don't want
to hear about these annual buys in the future,
let me know and I'll take you off this email list.
Better yet, if 2 or more at SGI - or elsewhere - do want red savinas,
please get one person to handle it
& I'll get the red savinas to you through that person.
On a hard drive crash, I lost my lists of past red savina buyers in
1998=>2001, so please forward this email or tell all your chilehead or
chilehead friends about this annual red savina buy (especially those of
us in Northern California).
The buy and pick-up:
5-lb. boxes at $15/box. They are charging me $10/5-lb. box. The $1/lb.
difference will be for trucking expenses and the remainder will
go to the 501(c)(3) nonprofit: California Grey Bears. If you wish,
they'll send you a form saying how much you gave to them - that
extra $1/lb. - for your IRS tax deduction. Coordinate through our office
manager, Pat Brown. She's at 831.479.1055. California Grey
Bears is listed at Guidestar:
Let me know how many 5# boxes you want.
People who want less than 5 lbs. can get with friends and get a total of
5 lbs together or contact Scott Ashkenaz or me and we'll try
to accommodate you: first come, first serve. Flash Gordon, you're
already first - and only, so far - in this sub-5# group.
Send checks to me at:
714 Almond Drive
Watsonville, CA 95076-3608
Time for pick-up will be set after all orders are in & paid for. It's
beginning to look like pick up will be Sa/Su, 10/18 & 10/19,
but will back it off to Sa/Su, 10/25 & 10/26, if there's a flurry of
last minute responses to this last email. If a weekend isn't
convenient for you, you can come to Grey Bears 8:30 AM - 3:30 PM, Monday
through Friday, Lynn Francis, executive director will take
care of you.
Pick up will be at the middle cooler at California Grey Bears:
2710 Chanticleer Ave.
Santa Cruz, CA
People for whom Santa Cruz, CA is inconvenient or impossible: I can also
Airborne Express (used to be least expensive - I don't know
if their prices went up along with their recent DHL merger) you
overnight; you do the research and add that to the $15/box.
I am using the SpamArrest Challenge/Response email filtering software
system, so if you respond by email, for the first time only: you'll have
to type in whatever the word is at their site in order to get your email
address on the approved list (mass spammers who send out
2,500,000+ at a time don't have the time or software - yet - to overcome
individual challenge/responses. And no C/R s/w I know of
automatically approves you as ok when I send email to you if you know of
C/R s/w that does, please tell me about it. I'm at:
