    Remember: A lot of the bidding occurs in the last minute of the auction. Submitting a bid when the auction has 15 seconds left will often win it.

    My latest eBay win was on some Iranian saffron, being shipped from Egypt. LOL!

    I have a hard time staying up that late. The bids I've been involved in go until almost midnight EST. I'll keep trying

    Congrats on your saffron. Can't say I'm very familiar with it other than i think it is a spice and I think it is yellowish/orangish in color
    If you want to try cross country skiing, start with a small country

    Saffron. We like to add a pinch to rice. Gives it a great golden color and a wonderful flavor.

    Default Tonight's Brew...

    Tonight I'm finishing off the Harpoon UFO - Unfiltered Offering - India Pale Ale.

    Nice. But then, Harpoon is on the top of my list of favorites.

    You can buy saffron rice in any grocery store, right here in the good old USofA, keeping our $$$ in this country and State. It's usually in the soup isle , It is yellow and has a nice rich flavor. I make it with Liguica and peas. The colors and the flavors compliment each other nicely.

    I note neither saffron or rice are grown in Maine, and although you can also buy spaghetti in a can, I prefer to make my own from scratch. LOL! You can usually buy saffron itself in nearly any grocery store, but if you prefer to use packaged mixes, go for it.

    Speaking of "keeping our $$$ in this country and State", did you know that Hannaford is owned by a Belgian company - Delhaize? And Shaw's is owned by a company based in Minnesota.

    Woo, Thank Goodness they pay their Maine Employees in USD.
    And if someone likes to eat Saffron rice alot or Use it in their cooking, They definatly should buy the spice. Didn't know they sold it in Hannaford, Cool!!! I figure , one could get it in the Mall.
    I do like Hannaford, Shaws is a little to expensive for me and you don't need a discount card at Hannaford. And Hannaford is closer to where I live. I hope I save a little gasoline,which hopefully helps in the long run to.
    But before too long Walmart will run the "store" world .
    Speaking of beer, Do you watch the Dogfish( I think That's the name) Brewery show. It was on last night. They went to egypt to get yeast spores from the air.MMMmmmmmmm
    Spores!
