I just did catch-up with your recent e-mails..been traveling a fair amount...Look forward to hearing what you come up with. As far as Mtn. Fresh goes have you had any recent chatter...they hired a guy who knows everything out of B'ham...you may know him from V Richards grocery or specialty..He's driving that bus right now. The store is supposed to undergo some changes but not much yet.The owners are not around alot but the new consultant is every other week or three...keep me posted. Ciao, M.
I haven't quite worked out the delivery piece yet. I do have a pretty good customer over in Asheville that I just opened up and was thinking if Mt. Fresh, Holly and a few other people wanted to order that maybe I could work something out with one of the produce companies that comes down to the Farmer's Mkty since we are so close. I'd really like to open that territory up, but will have to see how it pans out. In yor case if JT is buying, you could piggy back with him if he's freighting or picking up when he's in town. Tell him I say hello and I hope to be able to make a trip up when the weather's nicer. BRRRRRR it's cold down here and I bet your freezing your hiney off up there!
I had dinner with JT and his partner, Glenn.They have a consultant working with them ...seems to be on the right track in theory.Changes are hard to happen when everything is so dead up here.What will you do to get your product up here in the summer? I looked at all your offerings online, quite interesting ! Keep me posted
Hey kid, So you're a FOHBOH....how's it going.The winter has been very quiet....and relaxing. Just thought I'd say hey...Told JT at mountain fresh about you're new position. They are working with a guy out of Birmingham who might be a great new customer for you. Later, Marty
Great to hear from you. I see Matthew occasionally and ask him to say hello for me. As a matter of fact, I just saw him a few weeks ago and he told me that you two got married. Congratulations!! You guys are perfect together! I am getting geared up to add a food and beverage section to our website. We are on the verge of launching our storefront (you can See it Here). Email Me back your contact information (v-card if you use Outlook), and I will put your new information into my contact list.
You know the drill - money is tight so your spouse tells you to not spend too much money. So you start 'brown-bagging-it' to work. You feel a little foolish, maybe a little humiliated, that you’re forced to do this but you have no other choice. So you make up some story for your co-workers like, 'I’m trying a special diet' so you don’t look like a cheap-skate.

Perhaps you’ve punched out a paper doll or folded an origami swan? TED Fellow Manu Prakash and his team have created a microscope made of paper that's just as easy to fold and use.

Vending machines generally offer up sodas, candy bars and chips. Not so for the one created by TED Fellow Gabe Barcia-Colombo. This artist has dreamed up a DNA Vending Machine, which dispenses extracted human DNA, packaged in a vial along with a collectible photo of the person who gave it. It’s charming and quirky, but points out larger ethical issues that will arise as access to biotechnology increases.
