Good Thursday Afternoon Salsa Fans!

T minus 2 weeks now Salsa Peeps! It looks as if I might receive the Shipping Container to the house in Portugal and head back State Side for the Fall as Miranda will still be working for the foreseeable future. I know this seems like it has been going on forever (and it really has!) but now time is Ticking Fast!!

A few weeks ago, I advised T-5 Grow Lighting Assemblies for sale. I still have a few left if anyone is looking for adjustable lighting over their seedling for winter and early spring Starts.

Also, I have this 20 shelf Catering Trolley on Castering wheels. It comes with 10 Shelves. Here is what I was going to do for early Starts. Since the trays can be positioned at different levels, I was going to put LED Button Type Lights on the underside of the Trays. Once your seedlings germinate, you can move the tray up or down to keep the lights at the correct height above the plants for optimal growing conditions. Who is interested?? Besides this idea, this makes a great shop storage/craft cart, etc. Email me ASAP if you are interested, please.

Hang tight, C and F. Still going to happen.

Good Thursday Evening Salsa Fans!

I should have sent this last night, but I needed to sleep on my thoughts and ended up taking the High Road. Here is the Cliffs Note Version:
The stormy weather has turned from this (Thursday) morning, and it is a beautiful crisp first fall evening. I have departed the “Homeless Suites” in Ashburn and find myself house-sitting in my old neighborhood. I will spend a little time here before I depart to Portugal in October. So Great to be back. Feels like I never left. Looks like a Great Evening for a Walk-A-Bout on the Old Property. Relax Salsa Fans, you know I would Never do that. ### ###xx ###x ###### ###x xx ### ###### ######. X###x ###x ###x ######x ######x!
Now I am REALLY taking the High Road. Decided to Delete the above text (even more "Cliffier" than before), as it is not worth my effort and would only subject you to something that is not so nice. So as such, I have nothing else for you this week. Promise to be better next week!

My guess is that neighbors will Know their neighbor by their actions. Absolutely no concern of mine. Portugal is not that far away now; 18 Days to Wheels UP!

Good Sunday Morning Salsa Fans, (Looking for Larger Luggage donation. See Below)
I hope everyone is enjoying this great stretch of weather we have been having. Sorry I missed Thursday. I have been very busy assisting coordination of the loading and routing of my shipping container. Apparently, it heads to the Netherlands, off-loaded, and re-loaded on the ship that sails to Lisbon. So, no different than your FedEx packages. Should be able to have my Handler process it through Customs in less than a month. There are a few “Hoops” I need to take care of in Portugal before the Container arrives, so the actual count-down timer has finally begun!

In the meantime, I am trying to sell the last of my effects that have been loaded in storage in Leesburg. I have 5 or 6 T5 (Florescent Bulb Size) Quad Growing Light Systems. They retailed at $159.00 and I am looking to get $50 for each, but would consider a lower price if someone wanted ALL of them. I also have a 6-light system for $75. Most of them are very gently used and in very good condition. I hung them above my Heirloom Tomato and a variety of Hot Pepper Seedlings. It is very easy to set up a system to be able to raise and lower the lights above the seedling to 1) get the plants started inside and early, ahead of the growing season and 2) keep the seedling from becoming spindly, stretching for the light. What? Over? Nothing is Over until we Decided it is. Was it over then the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? Germans? Forget it, He’s rolling……Who’s with me? Send an email (or Facebookers can PM me) if you are interest in one, some, or all the Grow Lights.

I also have a large Ridgid wet/dry shop vac, a digital access Fire-Safe Sentry SAFE, and a Blower, Trimmer, and 16-inch Chainsaw all by Stihl. Anyone have an interest in an Antique Refrigerator by SERVEL that was powered by natural gas. Why do I have it? A Very Long Story.

I am Still looking for used, larger luggage that someone might have so that I may move items that didn’t make it to the shipping container. Looking to re-purpose and use one-way, then re-purpose to someone else again. Anyone have anything to donate as they upgrade to more manageable, carry-on type of luggage? Thank you.

Maybe one day I will see YOU in Portugal!!

Good Thursday Afternoon Salsa Fans…..Crazy Days. Neglected to send this yesterday,
Thank you for hanging in and continuing to follow my Path to Portugal. For the next few weeks, I am afraid my Thursday Announcements will not be very exciting but will continue the “Bridge” to more exciting times.

By now, your Salsa has all but expired unless you planned ahead and dropped some in your freezer. Ray last week, took my advice and Purged long-forgotten items in his Fridge. His Salsa had passed its Prime but behind it, Ray found a Treasure. 2 unopened jars of Kosher Pickles still well within their expiration. (Keep the pickles Under the top level of the brine, and you should be able to enjoy them beyond the expiration date) He crushed the first jar that day, and I would imagine the second one was scheduled for rations.

Haven’t yet searched for used Luggage on FB Market Place, but I am looking for used larger luggage that someone might have to move items that didn’t make it to the shipping container. Looking to repurpose and use one-way, then repurpose to someone else again. Anyone have anything to donate as they upgrade to more manageable, carry-on type of luggage? Thank you.

Maybe one day I will see YOU in Portugal!!

It IS a Good Thursday afternoon Salsa Fans,
Sorry I missed your Announcement last week. I am sure y’all know why I missed it. It was a Battle to the Finish getting out of my house in the dark last night. Purged about half of our stuff. Will Purge more of the nonsense we shipped, as I did not have time to streamline everything we have before the packers came. Word of the Day: P U R G E. It is a great feeling. If I can offer you anything more, start NOW so you do not end up in the situation I was faced with.

Who was with me when I used the pictured Rocks as my Markers with my “Once-Upon-a-Time” Taster Station? Please reach out to me and tell me a story/memory/etc. of my beginnings, first memory, etc. For those of you don’t know, I started at Gilbert’s Corner in 2015, where I was the 6th active Vendor. I started with Ghost Pepper Salsa, added Pickles, then almonds. And you know the rest of line. I enjoy creatively using Ghost Pepper to create new products such as my Ghost Pepper Peanut Brittle. Who knows what my next product would have been. My GLF Business was just a little side hustle outside of my job as a Learjet Pilot. When Covid hit, my occupation as a Contract Pilot came to a screeching halt. I decided to elevate the Side Hussle into my Main Hussle, as I was not planning on converting my pilot’s license from FAA to EASA anyway, when I moved to Portugal. You’re welcome! Marty was a huge fan of the Last of my product line, Tzatziki. Thank you, Marty for your weekly restock!

Beyond Marty, (I know you do not want me to mention all my regulars, because you all know who you are!!) I want to Thank All of you for years of Support and Patronage. I am going to miss all of you. I am still an email away and promise to keep the Thursday “Blog”, formally Announcement, alive. I would love for you to stay with me for my Once-a-Week ONLY update on Thursday. As for Your Journeys, I would like to hear updates of your adventures as well!

Thinking of a new Tag-Line here since I will not see YOU at the Corner….any ideas?

It is a Sad Thursday Salsa Fans,
It appears that the GLF and Salsa King’s Reign has expired at Gilbert’s Corner and Northern Virginia. No way I make it out to the Corner again. Just into my 8th Year at the Corner! Now, I am 20 years in my house and 9 days left to Vacate.

This is not the way I wanted to Bow Out, but I simply cannot afford the time. Where did the time go??

Please stay with me on the weekly email subscription. I will continue to Post on Thursdays and keep you posted on my new adventure. I will elaborate more about this in the next 3 or 4 weeks before I depart to Portugal. I would love for y’all to stay with me. It is only once a week. I promise to show you Portugal, Europe, and Beyond!

I am not sure I will be able to prepare an official “Yard Sale” for Saturday, but please, if you have an interest in the TON of stuff on and in my property, email me and I will send my address. Not proud of the way the property looks right now, but I have to move things before the “Got Junk” equivalent comes out next Friday. Please help me keep things out of the Landfill. I have suggested prices for things, but nothing will be marked. Please just make me fair offer and take my stuff away to a good home. I will be available Saturday and Sunday until late afternoon. I wish I could share all the pictures I have taken of stuff I have. Make an inquiry if there is something you need.

THANK YOU for years of Support!

Good Thursday Evening Salsa Fans,
As previously reported, Garden Lodge Fresh will miss this, and next weekend. I hope to see all of you one more time sometime during the August 20-21 weekend. Things are going slow at the house. I have a workshop full of building materials, hardware, tools, etc. If you need anything, please send me an email, and come out to the house and grab some things. I still have some garden and planting things as well. Also, a bunch of things for the kids, ages 2 and up. And, my 2018 Dodge Ram will be coming up for sale in early to mid-September. Great condition and only 35K miles.

Pictured: After all my years of buying back your jars, I actually have some jars to sell. Thank you, Walmart, for not accepting them back in unopened boxes after the thousands of jars I bought from you over the years.

Hopefully, one more time, I will see YOU at the Corner.

The product is superior and the customer service is fantastic! My wife is fricken picky as all get out, and she loves his stuff. I like the fact that Dave will custom blend it to meet your acceptable level of heat. Before I forget, I should point it that Dave really tries to learn his customers names.

Hi there, I have visted your stand a couple times at Gilberts Corner. I am usually there to by some cream puffs for my wife. I wish to know if you would do consignment of potted Thai pepper plants. They are in gorgeous shape and all stand about 10 inches high with the yellow peppers already clustered at top. I have close to 50 potted plants ready to sell to a good home. Again just wondering if I would drop ten off if we could discuss using you as a vehicle for resale.
Just a suggestion Dave! For the large families or the hardcore salsa lovers! 😎
thanks for the doggie treats Salsa Dave! And thanks for making the best salsa for my humans!! ~ Murphy
