Urban Organic

For over a decade, the Brooklyn company Urban Organic has been offering New Yorkers a weekly delivery of certified organic fruits and veggies from organic farmers' cooperatives, distributors, and local farmers. In spite of all the johnny-come-latelys, they're still MUG's pick for reliably tasty, fresh, chemical-free produce.

You get a choice of box sizes, starting at $24.99 (about a dozen items), up to the Super-Value Box ($54.99) and there's a one-time membership fee of $25. The Original Value Box, $34, contains 15-18 items ($34) and will include things like arugula, carrots, peppers, potatoes, bananas, tangerines, and pears. There's lots of seasonal variation and you can let them know if you want them to omit certain items. You can also buy a range of organic groceries.

Urban Organic's motto, 'save money, save time, save the planet', may sound like a stretch, at least until you take your first bite.

Re Klipsch:
What? Another famous person from Hope? That makes four now—Melinda Dillon (Ralphy's mom in A Christmas Story and one of Paul Newman's bedmates in Slapshot), Bill Clinton, Mike Huckabee, and now Klipsch.

Re Peppers:
I have seen you list Hot Sauce World several times as a source for hot sauces. I wanted to make you aware of another store that is an outstanding source for hot sauces. It is Peppers located in Rehoboth Beach, DE. It is a wonderful store that claims to have the world's largest collection of hot sauces. I have been in there numerous times and am always astounded by the number of hot sauces, salsas and related products they sell. In addition to having their store, their products are also available on-line. 

Thank you for linking to the article about Mr. Dutt. One of my daughters was in his science class last year at PS6. He was on a trip with the whole 5th grade class on a beautiful sunny day the day he passed away. It was a terrible shock to everyone, and he is dearly missed. There were many tributes to him from the 5th graders at their graduation ceremony a few short weeks later. I heard his wife was pregnant with their first child when he passed – the little one must have been born by now! And the cycle continues…
