  New deal on Amorphophallus konjac (fwd)

Apparently some were shocked that I might throw out hundreds of A. konjacs
because I had exhausted the supply of "large volume buyers". I insisted on
large volumes for 2 reasons. 1) It costs the University 23.00 to do the
paperwork accepting a grant and they therefore shun small grants 2) packing
and shipping would be a problem on lots of small orders vs. one big one.
Here is one possible solution for all out there who still want cheap konjacs.

1) There would be a ten dollar shipping and handling fee on orders under 125.00
2) The check would have to be made out to "Michael Marcotrigiano", not
"University of Massachusetts". You would lose the tax deduction but I would
then be able to combine all the checks into my personal account and then
give a "gift" to the University (this has been done before - I know it
sounds weird). This combining of small checks would prevent the 23.00 per
check processing fee. ** SO IF YOU WANT KONJACS EMAIL SOON - THEY ARE READY
TO POP. PRICES BELOW.

Tiny corms the size of large peas are 85 cents each
Golf ball or near golf ball size corms are 4.00

All orders require a 10.00 shipping and handling fee since I'd need to hire
a student and buy little boxes, pay shipping, etc. My email address is:
