Sorry, am late in posting, it’s been a hectic weekend. BTW, shouldn’t even be apologizing, giving reasons why I’m posting when I am, as if it’s anybody’s business … for being busy, living my life. On second thought – apology retracted! Found this perusing discussion boards comparing the Wolfgang Puck blender to Vitamix. Loved lacey1’s memorable one-liner summation! Yeah y’all, Listen to chickenbutt! – and def pick/stick w/ Vitamix!!
