I see SG is back on some shelves. Availability has been a problem. I have found suitable replacements with another blender. When I noticed stock, my first impulse was to order a crap-load. I resisted that temptation. Clearly, availability from SG could/will be a big problem with no solution. They've moved on and so have I. Since I'm no longer a fan, more SG will be available for the rest of you. Whats Dennis Miller say? "Didn't mean to go off on a rant". Be well.
