Our Phaeton 40QTH motorhome as shown at the Sun City RV web site

Our 2012 Phaeton 40QTH motorhome is now listed at! You can view the listing, read the details, and see all the luscious photos by clicking on the link above. They did a great job of cleaning it up. It is so temptingly described and depicted I would be tempted to buy it! (Were we not SELLING it) Aside from several misspellings they did a good job in the description. I think they should have included a photo showing the slideout basement storage trays and others showing the inside of the basement compartment doors with the enhancements I made, and I will suggest those.

Elaine’s vegetable chopper broke last night and it was time to get a replacement at Bed, Bath & Beyond so we went there today. That was the second Vidalia Chop Wizard we had bought, and both broke at the hinge point for the chopping cover. This time we got an Oxo chopper; it only has one chopping grid so doesn’t provide for small pieces which we didn’t realize when we bought it so it will probably get replaced with something else.

Our next stop was Trader Joe’s so we could stock up on various items we buy there. Pete Petersen was along with us because he also buys a lot at Trader Joe’s. There are some dark chocolate items I like as well as some pecans. I spotted some Ghost Pepper Potato Chips and bought a bag; Pete and I tried them tonight and were disappointed that they don’t have much of the hot stuff.

Our final stop was at Costco, where Elaine bought several items. We like the larger packages of prunes available there and Elaine also bought me some smoked salmon.

One more trip for me to Aspen Dental this afternoon. This time it was for a filling and for an adjustment to the new bridge recently installed. There is a fit problem between bridge and gums and food is getting caught there. The dentist has made two adjustments now to try to solve the problem.

Ghost peppers
Ghost Peppers rated at over 1,000,000 Scoville units are 100 times hotter than Jalapenos

Speaking of ghost pepper, Pete introduced me to Ghost Pepper Tortilla Chips several weeks ago and I really like them. Ghost peppers (Bhut Jolokia) is not the hottest of peppers; it is rated at 1,041,427 Scoville Heat Units (SHU). Habanero peppers are rated at less than half that, at 500,000 SHU. The hottest is the Carolina Reaper at 2,200,000 SHU. Serano Peppers are from 10,000-30,000 SHU and Jalapenos are from 2,500-10,000 SHU by comparison, so Ghost Peppers are notably hotter – as in 100 times hotter than jalapenos. I bought three bags of the Ghost Pepper Tortilla Chips at Walmart a few weeks ago and am down to the last of the three. I took it to Wyoming last week and had Destry, Shane, and others try them since they like hot things. They did not finish even the first bite of the first chip! Too hot! I usually have 6-8 of them at a time as a snack.
