Even in the red at the end of the month.

Why do I want to add a new Amazon store ID? I just created a new website, and I want to track Amazon sales for that site separately from this site. In the link-creator, there are two drop downs – store ID and tracking ID. I successfully figured out how to add a tracking ID.

Mmmm… prickly pear ginger kombucha just begging to be poured into a glass of ice!
Over the past thirty years, kombucha has slowly crept into mainstream awareness in America. I remember visiting my grandparents as a kid and thinking they were so weird because they made tea from a big, white, slimy “mushroom” they kept in a casserole dish in the fridge.
