Few tidbits

1) City Harvest has clarified and they've received something like 1600 boxes. That's more like it... Still definitely less than NBC has received by now, but sometimes it takes time for the process to complete. The boxes have to arrive at the mail room, be sorted, and then delivered/picked up by City Harvest and/or any other charities that may be getting packages. Plus, some packages may have been damaged, and those could end up getting discarded for safety reasons. Anyway, bottom line is that hopefully everything that NBC gets is going to worthy causes.

2) As for the totals, we're now at close to $4,300 in donations. Not bad... I never thought we'd pass $1,000.

A few more tracking numbers from recent shipments (UPS):


Just FYI, they contain gift notes to Jeff Zucker: "TO: Jeff Zucker FROM: JOURNEYMAN fans. Please renew Journeyman. Please fight for good TV."

3) Journeyman "won" the poll at

41% of the 12,000+ votes went to Journeyman. Cool.

4) (a website owned by NBC and FOX) has put up episodes of Journeyman, after they were taken off of Sign up for the beta, if you haven't already, and then go to the Journeyman page to watch the episodes.

5) Again, sign up for the forums here to keep up to date:

Another Amazon order

Ordered 288 more boxes.

Totals: $4,086 in donations
2623 boxes ordered

Considering that many, many people have sent their own orders of Rice-A-Roni to NBC, (many of those orders being for multiple boxes and/or cases), the fact that City Harvest only claims to have gotten 400 boxes still doesn't sound possible to me. I'm still wondering if they're not reporting a "box" as "one box" even when it contains several boxes of Rice-A-Roni.

Hopefully we'll get some answers on this! One thing I'm sure of is that between our orders here and individual people sending in boxes, NBC has received and signed for well beyond 400 boxes, (and over 2000 from the donations here, not counting all the individual shipments). What they've done with them at this point is still in question.

Stay tuned!

Hey gang!

Once again, sorry for the delay. I will have an update tomorrow!

I got a comment in my last entry saying City Harvest has only received 400 boxes of Rice-A-Roni. Something is extremely fishy about that, as NBC has received wayyyyy more than that. Some of my Amazon orders were slow in fullfilment, but NBC has signed and accepted far more than that. The only thing I can think is that City Harvest was only counting CASES or boxes that contained multiple boxes of RAR as "one box." If anyone wants to look into that for me, please do.

As I said, I'll update with donations and new orders tomorrow, and dig up all the package tracking numbers to confirm that all the Amazon orders have been delivered.

Again, something is fishy, as I've places orders of over 300 boxes of Rice-A-Roni from EACH of 3 or 4 different online vendors, and I've only had one Amazon shipment refused (which I then reordered), so NBC had received way more than that. Perhaps they have given some of the RAR to other charities, or maybe they're holding onto a large quantity at this point.

If I get a chance, I'll do some digging with the folks at City Harvest and NBC, but if anyone else wants to do the legwork on that it would be MUCH appreciated.

Back soon!
