Spice Trade

By "spice trade" I refer to something positive, namely our bid to up the IQ around our spanking new C.P. Snow chasm-spanning curriculum. Getting the right wiring takes time, as we test the various subsystems.

To "spice it up" means to "kick it up" i.e. "to take it up a notch". These are idioms associated with adding more hot sauce to make a dish less bland. Another idea is you don't need a lot.
