We've been married for forty-five (that's 45) years, and the spark is still there. Not the same as when we were young and lusty, but ours is still a deep love.
Chocolate is a winner, always has been and will always be. Maybe it is just me, but there you go.
Swizterland is by far the best chocolate in the whole wide world. Maybe it is just me.... My daughter Mary escorted us to Chailler's Factory, one of the founders of the Swiss industry.
Take! Taste! For free! As many as you want!!! Seriously!
The history of how cocoa powder morphed into amazing editible heaven happened here in Switzerland.

|To think that what we know as cocoa all started here long before Spain claimed the Aztec world.|
If you are giving chocolate to your beloved, go for the gusto and buy really goood chocolate. You both will appreciate the quality and taste.
***While we waited for our self-guided tour, we drank hot chocolate in the cafe. It was so thick that we could almost use a spoon. And it was so awesome that I consumed it quickly. Five minutes later, my head exploded in a brain-busting migraine. After throwing up, I huddled in a dark place. Fortunately, I had emergency vicodin/narcotic, took some, and was back to my chipper self in minutes.
Note to self: take it easy on amount eaten, especially the dark chocolate.
