Chocolate lovers rejoice!

leave a comment »

If your favorite chocolate had only half as much sugar,  yet tasted the same,  would you be happy?   I’d do cartwheels,  and the Nestle company has found a way  to achieve  just that by altering the structure of the sugar.   My taste buds and I will enjoy every extra morsel in a little more than a year,  but we will be the final arbiters as to whether the promise of the claims is met.

Chocolate rules!

leave a comment »

Hail another moment of what should be red-faced embarrassment for scientists,  health food addicts,  and government decrees!   It turns out that people who  eat chocolate  at least once a week see their memory and abstract thinking improve.

It’s good for your heart,  reduces stroke risks,  and helps protect your skin from the sun.   Eat more chocolate!

This is my idea of a true dream machine  —  a 3-D printer  which prints  in chocolate!   Stop that — it is a real machine.

Easter wars…

leave a comment »

Who is surprised that a three-year  study of coverage  reveals that network TV focuses almost entirely on the secular aspects of Easter?   Anyone?   Who is surprised the Texas  objects to  religious billboards?   On private property?  Whether you choose to recognize it or not,  religion is under attack,  and not just by Islamic extremists,  but by the viciously secular progressive movement,  which includes most bureaucrats and government officials.

On a more cheerful note,  read about  the efforts  of a Florida physician to share his knowledge of the Shroud of Turin,  and drool over  the gorgeous Easter eggs French patissiers and chocolatiers produce for this celebration.

Chocolate really  is good  for you!  And of course the food health cops don’t want us to actually eat any until they have determined why it’s good for you.   God forbid we should actually be able to enjoy what we eat.
