BIG APPLE, BIG CHOCOLATE FIX ...!

                             

I'm in New York for an industry meeting today but something tells me that there won't be any Big Apples on the menu this time.  My hotel, the Crowne Plaza in Times Square, is right next to a Hershey's Chocolate Store featuring a 16-story chocolate bar and across the street from M&M World, a candy emporium selling nothing but M&Ms.  Not so long ago, Times Square was considered dangerous.  Now it looks like Candyland and smells like Hot Chocolate.  Who knows, maybe all this "revitalization" is really just a conspiracy from the American Dental Association ...!

Ooooooooh gosh, I can see it now! I've always been a Chock-O-hallic from the word GO. So it's not to much of a stretch of my imagination  to picture myself all burnt out and crazzzzzzed in Time Square...Be safe...and happy globe trotting my friend.....Kit

We have a bread factory a few miles from here and driving past it in the summer is like breathing in heaven.  I think it's the best smelling place in all of corn country Indiana.
