I could understand that, but it hasn't been humid, and it's been unseasonably cool most days.

I like all of them. I'm convinced (he's never said) that my dad would buy oddball flavors, when we were kids, just so it would last long enough for him to have more than one serving. It didn't work. :P

I'm a simple man with simple tastes. Anything with chocolate can't be all bad. I would go so far as to say that chocolate, in and of itself, should be considered an important food group and a necessary component of good health.

A valiant effort.

But of course
Sadly, I don't get nearly enough of it. We have a locally made high quality choclate in Merida, but, due to the new world order, I haven't been in in over a month. And prolly a month more, except for Costco, which isn't really in the city.

I am not picking sides necessarily in the whole iPhone vs. Android debate, but from a telemedicine perspective the iPhone (or even an iPad) allows facetime which is far superior compared to going through a third party telemedicine site (we use doxy.me).

Traditionally you could NOT use facetime for telemedicine because it's not HIPAA (data privacy and so much more! law) compliant, but the feds have waived HIPAA for FaceTime at least for now during COVID19.

And so we start down the road of waiving our protections in the face of adversity. A slippery slope that one.

Some years ago I used to be able to get chocolate ice cream in a flavor called HEAVY BELGIAN CHOCOLATE. I've forgotten where I used to find it but it was not for causal chocolate users

I don't think waiving a well meaning but cumbersome data encryption rule for telemedicine is much to worry about.

Start? That was given up the day the first smartphone was installed in someones hand.

And Merida had a gelato shop which sometimes has 'chocolate amargo'. Simular I imagine. Right around the corner from the bar chocolate

Weird. Another last page lockout, but now clicking on the link for the last page sends me back two pages. :foo:

My current gelato of choice is like that - super chocolaty with dark chocolate chips in it. I only have one serving of it left in the freezer. It's a little expensive when it's not on sale, so I might forgo for a while.

Quoted for truth.

Oops, I didn't read the quote. I thought you were talking about the lifting of CV restrictions. :D

Chocolate tastes better, but all chocolate is too much.
