COLD? Here’s something that will get your blood boiling

It’s 7 below zero in Chicago this morning with a wind chill of -27 degrees.  While that might not be cold if you live in Minnesota, it is cold enough to shut down schools here.  So, what do you do on a cold, cold, day?  Here’s a suggestion:  Watch a movie!

Here’s one:  “The Dark Side of Chocolate”, a short documentary about child slavery on West African cocoa plantations.  Hershey’s Chocolate announced today that they are going to use “simpler” ingredients in their chocolate products.  Nestlé announced something similar on Ash Wednesday.  Unfortunately, they still use cocoa that is not certified fair trade.  That means every chocolate kiss contains the “ingredient” of child slavery.  I say, Kiss ’em goodbye!
