forestcats is getting better, but only when she rests. She was trying to persuade me that she's fine, now, and I urged her to keep it relaxed for another week or so, just to be certain, but I doubt that she'll listen.
I've been carrying it in my briefcase for some time, reading a little here and a little there, but yesterday I finished reading The True History of Chocolate by Coe and Coe. It had a lot of material on the very early history of the use of chocolate in Central America, as well as a lot about the introduction of chocolate into Western Civilization. There's even a few recipes. Pretty solid read.
