Patricia, that sounds like a very nice weekend. It's always nice to get away and have a change of scenery, especially when it's with loved ones.

Patricia, enjoy your time with your son and his girlfriend. And, make him sweat in the kitchen, After all, you sweated over him when he was child. Paybacks are hell. 

Enjoy your trip!

Randy, that sounds like a great and rewarding project. I hope you have good weather and great scenery to enjoy. Happy travels. Don't let Sasquatch or the chupacabra get you!

I'm going to hate missing out on all this scintillating talk, but starting Fri, Apr 25th, I'll be gone (driving) to the Moab, Utah area to do a Wilderness Volunteer service trip repairing trails for a week. The leaders always have great food. Catch you in a couple.

Felaine, thanks for the story of the doctor and cholesterol.

Actually, if it grows on trees, it's a fruit (seed).

"Cocoa bean (also cacao bean,[1] often simply cocoa and cacao; Mayan: kakaw; Nahuatl: cacaua) is the dried and fully fermented fatty seed of Theobroma cacao, from which cocoa solids and cocoa butter are extracted. They are the basis of chocolate, as well as many Mesoamerican foods such as mole sauce and tejate.

A cocoa pod (fruit) has a rough leathery rind about 3 cm thick (this varies with the origin and variety of pod). It is filled with sweet, mucilaginous pulp (called 'baba de cacao' in South America) enclosing 30 to 50 large seeds that are fairly soft and white to pale lavender in color. While seeds are usually white, they become violet or reddish brown during the drying process."

I had a similar argument about avocados with my dad's doctor 30 years ago.  Dad had a minor stroke that impaired his ability to swallow solid food somewhat; one of the few things he could still manage without choking was avocado.  His doctor  "But they're loaded with cholesterol!" I said "How could they? They grow on trees; they are FRUIT."    It was a year or more later that the "experts" finally decided that avocados, olives, and other oily fruits contained "good" cholesterol.  BFD, eh?
