Swine Flu and Chocolate...

Yes, we have the dreaded H1N1. It's long (fevers lasting 6-7 days!) but relatively mild as far as flu goes. I never would have guessed that this is THE bug. I'm not saying it's been fun; I just remember what it's like to get hit really hard with the flu...And this doesn't compare. Six of us have had it or do have it (my husband appears to be immune) and I thank God that we are emerging in good health. I am also grateful that we don't have to fear the thing any more. In a few more days we'll be completely in the clear.

On another positive note, I have had some extra time to peruse the holiday catalog of my favorite chocolate company. Malley's is a local business which is even better. When I discovered that these locally produced goodies are also our fundraising opportunity for the Professor's volleyball team this year   I knew I was in trouble. Doesn't purchasing one's own fundraising goodies rather defeat the purpose? Why couldn't we sell those little frozen hot dogs wrapped in pretzel dough? Those are really unappealing. I would never buy them. But chocolate....

Chocolate covered potato chips. Has anyone tried these? Yummy.
Chocolate covered pretzels are way more fun to eat when they look like this:)


NutMallow ...My BIL's favorite.


Malley's Ark ...Jellybean's favorite:)

If you don't live nearby, you can still purchase their confections here .

Looking for a great field trip in the Cleveland area? Malley's offers tours of it's 60,000 square foot facility Monday through Friday; 9:30am-4:00pm. This Free self-guided tour takes you through a windowed hall that overlooks operations...And dumps you out into their lovely gift shoppe:).
