i'd google for it but feeling lazy today. :p iirc it's only the cocoa butter/ fat from the cocoa bean and none of the "chocolate liquor".

yep it's not 'officially' chocolate.

Perhaps Dogbyte can bring some Garibaldi's over when he comes to live. I'm never going to get any at this rate!

Not to mention the clothes!!

Every time Ii go back to London I just drool - so many stylish clothes to choose from.

I guess you can get nice things in the big cities here too*, but where I am it's just dreary.

(* I remember seeing some gorgeous outfits in Seattle when I was there a couple of years ago - ditto Chicago and NYC - though I never actually see anyone *wearing* such outfits...)

You certainly don't see anyone wearing stylish clothes here!
What shops did you see, as I haven't seen any :unsure:

It was on a street with lots of fancy stores - antiques, Persian rugs, art, books - quite close to the fish market (whatever it's called).

Pike Place Market. I will look when I am next there, though I never go there to shop.
Which could explain why I missed it!

Sometimes I bore myself with my own posts, so maybe that is it. For e.g. I just found six dollars in a pair of jeans I was about to wash. Has anyone else ever found any money in jeans they were about to wash and have a funny story, perhaps about what they then spent the money on? So you see..............
