Yes, no sugar in chocolate, originally. It was Euros who put choc and sugar together. -- Olmecs ad Aztecs would stand on a chair or stool and pour it from a height to get it to foam up, though haha

Hi, Tamar, everyone! Just getting clear of a big day of piles moving and mess shifting. Two new 8' tall shelves occupying the last possible 2 sq. feet of floor space -- and they're already crammed full. Sigh. Books. We will die under a pile of books.

Sounding great, Tamar!

Haha rich, good reason to have cats.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:15pm Handy Haversack:

Ha, chresti, exactly the step I skipped! "Here they come with te add-ons!"

rich, I have a feeling that the instant the cats break that barrier, Bagpipe will have to get involved or risk losing out!

remains devoured by bagpipe is a nice headline

I hope to find that BAS-One's freestyle with the Bagpipe lyric is climbing the charts.

The obokano Kenyan lyre that Grandmaster Masese plays sounds similar to the Ethiopian lyre, the begena, which is related to the ancient kinnor that someone like, say, Jesus might've heard. Sort of avant-garde sounding!

There's no way to not clickystar this episode.
Tamar always feels like - how would you say? A guided meditation thru internal places international artists take you. There's an arc to her episodes - uniting the internal & the exotic - with a particular lovely texture - & yet an intoxication or trance element. A magic carpet as befits the Program title.
