- The saying is great. Keeping calm is important. I don’t like it when people get out of hand. Plus carrying on is necessary, right?
- The history of this poster is quite interesting. click here for info Can you imagine, living in Great Britain during WWII? Good grief, they’d been a powerful nation for centuries. They were bombed, blitzed and realistically feared Nazi invasion. They moved their children from London to the country for protection. I could go on and on because. . . . I find history compelling. I’m actually loving this book: The Knight of Maison-Rouge. Marie Antoinette, the French Revolution. . . . maybe history’s not your thing?
Today, on the way home from work I stopped at Good Foods. The purpose being to purchase an organic dark chocolate bar. No, Hershey’s doesn’t cut it anymore. I want the good stuff. Like I wrote above, I’m not a drinker, so picking up a bottle of Kentucky bourbon on the way home doesn’t appeal. Am I addicted to chocolate? No, I’d say not. But it helps get me through the day, and hey, the message on the back of the chocolate bar says this: “By choosing Equal Exchange fairly traded products, you support a food system that builds stronger farming communities, creates a more equitable trade model, and preserves our planet through sustainable farming methods.”
So, I’m preserving our planet my eating chocolate. Not to mention good chocolate. Which helps me keep calm until my poster arrives. Did I mention I wasted some time at the post office today? Ugh! [keep calm, keep calm. . . ]
