A train made entirely of chocolate has set a new Guinness World Record as the longest chocolate structure in the world. In a few pictures you can see onlookers. That will give you an idea of the size of of the chocolate bars, er, cars.
Maltese chocolate artist Andrew Farrugia spent over 700 hours
constructing the masterpiece. He said he came up with the idea of the
train last year after visiting the Belgian Chocolate Festival in Bruge:
"I had this idea for a while, and I said what do you think if we do this
realization of a long chocolate train, you know, because a train you
can make it as long as you like.
The yesterday I wrote about the Pooch Hotel. Now here is a surprise: One of my blog followers has a grandson who works at that Pooch Hotel. Small world.
A pastor, a doctor, and an engineer were waiting one morning for a particularly slow group of golfers. The
engineer fumed, "What's with these guys? We must have been waiting for 15 minutes!" The doctor chimed in, "I don't know, but I've never seen such ineptitude!" The pastor said, "Hey, here comes the greens keeper. Let's have a word with him." [dramatic pause]
"Hi Albert. Say, what's with that group ahead of us? They're rather slow, aren't they?" The greens keeper replied, "Oh, yes, that's a group of blind fire fighters. They lost their sight saving our clubhouse from a fire last year, so we always let them play for free anytime." The group was silent for a moment. The pastor said, "That's so sad. I think I will say a special prayer for them tonight." The doctor said, "Good idea. And I'm going to contact my ophthalmologist buddy and see if there's anything he can do for them." The engineer said, "Why can't these guys play at night?"
