[dropcap]I[/dropcap] am in chocolate heaven right now, HUGE, and I mean HUGE thanks to Lee Newman the driving force behind Stouffville Academy of Music & Dance, the beating heart of the performing arts scene in Stouffville, for picking up some imported Dairymilk from a shady corner store somewhere in the Scarborough area. It’s all very clandestine, if I say too much all the expat Brits in the Durham region will be stampeding to her door ready to demand names, locations, apply thumbscrews, etc. Things could get ugly… so Lee, from the bottom of my Dairymilk-deprived heart…
