After weeks… Back and forth. Art store visits.. Getting up in the middle of the night to ‘give it a go’, sit ….stand …back up…….stare….sit down again… It’s finally completed. Acrylic on canvas. 40×30″. *it will now be put in storage until the day comes to take it all out and hang them up*
https://youtu.be/QA3y6zFkaRE Performing it for a regular patron at a club I sing. I refused to try singing it for months. … plus I rarely record live. Too much of noise pollution defeats the purpose..if you can’t hear any of what the band is playing (my humble opnion)
Recorded live but without a video. We did some pluggins on stage. I do not own this song but I love it to bits.

People are consuming more cocoa than farmers are able to produce, according to two of the world’s largest chocolate makers, who say that a global shortage of chocolate might be on the cards.
Mars, Inc. and Swiss-based chocolate giant Barry Callebaut say demand is likely to outstrip production by one million metric tons by 2020, the WashingtonPost reports.
Seventy percent of the world’s cocoa is produced in the Ivory Cost and Ghana but growing conditions in West Africa have not been ideal.
Drought has ravaged many cocoa plantations and a fungal disease called frosty pod has wiped out between 30 to 40 percent of cocoa production. Farmers are looking to other cash-crops such as corn, to make their living.
At the same time, demand for the tasty treat keeps rising and this is likely to force the price of chocolate to rise.
