chocolate apricots

Hm, my Blatherchat has been spammed. I have to wonder how they got there...are they searching for 'add your own message' bulletin boards? They must be making a lot of enemies fast.

Joel Polowin has a WONDERFUL idea for apricots: "Make an incision in the side of a dried
apricot and then cut a pocket, as if it were a pita bread. Stuff with semi-sweet chocolate chips. Microwave for just a few seconds, until
the chocolate is warm and squishy. If you keep the incision small, the gooey chocolate won't leak out. " Yum. I have to try this out.

Jeff still hasn't noticed the Enhanced Apricots.

Sent out Inklings today. Over 28,000 subscriber rate seems to be picking up a bit. Rand has an article in this issue (he interviewed screenwriter Michael Druxman).
