Great accents for a meal here. The bulk gourmet chocolate is wonderful in moderate amounts. The locally made Chocolate, from Charleston is the best I've ever head. Thrilled so see so many local producer's products here. The South, for all its faults, produces some of the finest food products on Planet earth and we don't need to go further to prepare really extraordinary meals. Italy is great and I love being there and eating their food with them. I was in Sienna once, at a Contrade dinner out on the street, just like you see in the Movies. Their families made the cheese, pasta, sausage, wine, olive oil and vegetables that were part of our meal. I met the people whose families had owned those farms, factories and cheese houses for centuries. There is no greater celebration of a culture than to eat it's food grown and made by the hands of people connected to its land. Sometimes on very special occassions we hold a dinner at our home and everthing on the table comes from within 100 miles of our house. This place makes that much easier.

I watched It's a Wonderful life outdoors at a neighborhood screening in the freezing cold and got a little metal bell to prove it.
I know several of the rose sellers and they're good kids trying to earn a little pocket change, peddling on the street of Porgy's city. If these kids don't try to earn money, they're bums. If they do, some people resent that. I suppose if their parents were rich and they were roaring around town in a BMW from bar to bar, that would be OK The city has worked hard to make this program work for all concerned. Evidently nothing works for some people.
The hatred which vomits onto radio and the internet from South Carolina's right wing community is the true representative of what SC is and is becoming. Decent, compassionate people are gradually being driven out of the state or just leaving for better opportunities elsewhere. They're being replaced by retirees looking of places with relatively cheap real estate, low taxes and low paid domestic help. We're being turned into a third world colony of the right wing United States, much like a beach resort in a third world country.
This effort was supported locally by several member organizations of the Charleston Chapter of the SC Progressive Network. On Facebook https://www.facebook.com/SCPRONET.CHS
As of yesterday, the website was working efficiently. Local Navigators have stopped using paper forms and moved into fully electronic applications and marketplace selection, which can now be accomplished in a single, one hour session. The website improved markedly late last week to the point where online applications were being processed efficiently up to the "electronic" signature which provides secure authorization to process them. By Sunday the marketplace portion was working fine as well.
