The EU

Google says the EU requires a notice of cookie use (by Google) and says they have posted a notice. I don't see it. If cookies bother you, go elsewhere. If the EU bothers you, emigrate. If you live outside the EU, don't go there.

Sweet Memory

For John, BLUFDark Chocolate helps you sleep, I am told.  Nothing to see here; just move along.

"Combat candy:  As M&Ms turn 75, a look at sweets in service".  This is an article by Mr Kevin Lilley, of The Army Times.
U.S. military-issued chocolate pre-dates the modern-day MRE, and even the C-ration.  With one of the service’s key suppliers celebrating a milestone this year, here’s a look at some sweet history.
And, thus flows the history.

One of the interesting parts to me is that M&M comes from a partnership of Mr Forest Mars Sr. (think Mars Bars (and Uncle Ben's Converted Rice)) and Mr William F. R. Murrie, formerly president of Hershey.  For World War II M&Ms had but a single customer — the U.S. military.

Wikipedia says it was the son of Mr William Murrie, Mr Bruce Murrie.
