(1) t's winter over the Harbor. Water temperature -- 29 degrees. (2) Now that's a Valentine's Day Present. This unique, two-piece chocolate heart box filled with gourmet handmade chocolates is truly a wonder to behold: over three pounds of our gourmet chocolate, this chocolate heart box is molded in milk, white, or dark chocolate (your choice) and then filled with heart-shaped truffles, caramel turtles, buttercrunch, giant dipped Australian apricots, and handmade chocolates. $50.00 (including shipping) Only available from Chocolate By Design's Online Store. I know this seems like a advertisement, but, really, you'll thank me. It has an amazing effect. (3) (For NG) Just thought you'd like this one.
