NATIONAL CHOCOLATE DAY!

National Chocolate Day, on October 28th, recognizes one of the world's favorite tastes. While many specific chocolate related holidays exist throughout the year, National Chocolate Day celebrates all things chocolate!!!
As America’s favorite flavor, chocolate is well-deserving of its own day of honor. Chocolate comes from the seed of the tropical cacao tree. Cacao has been cultivated for at least three millennia and grows in Mexico, Central America, and Northern South America. The earliest known documentation of using cacao seeds is from around 1100 BC. Since cacao tree seeds have a very intense, bitter taste, they must be fermented to develop the flavor. Once fermented, the beans are dried, cleaned, and roasted. After roasting, the shell is removed to produce cacao nibs. The cacao nibs are then ground into cocoa mass, which is pure chocolate in rough form. The cocoa mass is usually liquefied then molded with or without other ingredients. At this point in the process, it is called chocolate liquor. The chocolate liquor may then be processed into two components: cocoa solids and cocoa butter.
Research has found that chocolate, when eaten in moderation, can lower blood pressure. So, it IS good for you!!
A few good ways to celebrate are to visit your favorite restaurant and indulge in a delicious chocolate dessert or to host a chocolate tasting party. Invite friends to bring their best chocolate recipes to share. The more friends you invite, the more chocolate to sample and share.

The New York City Subway Opens On October 27, 1904

At 2:35 in the afternoon, October 27, 1904, New York City Mayor George McClellan takes the controls on the inaugural run of the city’s new subway system. At 7 p.m. that evening, the subway opened to the general public, and more than 100,000 people paid a nickel each to take their first ride under Manhattan.
Service expanded to; the Bronx in 1905, Brooklyn in 1908 and Queens in 1915.
Since 1968, the subway has been operated by the Metropolitan Transport Authority (MTA). The system now has 26 lines and 468 stations in operation; the longest line is the 8th Avenue A train, stretching 32 miles from northern Manhattan to southeast Queens.
On a normal day some 4.5 million passengers take the subway in New York, utilizing a system that runs 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
