  1. We get M&M’s in the UK and you can get your photo on them. See http://www.mymms.co.uk/.

    Do you know the significance of the colour ‘purple’? When I was young I was taken to my local Church of Scotland and always remember the story about purple. It was the most expensive dye known to the ancient Israelites. The liquid used to create it came from a tiny Mediterranean Sea snail gland. Each snail produced only a single drop of the needed fluid. To produce one pound of dye, during ancient times, took the acquiring of four million mollusks.

    So you had Lydia from Thyatira, a merchant of expensive purple cloth mentioned in Acts 16v14. Shows she was a wealthy woman.

    The English Crown Jewels have purple velvet on them, while the Scottish Crown Jewels have crimson velvet. Normally the colour varied from crimson to velvet.

    The Scottish Crown Jewels were hidden in the mid 17th century to avoid being destroyed as their English crown jewels had been at the hands of Oliver Cromwell. First they were taken to Dunnottar Castle in Aberdeenshire, from where they were smuggled out during a siege and then buried a few miles away in Kinneff parish church for nine years until the restoration of the monarchy in 1660.

    1. These were custom ordered, but the price jumped up at least $150.00 to personalize them….I think I turned into an M&M by the time we finished..

  2. Your 4th of July, I spent my side of the world eating these very things… all day celebrating your day… so if you want you can send a package or two my way…

    1. LOL! You spent the 4th in an extremely productive way!
      You’ve also revealed that your love for chocolate is back 🙂
      We filled 194 boxes with these little beauties..smallish boxes…and a few may have accidentally made it into my mouth….I will have the reception hall make an announcement to the effect that they will accept donations of unwanted boxes. They can say that the boxes will benefit a “Bulldog” in South Africa…you know how people love dogs!
