I watched this http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-africa-17339798
It was very challenging and inspiring to watch. I thought I would share it with you.
The story of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a myth, a story. A wonderful one at that. But it is such a shame and tragedy that chocolate factories like that don’t exist for children in West Africa farming the cocoa.
Perhaps the factories that make the cocoa into our lush choco bars are more dreamy and magical than the cocoa plantations where the cocoa is sourced from.
So behind the wrapper of a Mars Bar or Thorton’s treat may be an enticing advertisement, magical shop front or temptation of the taste buds but underneath it all, there is a child working in the Ivory Coast much like a slave, perhaps being paid with food, or a small tip but with no way out unless we choose Fair Trade!
STOP the TRAFFIK
Fair Trade a brighter future for everyone
Loved the vocals on this! Great blues/rock guitar rhythm. Great lyrics on some tracks “fool for your lovin” to name one.
Robert Cray Band
This is just a great record, I love his style and guitar playing. good songs on this record. Not my favourite Cray record, but its still good.
I am actually not so keen on this record, none of the songs really grab me. I really dislike the artwork. I think it is just a matter of taste and preference. Im probably biased as I am not much of a Maiden fan. I can see the appeal though, lots of progressive rock riffs, screaming vocals.
