Lucille is a wonderful FRENCH TEACHER that over the years became my friend.
Of course being FRENCH means that you like chocolate...but only the native really can appreciate the real genuine homemade FRENCH CHOCOLATE...this is what you call
THE FRENCH CONNECTION...the one that had been borned into that culture...
