1. Are you wearing purple for North America Lupus Awareness Day today?

2. Do you wear perfume? Favorite?

3. Bagels-cream cheese or butter?

Meh. The Washington Post publishes an annual list of the best places to get crab in the area. Generally speaking their pick for Number 1 is good, but it's not the best, imo.

Next time I head back over the Atlantic, it'll have to be England. Mootoad would never forgive me if I hit up Europe and didn't come see her :)  And Germany. And John and the DIL and whatever grandkids there may be, too. John wants to see where we lived.

No, you assume incorrectly.  I saw the two links (really one link as it was the same article posted in two different places), but thats not a logical claim to make.  A lot of places claim to be the "best" whatever, lol.

Maybe because they are. It is not just something I made up Laughing

Of course Spring's claims aren't logical. This whole conversation has gotten silly. It's perfectly okay to claim that it's easier to get a good bagel in NYC than in almost any other place; just like its easier o get lobster in Maine or crab cakes in Baltimore or Cajun food in New Orleans. But to claim that one can ONLY get good X in Y place? Not logical, prima facie.

I agree that it's not logical to claim they are only good in single region.

Then you must have missed the 2 links I put up showing where the best bagels in the nation were. Not all were in NY but NY was still the top winner.

I don't care whether Soring had been to my area of the country. She's been places I haven't been; I've been places she's never been. It's a big freaking planet. It's just not logical to believe that some NYC bagels are better than others, but ALL of them have some intangible commonality that makes all if them more different from all bagels produced elsewhere than they are different from each other.

I was calling her on her point, that one has to live in NYC or have been there to get their fill of certain foods in order to claim superiority of the same foods in other parts of the country.  Going with her logic (what little there was), then she would have had to been to my area to judge that they weren't the same thing.  I agree that it's not logical to claim they are only good in single region.
