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

2. Do you wear perfume? Favorite?

3. Bagels-cream cheese or butter?

Today was veggie cream cheese one side, butter the other. </span></strong></p>

That's interesting!  My dad used to make mean salami and butter sandwiches which were out of this world...  I never heard of cream cheese and butter at the same time.

My guess is that the water in those locations come from different places, thus if it "was the water" that made a difference then they would be different tasting in all of those places.

Well you don't eat them together like you would a bagel you got from the bagel store. I slice it and eat each side separately. Coldcuts on bagels are yummy too. Can't have that too much either though.

Bagels, pizza and large pretzels are all part of that NY experience I absolutely adore there.  To hear someone disagree with that is just insane, Lol.

Hard water vs. soft water elsewhere.

I'm pretty sure that NYC and LI get their water from different places, fyi.  

When was the last time you had a NY style bagel from a shop that was outside of NY?  Not a bakery, not a chain place but a true NY style bagel place.

There are a lot of bagel shops in upstate.  They're alright, over-rated is what natives say though..  Not  the NYC experience!

Yeah, you can't go to a chain either. Private places are the best.
