2. Do you wear perfume? Favorite?

3. Bagels-cream cheese or butter?

I grew up in Cincinnati where skyline chili is king! I hate the stuff and that's probably b/c I grew up with home made chili my mom made, beans and all. You'd probably like skyline in a can if you like chili coneys.

<<Good luck as I am sure they are good but not the same Wink If you want to get some REAL NY bagels, let me know and I can get you a number to call and order. They are expensive to ship but worth it>>>

No luck needed, they are the same, I've had both with an open mind each time no less!    :)  lololol  :)

Funny thing is the pretzels in the stadiums are sometimes the same ones they sell in the stores. They are bigger and better thought then the frozen boxed ones.

What's "slaw"? In MI they use ground meat ground up very finely and then add mustard & onions.  My parents claim they use a special hot dog too, lol.  My dad gets them brought up frozen whenever the relatives visit.  I haven't found a place that has the same kind, but I haven't traveled everywhere.  : )

Well they can't because for one they didn't have the homemade ones I had 20 years ago that were so good.  And for 2 it would be narrow minded to think that no other places had bagels as good if one hasn't tried them at all.
