Sep 17th 2012 11:42AM If I'm looking for a pricy, splurge meal, I'll ask the concierge, or if it is late at night and I want to be safe. Otherwise I usually will ask a shop-owner, or a cabbie for the good, out-of the tourist type restaurants. One of the best, cheapest meals I had in England was a lunch at a basement pub reccommended by a Tower guard. And the hands-down best cheap meal in all my travelling was a great lunch in New Orleans at a cinder-block restaurant/bar where everybody else eating were postal workers, construction workers, and cabbies. No tourists, cheap beer and wonderful jambalaya!!

At 5'10" and 125 lbs. naturally at 15, I didn't have to diet rigorously or smoke or use meds to keep the weight. At that time, there was SOME protection of younger models, your agency didn't send you on semi-nude or lingerie shots.
I knew I was a "walking clothes hanger" and didn't view it as a career, just as a way to earn for college. When I had enough to attend college, and I could no longer keep the weight without serious dieting and meds, I quit without a backward glance. BTW, I would be at least 15lbs "overweight" by today's standards.
Aug 16th 2010 11:47AM I have had my pit since he was six months old (from a shelter). I like them because they are low-shedding, non-oily coated (unlike retrievers, whose oily coat can stain furniture) and very intelligent. Also, because they have not been bred to a physical show standard, they have fewer genetic problems than purebred breeds. He's fifteen, and still healthy and sweet.
