Ron and Alexandra Seigel hi Alexandra... I know what you mean... I often pass on something that sounds great just because I don't want to travel. But if you could just materialize... that would be one heck of a trick!

Lawrence "Larry" & Sheila Agranoff. Cell: 631-805-4400 hi Sheila... I'm with you on that... when I eat out I often first check the dessert menu and work backwards from there in terms of what I choose to eat.
