As a lifelong resident of New Jersey, I find it sacrilegious that pizza is being used as a metaphor in this manner...

It seems like we could be at a decent starting point for a discussion of the pros and cons of said, um, food item (I'm scared of MQ).

*smiling*
"East Coast" pizza is the pizza to which I refer Mighty One!
Is there any better in the world? (the Midwesterner says)

Anyway...forgive me...Pizza should never be sacrileged...

I am not responsible for succeeding with my invitation, and getting you to follow through and taste it, much less like it.

It is a fine line, though.
Remember when your pizza maker said

Matthew 12:30 New King James Version (NKJV)

30 He who is not with Me (my pizza)is against Me (my pizza), and he who does not gather (and eat my pizza)with Me scatters abroad (will not get my pizza).

what if that pizza was made exactly like clac said? the pizza is open to all and all can eat pizza? and the toppings table is open to all.

what if Mathew was talking about "not letting people eat other types of pizza" is not of me?

Anyway, again, I'm rambling...this is way too long.
But, that is my story...as best I can relay in print.
Again, yes, you are so much like me.
Enthusiastic. I am older I'm sure, and am more jaded.
I actually DID go to my City's thread and tell everybody about some new pizza joint I found...
basically jumping up and down..then,
changed it to 2 other places, ha....but the last one IS the best in Town. (phet...Navaho Hogan, but stay away cuz you're losing weight.)

Tell a person once, I say, then, forgetaboutit. Just be consistently happy and deal with your
problems like a saint and if they ever wanna know what's up they can ask you.

Here on CD, there are some false things that people believe or just say...and i just have to correct
them so it seems I blab a lot about my exp.

But I watch my sister (who I am a caregiver of now for the last year, oh joy, see, jaded...) be just tortured..
I sympathize, but she does NOT want any advice of any kind.
So I just go on living my bouncing, happy life...there's nothing to do...Up to the Pizza Chef....
no one 'did it for me' except the Pizza Chef, Himself.
Ah, the freedom, give Him the burden...it's all His doing anyway.

OMG...Navajo Hogan...that's a rowdy bar! Gasp!

(The place does have an interesting history, though).
