as i said, that comment was for dana and it was a joke. Not trying to
insult you or get your goat so to speak.
I agree about the old neighborhood...never thought i'd see the day
when can you get an amusing chardonnay and grilled white fish on Ave A
most things i say are not an attack- i come off wrong sometimes, and i
apologise. Gem Spa is on St Mark's and Second, i think...
love to you, and don't mind me.  I will eventually learn to keep quiet...
