    Benjamin-- I am helping my sister plan her wedding; she lives in the Denver area, and I suddenly thought of something today.

    Aspen, CO hosts a huge food and wine festival every year, called the Food and Wine Classic. It is hosted by Food and Wine Magazine. It is one of the biggest food events each yr for people in the food and restaurant industry, as well as regular foodies. Many famous chefs speak and hold seminars at the three day event.

    Do you ever remember going to this, and if so, do you remember any of the speakers you saw there? Also, do you like to cook yourself, and do you have any specialty dishes (other than the oatmeal LOL)

    Belated Happy Birthday.
    It's nice to see you here. While I haven't been here in months, I've thought of you often. I hope this is the year that you figure it out.
    I love your sense of humor.
    Hang in there.

    There was a question about the surgical pin having numbers before. Was this ever addressed?

    May I chime in?
    I also wondered about numbers - forget it.
    I was told that usually the package is numbered, not necessarily the pins.
    From what I've found out from 2 of my Drs, he'd end up disfigured; and it would probably be for nothing.

    Back in the early 70's we had a really bad flood in Watchung, NJ. My dad's gas station was underwater. There is a car dealer down the street, the flood was so bad, it carried cars away from the dealers lot.

    We had a store called Grants.

    I wasn't exposed to a lot of foods growing up; and as an adult, would not try a lot of the stuff you listed.

    Take spaghetti sauce; I'm not Italian, it wasn't something we ate a lot of, not one of my favorite tastes as an adult. Also the cheeses that go into Italian. I can't be around Parmesan.

    My parents came here in the 50's from Hungary.
    I've wondered if Ben's parents were similar, where they came to the US from another country.

    I myself do not expect Ben to answer everything.
    I understand that some may be uncomfortable; or time consuming.
    Perhaps even reading some and speaking to NB while he is reading may jog something that he can privately share with her; then she can follow up on it.

    You sound like us. The hotter the food the better.
    My son loves Franks Hot Sauce on everything.
    Jalapenos used to be me until my taste buds changed.

    I grew up with Hungarian peppers. They are a yellow pepper, have a really nice, sweet, but hottish taste. My dad used to make scrambled eggs on Sunday mornings. He'd fry up bacon, then used to take bread and fry the bread in the bacon grease, then add garlic powder (or garlic salt) to the fried bread. He'd then fry up the onions & peppers, add the eggs. He'd also add bacon pieces.

    My dad had a habit of dipping everything in salt. He'd have a pile of salt on his plate, dip his bread and whatever else in the salt.

    Your taste buds remind me of him.

    We didn't do grits, Farina was what we ate up here.

    Curious, ever has an Italian hot dog? There's a family owned chain here in NJ called Jimmy Buffs. They take hot dogs, potato wedges, onion & sausage & fry it all up in the same grease. They'd then put it on a round flat bread. The Jimmy Buff's dogs are pretty huge & very greasy.

    Best photos I could find here - and here - this is how they cook them Big Frier

    Benjaman:
    Would you allow one person at WS, perhaps believe09, to read over your
    medical records? Or at least your first few days after being found?

    Do you have a copy of the original police report, if there was one?
    If so, would you allow believe09 or someone at WS to read it over?

    If not, were you ever able to interview the policemen who responded to the 911 call that day?
    Thanks.

    I notice some pics from the Enquirer that you were wearing a baseball cap. Do you wear baseball caps often?

    That was my question when I finally got the article and posted the picture.
    I wondered if he wore the cap plus the flannel shirts & jeans.

    He takes on a different look with the different clothes.

    I usually wear BB caps. How did you find the article? I have been trying to find a digital copy of it but have had no luck.

    Someone here (Gina I think) scanned it and sent me a copy. I have it in the album I made for you. Here's the link Ben's album
    It's all of the pics I've collected of you.

    Also, if you look to the right in the album you will see the blog link. 2004 Amnesia Victim blog
    I need to go back over everything but don't have a lot of time right now.
    If you want to email me roselvr@gmail.com I can send you the full sized article

    Nice to see you posting.

    Memorial wants 800+dollars for the medical records.
    No police report was made. The officers who were at the scene are no longer with the RH police. Or,at least,that is what we were told.

    I thought Dr Phil paid for them?

    Maybe we all should go to the Dr Phil site and request a follow up show?

    Never been there. That festival is not about food.It is snobs trying to outsnob each other. It is more about being pretty and looking pretty than anything else.

    X-rays have been taken. Nothing was learned. Someone suggested I have the Pin removed. NO NO I will not allow that.
    I use very little salt.But I have started eating Habanero Chiles (Peppers).
    W.T.Grants went into bankruptcy in the seventies(I think). They tried to compete with K-Mart.
