I finally caught up on this thread. I cannot believe some of you are saying Texas barbecue is the best.

Well, to each his own, but I was raised on the stuff, having been born in Texas and raised there till I was almost 15, and I prefer the North Carolina-style pork barbecue.

Although I must admit it's been yeeeeears since I've had it ... Maybe that beef brisket with dark sauce would tickle my palate now.

Dude, it never ends.  Almost does not matter what you earn.

It seems that the more you earn, the more you need, just to stay afloat.

You kids! When I got my first 'real' job when I graduated high shchool I got a State civil service job which, at that time, was not covered by the Federal minimum wage law (the Fed MW was $1.25). Kansas minimum wage was $.85, but I was making a princely $1.11/hr when I started, When I went full time a few months later, I got raised to $254.00/month and I thought I was rich.

Of course, I paid $50.00/mo rent, beer was 10 cents a glass or a quarter for a longneck and you could buy 13 'siver dollar size' hamburgers for a dollar!

Those were the days!
As a kid, I worked for my dad at his garage, working on cars.  I would earn about $10-$20 a week, depending on business. 
Of coarse, I was around 12 years old, so I wasn't spending much, except for junk food...  ;D

You should see the pay grade table my dad had in 1968-69 as an O-1 and O-2. ;D

And all that bought was some crappy pizza at the mess hall.  (Did he say Mess?)

Didn't know any O table guys in those days, but I knew a lot of E-1s and E-2s and I know!

Oh I don't remember. The ones all the natives say are the best. Expensive is over twenty bucks for one friggen pizza.
Artichoke's in New York is pretty good, but I'm partial to NYC pizza anyway. I ate pizza when I lived near Chicago and wasn't terribly impressed, though I didn't try it all.
Imos, a St. Louis area chain. love the thin, cracker-style crust and tangy sauce. Their toasted ravioli is awesome too  :eats:
