I was fortunate enough to get invited to this chic bar opening in Toronto last night by a new friend of mine who's a silent partner in the place.  His fiance is friends with the The Eagles of Death Metal, and they flew up from Hollywood just to play at the opening night party.  This was by far the coolest event I've ever attended.  Since this is a PG site, I can't even begin to describe it.

This is a remarkable book on slavery...a selection of interviews of former slaves compiled during the 1930s, before the last of the former slaves died off. Before freedom, when I just can ... - Google Books

As one who has also been battling the pendulum of weight loss then added gain for many years, I wish you well and success with it.
I have nearly 4,000 feedback responses at 100% positive, snipe every auction I can, and I'm in complete agreement with ericj. Bidding on an auction is a competition ... not only the obvious competition between bidders, but also between the bidders and the seller. The seller gets to set most of the rules ... buy it now fixed price ... starting bid ... minimum price accepted ... length of auction ... shipping charges, etc. ... all decided upon by the seller to maximize...
Tyll leaving Headroom !!! Does this mean my genuine Tyll Action Figure has increased in value?
