Have you heard of Ginkgo? It is a miracle herb doctors don't want you to know about, that stimulates blood circulation through the brain and extremities and aids memory and concentration. Just started on it this week and it has made a world of difference in me and I am sure it will do the same for you. It is Nature's Way Premium extract and comes in a purple hue bottle. It was just announced on TV that it is no good. Don't believe them. The doctors keep it a secret because they make so much money on the medications they prescribe. It is a disgrace! You be the judge and get back to me. Another thing, Chelaton supposedly unclogs your arteries to make many heart surgeries unnecessary. Check and double check with your doctors for alternative methods of medications and therapy before agreeing to radical surgery. It is

very greedy world out there.

We can see this in the economic crisis and the handout requested from the auto CEOs. Michael Moore has the best sense ever to handle their bail out. He says, "Put in new management, take over the company and put workers to work building city infrastructure and hybrid cars." Let the government share in the profits. Doesn't this make sense to you? Email me.

My apologies for not getting back to some of my readers that have emailed me. My computer crashed a few weeks ago and I lost the data. Please resend your emails.

Peking Park Restaurant on Park Avenue was the site of the International Chinese Culinary Competition where I savored the sweet and sour Asian delights. It is so different from American cuisine. My taste buds jumped with joy with every bite. The Huaiyang Cuisine won the top awards. They place a great deal on the way material is cut, the food preparation and presentation. My interviews and videotaping will be seen on TV and the Internet eventually. I was just fascinated by the way Asians cut veggies with such speed and accuracy.

At the Hilton Hotel the Tech Expo took over. Companies from all over the USA gave seminars and demonstrations of how ads appear on the website on the Internet; what was most appealing and what brought in the most money. Even small businesses can make money on the Internet. It was an exciting show.

Essextec is an IBM solution provider focused on helping you radically improve business performance. They provide visualization, back-up and recovery, business continuity architecture and design, among other features. I learned this over a beautiful filet mignon lunch at Smith and Wollensky's, 49 Street and Third Avenue.

I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving. Special thanks to all my friends and coworkers at The Wave: Leon Locke, former publisher, emeritus, who asked me to write for The Wave some forty or fifty years ago and whom I warmly remember and respect to this day; his wife, Susan Locke, present publisher; General Manager Sandy Bernstein; Managing Editor Howard Schwach and all the staff. The Wave is the third oldest newspaper in NYC outside of the Times and the Post and enjoys a high reputation throughout Manhattan as well as the Rockaways and Long Island. I wish to thank all my family and friends and, of course, my faithful readers. May we all be thankful for the blessings God has given us and look ahead with hope for a bountiful future where we can gobble, gobble, gobble to our heart's content. Thank you, God, for another day for which I can say, "Thank You!"

TRAVEL: Agents gathered at Churrascania (Platforma) Restaurant at 221 West Broadway to learn of the attributes of Brazil, one of the best vacation spots of the world; glorious beaches and beautiful mountain views and special air and land packages. Years ago, I did an on locations show on Brazil and it is magnificent. A must see.
