thanks gg and harry.

we can get pre-made refrigerated sushi here in supermarkets and small takeouts, but boy, $6 to $8 is a really good price, gg.

harry, i got this made fresh while i waited, so it's a bit more. the sushi/sashimi combo with salad was $27 usd, and that was from a fairly inexpensive place. most other sushi joints would have charged $30 to $35.

Harry, remember that BT is in New York City, so it will cost more than average. Here in SE Virginia, we can get sushi in grocery stores or from a Japanese restaurant. A box of sushi or sashimi might cost USD$6-8 each, depending on the kind of fish it contains.
i DO need to move................

hmmmmm,'bout the same price as over here.a pack of mixed sashimi/sushi.enough for say a light lunch is about 4-5 from my local tesco a mixed box or maki box from yo!sushi is about 7-8.
yesterday my son,ben,and i went into manchester for lunch & the movies.ate in wagamama & shared duck gyoza,yakitori chicken,chilli squid & had a bowl of seafood ramen each.washed down with a large iced peach tea each the bill came to 42.so,again,similar prices.
bad news is that on the way home the brake pad wear warning light came on in the car.fast car,big brakes,that's gonna hurt!....think i'll be eating so so never mind sushi 'til next payday!

aww, c'mon. brakepads are easy. one of the few things a regular guy can still maintain on his car without a computer and special software, cable, and connector.

tonight is takeout indian. tikka masala over rice, spinach, and chick peas, with spiced onions and teeny hot oeppers that were grown by inmates in a prison in guatemala.

want pictures, harry? this was only $9 usd including the buck tip for the kid who gets skunked by all of the cab drivers that come in all day long and treat him like a chai-wallah, and he loads me up for a buck and a normal modicum of respect.

pictures would be good bucky,what is he? the invisible punka-wallah!
right about the brakes bt,two problemo's:left my tools over at bolas's so that he could fix the lawn mower and,last time she was in for a service(the car that is!) stan said when the pads come up for a change the discs will need replacing too so i'd need a hub puller & electronics to balance the braking.gonna cost about 200 of your us dollars....per corner....doh!

that sucks. don't let them talk you into just grinding and polishing the rotors (discs). it never works for long.

correct bt and that was the problem.they are the original discs & they were worn so thin there wasn't anything left to grind.i've been going to stan & alan for years.honest guy's who live locally & always try to fix before having to replace.old school.i like that,plus i've just collected my car.....i bumped them cash & did a deal on a property they want to rent out,so they cut me a handsome discount.like i said bucky,old school!
now where's that picture from your last reply,the one with chai-wallah's & skunks,or did i misunderstand what you wrote?
