CLARA PELLER - Where's the beef? HAHAHA - one of the ONLY things I remember from American History. Thanks for the reminder - who would teach something like that in a history class anyway? Want to know the other thing? Chuck Barry did the duck walk while trying to get the wrinkles out of his pants that the cleaners didn't get right - and it just caught on. I PromiSe it was a history class.

Oh, leg warmers. ponytails on one side of your head. Tight-rolling your jeans. Tying a button-up shirt in the front at the belly button. *singing* We didn't start the fire....
