"Quirks" is such a sweet way to say it! My first impression was that the town seems to be an urban planner's nightmare!

I'm very impressed by your weight loss. What dedication and change of lifestyle that must have taken!

I have been a vegetarian for a long time and still weigh the same as I did when a Junior in high school...and probably am more active since I was a bit on the nerdy side back then and preferred the company of my radios and electronic projects to outdoor activities.
