The 29-year-old advertising copywriter also had to have the Armani eyeglasses, the Cartier watch and the Lichtenstein print.His friends say he brags about his designer purchases.

Ruth LaMonte from Baltimore was looking for recipe for a pork curry dish that she said appeared in the Sun magazine more than 30 years ago. It was made with pork cubes, pineapple, raisins, and she is not sure what else. She said it was very tasty and everyone who had it at her home has always wanted her to make it again. Unfortunately, she lost the recipe and could not recreate it from memory. Traci Swindel from Santa Rosa, Calif., sent in her recipe for a crockpot version of pork and pineapple curry.
