Remember to always consult with a board certified plastic surgeon. Dear Anita: Thanksgiving was the usual hassle for my wife and me. Our son and his wife insist on having the dinner at their home and won't allow any of our friends to come, so we always eat and run. They don't understand us and we don't want to hurt their feelings, but we don't want to stay and spend a lot of time with my son in-laws. They are cranky and aggravating and complain about everything. Dear Reader: Families are often friends you didn't get to pick. Don't give up. Why don't you have the "bird" at your home next year? Then you could also invite your friends. Anita Finley 's STARS Seniors Taking Active Roles in Society specializes in seniors' concerns. Write to her co The Post, P.O.

B Fort Pierce Jazz Society Jam hosted by j jimmy Van Go and Ossie Wright Jr., 7-10 p.m. Gresser's desire to help the poor is an outgrowth from a World War II incident in which the ship he was on was torpedoed and many of his crewmates were killed. "The boat split in half, taking the lifeboats with it," Geltner explained. "And seven of the 48 died immediate-ly." Gresser stuck with the ship, staying below, to help his fellow seamen, until he got permission to go topside. He scrambled aboard the remaining half of the ship that was afloat and watched helplessly as three more of the crew died. He was moved to help others less fortunate after that devastating experience. "Nine guys help me do it (distribute food,) and we get about 75 meals," he said. "We hear later how much the families enjoyed the meals."

John-John and Carolyn get SUSHI From ID studio executives stand outside, rain or shine, for up to an hour, waiting to be seated and possibly abused by a man they say makes the best sushi in town. The nondescript-looking eatery, located in a Studio City strip-mall, does not take reservations, has no valet parking and lacks any of the other amenities of a trendy restaurant. The clock on the wall runs 30 minutes fast to encourage diners to leave when they finish eating. At the handful of tables, customers are allowed to choose their sushi from the menu, but a seat at the sushi bar, where owner Kazunori Nozawa presides, is where the real action is. While New York's Soup-Nazi grudgingly allows customers to pick their own soup from the menu, there are no such niceties here. When you sit at the sushi bar, Nozawa decides what you are going to eat. Sit down, shut up Here the old adage "The customer is always right" has mutated into "The customer knows nothing." With a piercing look that some might take for total disdain, Nozawa assesses your palette and decides what you are going to eat. "He has a professional eye," his wife Yumiko said. "He knows your tongue and tries to treat your tongue. Some people like tuna with lemon or prawn sauce, but he refuses. If they want to argue with him or pressure him, he kicks them out." At least two or three times a month customers find themselves banished, never again to savor the delights of Nozawa Sushi. In this restaurant, the mandatory "We reserve the right to refuse service to anyone" is not lip service, it is a battle cry. Behind the counter another sign spells out the rules to new customers: "Today's Special Trust Me." And don't nibble on your sushi. It is one piece one bite. This is not negotiable. Nozawa, 52, does not mince his words. "They don't know sushi, American people, so I have to teach American people good style, so trust me," he said. "I have to teach Americans sushi manners. If you don't like it don't come back here. I have the'"' most high standards." Standards are pretty low else- where, according to Nozawa. "In -other sushi bars you can ask for tuna with cucumber. Noooooooo," .. he shouts with a pained expres- .". sion on his face. . "Some customers I just don't need. I don't need them putting things on my fish. I don't care Other sushi bars are McDonalds style and if you want that get out of here. Bye bye, OK? I love money but I don't need that type of cus- -tomer." Better than sex? His speech is delivered at top' volume in front of all his custom- . ers. Indeed they might better be," called his devotees. Many diners approached the sushi bar before leaving to shower' Nozawa with praise for the "expe-... rience" with which he had graced their lives. One suggested it was better than sex. Tim Zagat of restaurant guides,? Zagat Survey said it was the com- bination of good food and an odd- ball chef that made the restaurant;, a winner. "This is one of the highest-rated restaurants in the survey . . . it is fabulously highly rated," Zagat said. "If you have wonderful food and you see the abuse element as a fun thing to come and see it can be amusing. As long as your ex-'r pectations are right it can be a", turn-on." Nozawa said he has been mak- -ing sushi for 34 years and still it is not enough. His quest in life, he said, is to make his rice softer and softer. This is what makes him happy. "Rice, fish, seaweed, wasabi' and soy sauce, that's it. Five kinds and five kinds of best is the best way," he said. "I have the five best, and the technique too." Emmy-winning actress Helen , Hunt, star of the situation comedy: Mad About You, said the "sushi is-simply the best in town." : ! Other famous actors, and char-; acter actors whose names you; never remember no matter how; often you see them, also eat a$ Nozawa Sushi. But they do not gef : any special treatment. ; "We don't know who are the: 2 very famous people. They're aIU- just customers," Nozawa's wife;:' said. 7 i Weight lifting and running shoes are hot items in Conde' Nast Sports for Women. that could run in GH: "It's funny, I have a very psychotic, wild side, but I also love knitting." Tea Leoni. (On second thought, maybe not.) B Jane advertisers you won't find in the women's sports mags: Virginia Slims, Misty Light Slims, Parliament Lights, Kamel Cigarettes, Skyy Vodka. B Old Woman asks: "When my husband and I first met, we made out all the time. Why doesn't he like to make out anymore? Are most guys like this once they're married?" Red-book. New Woman asks: "I have been told that lifting free weights can stunt your growth. Should I continue weigh tlifting?" Sports Illustrated Women Sport. B Jane considers men to be: meat.
