The Best Motto

Gd, grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannon change
Courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.

All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.

You woke up this morning - Congratulations! You got another chance!

Happy Passover to all the Jews! Enjoy the Matza!

Nice Holiday Highlights for me: was forced to actually clean my apartment; insisted on my usual (after my seminary days) eight glasses of dry, red wine; as a result, got drunk and tried to refill my hostesses glass without uncorking the bottle; very much enjoyed listening to my kooky friend singing Shvach Hamasho on his balcony to the tune of "Silent Night"; got a very serious and solemn compliment on my new springy skirt from a six-year old; looked at the pictures of my niece and nephew every other hour (since the models very enjoying themselves in Maryland); got stuffed with delicious food (repeatedly); listened to my co-worker's stupid comments (repeatedly), trying to explain to them that no, we do not fast the whole day and eat at night, since we are not muslims and Ramadan is finished for this year.

On the slightly more serious note: in case I did not mention it before, I have gone to seminary to actually learn (that's is probably why I enjoyed it so much), so, I still remember some stuff, even though it has been seventeen years. One of the things I always remember very clearly is one of the connections between Passover, Shavuot and Succot: first we were selected for a mission, then we were given the tools to accomplish it, and finally, we report on the accomplishment. Actually, a profound way to look at the Passover: re-experiencing, once again, not only the freedom from slavery, but remembering all the reasons we were freed.


PS I realize that , due to unforeseen (or foreseen) circumstances, by the time this piece goes "to print", Passover will be over; the sentiment, however, remains.

This morning, even after I have opened my Net and saw the disgusting green discoloration of the MSN page, it took me a little while to figure out that today is Earth's day. Now, since I have caught on, I can not pass this opportunity to offer my most profound and sincerest thanks to all the "green" people for the following:

The California wildfires, which are the direct result of tree huggers' activity.

The New Orleans levies, the repair of which the above mentioned tree huggers prevented, since it would have disrupted the local wildlife.

People suffering from malaria because DDT is outlawed.

The skyrocketing food prices, which resulted from the vigorous and unnecessary production of bio fuel.

Our continued dependence on OPEC, since we are prevented from using our own natural resources.

Putting the lives and well-being of human beings on the same, if not lower, level with animals.

Last, and most important, making me hate one of my favorite colors, which in my mind now and forever more is equated with your fascist's dictates.

For this, and many, many more wonderful deeds, thank you, environmentalists! Happy Earth Day!

To my loyal readers (all four of you): it is a well-known fact that I am not exactly the most computer savvy person there is. Youtube sensed it almost immediately, and, for whatever reason, it takes about 48 hours for the Youtube files to appear on my blog. Meanwhile, I usually start another entry, which I do not necessarily finish right away, so, when it finally appears, it may appear under the Youtube file. Basically, if you feel like reading my ravings, feel free to periodically check the under the music.

Thanks for reading!
