  It’s on its way. The weekend that never has enough Sundays. There is so much you want to accomplish on any given Sunday, or in the reverse, so much relaxing you want to catch up on. Yet on this particular Sunday that’s not happening!  Because that, all important, event takes precedence.   You need…

  Have you ever been that person on the plane? You know, the one uncomfortably squished next to someone you didn’t know. Have you ever walked into an elevator followed by one other person and then had the door shut. And suddenly it was just you and a stranger. Awkward silence? Yes – these are…

So what makes it a holiday? Every single week you’re cooking a chicken. So now you’re cooking a bigger chicken?! Maybe it seems different because you leave out the kugel and replace it with a pumpkin pie? Or maybe it’s just nice to be together with family during the week in a nice formal way?…

Did you ever really understand the saying, “One man’s meat is another man’s poison”? Well, this week I think it really came to light in stereo. Actually maybe even in surround sound.

  Recipes are the hottest thing!   I grew up flavoring by “feel”.  In other words, if You felt like pouring something in, you did!  Really -my mother has this gift for flavoring things and I just copied that. Which I think she got from her mom. My sister, in fact, once tried to watch…

  I’m looking to buy a magic flying carpet. Anyone have one for sale?   I’m glad to be a part of someone’s celebration. We pray for it. We want good things to happen to others. We want to be there. But we really don’t enjoy the Schlepping!   People think – “I’m looking for…

The bitter sweet joy of a wedding. Some may say, for the parents making the wedding it’s a bittersweet event-having a child move out, verses gaining another child. I say there are much more immediate pulling forces at play. Admittedly, they are more superficial forces, but, many are bittersweet for the person making the simcha,…

Vacation homes! Did that just have a visceral effect on you? If so, then you are probably the proud owner of one! And know exactly what I’m talking about? Yet to make it perfectly clear, I’m going to simply say, oxymoron. This is defined as when two contradictory terms appear in conjunction with one another.…
