Thousand Columns

The Thousand Columns of Chichen Itza isn’t because there are exactly thousand columns but merely a large number of columns that supported the roof of what is believed to be the ancient market place. The roof may have been made of mortar, wood or thatch. It is believed that these were great meeting halls adjacent to the market.

Jungle Temple

In addition to the famous temple “El Castillo”, there are over 50 others at Chichen Itsa. Some were actually private for the upper classes only. You can almost see Indiana Jones running away from this one carrying an ancient artifact.

Ho! Ho! Ho!

It can be tough being a Jew around Christmas time unless you have a Christmas Family. I was fortunate growing up and we always had a family that we hung out with at Christmas. We would get a couple of gifts, and give some, share in the meal and have some time with a brightly lit Christmas tree. However, it is well known that if you don’t have a Christmas family then you can do two things on Christmas if you are Jewish.

1) Attend the massive Jewish meeting to discuss how we will control the media for yet another year.
2) Go to a movie and eat Chinese food.

It used to be when I was a kid everything was closed on Christmas, even gas stations. Last year we decided to up the ante and instill a new tradition by going gambling and eating in a signature restaurant so we went to Atlantic City to revel in the new Revel Resort.

This year we are headed south to spend the Christmas with friends in Virginia and New Years with friends in Tampa. On January 1st we check in to our beach cottage in Clearwater Beach and will be posting from the beach! Whatever you do have a safe and happy holiday season and a Merry Christmas to all and to all Good Night.
