Welcoming 2018

I try to keep my blog free of politics and full of pictures and personal observations. Last year I allowed myself to rant a little about the previous year with my New Years post. I was truly upset about fascism in The United States and still am. However I realized talk is cheap and contrary to the mission I set for this blog. I have over 2000 followers and they don’t visit to listen to me rant.

So this year I just offer you this amazingly sweet and delicious torte and wish you the best for a Healthy and Happy 2018! This was waiting for us in our hotel In Milan Italy when we arrived in 2009.

Happy New Year


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.
