Thinking About Mexico

While most people are thinking about Christmas and New Year’s I’m not. Not that there is anything wrong with that. Being Jewish, Christmas is not such a big thing for me and going out on New Year’s is nuts in my opinion. My father used to call it “amateur night” and it was the one night a year he didn’t drink much.

Since retirement, this is the time of year we usually escape the cold. This year we are planning three weeks in Mexico. This is me in January and I can’t wait.

Happy Hanukkah!

Tonight begins the “Festival of the Lights”. Christians mistakenly refer to it as the Jewish Christmas but it is actually not an extremely important holiday in Judaism. Hanukkah is a Jewish holiday commemorating the re dedication of the Holy Temple in Jerusalem at the time of the Maccabean Revolt and the capture of Jerusalem by the Hebrews.

Here is wishing all have a wonderful Holiday Season regardless of faith!

Global Warming Cactus

We have had this Cactus for at least ten years. It use to bloom every December like clockwork. You know when it use to snow in December. Last few years it began to bloom around Thanksgiving. This year is the first year in bloomed in October. I figure if global warming continues it will soon be a Memorial Day Cactus.

Studies In Glass Brick #3–Christmas Cactus

When we moved off the mountain last year we had to leave our Christmas Cactus behind. So we had to acquire a new one which rewarded us with a single but beautiful bloom.
