Going Radio Silent…

I feel I have the best of doctor and I'm looking forward to being able to use my arm fully...
surgery

There must have been a time in the past 6+ years where I didn’t post for a week, two, possibly more…there must have been, though at this moment, I can’t remember it. I barely slept last night – less than 2 hours. The important thing, of course, is that the surgeon slept! I had three projects to finish and send to clients; a bunch of sessions to finish related to our training courses, emails to send…so much on my mind. Amira and Haim invited us for dinner; Shmulik and Naama called and said they wanted to come over to see me for a few minutes. Dinner was amazing; everything wonderful. Elie called and ended up offering to take me to the hospital – Lazer and Amira are going, so that’s covered. Davidi went to school yesterday but will come to the hospital later this afternoon, hopefully when I’m awake and aware. I won’t tell him he took the wrong suitcase and sent me scrambling to find something else… So – in a few hours, I’ll have surgery. I expect to be off line at least a week; Lauren tells me to prepare for three. May you all be blessed with a Shana tova – a good year; a shana metukah – a sweet year. May it be a year of blessings, of safety, of health. May it be a year of peace – for all of Israel and the world. May the peace come across our borders and within our borders. I don’t know if I’ll have someone posting – I guess the main thing to say is that I feel I have the best of doctor and I’m looking forward to being able to use my arm fully… eventually. One of them…I think it was Amira…tells me I should ask the doctor if after the surgery, I’ll be able to really pitch … and then tell him I never could so it would be really nice if I got that talent. So – here’s a prayer for you and for me – may this next year come in with all the blessings, all the goodness…all the dreams we keep inside ourselves. And may we each be inscribed in the book of life for a good year, a sweet, sweet year.

In Islam, there is no such thing as peace with accursed dhimmis as the Muslims refer to us infidels.

A reader claimed the Disengagement from Gaza was good, because it reduced the number of murdered Israelis. Examining the numbers tells a different story…

JoeSettler points out that most Gazans want to leave, and most Jews want to go back home to Gush Katif. How about a solution that actually resolves the conflict?

These are the photos of our soldiers (and a citizen) killed in action during the current IDF ground operation in Gaza.

IDF volunteers come to Israel just to serve are the true idealists; Sean Carmeli was one of them.

And he whispers one last time, I love you mother.

It’s absurd, in this war places like Ariel and Shiloh are among the safest in the State of Israel.

Why aren’t American Jews coming s to Israel for the summer; Are they scared because of the war?

I love that most of my kids don’t actually read this blog – it gives me a freedom.

My son continues to move slowly towards the army while working to complete his final year in high school.

It’s a strange feeling to known that a missile is flying towards your country and there is nothing you can do about it.

I’ll start by explaining that in Israel, a common phrase is “yehiye b’seder” – it will be okay.

At one point the Dr. asked me if I was famous because of the blog…

There are ashes that remain in the ovens, ashes piled into a mountain in Maidanek.
