An American Odyssey (Part 10)

3 Sivan 5772 – May 23, 2012
San Francisco is a lovely city and we enjoyed its many tourist venues. The famous Lombard Street, known as “The Crookedest Street in the World,” was beautiful, with its floral decorations. We shopped at Pier 39, and we bought matching San Francisco jackets. We really needed them since it was cold in San Francisco.

Uproar: Post Traumatic Embitterment Disorder?

13 Tishri 5770 – September 30, 2009
In a paper greeted enthusiastically at the May conference of the American Psychiatric Association, in San Francisco, a new name was given to a common problem, Post Traumatic Embitterment Disorder.
