I get a kick over my map on my profile page that logs visitors. I've gotten some interesting places, Such as France, various places in the UK, one visit from Ireland. Five visits from Russia. Then places got more exotic. I've had two visits from India, several places from Australia, one from New Zealand. Finally today from a place I had to look up. The country is République de Mauritius. It's 900 kilometres from Madagascar, making that off the coast of the African continent in the southwest Indian Ocean, I have no idea who it was, but it made me realize the LJ is in quite a few more places then I thought.

Speaking of the world. I love roads to heaven (bridges) Here are a few of them...


overdue fine 3 days, $30.00 (rant)

In all the time I've used our public library, i have never been one day late. Ever. Except for today. I borrowed 4 DVDs. They were actually a set, a Miss Marple DVD set from the TV shows. Except the library broke up the set and lent it to me as 4 individual items. They were 3 days late. I had forgotten to renew them. The fine was $30.00. When I protested, and said it was part of a set, they said I would still have to pay the full amount. I gave them all the money I had on me. $15.00. I still fuming when I got home. I had taken some money out because tomorrow was our annual crafts festival. I usually buy birthday gifts there. Now I won't be going. We've been having furloughs at work, so while I still have a job, I'm bringing home less money. It's been 3 years since I had a raise.

I'm just so angry at the public library for doing that. 3 days late $30.00.

icon problems

I'm having trouble uploading my icons. They don't seem to show. It started a few days ago. Stopped for a while. Also some of the ones already uploaded earlier are not showing. Today I have the problem reappear. Very weird. I can load them up on other sites, but not here. Anyone have that problem?

I'm in Maryland, a pretty state. It's nickname is America in Miniature because we have mountains and lakes to the west and beaches to the east.

In Baltimore, I would recommend the National Aquarium, a better then average aquarium.

The Two-Minute Haggadah

Because there is a full moon out tonight, it's time for......

A Freilach & Zisen Pesach

In case you want to 'read ahead' for Pesach ....

  The Two-Minute Haggadah

  A Passover service for the impatient.
  By Michael Rubiner

  Opening prayers:
  Thanks, G-d, for creating wine. (Drink wine.)
  Thanks for creating produce. (Eat parsley.)

  Once we were slaves in Egypt.  Now we're free.  That's why we're
  doing this.

  Four questions:
  1. What's up with the matzoh?
  2. What's the deal with horseradish?
  3. What's with the dipping of the herbs?
  4. What's this whole slouching at the table business?

  1. When we left Egypt, we were in a hurry. There was no time for
      making decent bread.
  2. Life was bitter, like horseradish.
  3. It's called symbolism.
  4. Free people get to slouch.

  A funny story:
  Once, these five rabbis talked all night, then it was
  morning. (Heat soup now.)

  The four kinds of children and how to deal with them:
  Wise child-explain Passover.
  Simple child-explain Passover slowly.
  Silent child-explain Passover loudly.
  Wicked child-browbeat in front of the relatives.

  Speaking of children:
  We hid some matzoh. Whoever finds it gets five bucks.

  The story of Passover:
  It's a long time ago. We're slaves in Egypt.  Pharaoh is a
  nightmare.  We cry out for help.  G-d brings plagues upon the
  Egyptians.   We escape, bake some matzoh.   G-d parts the Red
  Sea.   We make it through; the Egyptians aren't so lucky.
  We wander 40 years in the desert, eat manna, get the Torah,
  wind up in Israel, get a new temple, enjoy several
  years without being persecuted again. (Let brisket cool now.)

  The 10 Plagues:
  Blood, Frogs, Lice-you name it.

  The singing of "Dayenu":
  If G-d had gotten us out of Egypt and not punished our enemies,
  it would've been enough.

  If he'd punished our enemies and not parted the Red Sea, if
  would've been enough.

  If he'd parted the Red Sea-(Remove gefilte fish from
  refrigerator now.)

  Eat matzoh.  Drink more wine.  Slouch.

  Thanks again, G-d, for everything.
