    I don't know the proper thing to day as I'm new in my Judaism, but here's a toast with coffee and a sneezing giraffe.

    Well, it may be the last one!!
    "Sales for freeze-dried food, flashlights, blankets and tents have soared in Utah in recent weeks as some Mormons have begun to prepare for the end of the world. The so-called "preppers" believe the world is ending this month based on biblical prophecies, the Hebrew calendar, an unstable economy, world politics and astronomical occurrences, the Salt Lake Tribune reported Sunday.
    The Mormon apocalypse believers claim the Jewish High Holy Days that began this week will trigger a financial crisis based on the United States’ “wickedness.” They predict the full moon on Sept. 28 is the next sign of the world is ending."

    Oh crap, just as the BWO hatch is getting started!

    G-d bless us every one. Thanks Steven.

    I saw an interesting site while walking my dog yesterday. There were a number of Jewish people on the edge of the lake with men carrying rams horns. Is there a ceremony that involves the blowing of the rams horn? I would have stuck around to witness this, but I did not want to intrude.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    I believe that's called a Shofar. (the horn)

    One of Ricky Scaggs (bluegrass) songs, "Soldiers of the Cross" begins with three blasts of a Shofar. It's a chilling sound.

    Thank you Steven. I thought the New Yeah was Rosh Hashanna (sp?)

    Steven,
    I am over at Midway for a lay over. Come on down and we can celebrate the new year with a pint or two. Anything to drown my pain of having to go to Pittsburgh.

    Yes. Rosh HaShanah. Head (Rosh) of the (Ha) year (Shanah).

    Shanah Tovah is is the traditional greeting. Tovah means good. Hebrew is like Spanish or whatever where the adjective is behind the noun.

    Could be worse, could be going to Milwaukee or the ultimate horror, STAYING in Chicago.

    You are describing Tashlikh. The ritual is to cast bread crumbs into water. The bread crumbs are supposed to represent one's sins. I've never done this...too touch feely for me.

    The idea that Milwaukee is somehow better than Chicago is mind boggling.

    It's definitely something special. I used to belong to a temple where the shofar blower was first seat, French horn, for the Chicago Symphony. He was unbelievable.

    Happy New Year, Steven.

    Now, having atoned, go and sin no more. See the light and campaign for Bernie Sanders, a University of Chicago alumnus.
    The GOP big tent now is the size of a pup tent, its floor splattered with guano.

    So... you people keep your own calendar, your own language, and refuse to integrate with American culture?


    Does Donald Trump know this?


    Happy New Year to you, Steven.

    Milwaukee is nothing more than northern Chicago. Don't think you can say that one is better than the other. :D

    Now who gets to live and who gets to die over these next few days?
