Global Thoughts — 8 April 2014

I was listening to the Angry Birds theme song as my kid was playing the game, and I figured it could be a Hassidic tune right out of some klezmer village in Eastern Europe. If someone in my synagogue started singing it to the liturgy, I don’t think anyone would notice anything strange about it.… Continue Reading →

I saw the funniest thing when I went to my son’s school to watch him play in a chess tournament. He sat silently, followed the rules and behaved like an adult.

Global Thoughts — 22 March 2013

This past weekend we went to visit my 100 year old great aunt who is in an assisted living facility. When we arrived, my son Jeremy went to the check-in counter and said we were here to visit Fay, and then informed them “she is supposed to die soon.” Actually, my great aunt says she would be thrilled if that were true.… Continue Reading →

DISNEY LAND — Grand Californian Hotel at Disney Land is 30 minutes from Long Beach airport and a $50 taxi. That airport has undergone major renovation.
