Passover Isn’t Cancelled: Why Is It Different From All Others?

Passover Isn’t Cancelled: Why Is It Different From All Others?

We ask, “Why is tonight different from all other nights?” Mah nishtanah halailah hazeh mikol haleilot?   Passover is about uniting as one and overcoming a treacherous journey through unfamiliar land, while persevering with strength and faith. It celebrates The Exodus of the Jewish people escaping freedom from slavery and the 10 plagues which struck down their oppressors. The Jews were protected from these plagues and their homes were “Passed Over” by having faith and following the commandments of Moses. This Passover is not cancelled. It is a time for us to reflect. Why is this Passover different from all… Continue Reading

The Blame Game: Who Wins?

The Blame Game: Who Wins?

Last week, during my self-imposed quarantine, it became clear to me that I need to write about the pandemic we are facing in the world because it is unlike anything we have ever seen. Some people have decided to rewrite history to make themselves feel better by destroying bits and pieces of what actually happened in the past, but this is going to be an honest and true documentation of what is happening for me, if not for anyone else.  We may not be proud of things that have happened in the past, but they happened, and we need to… Continue Reading

Dear Spoiled Americans,

Dear Spoiled Americans, This is for you! The Coronavirus is affecting every, single one of us. You are not the only one. Ok? So, let’s get that straight. Someone has it worse than you and you need to remember that. It is really easy to be a keyboard warrior while there are real people doing their JOBS going above and beyond to protect you, the ungrateful. They are risking their own lives daily so you can sit from the comfort of your own home, in your pajamas, eating cookies, with your family and complain that you are able to work… Continue Reading

Puppies Make Me Happy: Meet Mr. December aka Teddy Brewski

The Snuggle Is Real! Puppies make me very happy but so does that fact that YOU voted for my puppy, Teddy Brewski to be in the 2020 Puppies Make Me Happy Calendar. He is Mr. December and his caption reads “The Snuggle is Real” and fits him to a tee. We have had a ruff 2019 but the fact that over 600 votes were counted from YOU (real people with a pulse) for the snarkiest Havanese, makes this New Year much sweeter. Teddy Brewski and I wish all of you a fabulous 2020. May this be the best year yet!… Continue Reading

Rosh Hashanah: Spiritual Healing Begins From Within

To all my family and friends who observe, wishing you a very happy and sweet Rosh Hashanah. During the commencement of the Jewish New Year let this first night begin a spiritual journey of introspection and repentance. Let us sit quietly for a moment away from our electronics and focus on ourselves. Spiritual healing and forgiveness must begin from within. From there we may then ask ….. To those I may have wronged…..I ask for forgiveness. To those I may have helped….I wish I had done more. To those I may have neglected to help….I ask for understanding. To those… Continue Reading

Put That Phone Down!!!

Nothing like deleting 7,500 of 44,572 photos for 2 hours from my phone to realize: 1. How many selfies it takes to get a sharable melfie. What a waste of time. 2. How many dumb asses I have dated. All of them…. but it’s a learning experience, right? 3. How many “emotional vampires” I have known, dumped and how many I still need to get rid of (Thanks Steph for the perfect term). Cleaning house feels so good. 4. How bad shopping is online and that nothing ever looks the same once you order and try it on at home…. Continue Reading

My Havanese Dog Vs. Owl Scarecrow

Havanese Dog Vs. Owl Scarecrow

HOO HOO HOO Hello. Is this thing on? It has been a little while and I am squeezing in this post in the middle of the most chaotic 6 months of my life because I have to share. As most of you know, Teddy Brewski (my Havanese) and I live in Arizona. He is never without me on the other end of a leash outside. Who is walking whom, is debatable but that is beside the point. Anyway, there are so many wild animals in Phoenix and I have named them all in hopes that they will play nicely but… Continue Reading
