Limitless Potential for Good

When trolls and bigots keep me up nights wondering why I bother to maintain this site, stories like this remind me of blogging's limitless potential for good. 

Please join me in wishing a continued and full recovery to 'A Simple Jew's son.

What a great way to start off the new year.

Don't tell me that you're "burning out."

Kol hakavod! Something about the value of saving lives/universes comes to mind...

That's so great.

And you've become like a cup of coffee in the morning for me and countless others, so don't even THINK about discontinuing this blog thing, mister! ;)

I read EVERY post. Like Val, you're like my "cup of coffee" in the morning. I get up and the first thing I do is pour my coffee and then check my bloglines and I'm always happy when you've posted. So it is 7:30am and here I am. I just got attacked by a troll on my YouTube account with an anti-Semitic remark who signed up for an account just to harass me. I love that delete function. Stick with your blog. You are awesome.

during the yom -tov meal we were trying many kinds of honey and a discussion took place, there were 8 intelligent adults at the table (and me makes 9) and various Jewish brilliant kids and no body knew how come there are two kinds of honey (in England at least) the set thick kind and the 'normal runny kind' - please help if you can.

See , your blog has lots of uses.

I know that one. Honey can crystallize (I've never seen it totally dry like white sugar, but it has gotten pretty thick). This tends to happen if you let it sit for a while. Mostly, this is considered a flaw, and you heat it up to dissolve the crystals. However, sometimes they blend this honey with the thinner honey and sell it as creamed honey.

My daughter Orli also had her adenoids removed this summer. Although her symptons and situation were different than your boys, your posts definitely made it easier for me to deal with it (and I also got some private words of encouragement from Zehava, which was really nice!).

Val and I do the same thing in the morning. Coffee perked, check, Trep located, check. Sit down and enjoy your post and the beginning of the day has started.
