Sometimes less is more

As in 'I have so much more to say on the current and continuing folly of running after this elusive thing called peace... but I won't'.  At this point I've likely chased away the last thinking leftist ever to visit this site... and I don't need to keep preaching to the choir on the right.

So basically I got nuthin' today except maybe to send you over to the OU site where I have a Thanksgiving post published.

I hope everyone has a fantastic Thanksgiving (we're having our Turkey with my parents Tomorrow night).

Hey, maybe when we all wake up from our tryptophan-induced comas (yes, kids I know it's just a myth), we might find that the Israeli leadership and the American State Department have all somehow miraculously come to their collective senses and told the Palestinians to come back to the table when they can actually offer something tangible in return for Israeli concessions.

Yeah right.

Anyway, Happy Turkey Day to all!

I always liked the line from here:

"What cracks me up is the supposed scientific finding that gets bandied about this time of year that says that turkey contains a chemical that makes you sleepy, as if the people who had ham instead are out roller blading after dinner. When you consume your weight in buttered foodstuffs, you're going to feel a bit nappish, turkey or no turkey."

And if you enjoyed that, you might like his other Thanksgiving post:

Whoooooooops! My bad! 2 posts in one day. Just didn't see the "third" one yesterday, so mistakenly assumed it was today's.....

BTW, your post about your adventure in the supermarket (at the express line) made my ulpan class the other day. All the new olim got a big chuckle out of it and I felt a bit smug that I knew exactly what and who your friend (who retold the story quite well in Hebrew, I might add) was talking about....

Happy Thanksgiving!!!

Hmm,looks like you got a smart-alecky comment from a Shlomo Levin on the OU site.

great post, but did you publish it somewhere already?

my mother-in-law is not observant, but she has been keeping a kosher home for many years out of respect to my wife and her sister.

i shouldn't take this for granted (though i usually do). i had a good friend in hs who became a BT, but his (israeli) parents were not all suportive. they gave him constant grief and he couldn't rely on anything other a toaster oven he bought himself.

happy thanksgiving
