Happy Rosh Hashanah! Jewish New Year 5781

 Dear Sillies,
   This Friday eve marks a New Year for the Jewish people. If you feel old, consider this: We're embarking on the our 5,781st birthday bash! I know. Oy vey. 
   Because a fresh start is as imminent as it is welcome, I invite you to celebrate Rosh Hashanah* too. 
   Let's work towards a more peaceful, safe, and kind year across the globe. 
   Shana Tova! (Hebrew for "Happy New Year.")

*The start of the 10-day Jewish New Year. We dip apple slices in honey, then eat and enjoy, for a sweet new year.
  Here I am with two siblings in 1969 (Jewish New Year 5,730). My other brother, Jonathan, was a mere embryo. {Technology was a lot more primitive back then. Thus, he's not pictured. =)}

 We wish you many moments of sweetness in the year ahead, along with greatly improved peace throughout the world.


  1. A big, big hooray for sweetness. And hope. And laughter.
    And yes, this morning I am feeling every one of those multitudinous years...

    1. Ha. Every single one.
      "Multitudinous" is a great word. Thank you.
      Sweetness in abundance to you in 5781, EC.

  2. I love this pic. And I wish you a Happy New Year in all the right ways. I love apples and honey (or caramel). I shall celebrate in spirit. Let's hope the Jewish New Year brings about awesome changes. Show us the light and the way. (no pressure)

    1. I'll keep giving it my best, Joanne.
      Caramel apples you say? Hmmm. Sure. That works too.
      Thank you.

  3. Well, yes, let's hope God works by this calendar, after all he gave it to the Hebrews, and ends this year on Friday. The last six months could have been six years.

    Regardless, Shana Tova, Robyn!

    1. Thank you, Sage.
      L'Shana Tova and many continued blessings to you.

  4. Happy High Holy Days! Look at you, in your cute little paisley (?) dress! And I bet those shoes are patent leather, aren't they! (I'm assuming you're the oldest one?)

    1. Actually, that's my sis in the groovy paisley dress. I remember it well. I think I wanted it. Patent leather shoes too. I'm probably not wearing shoes. I never liked wearing them.

      Here's the breakdown (which I failed to include), left to right: Dawn approx 4.5, Glenn approx 2, me approx 3.5. =)

      Cheers and Happy New Year.

  5. Happy Rosh Hashanah! We need a fresh start.

    1. Moses knows, Alex. Yes. Thanks so much.
      Happy New Year to you. (We all need a fresh start.)

  6. I wish we really could start a new year now.

  7. Would sure be great if more peace was spread about indeed.

  8. I frequently get cold sores(which lasts for 5-6 days on my lips and its painful both physically and mentally) .. As a bodybuilder, I basically get outbreak due to the daily pressure and heat in the body.. Recently I stumbled upon my salvation. I found a herbal remedy to cure hsv completely, in just 4weeks ..

    I got to know about Dr Utu after seeing a lady's testimony online. I reached the doctor and I ordered for herpes herbal medicine. He sent the herbs to me and I started making use of them. In just 2days, the cold sores are cleared. 4weeks after medication, I went to the hospital for test of cold sores and it was completely NEGATIVE.

    By following every prescription, i was able to cure my cold sore in less than 4weeks. 100% natural herbs no after effect.
    Note: Please do let others know if this work for you.
    The doctor's email is
    Note : follow all instructions accordingly..

    If you are sure that you have benefited from this African herbs be courageous to inform others.
    Thanks in advance
