Shana Tova. Happy 5783!

Dear Silly Ones,

It's Rosh Hashanah, a new year for the Jewish people. I like to declare a new year for all. Always a good time to nurture and mark newness. Our mission is everyone's: to bring a more peaceful world, a healed earth. "Tikkun Olam" means just that, to heal the earth. 

So, dear Sillies, Shana Tova. That is, "Happy New Year!"

Only at this time of year, you can find circular challah bread at places like Trader Joe's. The shape represents the cycle of life. And you know how the middle is the best part? Well, it's almost all middle with this one. Thus, it's almost all gone. JT and I went at it last night, and I've nearly finished it this morning. Add honey to challah bread or, more traditionally, apples; eat, and enjoy the sweetness of a new year.

Diclaimer: Forgive this half-tuchased (polite Yiddish word for "assed") rhyme. I'm rusty. Haven't written a poem in years. This is a silly, practice run. Thank you


We're old
and we've begot A LOT

We fought, got caught

We died and then

survived to press 

repeat again 

So hold to hope 

and visions sweet

For where there's care

There's no defeat. 

And heck 

Love keeps us all in check!

Happy 5783

That's darn old 

Or is it just me?

Chocolate Tastings, In Her Majesty's (Not you, HRH) Memory

Dear Sillies,
For your sake, and in memory of the dearly departed Queen Elizabeth II, I've sampled some chocolate.
   Doesn't it feel as though the world's lost its loving, tough-as-nails Grandma? What a peach she was! And Queen Elizabeth II loved her chocolate. She was smart, after all. Her all-time favorite chocolate was Bendicks Bittermints, a minty fondant covered in 95% dark chocolate. Woowee. 
   If anyone gets ahold of this precious item (even you, HRH), do contact me. I will then bribe you to send one my way and will reward you profusely (even you, HRH).
Sorry to take things ugly now, but what the heck happened to Count Chocula? Look at his "x" eyes, and his Bugs Bunny teeth. 

   As per my sweetheart of 15 months now (I know, poor guy!), JT, this cereal is "okay" but "they skimped on the marshmallows." Also, what's with Count Chocula's hair? And what the heck are those gray puffy things on the sides of his head? Yikes.
   I can only give this cereal a 4, because the Count has devolved way too far. Count Chocula's enticingly dangerous charm is nowhere to be found. 

   I'm now sipping a nice warm cup of Numi's Chocolate Rooibos organic tea. It's pretty good - rich, earthy, with hints of dark cocoa. I actually added peppermint tea to it, which improved the taste. It needs something, perhaps a bit of honey or brown sugar otherwise. I do recommend it, and I give this an 8 on a 1-10 scale.  

Keep sweet thoughts and items in your life, daily.

Love you, my Sillies.

Naughty Teacher: Teacherotica!

Dear Sillies,

A healthy, manageable September to you!

It's back to school time, and I'm a strong proponent of higher education. Learning is good. Learning by doing, even better. Gentle yet decisive individualized hands on guidance (between consenting adults, of course), as good as it gets. 

Enjoy. Wink.
