4th March 2016
Shabbat Shalom everyone.
Just a quickie note to say that I am not writing today – will do on Sunday or Monday. I underwent surgery, nothing serious but rather uncomfortable, so prefer to wait and write later.
Zvi has been excellent, my daughter Rachel has cooked up a storm and brought it all around for our Shabbat and friends have been kind.
To keep your attention until then here are two items
One a quiz http://bdsguide.com/the-bds-quiz/ from the BDS (Bigoted Destructive and Sociopathic)
The other a beautiful song with a story that reached out to me.At the 2014 Oscars, they celebrated the 75th anniversary of the release of the “Wizard of Oz” by having Pink sing “Somewhere Over the Rainbow”, with highlights from the film in the background. But what few people realized, while listening to that incredible performer singing that unforgettable song, is that the music is deeply embedded in the Jewish experience.http://blogs.timesofisrael.com/pink-the-oscars-and-the-rebirth-of-israel/ Here is Pink singing https://vimeo.com/88056908
I finally made it big as Bob Parks and Laura put my newsletter on his website. http://www.black-and-right.com/2016/02/18/ground-israel-sheila/
That’s it can’t sit any more.
Miss you and love you all
Sheila – at least this means I had time to really appreciate our veranda and the fact that the petunias are about to burst into a riot of colour.
