Miami Blue Porsche

Wow, I fell in love with this Porsche 718 Cayman. 


Blue like the sky and ocean in Miami.


I got my eye on this one!


Now if only my wife would see the wisdom in why I absolutely need this!


Anyway, I can enjoy the photo and dream for now. 😉

The Traveling Chassidim

We went to Havdalah with the Traveling Chassidim at Aish HaTorah in Rockville. 


It was so wonderful and spiritually uplifting. 


At around mark 11:00, I get to wear the shtreimel hat and I get to drop the shtreimel hat (that was funny)!


These Chassidim from Monsey and Brooklyn were so wonderful. 


They leave their communities and homes to come out for Shabbat to other Jewish communities around the country and do beautiful outreach. 


So giving, loving, and caring with their whole families. 


The music, song, and joy they bring are beyond words. 


The Traveling Chassidim are wonderful and they make a terrific Havdalah at the end of the Shabbat. 😉

My Contribution To Love

So I saw a casual work friend the other day doting around what looked like his girlfriend. 


They looked really cute together.


And this guy is in his 60’s and lost his wife a number of years ago to cancer, so I was really happy to see him happy, and playful in love again. 


After a while, I took the opportunity to play cupid best I could. 


I told her how nice this guy was and how well he takes care of his customers. 


I ended by saying how we really love having him around and how it wouldn’t be the same without him. 


I could see him behind her smiling ear-to-ear–this lady really meant something to him.


When I saw him again today, I asked innocently, “so was that your girlfriend?” and like a young teenager in love, he smirked and nodded. 


It was obvious how much it meant to him that I spoke well of him to her. 


What can I say, I am really happy to make a little contribution to love–and I am really happy for them. 😉

Welcome To Israel Henna Party

So we arrived in Israel for our daughter’s wedding. 


It was amazing to me to see how the Holy Land has so developed from when I was here last over 25-years ago.


It is a thriving nation in every sense of the word. 


Just as G-d has promised, the land and it’s people have blossomed under His blessings.


I am grateful to G-d for helping me to reach this wonderful and happy time. 


Tonight, we had a wonderful dinner with the in-laws and there was a henna ceremony as well–for good luck (Mazel Tov)!

Little did I know, I thought this bowl of henna was chocolate fudge and part of dessert–good thing that I didn’t take a staining bite out of that


How would that have looked in the wedding pictures? 😉

Trendy – Shoes and Bag In One

I thought this was a very creative ladies bag.


It combines two things that many love–shoes and bags!


No, you’re not putting your shoes in the bag.


And you’re definitely not wearing your bag on your feet (that’s another blog on innovation).


In this case, the shoes (and legs) are the design on the bag itself and make up the shoulder straps to carry it. 


Creative and fun thinking, right?


Also, I like the design of bold colors of the red and white sneakers and the blue jeans on the black bag. 


This is both functional and cool, and I like the trend of “mixing it up.”


The straps are the legs and shoes–pretty smart! 😉

World Of Amazing Times and People

Took this video at the World of Montgomery Festival today. 



The dancers, singers, drummers, and costumes were all great.



The weather today an unseasonably warm 76 degrees and being out and about was fun. 



Plus it was an extra special treat to meet up with my pal Congressman Jamie Raskin. 


Thank you G-d for all the amazing times and good people.

@Bethesda Trolley Trail

You can walk for miles…

It’s quiet and green in a suburban setting.

Who’s that dummy?

Lovers come out here too.

Some graffiti tells you there is still the big city of Washington, D.C. nearby.

A little surveillance—the “I’s” have it!

ADT security plus some colorful wind adornments in front of the houses. 

Park is good, but only until sunset. 


Watch out, “old people” crossing (saw a deer too).

 

The whole trail runs between Rockville and Bethesda–see the French International School, The National Institute of Health, Suburban Hospital, houses, shopping, parks, and more. 

Try not to get too lost in the fun of it all.  😉
