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? 😉

Hyperloop Takes Us Supersonic

Hyperloop Takes Us Supersonic

Elon Musk in a genius — from SpaceX to Tesla to Paypal — he has us inventing like almost no one else can.

Now his concept of the Hyperloop is once again breaking all preconceptions of travel on Earth.

Forget planes, trains, automobiles, and boats–Musk’s promised open source plans would take us from New York to Los Angeles in under 45 minutes!

The system would be built based on the following premises:

– Safer in that it never crashe and is immune to weather

– Faster than any Earth transportation available today

– Cheaper than air travel

– Better using self-powered solar panels and energy storage

In business school, we were taught to think in terms of better, faster, cheaper–what’s amazing about Musk is he has a track record of not just thinking it, but making it so.

While the Hyperloop doesn’t exist today, I find it awfully exciting to think that one day, it will.

On the plus side, Elon Musk makes George Jetson our reality; on the minus side, now we have no reason not to visit the in-laws. 😉
