Magic Cream

Wow, this was incredible for my kids to find in the store…

Magic Skin Cream


My dad of blessed memory, when he was alive created a cream called, “Magic Cream.”


And it really was magic–he would put it on regularly to heal virtually any routine skin ailment. 


It used all natural ingredients and he carefully protected the secret formula.


To now see the magic cream in a major retail store left me really surprised. 


I wish that he had been able to bring his magic cream to market and that it would have been a huge success. 


IMHO, my dad deserved this achievement–he was brilliant and hardworking and most importantly, a super good person with tremendous faith in G-d and real integrity.  


I miss him dearly. 😉

Scary Model of Cancer

Saw this at a doctors office in one of the patient rooms. 


At first I wasn’t even sure what it was. 


Looks like a stomach.


What are those globs?


Oy, they represent malignant tumors (from what I understood reading the fine print). 


Really makes it hit home when you see it in front of you on display like that. 


So much suffering from illnesses like cancer.


G-d should have mercy. 


We really need to find “the cure!”  


Imagine what a day that will be.  😉

Your Expiration Date

So I was talking to someone about their challenges in life.


And they said something that really hit a chord:

You never know what your expiration date is!


What an interesting way to say you never know when your time is up.


They used the phrase “expiration date” like we so commonly see on food and medicine products. 


You know when you read the label and it tells you to discard after a certain date. 


So people are like all these other goods that have a date stamped on them.


We have a date stamped on us (maybe it’s on our forehead or some other less conspicuous place), and we just can’t see it. 


Yet, we need to live every day as if that expiration date is coming due. 


Because like that stale food in your fridge or the old medicine in your cabinets, everything and everybody has a shelf life.


So you better live every day good and meaningfully before your expiration date comes due. 😉

Limp Noodles {SAD}

No, they’re not noodles.


They are pencils in the museum. 


And they are certainly limp, if not completely dead. 


Who in the world would use a clown pencil like this?


This is some serious dysfunction. 


If I could, I would certainly prescribe some much needed Viagra for these. LOL


They are that sad! 😉

Shopping Vs Psychiatrist

This sign had a pretty good point:

“Shopping is cheaper than a psychiatrist.”


Plus it’s more fun and you get to take the junk home that you buy.


For many, shopping truly is a form of mental/stress relief–almost like medicine. 


Unfortunately, if you think about it, things don’t really make a person happy…rather people do and doing good does. 


But industry wants you to think a lot more superficially and materialistically than that. 


Hence the notion that if you take your daily dose of shopping, maybe you can skip the shrink! 😉

Amazing – They Go In And See

Had my routine colonoscopy this morning. 


It is so amazing that they can go in with camera and everything. 


Look around and if necessary, cut out anything bad. 


Years ago, people just felt sick or pain and maybe saw some symptoms from outside.


But they had no idea what was happening inside. 


So grateful to G-d for the technology and doctors that can make sure all is okay. 


We are truly living in miraculous times. 


They even send you home with some pictures afterward.


It’s interesting to see, but maybe a little TMI. 😉

Beautiful Architecture, Washington DC

Check out this beautiful exterior architecture.  


This fine exquisite pattern is all around this building by Metro Center. 


I think this must’ve been restored over the last few years, because I don’t remember it being this colorful and awesome in the past. 


Civilization can still create some amazing works…whether technology, medical cures, and even beautiful pieces of artwork. 


Now we just need to proceed with the positives of creativity and productivity without destroying ourselves with indifference, dysfunction, and mismanagement in the process. 😉
