Rubber Ducky You’re The One

What a variety of Rubber Ducks. 

They were giving these away in the doctor’s office. 

Not quick sure why???

The guy gave me a half a dozen, and each one duck is different. 

Fun in the bath for the grandchild.  

They float and make quack-quack. 😉

Sheep No More

Please see my new article in The Times of Israel called, Sheep No More

In thinking about sacrifices as animal substitution for consequences to man, we can also reverse this logic to explore what sacrifices can teach us about consequences to man in their relationship to the Jewish people. In this particular case, I am thinking about Jewish responses to those who desire to be our friends and want to build kind and productive relationships with us or the opposite, to our enemies, who seek to persecute, attack us, and make the Jews their korban, victims.

In short, traditional korbanot in the Temple can teach us not only about how animals can substitute for people in our sacrifices to G-d for thanksgiving, communion, and acknowledging of consequences and teshuva (repentance) for our wrongdoing, but also how the Jewish people can relate to the nations of the world in everything from full peace, positive engagement, acts of guilt and sin against us, and even full-fledged war. Sacrifices teach us that while peace is always the desired state and fiery war a last resort in our self-defense and preservation, we know that after thousands of years of anti-Semitism, persecution, and Holocaust, we are no longer the sacrificial lamb on anyone’s Temple altar.

Who You Calling Bull?

For those who watched Fear The Walking Dead this week…

You know what I mean with this picture.

Zombies + Taxidermy = Some scary grafted dudes!

No one can call bull on this show. 😉

Sweet Little Bunny

Wow, what a sweet little bunny. 

Surprised s/he let me get so close without hopping away. 

The eyes seemed a little bugged out. 

Nothing to be afraid of little bunny. 

We’re not on the survival TV show Alone, so no one here is going to eat you. 

Run free and enjoy the garden little bunny. 

Life is good for you. 😉

Duracell Vs Energizer Showdown

This display in Home Depot was like the Duracell vs. Energizer dual to the death for batteries. 


Which one wins?


The whisper is that Duracell beats Energizer close to 2 to 1 for most things. 


Whether or not that’s true, the Energizer rabbit “keeps going and going” while the Duracell is copper-topped.


Copper? Bunny? Bunny is cuter! 😉
