I was glancing through keywords that got people to my site (one of the main keywords that keeps repeating itself is Pittsburgher Rebbi. It comes up every time I look and from different places. What do you think you're going to find about the Pittsburgher Rebbi here???) and I saw that someone had googled "MyShan". I thought this was a bit weird, so I clicked on the link and it says "ISP Israeli Government Network". Am I being monitored? I don't think I update this enough, or write about anything too important to be monitored. Do they know where I live??? And if they know the blog name, why do they google it? Why not just type it into the address bar???????

In unrelated news, it was brought to my attention that I had blocked comments. I must have done that by mistake while updating the blog look. Comments have been turned back on.

I have an amazing costumer service story to tell, about a level of service people don't believe exists in this country. But I have to start cooking the chicken now, so I'll save it for another time.

Shabbat Shalom.

Viagra Saves Life

I was in a cab tonight on my way home and I heard the most bizarre story. A baby was born in Tzfat with a life threatening blood flow problem three weeks ago. All conventional methods of dealing with it didn't work, so they tried something different. They gave the three week old viagra to help the blood flow. and it worked! She's out of danger now.

Viagra-it's not just for old men!!

P.S. I cant find the news story anywhere in English, but here it is in Hebrew.

Nir Barkat is a Good Man

Yesterday we received a bag with a little booklet from Nir Barkat. The booklet was entitled "City Watch-Taking the Cleaning In Our Hands." Nir Barkat has been running a campaign to clean up Jerusalem. Every few weeks he has volunteers go around to different neighborhoods and clean them up. The latest project is this Friday, Tu Bshvat. "Everyone throw away one piece of trash, Together there will be 700,000 less pieces of garbage." All I know about Nir Barkat is that he started one of the first (the first?) hi tech companies in Jerusalem and he ran for mayor last time but lost to Lapoliansky. I don't know if he'd make a good mayor or what he stands for, but I'm glad he came up with this campaign.
