As of today, I've been in Israel for 10 years. When I tell people that the first 7 were the toughest, they laugh. But I am so not kidding.

 

This is a hard place to get used to. Especially when you arrive with no linguistic, historical or cultural knowledge, and get pre...

I used to know this blind auto mechanic who gave me the best advice of my life. 

 

I was about 10 years old, and at that age, if any adult uses the word "bullshit" with you, you listen and listen good. Any sanctioned use of swear words in my Midwestern world was delectab...

Midwestern Jews are not meant to run. That's because we're klutzy and uncoordinated. Case in point: I have broken one particular toe twice inside three months. And since I'm a perpetual overachiever, this time I broke it so badly that they have a special name for it:...

People ask me lots of questions.

 

Questions about my areas of expertise, generally, just like I ask tech-heads about analytics and numbers people about finance.

Q: What's worse than camping with a diarrhea-ridden child?

It all started out so nicely.  Yes, we had the regular pre-trip balagan:

I like to hang out with artists; they make me feel hip.

 

Several friends of mine have launched home-based businesses monetizing their talents - painters, tie-dyers, knitters, jewelers, sewers (that totally comes out looking like sewers and not sew-ers, sorry ladies...

Today is the best Valentine's Day I've had in years. And my husband isn't even here yet.

 

He’s been gone for just over a week, sucked into the polar vortex that is the Northeast USA. He’s in the armpit of the universe, otherwise known as New Jersey. I am at home with t...

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure. Not only the reason I (and probably most of us) cannot take Keanu Reeves seriously in any film, but also a classic.

 

Strange things are afoot at the Circle K.

 

Go ahead, date yourself. Tell me that you remember when they had the brilli...

Inspired by Dan Pearce's candor in his recent post "An Open Letter To Ye Who is Always Late" which espouses on chronically tardy (read: disrespectful) people, I have a similar rant:

 

"Wanna go to the zoo on Wednesday afternoon?"

"Yeah, maybe."

"Um, you want to join us...
