What's New

This page will be periodically updated as things happen in my life and/or I add essays to the Jewish Page.

I've been taking turns teaching a parshah hashavua class each Shabbat. My latest was fairly well received, so I thought I'd write it out and post a link to Parashat Mishpatim.

Simchat Torah was my father a"h's yarzeit. I wrote an essay on Cycles of Life in his memory.

I officially changed my domain today. New domain is NightRoadsAssoc.com, because someone stole NightRoads.

Wonderful news from the doctor today. My A1C test, which measures the average blood sugar levels for a three month period, came back 5.7. Anything under 6 is considered non-diabetic. Also, my glucose level was 78. This does not mean I'm not diabetic, precisely. It does mean that what have is no longer dangerous. More importantly, it means that I'm on the right track in terms of my diet. I've also lost about ten pounds, so that's also on the right track.

Got a call from the insurance inspector today. Mabel is no more - it costs more than she's worth to fix her. I will miss her.
