Not 2 Be Missed | Presidential dream: long walk in the park

WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama wants you to know that he is not a golf addict.

He spends so much time unwinding on the links because security restrictions mean he can’t go out for long walks or go to the carwash or the grocery store.

The president’s comments came during a session with editors and publishers from Hearst Magazines in which he described life behind the scenes in the White House.

Manischewitz Cook-Off National Finals 2011

Manischewitz Cook-Off National Finals 2011

The Fifth Annual Man-O-Manischewitz National Cook Off just finished, and, man, I’m still buzzing. There was some serious high-octane, high-pressure, high-quality cooking, and I don’t think I expected to see any of that. I mean, this is Manischewitz you’re talking about — the matzah and wine people.

But this wasn’t your bubbe’s Manischewitz. Not only was the competition a slick, well-presented show at the stylin’ Uptown …

Shabbos meals that last too long piss me off

Click to Enlarge

One of the ills affecting the Jewish community of the Bay Area is lengthy meals. I am sure this exists elsewhere, but never have seen it get so out of hand and I have felt that it’s high time for things to change. In general the hachnasas orchim is amazing here.

There aren’t too many single folks in most of the shuls and in general someone will invite you out. I like to

Leftover Cholent: A new frum blog with some potential

Click to Enlarge

I generally don’t read blogs, heck I schedule most of my blog posts, tweets and other goodies so I don’t have to spend valuable outdoors time keeping up with this wonderful online community that has been outgrowing this blog and forcing some fans to even meet each other in real life.
