Gilad Shalit was three years in captivity on Thursday:

Iran: Its About the Women (hat tip: Ilana-Davita)
When we heard Dr. Kedar speak in Highland Park a few months ago, he had a similar message in general about Islam — they don’t want women to have freedom.

Ilana-Davita says

Looking forward to JPIX. I must remember to advertise it first thing Sunday morning along with the next installment of the MesorahProject.
Meanwhile Shabbat Shalom.

Jew Wishes says

It's been another busy blog week for you.

Leora says

Actually, this week was almost all photo memes, which take me a lot less time than other posts. It was more of a busy work week for me (although Thursday I spent a lot more time on Twitter tweeting #Gilad than I usually do).

I see I forgot to add the recipe, the one that took me the longest. I'll add it now.

Jew Wishes says

Oops, sorry, the snapdragon photo is wonderful.

flyingbubbie says

The flowers are finally EVERYWHERE!

Nicole says

Oh, now I know what you guys call this beautiful flower.
I like these a lot, but I doubt I've seen this coulour before.

ramblingwoods says

I love snapdragons..I had them at my former home, I should plant some here...

Ellie says

My grandma had this flower in her garden always - she called it - the puppies - because if you squeeze it - it looks like a barking dog - Shame of me - but as a kid I squeezed many of my grandma's puppies - she had them in different colors - but they bark the same :)

Sara Chapman in Seattle says

Wow, your snaps reseeded! I'm so impressed. Here in Seattle that's not gonna happen, I don't think. Lovely photo, and thanks for visiting. Sorry for the late return visit!

Leora says

Sara, any time a visit is welcome, especially for a comment about snapdragons.

Yes, I love that they do! I have them all over the front of my house now, along with the yellow black-eyed Susans and white alyssum. I have learned which flowers are happy in my soil.

medam says

I like these flowers. I too have them in my garden in various colors. Your photo is beautiful!

Carver says

The snapdragon is beautiful. Mine used to come back from seeds set in the fall but the past few years I haven't had any. I have a lot of plants like that which didn't come back during a drought but once it ended many still didn't come back.

I was sorry to read about the host of JPIX's mother on your top post and will send out good thoughts and prayers for her.
