On My Blog
If I had more blogging time this week, I would have done a Nature Notes post about both Tu B’Shvat (the Jewish holiday of the trees) and Parshat B’Shalach, before which one is supposed to feed the birds. Here is a nice story about the Maharal, feeding birds, and teaching children.
Thanks to everyone who participated in the Describe Person Experiment. You are still most welcome to participate!
Elsewhere in the Blogosphere
- Mother in Israel quotes a news report: “…what will kill people is not an earthquake. What kills them is the building” – this is similar to what Rutgers Professor Lee Clarke said about buildings in the Midwest.
- The colors of Robin’s flower and Ilana-Davita’s Swedish shed photos are similar in palette, yet the photos are so different in subject matter and in photographic style.
- Mimi cooks up a Tu B’Shvat feast; and G6 has all the seven species ready for her table.
- Raizy shares the wonderful world of parenting teens and cell phone texting charges; we can relate.
- I really enjoyed Michelle’s videos after the rain then during the snow. She’s funny, whether she means to be so or not… listen to the goldfinch who didn’t get the January memo.
- Having been born Jewish, I often find it curious why someone would convert…”There are Jewish roots in my family, on my Dad’s side,” says Rachel. <- I suppose that helps
- Eva Abreu in the Home News Tribune wrote about how people use Twitter to connect and produce new business relationships. She included the example of how I connected with Kacy Campion Renna of CCW Insurance, and I wrote up a post about Eva’s newspaper story.
- Last by not least (or in Hebrew, Aharon Aharon Haviv) Batya hosted KCC #50, the 50th Kosher Cooking Carnival.
