As beautiful as Italy is, as fascinating the conversations, as delicious the meals, as breath-taking the wines… it’s really hard to be away from home right now. I miss Tracie and Baby P so much… On the plane across the Atlantic, I made this video to soothe my lonesomeness and homesick blues while I’m here. “The Story of Baby P So Far (to be continued)”… I hope you enjoy it as much as I do and thanks for letting me share it with you… Buona visione!
And on the subject of family matters…
A taste of Manischewitz for Rosh Hashanah — 11 percent alcohol, mevushal (i.e., cooked so that the wine remains kosher even if handled by non-Jews), “specially sweetened” wine, “containing not less than 51 percent Concord” grapes — inspired me to write a nostalgic post for the Houston Press on Friday, “Manischewitz, a Kiddush Cup Full of Memories.”
Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks for reading.
