As an update on security, our daughter just told us that we have gas masks in the drawer in our bedroom. Thought that you might like to know. I didn't. Today we took a taxi to lunch and then walked across the street to a scheduled discussion at the
American &Canadians in Israel center. Lunch was in a huge mall. I had my purse searched which is standard for all public buildings. Inside the mall, I was supposed to go to a certain eating place, but I got confused and ended up at an Aroma cafe. That
worked for us because Aroma makes a great cappachino .WE have found that the servings are so large, that we can split a sandwich and still be full. However, we did need two cups of coffee apiece with our chocolate croissant. While we were people watching,
we saw a lot of young men who looked like Rabbi Dan. Those of you in Venice will understand. He would love to be where I am right now, I bet. The discussion at the AACI was very interesting. The Brothers Karamazov. Not that I am particularly interested in
having my mind stimulated, but the facilitator was very good. I may even read the book again after reading it 50 or so years ago. Coming home , I had a little trouble getting the taxi I was supposed to order, but with a phone call to my daughter, where I whined
about being frustrated, we worked it out and I found my way home. I have to admit that I was a little anxious about the taxi going to the right place.Home again, home again, jiggily jig. Wait, is that piggy Kosher?
