Happy New Year To You and Yours

Hello out there in technology land! I just arrived at my daughter-in-law Sharon’s home in Westchester. Jacob has been on my you know what for the past hour about my lack of what he calls “web presence” since Pesach. After I figured out exactly what he was talking about I decided I better get my ol’ keester up to the computer room to wish everyone a Happy New Year. 

Rosh Hashonah marks the Jewish New Year. It is when us Jews reflect on the past year and look forward to the year to come. This past year has been both wonderful and difficult for me. I am lucky to still be living my life with my unbelievable wife Gertie and my whole big beautiful family. On the other hand, I have been having a rough go at it these last five months or so.

I’ve never spoken about it before on my computer but I have some chronic pain that I deal with on a daily basis and haven’t been feeling like myself until just recently.  This is why Jacob hasn’t been bugging me to blog…but I’m feeling much better now thanks to many, many, many different doctors so I hope to be on the computer talking with you all more often. Jacob just said that the worse thing a blogger can do is “not blog,” “leave their fans hanging,” or “drop off the face of the blogosphere.” So here I am again. I apologize for leaving you all with no advance notice. I feel just awful about it.

I’m busy in the kitchen helping Sharon prepare dinner. Stay tuned for some of my favorite holiday recipes.
