September 7, 2018

It's time to Blow the Chauffeur (I think I got that right).  Gosh, has it been sixty years since I told my classmates at Horace Mann that I wouldn't be in school the next day because of the Jewish holidays?  Be careful what you wish for.  I tripped on a garden hose, broke my arm, and didn't go to school the next day.  I've always felt that should get me part way to Honorary Hebrew.

Speaking of the Jewish Holidays, who's hungry for Matzo Balls and Chiles?  Click HERE to read the recipe in the New York Times.

The folks running the Class of '63 Reunion (to which the Classes of '62 and '64 are invited) need to hear from you NOW!!  Click HERE for all the information you'll require.

What have YOU accomplished lately?  Did you ever get around to cleaning out the garage?  Four years ago Sharon Culver Considine shared a photo of herself, an Ernie Wright statue, and Eugene Yang and Said Shaba at Colina del Sol.  Click HERE to get an update on what the boys did with the scholarships Sharon's group awarded them at that time.

I'm very reluctant to get into politics, but sometimes I can't help myself.  Last week the head of the California Democratic Party called for a boycott of In-N-Out Burger after learning that the company had donated $25,000 to the state's Republican Party.  Turns out a lot of Democrats thought that party loyalty only went so far.  The boycott was called off a day or so later.  Click HERE to read the story in the Los Angeles Times.

If anyone can figure out how much a flu shot costs at CVS let me know.

Here's a Henry Bliss comic published this past week.
