Passover humor

A Jew took his Passover lunch to eat outside in the park. He sat down on a bench and began eating. Shortly thereafter a blind man came by and sat down next to him.

Feeling neighborly, the Jew offered a sheet of matzoh to the blind man.

The blind man ran his fingers over the matzoh for a minute, and exclaimed, “Who wrote this?”

*******

A good Passover to all my friends who celebrate. We’re having matzoh brie for dinner tonight. My husband’s going to be very surprised. He thinks it’s Easter.

It’s not always what it looks like

Photoshop cookies

Angie Benedetti sends me the best links! And apparently the strains of editing were getting to her (there’s a new Hidden Magic novel in the not so distant future, how cool is that? Mannie’s story at last!) because she found the perfect mashup of computers and food. For those of you who get posts as emails,  the video probably won’t work, but come on over and poke the play button.

The way Photoshop and I get along, we might not eat very much if I cooked this way, but dang, what little I could manage would be consistent.

It’s Everywhere! It’s Everywhere!

It’s hard to get me to laugh until my sides hurt and tears are rolling down my cheeks, but damned if the Federal Trade Commission didn’t achieve just that.

The company I work for has been the target of a hostile takeover attempt, which has had us in a state of unrest for several months now. On Friday, the long awaited FTC ruling was unveiled, and we could all breathe a sigh of relief. Why it took so long is a mystery to me, since I read the ruling on our hostile suitor’s last acquisition, and those conditions no longer apply, but that’s a separate rant.

Wanting to see the good news in the original language, I pulled up the FTC document on line, reading this and that about restraint of trade and market share. Yes, good, fine, someone’s used good sense, thank G-d, and here’s the ruling: the FTC is blocking the acquisition.

And at the bottom of this official government document: Like the FTC on Facebook and follow us on Twitter.
