Shana Tova

Thirty something people for dinner tonight (at least it's down from the forty something we were expecting last week). The soup and matzo balls are made, the bread baked, the cinnamon rolls (babka) came out nicely, potato kugel looks good, the lazagne is ready to be fired - and that's just our contribution. We'll have brandy and sponge-cake (actually honey cake in this part of the world) to remember my dad. All the kids are home, include blacknephewo. So it must be Chag. Well all that's left is to wish you all a very happy and healthy Jewish New Year. Don't overeat, and remember you have only 10 days left to get signed into the good book, so be good. Oh and anyone whom I've offended over the last year, forgive me please.

Thanks. The evening went of splendidly, although we had way too much food. Everything was excellent and the visitors enjoyed the brandy and honeycake.
