  • Meg Whitman:  Millions Down the Toilet and No Pot to Take The Edge Off

    By Ilana Angel

    If I spent 142 million dollars on something, and in the end did not get what I spent all the money on, I would be pissed.  It is mind boggling that Meg Whitman spent so much of her own personal money on a campaign that did not make her Governor.

    She told her supporters, “Tonight has... read on

    I do not vote because I am not an American citizen.  I am Canadian who lives and works in the United States with a Permanent Resident Alien Card.  I’m not sure why I’ve never applied for citizenship.  No reason really.  At this point my green card expires the same year my son... read on

    I fainted when my doctor told me I was pregnant.  We had been trying for so long, the news I was finally going to have a baby was overwhelming.  I wanted to be a mom for as long as I can remember.  It was my dream as a little girl, and being a mom is the greatest accomplishment of... read on

    We all knew that Judd Apatow was talented, but seriously, this is brilliant.  I imagine that years will go by and this will still be considered funny.  You don’t need to be a Jew to get it, all you need is a sense of humor.  Bravo to the American Jewish World Service organization for this classic.  Beyond going viral, will it help generate much needed money for your important cause?  I’m keeping the faith.

    This list of Jewish “words” was sent to me by a friend, who received it from her Dad.  I don’t know who came up with them, but they are hilarious so I thought I would share.  Whoever came up with these gets a round of applause from me.  Brilliant.

    My mother’s sister passed away yesterday.  She had been ill, and even though we knew we would lose her, she had hung on for so long we thought it was possible she would be okay.  My mother is one of eight children and my aunt Sarah was the youngest.
