    It was a beautiful morning in May on the world's highest mountain, and Dan Mazur was feeling good. He had been hiking throughout the night in below-freezing temperatures, and now he and his team -- a sherpa and two other climbers -- had only two hours to go until reaching the summit...

    I had been waiting seven years, and my machon summer at Camp Ramah in Ojai was finally here. It would be different from every other summer, because we would finally be the oldest group, and camp domination would be ours. I knew it would be bittersweet, and I looked forward to making...

    By Dan Pine

    November 3, 2005 | 7:00 pm

    "Love With Noodles" by Harry I. Freund (Carroll & Graff, $25).

    Consider the curious case of Dan Gelder: 60 years old, Jewish, paunchy, bad back. Yet it seems every bejeweled Park Avenue matron is after the investment counselor for love, for money or maybe for just a quick roll in...
