  • Welcome your oil-less future

    October 23, 2013 | 4:23 pm

    I first became aware of autonomous cars when I read of Google’s successful attempt last year to drive a Prius from San Francisco to Los Angeles without human intervention. To be clear, a human was in the car, but he was there only in case he was needed — and the need never came up....

    by Marcy Oster, JTA

  • Chicks and Cars

    By Ilana Angel

    July 12, 2012 | 7:01 pm

    I wish I was the type of chick that knew about cars.  I cannot change a tire, or my oil, and I describe things in my car as doohickeys and thingamajigs.  The only thing I am able to do in terms of my car, besides drive it, is gas it up. By drive it of course I mean I am a New York...

  • Looking for chametz in car, coat and computer

    March 29, 2012 | 5:02 pm

    Who are the chametz seekers, those dutiful service technicians who in preparation for Passover, and for a fee, help us search and destroy the hidden, unexpected unleaven in our lives?

    Yes, for some, it’s not nearly enough to change over the dishes, scrub the kitchen, vacuum the...

  • My Hiatus from Online Dating Sadly, and Thankfully, Comes to an End

    By Ilana Angel

    September 26, 2011 | 10:36 am

    I have not had a date in 2 weeks.  One crazy date too many put me over the edge, and I had to walk away from it all.  I simply could not handle going out on another nightmare.  I knew I hit the wall when a man contacted me online and his email made me sick.  Everything he wrote made...

  • Boys and their animal instincts

    By Julia Bendis

    September 5, 2011 | 5:25 pm

    What is it about children that makes them want to jump all over people, me in particular?  I am sitting on the couch, minding my own business when out of nowhere my six-year-old son decides to pounce on me.  Not only pounce like a cheetah, or a lion or pick your own animal but start...

  • Tooth Fairy money and other useless artifacts of choice…

    By Julia Bendis

    August 2, 2011 | 2:37 pm

    Apparently, The Tooth Fairy is going through tough economic times too.  10% of children did not receive any money this year, and 7% received less than a dollar.  Are you kidding me?  First of all, I don’t understand the whole “Tooth Fairy” thing as it is.  In what messed up...

  • Its Just Like Riding a Bike! In My Case a Big-Wheeler…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 29, 2011 | 9:48 pm

    The teenager in me is at it again!  Every time I pass a Harley-Davidson motorcycle, I have to stop, look at it, examine it and maybe even take a picture for my “wish list” of things I want on my future bike.  Sometimes I’ll even talk to the owner of the bike to get more details on...

  • So much for trying to be a Good Samaritan…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 26, 2011 | 11:22 am

    Driving today, I came to a car that broke down. I got out of my car and went to ask if they needed help. As I approached the two men standing around, they both stared at me as if to say: “What do you want?”

    I asked if they were alright, and needed any help. At first they...

  • Supermarket Memories…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 9, 2011 | 3:20 pm

    Every time I’m at the Supermarket, I start to remember my very first trip to one just like it.  When you come to America from the former Soviet Union and enter ANY grocery store, you are bound to go into shock.  As I’ve written before, the shelves of U.S.S.R.’s grocery stores...

  • Summer Rules are not meant to be followed, at least in my house…

    By Julia Bendis

    July 6, 2011 | 12:01 pm

    I am just not as Tiger-esque as I had hoped to be this summer, in fact I am the very opposite of the Tiger Mother!  But, I did have big plans to become one over the summer break…  And even bigger plans to grow a pair when it comes to my children NOT sitting around watching TV,...

  • More Facts, Questions and Things I Will Never Understand or Have Answers To.

    By Julia Bendis

    June 29, 2011 | 4:22 pm

    1. Why Oh why do people insist on asking how you are doing, when they don’t plan on listening to the answer?  Just say “Hello” and keep walking!  But don’t ask people how they are, and then interrupt them mid-sentence to tell them how late you are and need to run!

    2. Why is it that...

  • Vintage Stores and the big Dilemma…

    By Julia Bendis

    June 20, 2011 | 2:12 pm

    I absolutely love shopping at Vintage and Second-Hand shops.  The thrill of getting a one of a kind piece of jewelry or dress is indescribable!  Finding that beautiful 50’s dress that no one else has is one of the reasons I enjoy Thrift stores, another is the fact that I absolutely...

  • Oh Jared Leto, how little I knew about your band…

    By Julia Bendis

    April 11, 2011 | 2:07 pm

    What started out as a surprise of a lifetime, quickly turned into a XXX porn show for many children and one particular fifth-grader.

    I like to think that I am a pretty fun parent, but when my husband and I surprised our eleven-year-old with tickets to Thirty Seconds to Mars concert,...

  • Pet Rescue or a Scam?

    By Julia Bendis

    April 4, 2011 | 2:30 pm

    My son and I were spending last Sunday together, just the two of us.  We ran some errands, bought him things for school, and went to lunch.  As we were driving past a Petsmart store, we saw a sign for an organization that adopts out dogs.  Knowing my son, I tried to avert the car so...

  • Quitter-ville

    By Julia Bendis

    March 28, 2011 | 10:13 am

    I am a big quitter, and I come from a long line of quitters.  My whole family is that way, we get excited to start something, but rarely do we actually finish or go through with it.  We always have the best excuses to quit something, not only does it make sense for us to quit...

  • Home buying options according to a Kindergartner!

    By Julia Bendis

    March 24, 2011 | 2:31 pm

    I started on an endless journey to find a new house.  Everyone knows how incredibly daunting and frustrating that can be, but throw in a few plumbing issues in the house that we are currently in, and it makes for a very urgent matter…  For days now, my husband and I have been going...

  • Sister Wives, Polygamy, not too bad of an idea…

    By Julia Bendis

    March 14, 2011 | 9:50 pm

    I have to admit that watching the show “Sister Wives” on TLC made me think about what it would be like to have so-called wives in my family.  To tell the truth, it doesn’t seem like such a terrible idea.  If you think about it, the only bad part are too many children by all those...

  • Valentine’s Day Peep Show!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 14, 2011 | 6:14 pm

    I really don’t like Valentine’s Day!  I hate everything about it, the stupid, corny Hallmark cards, the over-priced flowers, the overcrowded restaurants, the need to out-do each other with pricey gifts, etc…  I am not saying that we shouldn’t show our love for the people in our...

  • Decals on my car - don’t want any!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 10, 2011 | 11:45 am

    Does having a decal of children, dogs and your entire family on your car make you a better Mom?  And more importantly, does NOT having one make me a bad Mom?

    I was pondering that question as I sat in traffic on the 405 freeway the other day.  As usual, I was stuck behind a Minivan...

  • My Interview with the Department of Homeland Security!

    By Julia Bendis

    February 1, 2011 | 10:45 am

    Years ago, I had applied for a position with the Department of Homeland Security.  Why would I apply for a position with the Homeland Security?  Who knows…  Remember my post about my ADD, and pins in my ass?  Well, that’s why.  This was right after 9/11, and they just formed this new...

  • The Joys of Car Dealerships!

    By Julia Bendis

    January 10, 2011 | 12:57 pm

    Being at a car dealership this weekend, to finally get the recalled part on my car fixed, reminded me how much I truly enjoy car dealerships.  Not only do I NOT mind haggling with the salesmen on a price, I look forward to it.  After all, I am my father’s daughter.  That same father...

  • Email OCD and other social media overload!

    By Julia Bendis

    December 20, 2010 | 2:26 pm

    The other day, I started to wonder if anyone else has the same obsessive compulsive behavior when it comes to Facebook, cell phones, Blackberry’s, Blueberry’s, ipods, iphones, ipads and God-knows what else…

    For a long time, I resisted getting a more ‘appropriate’ cell...

  • Car crashes into synagogue’s steps

    A car crashed into the front steps of a Pittsburgh-area synagogue.

    No one was injured in Tuesday night’s crash at Congregation Poale Zedeck Congregation in Squirrel Hill. The car reached the first landing of the stairs leading to the synagogue and did not hit the actual building,...

  • NYC Sticker Shock

    By Joel Chasnoff

    May 22, 2009 | 11:04 am

    One of my favorite things about New York is that the traffic cops don’t just ticket you, they humiliate you.

    The point of this neon-yellow sticker, I suppose, is that pedestrians and fellow drivers will see it, read it, and subsequently hate me. What’s worse is that these stickers can’t be removed - last time I got one on my car, it came off only after a violent rainstorm.

  • Beauty can arise from tragedy

    September 24, 2008 | 11:21 pm

    In mid-July, our 26-year-old son, Micah, lost a lifelong friend, whom he had gone all through school with at Adat Ari El and Milken. On that day, Micah went to a birthday party for his friends Arash Khorsandi and Daniel Levian, two Persian Jews in his intimate circle of about 20...
