שבוע טוב

A great new week to all! 

Anocheanoche soñé contigosoñé una cosa bonita, soñaba que me besabas....que cosa maravillosa


Flag for Israel
Soy Judío - Aní Yehudí  - אני יהודי 

Things I wanted you to know - 
JGsome thoughts and actions to think aboutand you should

I hold three passports, as I was born in USA, a French passport for my late father being a French citizen, and my most coveted - an Israeli passport because of my Israeli born mother.

Today's workout.....I played 4 hours of tennis with my niece , the Jewish Princess-Tiffany Goldstein.....
and at 14 years old her trophy collection is growing and growing...

I have the deepest affection for intellectual conversations. The ability to just sit and talk. About love, about life, about anything, about everything. To sit under the moon with all the time in the world, the full-speed train that is our lives slowing to a crawl. Bound by no obligations, barred by no human limitations. To speak without regret or fear of consequence. To talk for hours and about what’s really important in life.

And by the way, if you have ever been to KSA,  or The Kingdom as in Saudi Arabia.....any broadcast will start with whomever is King....and it will sound like this: King Abdullah "The Custodian of the Two Holy Mosques" ( Medina and Makkah)


An arranged session at which photographs of individuals are taken usually for publicity.

(verb)- to drop in a photo unexpectedly...to hop in a picture right before it is taken.


Only a handful of models can say they've landed themselves two major magazine covers within one month. Adriana Lima has scored her ninth cover of Vogue with VogueTurkey May 2014 issue (Lima's also on Vogue Spain's May 2014 issue). The Victoria's Secret model is photographed by Koray Birand as she dons a feminine top and skirt by Balmain

Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too.

Is "beato te" ironic at all? For instance, in English, the phrase "lucky you", is sometimes used with a somewhat negative connotation... For instance, if someone is going to Sardegna for the summer and they tell you, and you would like to go but can't. You could reply (Beato te) "Lucky you!", and sort of indicate that your jealous...or if you have a good looking girlfriend ..people  can also say to you...... Beato Te!!!!

In the caribbean (specifically, Dominican Republic)(Puerto Rico) una trigueña - female, is someone identified of three (tri)cultures. Namely,someone of indigenous (carib, quisqueyano or taino indians)african (from the slaves brought over by ships)and Spanish (spain)heritage. It has been used in the latino/caribbean culture as a term of endearment, a compliment but also at times as a descriptive word when neither morena or blanca seem to completely describe the subject.
She's neither black nor white, she's a "trigueña "(wheat color)"...yellow skin like, body with curves, eyes and hair of Spanish girl!!!!

a little take on Japan

There are certain things I will never understand about Japan, like their fascination with the number of creases a person has in their eyelids. Eyes that are 二重 futae, with two eyelid creases resulting in a larger "gaijin-style" look, are said to be preferable to 一重 hitoe, eyes with only one eyelid crease creating narrower "Asian" eyes.

De la chance, parce qu’on adore les macarons. Mal barrés, parce qu’on a découvert quelque chose qu’on aime autant – voire même un peu plus. Ce dessert à la fraise, simplement parfait. C’est une mousse aux fruits avec des vraies fraises! Allez vite vous en chercher un.
Bon, et si vous êtes une inconditionnelle des macarons, le nouveau Marie-Antoinette est sublime

"the French person will recreate distance with silence, the American with conversation..." 

A friend sent me this(so, do not kill the messenger)....
“Why would I marry? It's betting some chick half my net worth that I will love her forever.”

Alejandro Sanz, born Alejandro Sanchez Pizarro on December 18, 1968 in Madrid.
random lyrics of one of my favorite songs:

Alejandro Sanz » Pisando Fuerte
Son tan fuertes tus miradas
elegantes y estudiadas.

Compartiendo las miradas
con las luces apagadas.

Dolly Parton is a country western singer, an actress and a composer....she has written some of the most beautiful songs.....her original version of " I will always love you" is fantastic....not as known as the one performed by the late Whitney Houston.....but in my opinion, a better version....by the way, she wrote the lyrics and the music......

"Bloom where you're planted"  this is from a story in the book of Jeremiah about the JEWS, including Queen Esther's family, thriving in exile. Esther is one of my favorite characters, not only is she the strongest woman in the scripture, but her story of saving the JEWS from annihilation by the Persians.

By the way, I love the sound of the sad violin in Yiddish and Hebrew songs..it inspires me, it makes me feel the sadness of the Jewish people that suffered so much during our long history!!!!!

Schlissel Challah
 It has become a tradition to bake “schlissel” (“key” in Yiddish) shaped challah or bake your key in your challah on the Shabbat after Pesach.
This symbolizes the key to livelihood which is in the hands of G-d, and our prayers to Him when the gates of heaven come to a close. 

We Shall Never Forget!
Tonight is Yom Hashoah, the night when we remember the 6 million Jews murdered in the Holocaust and the attempted annihilation of our nation. They tried to bury our entire people and today we mourn the 6 million that were murdered, and their descendants who because of the Nazis, yemach shemam, were never born.
We need to remember the atrocities of the Holocaust and the silence of the world that stood by and watched as millions were sent to their deaths. We need to remember and remind the world, so that this may never happen again.
May G-d  bless the souls of his martyrs, the souls of the people who were killed just because they were Jewish
