Happy Chanukah!

Always nice to celebrate light in the middle of darkness. Chanukah is a reminder that a tiny Jewish flame could still burn even when forces wanted to extinguish us.

Happy חנוכה (Chanukah) to all from the Holy Land! It's funny...I'm staying with a friend right now, and right after we lit the menorah, we had a power failure. I looked at his menorah and said "I don't think those candles will last 8 days). Power was restored within an hour or so.


PS - I think the forum's spell check spaks Hebrew. It didn't pick up the Hebrew characters as a misspelled word  .

Happy Chanukah to all.

Cadet, was your problem localized or bigger than that? I'll be in town there all next week for a technical conference; just wondering what to expect, lol.

Bought my wife "Mr. Popper's Penguins" on blu-ray and a blu-ray player for Hannukah. I bought it today at Target, and the cashier was Orthodox (he was wearing a yarmulke)! I went right up to him, handed him the merchandise, and said, "happy Hanukkah"  

He was rather pleased. I said that I noticed he was wearing a yarmulke, and he said that he was Orthodox and wishes he could be in Israel for the holliday season.

Anyway, yeah. Happy Hannukah!
