MIKE IN ISRAEL

Summer Is a great time for vacations. So I am going to be in Israel for the month of July. I will not post or comment back for the month, but when I come back I will hopefully have a lot more for everyone to enjoy. I will most probably play Jewish Geography more than I usually do since I am going to be in Israel. The food will be great, can't wait for the rain free warm sunny weather. I do plan on climbing Masada which I hear they redid. I also will get to witness the Chareidim throwing rocks at cars on Shabbos.

The only part I hate is the plane ride. Well not the whole ride but the taking off part. I seriously do not like it. When I take off, I grab both arm rests and hold firm. My hand is sweating from all pressure I cause myself. Once were in the air I am okay unless we are going through turbulence. I am not one of those people that get up all the time and constantly annoy the person next to them by doing this. Nor am I the person who fears that a bird will fly into the engine. In fact I feel safer on a plane than I do in a car. (once the plane is in the air).

Getting back to the point. I will not be visiting this site in July unless a rare occasion pops up. You could visit and go over old stuff. See you all in late July. SHALOM.

P.S. I will post about shul politics after I come back.

Enjoy your trip!

About the Jewish Geography thing, in the secular world, its called networking, and its a major bonus for them. There's a quote: "It's not WHAT you know, but WHO you know"

I went on a plane once to Israel a few years ago, and it was my first time, and strangely I did not feel scared at all at any point. Take off on a helicopter is another story, now that was scary, but well worth it.

Hope you have a great trip, and I will miss your comments on my blog! And I do like Jewish geography, meeting random people and then realizing you know the same person. Lots of fun. And taking off in a plane is actually my favorite part.

I will still try to comment on your blog but I may miss some.
Lucky for me I have a connection here so I am on. And this time around on the plane the takeoff was okay. I now have tons of new posts and one on Israeli Driving. Lihtraot.
