It was a most wonderful evening seeing and hearing Booker T Jones and his band which also featured his son Ted. Booker T read from his recently published book and talked about his life as well as playing wonderful music. He is a most interesting man and a wonderful musician. I was not aware of his musical studies at Indiana University early in his career with the MG's.
I've increasingly noticed young women out in the unseasonably cold weather in jeans with huge holes fashionably in them. I can understand that it is trendy to dress this way. I don't fully understand, though, why one would wear such attire in weather with a wind chill of around 10 degrees. I asked one such young woman, standing on the elevated train platform. She confirmed to me that she was cold dressed as she was. I then asked her my question. She told me that she preferred these jeans over her other "thin jeans". I prefer to be warm!
I very much value all the wonderful time I have with my delightful granddaughter! I will always regret that I didn't have as deep a connection with my son as he grew beyond the early times such as this.
I'm very prejudiced, but she is very cute! She is also charming!

Fida Jiryis is one who remains an outsider wherever she lives and whatever she does. She is fluent in Hebrew, English and Arabic. She has seen so much! She has learned so much! It goes well beyond “facts” - and does include a lot that is factual. What is so dif
