Passing bricks and fumbling in the dark–

Posted on Sep 28, 2008 at 1:57 pm

Is what speaking to people feels like. I believe I was considered at least semi-intelligent in my previous life. Now I feel like a mentally challenged four year old at best.

I think it is interesting that the terrorist was a 19 year old who owned a BMW

As we plan to return our rental car tomorrow, the staircase pathways through this hilly city will become very important. My girls are adjusting very well; each one has had friends over for playdates and even my middle daughter, who is normally terrified of […]

So we are starting to settle in, enjoying the benefits of living in the holy land learning about some of the challenges. A small list of some of the things I have learned: 1) Don’t try to find your way around town by car in the dark in a city which you have only known for […]
