I liked Rabbi Solomon's comments about striving to be better, I alway's think to myself during Yom Kipper, this year I want to be a better daughter,wife and Jew. I try and I am. Shana Tova. Shirlee

I always find your "few minutes to ponder" very interesing and informative. I have to say that I didnt partically like where you said, "Learning Hebrew this year, Can I learn it better of faster?" Its the first year they're learning it. Imagine where people were a year ago and how far they came. Atleast changes are being made to become a better person and more spiritual. Its a whole new language its going to take time to learn and master, at least people are trying with the baby steps... Is faster really better? Bracha v'Hatzlacha for the coming year! Keep Talking, and will keep listening.

Thank you

Your positive message has added a smile to my tears of shame and sorrow. Thank you for making me feel less terrible about my inadequate self. Yes, there is a lot that's right and that I can definitely work on improving. Thank you again.

I stopped using ketchup and eating french fries a long time ago.

Both are just plain fattening, and people are better off eating fewer condiments and carbohydrates altogether. Maybe Heinz should keep the hard-to-open packets, as well as the old bottles that made it hard to get the ketchup out as well. Maybe we'd all be less obese and healthier to boot!

Yashar koach, also, I thought the you were going to note that even after 40 years (or did you say30) that you can still change, that Hashem is always waiting, always there for us. Also Hashem gave us the right tools to be a better person, a growing Torah Jew. Thanks so much for your shmoozes, I get so much from them, I know that when I'm short on time, I can count on you for great info and inspiration in just a minute or two.
