I’ve noticed something recently. There are a lot, and I mean, a lot, of selfies on Instagram. I know it’s always been that way, but just lately it’s really stood out to me. And I get it, it’s a photo-based platform and sometimes you want to say something and just don’t have a pic, and… Continue reading To Selfie, Or Not To Selfie
I got up this morning when my alarm went off (okay, I hit snooze once, which, for me, is essentially the same getting up immediately) and for the first time in what feels like years, but is actually just a couple weeks, I was awake while the rest off the house was quiet. Sipping my… Continue reading What Is The Point Of Social Media?
I have spent more of my life than I would like to admit sitting in front of a screen.

Forty-five minutes or two hours later, the dishes are still not done, the toys are still strewn around the house, the menu is still unplanned.… Continue reading The Internet is Probably Ruining Your Life
We had a trip to Memphis (home of a certain Bubby) planned for over a month. Tickets had been purchased. Lists had been made. Supplies had been obtained. The date of said trip? Monday the 29th, the day Hurricane Sandy came ashore to the east coast. We live on the east coast. Flashback to the… Continue reading Escaping Hurricane Sandy
Unfortunately, Ayala Pamela bas Leah (Pamela Nagy Weisfeld) passed away today (August 20th). We can still do good deeds as a merit for her soul. May her family be comforted, and may we only share in simchas. Some upsetting news came down through the Facebook grapevine yesterday: Pamela was at Neve at the same time… Continue reading Good Deeds for Recovery from Illness
