Life is like a patch-work. The next few days, we are going to share a little of the patches that make up Israel. Disconnected pieces, but put together they are our life here. Consider the joy at noticing and experiencing this for your self. Consider making the decision to come to Israel and become a Master Quilt Maker for life.

~~There is a unique pleasure in learning Hebrew. In having the song of the language around you. At seeing it printed everywhere and being able to read it. Being a beginner, I don't always understand what I read... but I can read it none-the-less. English is taking more and more of a place in the public eye. The sign to the right obviously got my attention. The interesting thing with this sign... the English is NOT the translation for what is written in Hebrew. ("private parking, car inside") The 2 Spies are wondering if only those that know English are likely to ignore the sign and park here?? ~~
~~Strolling past the memorial bench, laughing at the parking sign, I came around the corner to a lovely little cafe'. Israel is FULL of lovely little cafes each trying to be unique to draw you in. This cafe (don't remember the name) truly got my attention. On a table outside the front window was a table with milk crates full of old 33rpm records. Those are round plastic discs that are placed on a machine, called a record player. An arm with a needle is lowered onto the record and the music is then heard through the speakers. (That definition may not be needed but just in case...)
I asked the waiter if we were allowed to listen to them. Here you see him putting on my choice to play. I enjoyed a tasty lunch while listening to a bit of 'The Swingle Singers'.~~

~~ Last 'Bit & Piece' for today. An all too common site and one that we hope will disappear one day. Nuff said~~
