Focus On The Positive

If a person consistently talks about the faults of others, he will usually overlook even the most obvious positive attributes of those same people.

Today, think of someone that you often degrade, and try focusing on one positive quality of that person. Realize, as G-d does, that every human being has positive and negative traits. Focus on the positive. Of course if Jackie Mason (below) did it, he wouldn't have an act...don't be phoney,  love each other.

Masai- Precious Journeys (from last week's torah section)


As is known, the Torah lists a total of 42 places that the children of Israel traveled through, from their leaving Egypt to their last place they encamped before entering the land of Israel.

The Ramban writes that it was G-d whom instructed Moshe and commanded him to write down all these places, because there are great secrets that are contained in these 42 journeys.

The famous commentary the Magen Avrahom writes in the name of the commentary of the Tzor HaMor, that because these 42 journeys correlate directly to as well as hint to the holy 42 letter name of G-d (known as the prayer of the Ana Bacho'ach), the Torah reading should not be interrupted during the reading of these places.

The secret of this special prayer is the unification of the upper and lower world, male and female, Z"A and N"ok. It is through this absolute unification that the children of Israel are betrothed to G-d forever. Now understand that it is not just only on the collective level but also on the personal individual level too!

The Lubavitcher Rebbe wrote that every Jewish person from the beginning of  life to the end, will go through 42 stages or levels of development paralleling these original 42 journeys of the children of Israel.


Loving your fellow video in this period before Tish a Bov

Changing world and the Seniors!

Some interesting examples: Those of you in 'our' age group will really
appreciate this. The rest of you, will soon be there. (not me someone else sent this- I don't go to McDonald's.


Recently, when I went to a McDonald's I saw on the menu that you could
have an order of 6, 9, or 12 chicken nuggets. I asked for a half-dozen.
'We do not have a half-dozen nuggets,' said the teenager at the counter.
'You do not?' I replied. 'We only have six, nine or twelve.' was the reply.
'So I can't order a half-dozen nuggets, but I can order six?' 'That is right.'
I shook my head and ordered six. Unbelievable but sadly true, must have
been the same one, I asked for sweetener and she said they did not have
any, only Splenda and sugar.

I was checking out at the local Aldi Supermarket, with just a few items &
the lady behind me put her things on the belt close to mine. I picked up
one of those 'dividers' that they keep by the cash register and placed it
between our things so they wouldn't get mixed.

After the girl had scanned all of my items, she picked up the 'divider,'
looking all over for the bar code so she could scan it.

Not finding the bar code, she said to me. 'Do you know how much this is?'
I said to her 'I have changed my mind. I do not think I will buy that today.'
She said 'OK,' & I paid her for the things & left. She had no clue to what had
just happened. But the lady behind me had a big smirk on her face as I left.

A woman at work was seen putting a credit card into her Computer disc.,
drive and pulling it out very quickly. When I inquired as to what she was
doing, she said she was shopping on the Internet & they kept asking for a
credit card number, so she was using the ATM 'thingy.' Keep shuddering!

I recently saw a distraught young lady weeping beside her car. 'Do you
need some help?' I asked. She replied. 'I knew I should have replaced the
battery to this remote door opener. Now I can not get into my car.' 'Do
you think they,' pointing to a distant convenience store, 'would have a
battery to fit this?' 'Hmmm, I do not know. Do you have an alarm, too?' I
asked. 'No, just this remote thingy.' she answered, handing it and the car
keys to me. When I took the keys and manually unlocked the door, I said
to her, 'Why don't you drive over there & check about the batteries. It is
a long walk....' PLEASE just lie down before you hurt yourself!

Some years ago we had a work experience lass who was none too swift.
One day she was typing & turned to a secretary & said, 'I am almost out of
typing paper. What do I do?' 'Just use paper from the photocopier,' the
secretary told her. With that, the lass took her last remaining blank piece
of paper, put it on the photocopier & proceeded to make five blank copies.

A mother calls 911 very worried asking the dispatcher if she needs to take
her son to emergency, as he had eaten ants. The dispatcher tells her to
give him some Benadryl & he should be fine. The mother says, 'I just gave
him some ant killer.' Dispatcher: 'Rush him in to emergency right now!'
Life is tough. It is even tougher if you are stupid!
And finally, some perks of being over 60 & heading towards 70 or 80 or so!

01. Kidnappers are not very interested in you.
02. In a hostage situation you are likely to be released first.
03  No one expects you to run anywhere.
04. People call at 9:00 pm and ask. "Did I wake you?"
05. People no longer view you as a hypochondriac.
06. There is nothing left to learn the hard way.
07. Things you buy now would not wear out.
08. You can eat supper at 5:00 pm.
09. You can live without sex, but not your glasses.
10. You get into heated arguments about pension plans.
11. You no longer think of speed limits as a challenge.
12. You quit trying to hold your stomach in, no matter who walks into the room.
13. You sing along with elevator music.
14 Your eyes won't get much worse.
15. Your investment in health insurance is finally beginning to pay off.
16. Your joints are more accurate meteorologists than the national weather service.
17. Your secrets are safe with your friends because they can not remember them either.
18. Your supply of brain cells is finally down to a manageable size.
19. You can not remember, who sent you this list.
20. And you notice these are all in big print, for your convenience.

Forward this to everyone you can remember right now! And remember never,
under any circumstances, take a sleeping pill and a laxative on the same night.

Ciao.......  Sal
Happiness keeps you Sweet,
Trials keep you Strong,
Sorrows keep you Human,
Failures keep you Humble,
Success keeps you Glowing,
But ... Only Friends . . . .
Keep You Going!

The tiny beating heart grown from STEM CELLS

The new hearts will allow new drugs to be tested, and give researchers a new insight into how the heart develops. The tiny heart even has a microchamber, and can 'beat' like a full sized heart.
