Feel Joy in Improving your Character

 For a wise person, there is no greater joy than that of improving his character traits. When someone reaches this level, he can feel joy even when someone insults him - because he has worked himself free of all animosity and resentment.

Take pleasure every time you: - control yourself from getting angry - are patient with others - overcome your desires - react positively instead of with envy about someone else's accomplishments.

Now to blow my own horn a little as we enter into a "two" day hag. Please remember that those friends that can to come to my Chuppa after the Hag on Nisan 25, next Tuesday the 10th at 4:30 in Bloomfield park.

I guess they figure it worked for David versus Goliath!

RARE 1942 - Ultra-clear Color Photos

Amazing quality!!


Back in the mid '70s when I was working at Hellers Camera in Bethesda Md. I had a reference book with a color photo of the battleship Pennsylvania in an advanced base sectional dock, somewhere in the Pacific in about 1944. The quality of the photo made it clear that it was shot with a large format camera, which puzzled me since I did not think Kodachrome (the only modern color film of the time in the US ) was available in sheet films. A guy I worked with was an old Kodak hand (and WWII vet, a radioman in Europe) and told me that they did have sheet Kodachrome, and that there was only one machine to process the film, located in Rochester . The exposed film was sent there for processing.
And note the almost complete lack of basic safety equipment. I saw only one pair of safety glasses, and only a few of the workers were wearing gloves. Working without gloves around sheet metal is an injury waiting to happen.

Notice most of the woman had lip stick and nail polish on. WWII could not have been won without the woman of America stepping into men's shoes to build the equipment needed to defeat the axis powers.

Fascinating! Some of these images are 70 years old and look as fresh as ever. If someone had told any of the subjects in these photos that we'd have such a clear look at them in the year 2012... Boggles my mind. Thought you'd find this interesting!

There is nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9).


America was always there, long before Columbus 'discovered' it. Penicillin killed bacteria long before Fleming discovered it. We could go on to list numerous discoveries which could have benefited mankind long before they came to our attention.

It has been said that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. We can say the same thing about discoveries: they become evident to us when we are ready for them.

Just what constitutes this state of readiness is still a mystery. While technological advances are usually contingent upon earlier progress, many other discoveries were right before our eyes, but we did not see them.

This concept is as true of ideas and concepts in our lives as it is true of scientific discoveries. The truth is out there, but we may fail to see it.

In psychotherapy, a therapist often points out something to a patient numerous times to no avail, until one day, "Eureka!" -- a breakthrough. The patient may then complain, "Doctor, I have been coming to you for almost two years. Why did you never point this out to me before?" At this point, many therapists want to tear out their hair.

Just as patients have resistances to insights in psychotherapy, we may also resist awareness of important ideas and concepts in our lives. If we could sweep out these resistances, we could see ourselves with much more clarity. We must try to keep our minds open, particularly to those ideas we may not be too fond of.

Today I shall ...

try to keep an open mind so that I may discover ideas that can be advantageous to myself and others.

A Blast from the Past-The Black Dragons, Bela Lugosi and Clayton Moore WW2 spy film noir

Wikipedia about "Black Dragons" film with Bela Lugosi and Clayton Moore.
​This is a rather terrible film but there is a pay off at the end, last six minutes.  Clayton Moore you will, of course, remember as the original T.V. Lone Ranger in the fifties.  Bela Lugosi is Bela Lugosi.  Moore plays a sort of Dick Tracey kind of fellow. He is dressed quite nicely in the film. Great cars from the period.   You have to admit that Clayton Moore and Bela Lugosi in the same B minus film is pretty interesting.  marsha​

Walk in modesty before your God (Michah 6:8).

Good things can be accomplished with either a great deal of pomp and ceremony, or with a great deal of quiet and modesty. Some people like to call attention to themselves, while others go about their business without being noticed.

While both may have the same result, there is much to be said in favor of the latter method. Ostentatious performances are likely to arouse envy, and those who begrudge one's good works may attempt to undermine them or to upstage them. Critics seem to come out of the woodwork. Things that are accomplished in a manner that does not provoke attention are more likely to take shape and establish themselves firmly.

The Talmud uses the Ten Commandments as an example. The first Tablets, given at the Revelation at Sinai with thunder, lightning, and much fanfare, did not survive. The second Tablets, given to Moses in virtual silence, remained with the Israelites for centuries and exist to this day in the Ark which was hidden prior to the destruction of the First Temple.

We may feel an urge to make a public declaration of some worthy deed, but when we do it primarily to serve our ego, it is as unwise as it is unnecessary. When we do good deeds, the feeling of achievement that they bring should be reward enough. We should not need the acclaim of others to tell us that what we have done is good. We would do well to leave the noisemaking to the proverbial empty kettles.

Today I shall ...
do whatever I feel is necessary for the good of the community without any fanfare.

See you Sunday after a Two day Hag and Shabbat

Shabbat Shalom and Happy end of Passover
