AMO AMAS AMAT...OR HOW TO BECOME A LATIN LOVER

I don't know about you, but when I was in high school we studied Latin. Lovely language btw and like solving a difficult puzzle or algebra problem, when you finally got it translated the feeling of joy was amazing.

I love language. Nu, so why are you suprised...does a fat person love food? Does an extrovert need words? Of course we do!!!

So you can imagine my surprise the other day when I got the following email from my friend Cecil:

The Centers for Disease Control has issued a warning about a new virulent strain of Sexually Transmitted Disease. This disease is contracted through dangerous and high-risk behaviour. The disease is called GONORRHEA LECTIM .

It seems that this highly contagious disease started in the States and now it is spreading to Israel and Europe. OY.

After ten days at Bubbie Channah's watching Fox news 24/7 I almost caught it myself!

So, I quickly washed my hands with soap, turned off the television and picked up a book instead. VENI , VIDI, VICI :)

Have a great day...stay safe...and thanks for dropping in.

Nope. Ain't gonna re-elect him.

Can't.

I shudder to think who the next guy will be.

Or girl.

Friends of Israel are thin on the ground in the swamps of Washington.

Why concern your lil' ol' self with a warning of such magnitude ?

Make changes in your immediate world instead. Embrace the following:

SEMPER UBI SUB UBI .

You picked the right relative ! Did you happen to know that, when everyone around her was wearing cotton guttkahs that came down to the knees, Aunt Fanny a.h. always wore thongs ? And saucy garter belts ? The vixen. A woman before her times.
