And pigs can fly!!! We have a new President. And thanks to our Prime Minister, who himself got the job because of a fluke, Shimon Peres is now President Peres.

I can't believe it. I don't like the man. I don't trust the man. For a lot of reasons. A whole big fat lot of reasons.

But, I must admit, that I was moved by his speech. He even had me teary-eyed at the end when he blessed our soldiers and the State of Israel. He did. But then, I'm a sucker for anything that has to do with this country.

As the shofars sounded, and the trumpets blared and we did our version of Hail to the Chief, I had to take a deep breth and pray that Mr. President doesn't do us any more damage. Lord knows, he's done enough already.

But, let's give the guy a chance. For some reason the man is the world's darling...the Elder Statesman...the peacemaker. I won't go into that right now.

Interesting, however, that while he was busy reminding us of our heroic leaders, Ben Gurion, Itzhak Rabin, Arik Sharon...he left out Golda and Begin. Well, there goes the President of all the people, I guess.

We live in interesting times. Once again I have to say that I have learned that 'boring is better.'

Good luck, Mr. President. Good luck Israel. Sigh.

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

Many of us here in the U.S. keep our eye on Israel because you truly are God's timepiece.
