Shavuos has a very special personal meaning for me. Four years ago, when I lost my father, May His Soul Rest in Peace, I started this blog in order to share with you, Beautiful People, my way of celebrating my father’s birthday. He was born on Shavuos, and for twenty years, after my mother’s passing, May Her Soul Rest in Peace, I would make a birthday party for him by cooking and baking all his favorite Shavuos dairy dishes.

      1. Thank you very much, Dolly! Same to you and yours as well. Since I have just sent someone the current picture of our famous innovation in town. Here for you too. For the first time, our village has a freely accessible vending machine. Here is a picture from Friday: https://i.postimg.cc/W1fCzGSk/warenautomat.jpg
        Now you can roughly imagine what level of modernity we are / should be here. Lol xx

      10. You think your trees and plants will appreciate loud music? My brother claims that his houseplants flourish because he plays Mozart to them.

    1. Amen!
      Thank you for a sweet comment, my favorite purple person, and I apologize for being out of touch. My technology is still sporadic, and the final word is that I need a new, more powerful computer (should I put him on steroids?) which we cannot afford on the spot like this. So for now my son has lent me his laptop which I use for work, but anything other than work is secondary.
      Love you,
      D

      2. Nope, they don’t work, and I have to get a new laptop, and we are not ready for this expense right now. I am extremely grateful to my son, but even though he calls it “indefinite,” I consider the use of his computer temporary.
