What's on the Menu at the Blogeteria

Blogroll Me!

Every now and again, I like to remind my MANY or few readers about some of the blogs I check out rather regularly. Of course, these blogs reflect my personal taste, but may I at least interest you in checking out what's on at the blogeteria?

For starters, every day (except Shabbos and Yom Tov) I check out A Simple Jew Doing so gives me a boost of Jewish insight, never complicated, just simple and understandable. Doesn't hurt when some personal children's antics are described, as well.

I check out "Live...from Israel, it's David Bogner's Treppenwitz This witty and wise fellow's blog dabbles in Israeli lifestyle/Israeli politics/Israeli-American families...and Israeli-American DOGS.

I seek out Milwaukee-based rock'n'roll doctor, aka PsychoToddler I like reading his remedies for life and for his children's nasty habits. The good doctor has managed to attract a couple of spinoffs. Check out Mrs. Balabusta, -- and another kindred and witty POV in Laya's Place,

I've visited with newfound friends over in California at some coffeehouse -- the donuts are stale, the coffee never arrives hot, but the posts truly make up for it. Send the restaurant reviewers over to Kerckhoff Coffeehouse at

I get a great kick out of reading Yettabettaboo. She's very funny, even if she doesn't mean to be, but her straightforwardness and at times her insecurity (not to mention a great husband) remind me of me. She is very entertaining. Check her out

Life-of-Rubin reminds me of someone who is throwing darts one after another to hit his target. So often does he get a bulls-eye. After all, he is posting constantly throughout each day, picking and choosing his topics rather well, even if people don't comment. I comment from a distance!

Mirty Gets Married the journal of a fairly recently married woman who's become a stepmom to two teens and has taken a winding life's journey in religious observance.

I also sample heavily from these most creative writers who grab my reading attention and very often tug hard at my heartstrings.
Five Years Later
Seraphic Secret
NY's Funniest Rabbi
Ink as Rain
News, Views and Shmooze
A Window into Ours
and Jack's Shack

Of course, I snack on other menu items throughout the day, but these are most often my main courses. I have since discovered some great junk food items at the blogeteria and hope to give you that list at some future time.

In the meantime, happy eating, and hope you digest everything real well. (if not, the antacids are on the top shelf of the master bathroom medicine cabinet)

Shall We Try This Again...?

Blogroll Me!

Thank you for those who posted "additions" to the excerpt taken from a published book. Here is another excerpt. But this time, don't add to it -- except for the first person who starts this off. Check the comments section and continue the story from the preceeding person's comment/addition.

Here is the excerpt:

I stop short in the doorway to my cube. A white envelope is propped on my keyboard. My name is scrawled on it in black Sharpie. My hands are shaking as I tear the envelope open.
