The Eco-Whatsium?

Today, Chana, PB, Ilana and I had a lovely time visiting the Ecotarium (

I loved it when PB said, "We're going to the EGO-Tarium"!

Later, she called it the "EGO-Quarium", which was definitely my favorite name for it!

Ilana and Aunt Sunny

A few weeks ago, during our "big summer vacation" (48 hours staying at my cousin's house on Long Island [which is in a very Jewish area and has fab shopping and restaurants, so it really is like a vacation for us), we visited with Sam's Aunt Sunny and Uncle Sydney, who recently celebrated their 60th wedding anniversary (!).

Aunt Sunny to Ilana: "You're just adorable!"
Ilana stamps her little foot, scowls and says, "I *not* DORA!"

Sam and I had a good laugh, as did Aunt Sunny, once we explained Dora the Explorer :)

Batsheva the Fab Typist!

She just typed 59 WPM with 100% accuracy! Wow. All I can say is that "Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing" has been well worth the $. Go, Bathseva, go! Type, Batsheva, type!

The nose knows

The dr. called w. the biopsy results of my nose, and, unfortunately, one of the two places is basal cell cancer (the "good" kind to get, if you have to have anything). He said it seemed "fairly superficial", but that I will need to see a MOHS surgeon. MOHS is what they did the first time I had the skin cancer on my nose--they take small amounts away and keep biopsying the tissue while you wait and do it until the results are clear. I am hoping this will really be a non-major thing, unlike last time where I emerged with a rather large part of my nose missing.....
