Coolest Niece Ever

My niece is hiking the PCT. I'm in awe.

Wish I could remember how to add blog list to the scroll on the side of this page but I don't remember how.


Since I didn't go to the Science March, I was able instead to attend the first Tiferet bat mitzvah! It was a wonderful event. A special tweak was that at the last minute they needed a stand-in to bring out the Torah. I've done it so many times I was able to without even feeling nervous!

Action #25: Science March... sort of

I was going to go to the Science March, bags packed and everything. Then I realized I would have to leave work earlier than originally planned for a fighting chance to arrive before Shabbat started. Unfortunately, I had to bag out, but U went instead.

Action #24: Sent money

I'm told this is a cause that will never win, but I won't give up. Sent money to Everytown USA.

Changed theme

As you can see, I changed my blog theme. I'm not sure this one fits perfectly with my site, but I just love it. What do you think? Please leave comments.

Action #22: Libaries

Not giving up yet, even though I've been absent.

Emailed to support libraries.

Action #21: Waging Peace

Remember when I said I was getting involved with an interfaith group? Well, today I hosted the first meeting for one of the new chapters in my county of Sisterhood Salaam Shalom. I'm currently a co-leader. Oh yeah!

Action #20: Thank you to McCain

I was going to do this anyway. Right now Republicans are entirely in power, so there is not much to be gained by reaching out to Democrats. Rather, we need rogue Republicans who can stand for a sane version of the Republican party. So U and I discussed just yesterday that my next action was going to be to thank him, but after the speech he gave last night, I wrote him a thank you note even before starting my morning yoga. You please do it too.

Action #19: Stop Gorusch

Sent some money to People For The American Way to counter pro-Gorusch ads.


Action #18: More on Day Without Immigrants

So then I emailed an administrator who I also suspect is on a different political side than me. I suggested the team deserved recognition for having come in on Day Without Immigrants. I cc'd someone else on the team who might be able to help with any recognition that is given to them (and who I know would have appreciated the email.) I did not hear back. It could be that an announcement was made later that day and I just didn't hear it, or it could be my comment was just ignored in which case the person I wrote to can leave it to his conscience to process.
