The first post says it all Shalom, This is the home of the Pittsfield Jew. Sure its neat to read about Jews in Brooklyn who are very observant but how about a not so observant Jew who lives in the Mid West?

Jonny has been feeling sick.

Today at work he was cleaning the database in VASE. Also at work there was no water in Hotel Hilton.

Right now he is listening to some labor music. Wendell and Kristina went to a museum over the weekend. On Sunday Jonny and Jesse called them. They said they bought this labor music and wanted to send it to Jonny. So using his expertise he said you had to send only 3 songs at a time.

Angelina bought tickets to the Chinese dinner at the temple.

Jonny just got back from seeing some of his peeps in the department. They were all too busy with the sugar cookie party. So Jonny took a cookie and went back to the Hotel Hilton. The water is on again. So he brushed and flossed and the irrigated his nose.

Jonny is on page 152 of Patriot Games. He needs to spend more time reading his book and less time playing on the internet. Playing on the internet is kinda like reading, nawh not really.

Lorraine through a fit over the weekend. Angelina and Alberta went shopping.She was babysitting and they left her behind. She is the real beauty queen and felt very slighted.

Jesses and Jonny got haircuts yesterday. Lorraine got bang trim just because.

Last night he barely ate dinner since he was so sick.

Old diary post here. This is for July 16, 1994, even though the link looks like it says 2010. Another glitch in the blogger.

Jonny had a Trader Joe Winter Fest beer last night. Now he feels a little hung over from it.

Jonny is on page 94 of Patriot Games.

This afternoon he has a meeting at the ESNC. In you forgot that stands for extended stay northern california. It sucks because it is cold out. So he has to wait for a shuttle bus.

Today's lunch is part two of the three part turkey sandwich trilogy.

Last night Jonny helped Angelina loosen up her door. They watched Cold Case to celebrate this accomplishment.

This week's parsha is Vayechi.

How can Jonny get more motivation to work at work? He took a nap and is ready for another one. He doesn't seem to have the stamina he once had.

Today Jonny listened to the parsha vayigash.

Over the weekend Jonny made an awesome bagel sandwich and then he made the same one for his daughter Alberta.

The family has been pretty negligent in lighting candles. They made latkes last night but didn't light them. Also on Sunday Jonny talked to his father. Alberta talked too. Lorraine skipped Sunday school. Jonny did cleaning most of the weekend, using his new hand held steam cleaner. He has been having a good time with linux on the dell laptop.

Jonny is on page 32 of Patriot Games. He read The Hunt For Red October and it was a decent book.

Only when the books are done

Is it true that Jonny only posts when he finishes a book? Jonny finished a book. He finished reading Night Judgement at Sinos by Jack Higgins. He thought it was a good read. The 289 page book was set in the sea near Greece and Turkey during the 1960's. But since the book was written in the 1970's the author tried to make it seem it was modern times.

Over the weekend before Thanksgiving, Jonny watched a movie. He saw a movie based on a Hemingway book by the same title. The 83 minute movie was called A Farewell to Arms. This is from Jonny's DVD collection. He brought it on the trip.

Right now Jonny is sleeping listening for the second time this week to Mikietz. The Hebrew word for prison is bora. At one point Yosef interrupts paro. This is because he feels he must give G-d credit for the dream interpretation. In the parsha Yosef says you will remember me. His mistake was to not trust in Hashem. It was a small deber. Apparently deber is another word for mistake?
