“I’m Mister White Christmas, I’m Mister Snow.
I’m Mister Icicle. I’m Mister Ten Below.
Friends call me Snow Miser, What ever I touch…
Turns to snow in my clutch.  I’m too much!”

NOTE: Not sure what happened to our ticket stub from December 16, 1986. This was the first run of shows following Jerry Garcia’s ’86 near death (diabetic coma) and recovery.

Eight candles for the number of days that the Temple lantern blazed; the ninth candle, the shamash, is used to light the others.

“Put on your yarmulke
Here comes Hanukkah
So much funukkah
To celebrate Hanukkah
Hanukkah is
The Festival of Lights
Instead of one day of presents
We have eight crazy nights!”
– Adam Sandler’s The Hanukkah Song

Happy Hannukah 2017!

“Chag Sameach!” (Happy Holiday in Hebrew)

Happy Hannukah 2017!

Wishing all my friends and loyal readers
a very happy, safe and celebratory holiday season!

Happy Hannukah 2017! It’s beginning to look a lot like latkes!

How to make Potato Latkes (potato pancakes):
3 potatoes (peeled and grated), small onion (1/2 grated, 1/2 finely chopped). Add 2 eggs (beaten), 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder. Mix ingredients well. Heat cooking oil to med high in large frying pan. Spoon 1 large tablespoon at a time into oil. Cook until crispy golden brown on each side. Drain and pat dry on paper towel and serve warm with applesauce and sour cream.

On the first night of Hannukah we also made a tasty meatloaf and steamed broccoli & carrots with our potato latkes for Hannukah dinner:

 

And then we sat down and ate our lovely meal while we watched the election results from Alabama come in.

And of course don’t forget your Jew attorney!*
(now time for some POLITICAL COMMENTARY!)

 

The Hannukah Miracle of 2017:
RACIST REPUBLICAN BIGOT AND PEDOPHILE ROY MOORE LOST THE ALABAMA SPECIAL ELECTION FOR THE U.S. SENATE to Democrat Doug Jones tonight!

Let’s review where the United States is now since the Russians stole the 2016 election:

 

*Trump endorsed a racist Republican pedophile for the United States Senate
(and the Republican party supported this criminal’s campaign).

Roy Moore’s wife Kayla’s election eve soundbite — “One of our attorneys is a Jew” — became an instant punchline, summing up “good ole boy” Republican Roy Moore’s long history of hate, bigotry, anti-semitism and racism.

171212_pol_kayla_moore_jews_16x9_384

Kayla Moore: “One of our attorneys is a Jew”

“Fake news would tell you that we don’t care for Jews,” she told supporters, reading from notes as Roy Moore stood behind her. “I tell you all of this because I’ve seen it all, so I just want to set the record straight while they’re here.”

She waved to the reporters in the back of the room — many of them from New York and Washington — as the audience laughed, applauded and whistled, and Roy Moore smiled.

“One of our attorneys is a Jew” she said with a smirk and a sarcastic tone.

Thank you Kayla Moore (you ignorant @#$*)

NOTE: Huge thanks to the African-American population of Alabama for coming out and voting to save the United States from a “cracker, ass, cracker” like racist Roy Moore.
