My diary

Once upon a time, this blog hosted some interesting discussions.  (See here for an example.)  But that was then and this is now.  I was quite taken aback when I published a post announcing that our son had finally earned his PhD and got exactly one response.  Heck, another blogger got more responses than that upon announcing the adoption of a puppy.  A puppy trounces a PhD??  Are you serious??

I suppose that I've exhausted a good many of my topics of interest after blogging for over a decade.  Then, too, as my son has ever so, um, "kindly" pointed out, no one is interested in reading about my health challenges.  At this point, I have so few commenters that I'm basically blogging because I like to hear, er, see myself talk.  :)

Sorry I've become so boring.  Thanks to my 2 1/2 readers for your patience.  We now return you to our not-so-regularly-scheduled blog.  :)

Still reading, but in blog-reader, so now it is more effort to comment- also, baby sleeping on one arm when I'm on the computer- but still reading. A belated Mazal tov to your son!

Maya, thanks for reading, and especially for commenting with baby on one arm! And thanks for the mazal tov, which our son worked hard to earn.

your blog used to be interesting. you had interesting discussions at which you pushed the Conservative movement on issues, and raised legitimate issues about orthodoxy. Lately, your religion posts are rants or rehashes (often containing incorrect information) or deal with your health or other things. I only keep coming back to see if you reverted back to the more interesting, thought provoking stuff rather than your "woe is me" approach. It's your blog, you can do what you want, but don't expect discussion when there's nothing to discuss.

Sorry about the "woe is me" stuff--I'm workin' on it.

I have, indeed, been remiss in not questioning the United Synagogue of Conservative Judaism's and the (Conservative) Jewish Theological Seminary's plans to sell much of their real estate. Where are they going to go? Also, I must admit that I see the selling of property that was, presumably, donated to them so that they wouldn't have to rent as a bit of an insult to the donors.

"Nothing to discuss"?! Our son finally received his PhD after almost 9 years in grad school, and you consider that "nothing to discuss"?!

Or maybe you'll find this post more interesting and thought-provoking..
