This all started with an innocent wondering about the old Yiddish language.  It has such funny-sounding words and expressions, with lots of CHKH and UTZ sounds, and words like Shmoe, Tchachkeh, Shmutz, and Shlemiel.  Great stuff.

Anyway, what started years ago as a private email to a few friends with an occasional Yiddish word and a corresponding, funny sentence has now blossomed to include musings, ideas, and comments on the quirkiness of life.  Over time, the Word of the Day emails became more musings, less Yiddish.  But they all still include a funny Yiddish word and sentence.

You may wonder why there is little information about me.  After all, without any of this kind of detail, the content and the WoD is likely a lot less engaging or interesting.  I understand this trade-off.  Nonetheless, I figure I’ll post just the content, for now.

These posts will be wide-ranging — sometimes thought-provoking, sometimes kooky, hopefully entertaining.  I hope you like them.
