June Already?

It's been awhile, so I thought I'd say "hello" and bring you up to date. Blogger isn't letting me upload photos, which is just as well because I don't have much to show you.

I've been making some progress on Meital's scrapbook. I'm just about done with her third grade year (2005-2006). I'm nearly to the toe decreases on Liat's second sock. And I started a wool hat for myself for next winter. I know, the timing is weird but I thought of it the other day and decided "why not get it done?"

I spent a few hours today trying to do some genealogy research, but only managed to learn one new (to me) fact, the wedding date of one of my grandfather's sisters.

The altered Barbie got some sand and glitter added to her yesterday, but today when I went to check on the ribbon I'd left in a puddle of ink, hoping it would be dyed a lovely bilious green, I saw that it was only an insipid yellow. I've added more green ink and am hoping for the best. Any guesses where I am going with this theme?

Tonight, Liat and her friends Eden and Kfir were further honored, this time by the mayor of our city. In addition, a student from a nearby school, who won the first place prize in the contest, was there. Each student received a framed certificate.

And that's about all I can think of to tell you. Hopefully the glitch with Blogger (I have also been having problems with links located on Yahoo pages, very odd...) will be fixed soon and that I will actually have something to show you.

You didn't show an e-mail address in your comment on my blog posting about the Gerer Hasidim. So this is the only way I can respond to your query.
The name Paltiel is unfamiliar to me. I suggest that you contact the Gerer Hasidic HQ for information about ancestors. The Gerer Rebbe (his surname is Alter)lives in Israel (I don't know where). I assume that like the heads of other Hasidic sects he has a secretariat of some kind. Many years ago, on a visit to Israel, I found a Gerer Hasidic organization listing in the Jerusalem phone book. I called to find the exact location of the cemetery in which my grandfather is buried. They gave me the precise location in the HaHarmanuchat (sp?)cemetery in Jerusalem--grave number, plot number, etc.
