Shabbat Shalom from Tel Aviv
August 22, 2014
Dear family and friends,
As you read this week’s email (that I wrote two weeks ago), we are currently in Israel.  I assume (and hope) the world is still turning on its axis yet I’m sure it is also still in turmoil.  We spent 3 days in Iceland to view the wonders of nature and photos of proof will be included in next week’s email.  Until then, here are four interesting and interactive websites I’ve been saving for this writing hiatus.
10 Commandments
This first article is increasingly relevant as social media continues to invade (and sometimes eclipse) our lives.  These 10 Commandments of Social Media hit a home run as each one speaks to the importance of integrity with our internet interactions.  As the original 10 Commandments guide our lives I hope to these 10 bring light to our Social Media interplay.
50 States
This next site is an amazing indicator of our local dialect.  It was originally posted last year on the NYTimes website and got some many hits I think the site crashed.  It was extremely accurate when I took the test:

Potato – Potahto

20 Hits
As always, music is a staple and motivator in my life and the 60s was my childhood (age 0-9).  So, here is a website that combines the music of my childhood by selecting the best Summer hits of the 60s. Highlights are #4 rare footage of Little Stevie, #6 Hot Fun in the Summer, #7 Help, #12 very odd, #17 Archie, Betty, Veronica and gang, #19 for Jimmy K’s wife. Enjoy:
Mod 1960s
37 (mind-blowing) Facts
This last interactive website can keep you busy for hours especially if you love the Great Lakes of Michigan. You will find crazy amazing facts about these tremendous bodies of water.
Did you know an acronym for the Great Lakes is HOMES?
