Come in! Come in!

"If you are a dreamer, come in. If you are a dreamer, a wisher, a liar, a Hope-er, a Pray-er, a Magic Bean buyer; if you're a pretender, come sit by my fire. For we have some flax-golden tales to spin. Come in! Come in!" -- Shel Silverstein

Happy Hanukkah!


My old and brand new favorite Hanukkah's songs! A little gift for my Jewish friends who begin to light the Menorrah this evening.

Adam Sandler still totally rocks!

Or, as he would say, "Not too shabby."

This is the newest version of the Dreidel Song from Erran Baron Cohen (Sacha's brother). It's from 'Songs in the Key of Hanukkah'.

It's been years between the two songs. This should make a lot of people - Jewish or not - very, very happy.

It's got a good beat and you can dance to it. I'll give it a 95, Dave.

So, call your Aunt Veronica and have a Happy Hanukkah!

(Sorry for the Christian ads at the bottom of the screen. How annoying is that?)

I'm rather fond of that version of "Dreidel", myself, after hearing it on Fran's blog. There are a lot of places one can go with the Dreidel song. I once made my Jewish medical students howl with laughter one time after class by telling them, "You know, now that you're in Kirksville, I think you have to sing it like THIS..." and launched into my "If Hank Williams sang it, here is how it would go," version.

(I can imitate Elvis singing it, too...)

Two great songs that belong in one post!

Happy Hanukkah!!

I'd love to hear your imitation of Hank and/or Elvis. I do a mean Bob Dylan.

Hey, Fran, hope your new job isn't running you ragged. Take care.

Hi, I'm wondering why he chose the word "Jesus" (in its Hebrew form) as the graffiti, is he a Jew for Jesus Jew? Do you know?

I would seriously doubt it. I think it is what it is: Graffiti. I'm sure it's irreverent, but then again, not as much as the Christian ads that pop up all the time.
