Rabbi Daniel Lapin – Success You Can Smell

Rabbi Daniel Lapin – Success You Can Smell.

Really enjoyed this one. Sort of confirms our instinct to engage the kids in the work of the family. Often we are in such a rush that we want to do it ourselves in the name of getting done soon, but there are other moments where it is profitable in an intrinsic sense, to take more time and get the kiddos to learn discipline, about helping and even some self confidence and self reliance. They end up being accountable to help keep things clean too. Awesome.

Burgettstown starlet may have been in most movies of all

Burgettstown starlet may have been in most movies of all – Terry Hazlett – www.observer-reporter.com.

This lady, Jane Bartholomew, was related to my Uncle.  He still lives in the Pittsburgh area and has mentioned her in the past.  Its fun to have a connection to her.  And it is VERY fun to mention to people when the picture of her holding the torch comes on the TV during a movie that she is a relative.  Also passed down with the story is the fact that she only made $25 for the picture.  Interesting how that part of the story has never changed, even as the story has been retold.
