President Peres: It is no major surprise as Shimon Peres is elected president. While I have enormous respect for Peres as a statesman who has dedicated his life to the political process, I do sort of wish we had fresh blood in the position. Peres, who began serving in the Knesset in 1959, is now in his 80s. He’s still sharp as a tack and quite energetic, but I wonder how he is going to cope with all those state dinners! (Peres keeps his trim shape with an extremely restricted calorie intake.)
Smellevision is here: Leave it Israeli innovation to come up with Cinematrix, a new theater system that includes motion, temperature change, and smell! Be sure to watch the video. All I can say is, glad they didn’t have this when Animal House came out.
Rubber combs rule: Northern LS not only gets a hat tip for the Cinematrix info, but she wins Nadine’s heart by giving her a strange rubber gadget that removes fluff while massaging the cat. Nadine quickly turns into a melted puddle of kitty blubber. She glares at me when I stop.
