Simon Deng speaks out: Read Deng’s excellent piece about Bishop Desmond Tutu’s denouncement of “Israeli apartheid” in the Jewish Advocate. Deng, a human rights activist and himself a victim of persecution in the Sudan, takes Tutu to task over his anti-Israeli rhetoric. Hat tip to Central LS.
More hail damage: Last week’s storm is still making its effects felt. We discover that not only is a blinker broken on my poor little Ignis, but that the solar collection panels on the roof (for all four townhouse units) are smashed. I hadn’t noticed until this morning that the hood and top of my car are dented, as if someone has gone to town with a ballpeen hammer. Oh, well. I’m not such a car nut that I can’t drive a dented vehicle.
Pick your pack animal: Alpacas or llamas? After my visit to the alpaca farm at Mitzpeh Ramon, I can tell which is which. Anyone have a llama or alpaca story to share?
