Happy Rosh Hashanah:
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, begins at sundown on September 20th and ends at sundown September 22nd (Google). It is the year 5778 in the Hebrew calendar.
(added 9/22) The celebration of Yom Teruah (Rosh Hashanah) is also a celebration of the anniversary of Adam and Eve. It is a time of fasting and prayers.
Please see Carbuncle Moon post of 1/19/15 and 1/3/17...
"I'm drivin in Bangor, Maine, and I, uh, spots this driver wearin a life jacket. I wonders what this guy knows that I don’t. So’s I looks up into the tax ridden sky searchin for storm clouds -- almosts hits a cab. But, naw, nothin up there but the quickest way to Finland if you has a blimp. So, I shrugs my wee shoulders, um, and figures what-the-hell the pre-flood motorist is probably just a lucky bastard out for a large beer. But, then I spots four women speeding recklessly after this guy in a beat up Audi --
"So, heck, maybe the guy’s a good Muslim and his wives, uh, are gonna head him off before he makes it to a bar. Or maybe he’s a good Irish Catholic and his ex-wives are in hot pursuit of alimony. Or maybe it’s four good Rabbis chasin a moil.
"Huh? Well, sure enough, ah, I hears the religious ladies sing out: “Hold up fella, we have to have someone circumcised.
"Whether Muslim, Christian, or Jew, the Irish fella in the life jacket answers up: "No problem darlins, pull over. I'm your man." (posted earlier)
