Around and About

Laurence Simon made it through the Blogathon, raising close to three thousand dollars (if not more by now) for the Cat Welfare Society of Israel. Kudos, congrats and kol ha-kavod!

Meryl Yourish has a great post today about missionaries and their deceptive tactics.

The Israel Broadcasting Authority’s full-length English news broadcast is finally on the Internet. (This is the longer broadcast, not the ten-minute spot shown at 4:50 p.m. on Channel One, and even that not for very much longer. I didn’t catch the date on which it will be discontinued, but it will be quite soon—within the next day or two, I think.)

Help Kate with some much-needed emergency dental work, if you can.

And finally, notice anything different up top? Yeah, I mean that tiny little sunflower in the address bar (or on the Favorites list). It’s called a favicon, and it’s there thanks to Steve of Blog d’Elisson, whose teaching and help made it possible. Thanks, Steve! Much appreciated. (Hakuna and Matata, be extra nice to him today, OK?) Here’s a link for anyone who would like to learn how to create and install a favicon.

And that’s it for now. Time to go to sleep.
