A Jewish Wedding

We attended a Messianic (Jewish & Gentile) wedding last night. My friend, Vonnie, from work married her honey, Bill. The ceremony began with a Shofar Blast. From the wedding program, a Shofar is described as an animal's horn prepared for use as a musical instrument. Together with the reed, it is one of the earliest musical instruments known to man which is still in use. It is mentioned 69 times in the Bible. It was a beautiful wedding, with bits of fun, prayers, a Davidic Dance to a beautiful song "Fine Linen", violin played by Vonnie's 17-year-old daughter Abby, wine drinking between the bride and groom, the marriage vows and the traditional breaking of the glass. Vonnie's wedding dress was beautiful, and her colors - light sage and brown were breathtaking! We stayed for a bit of the reception, but left before the dance was fully underway. Ronnie Choy, who also works at the Eagle, was the DJ. Ronnie is a great DJ, and also did the receptions for Mike & Diana, my brother and sister-in-law, and Lenore and Daniel, my niece and "nephew-in-law" - is that a term? Anyway, it was quite the experience and a beautiful ceremony. I took my camera, but apparently was in awe of my surroundings, because I only took one picture. This is of a friend and co-worker, Trish, and her 5-year old son, Shaun, who entertained our whole table! Trish is also a hair stylist and she did all the wedding parties hair, so she was pretty tired!


My car is at the transmission shop being repaired. They determined it was the magnetic speed sensor, so of course it involves pulling the transmission. It's a good thing Corby had a lot of overtime the last 2 weeks, because it's going to cost us a good sum of money. We can't afford a new car right now with 3 kids in college, and we decided we would try to keep my car running another year or two. Hopefully I will get it back on Tuesday. I am off work Monday and Tuesday, so at least Corby doesn't have to worry about taking me to work. Our schedules are just a bit different, so it means I have to go in early, and then he has to wait for me when he gets off. It's workable, but not something we want to do long term!


Kaitlin is coming home on Friday for a 3 days weekend! It will be so good to have her home! Brandon hasn't been home since they moved up the first of August, but we've seen him several times when we've made trips to Manhattan. Kaleb has been home a couple of times and so has Kaitlin. Of course, Brandon is a junior, so he's used to being on his own. I'm sure Kaleb will stay at K-State, but Kaitlin is pretty sure she's going to come home in May and go to WSU next year. It will be good to have her home if that's what she decides! I know her cats and dog will be happy to see her next weekend, AND happy if she comes back home! (ME TOO!)

REVIEW: The Lost Girls by Allison Brennan

THE LOST GIRLS

5 STARS

Love Brennan's Lucy Kincaid series!

Siobhan Walsh has been looking for two sisters who disappeared 2 years ago. She feels responsible, so when she gets a phone call from a Texas priest, who has found an abandoned newborn with a locket nearby that she'd given one of the girls; she goes to Texas in hopes of finding them. She calls in her FBI friends, including Lucy Kincaid, and the search is on. Meanwhile, Lucy's fiance, Sean, has an unexpected visit from a former girlfriend. Her husband, and the 12 year old son he never knew he had, have disappeared in Mexico. So it's time for the Rogan family to find out what's going on.

This is a suspenseful, hard-to-put-down book, so hang on for the ride! Be prepared for a human trafficking story that is hard to stomach, and more than likely, all too true in this day and age. Mexican cartels, murder and mayhem. This book has it all.

Entertainment Weekly "REVISITED"

(thanks for the REVISITED idea, Robyn!)

Okay, I posted last week a blog entry about Entertainment Weekly's Top 100 Movies of the last 25 years. Now I'm going to post their Top 10 TV Shows, and my Top 10 TV Shows...

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY'S TOP 10:
1. The Simpson's - don't like, never watch
2. The Sopranos - never watched
3. Seinfeld - don't like, not a Seinfeld fan
4. The X-Files - never watched
5. Sex and the City - never watched (do you see a pattern here?)
6. Survivor - UGH - I HATE ALMOST ALL REALITY SHOWS!
7. The Cosby Show - I would put this in my Top 20, but probably not my Top 10
8. Lost - never watched
9. Friends - HATED!
10. Buffy the Vampire Slayer - never watched

Obviously you can see my tastes are definitely not the same as the EW reviewer's.

Here's my Top 10:
1. Miami Vice - I still drool over Don Johnson
2. Golden Girls - consistently funny, and I love Sophia!
3. Scarecrow and Mrs. King - Bruce Boxleitner was one HOT dude!
4. CSI Miami - great cast! great st…
