My post today has a common thread. What may be considered unusual and daring in another city is not considered such in Jerusalem. Like the babies out for a stroll, and the young father in front of me who carries a hand-gun in the right side of his belt. I see many men whose belt is worn and stretched on the right side in the back, revealing the impression that years of carrying around a hand gun will do to a belt.
If you enlarge the photo you will see a worker standing at the top of a very long extension ladder. It’s my guess that in the States a worker would be hanging from an intricate scaffold.
This morning after exercise I spotted our glorious flowers. Perhaps you recognize the spot in Mirkaz Ha”Ir, Rechove King George in front of the Paz gas office.
Would precious babies -nine of them with 2 caretakers be out for a walk on Central Park West? They are show-cased here in the ubiquitous playpens on wheels that you see in any Israel gan specializing in the care of infants and toddlers. And they were enjoying their stroll.
Now I see private babysitters have the crib prams too. Yes, Israelis are in the business of having babies.
This morning I asked my Google tool to search a question. Should you keep your goals to yourself?
Save the time that you would spend watching and listening to Derek Sivers https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NHopJHSlVo4
In answer to the question: Should you keep your goals to yourself. Research has shown that you should zip up your mouth because energy expended in talking dissipates the mega doses of energy required to reach the goal.
I like to use the comparison, when you open that bottle of soda, it is never the same.
This is a handle that I am searching for in Israel. Doesn’t seem like such a big thing. However, for many reasons, companies don’t have the personnel for the “small” customer like me. Call me relentless.
I understand that the following show is performed two hours outside of Jerusalem. When I requested more details I received this note:
Thank you for your enquiry. The show is actually in Ma’alot, which is 2 hours driving north of Jerusalem. We will be bringing shows to Jerusalem soon and we’ll be sure to let you know when we do.
All the best

I guess Jerusalem is Israel’s Broadway!
What can you get for NIS 50 these days?
How about a fun, energetic show filled with known Broadway songs and incredible dance routines wrapped around a funny story?
That’s exactly what you get with “Ze Broadway, Buba!”. Come and support a talented group of professional Olim actors who are coming to the Heichal Hatarbut in Ma’alot on the 16th of June at 8.30p.m

Check out this Israel Trampoline Park and the playground link that follows. Israelis do play hard.
The link above gets you to a home page of the Ganit company. and then select the lower left arrow for a U-Tube segment of the most fantastic off the Walls gym park I have ever seem. I plan to (B’H) call the company and find out the park’s location. The actors in the U-Tube appear to be professional gymnasts.
