I'll be offline until Sunday celebrating a somewhat (and undeservedly) obscure Jewish holiday called Shavuot.* It celebrates the giving of the Torah on Mt. Sinai - a story I love not only for its religious importance but also because it sounds like such a wild light show.
16. It came to pass on the third day when it was morning, that there were thunder claps and lightning flashes, and a thick cloud was upon the mountain, and a very powerful blast of a shofar, and the entire nation that was in the camp shuddered.
You know I'm not a Bible quoter but this is just so great and dramatic - isn't is? Anyway I'll see you Sunday.
*OH and the cheesecake is up there because this is a holiday that is, traditionally, heavy with dairy meals.
