It was the beautiful chirping sounds of birds that woke me the other morning. A symphonic cacophony. It is that special time of year here on Long Island when you can leave your windows open at night and enjoy the cool night air… and the birds as the sun rises.I admit that they wake me a bit earlier than I might prefer, but I really can’t blame the

The Bedwetter
Posted By : ODEY RAVIV

A new musical has hit the stage in New York.  And get this… it’s about divorce, depression, and bedwetting.  More surprisingly, it is a raucous comedy.  Comedian and actress, Sarah Silverman, infamous for her comedy routines, spotlighting her very open attitudes and vibrant language about sex had written her memoir “The Bedwetter” in 2010.   After

And I don't mean people from other countries on this planet but an extraterrestrial.     Pentagon officials speaking at the first public hearing on UFOs since the 1960s have shown previously classified footage of an unidentified aerial phenomenon (UAP), a split-second video of a metallic sphere zoom

Lesson from a Massage
Posted By : Benjamin Geizhals

Recently, I had a massage and I learned a lesson. The massage was nice. The message was significant.As the massage started, I found myself thinking about what the therapist would do next. Expectations took over my thoughts….until I realized that I wasn’t enjoying the massage and that, perhaps, I should let go and allow the therapist to do her thing
