This is Not Haveil Havalim #135

Updated multiple times: I have received more than one email asking how I could just grab Haveil Havalim without permission. Obviously you missed Talk Like a Pirate Day or you’d know you know that Captain Jack- One-eared Dog the Damned doesn’t ask permission to do anything. ARRGGGH!!!!!!!!

Hoist the mainsail, swab the decks and read matey!

Welcome to the unauthorized, unofficial and up to now unrecognized edition of Haveil Havalim. Haveil Havalim is the weekly round up of posts of the JBlogosphere.

It is taking a brief hiatus for the chagim. Rumor has that at the break fast it ate too many hard boiled eggs and is suffering from indigestion, or maybe that was me, so you’ll forgive me for the brevity of this edition.

Here we go off into the wild blue yonder.

The Waffle King offers Interviewing the Enemy and RALLY IN NEW YORK AGAINST AHMEDINEJAD. Over at Israel Matzav you can learn How to sabotage Ahmadinejad’s speech at Columbia. Jewlicious offers their own take on this as well.

Dr. Sanity blogged about CHOICES (or, Do Two Half-Wits Make A**Hole?).

Seraphic Secret is among the many who ask what is wrong with Columbia University. LGF has a video that ties into all of this. Check out: Ahmadinejad: ‘If the World Is Calm, Europe Will Eradicate the Zionists’. You might also want to read Lee Bollinger, Tough Guy.

Take a look at Irrational in Iran: Plans drawn up to bomb Israel.
Shiloh Musings provided The Olmert Troika. Joe Settler says the War Has Begun.

In other news Treppenwitz reports The Pina Chama was robbed! It is an important post that you should read carefully. Daled Amos served What Would Mearsheimer and Walt Say About The Czechoslovakia Lobby?

Maybe we should have elected Billy Carter. Check out Mere Rhetoric’s post entitled Jimmy Carter: Iran Is Nothing To Worry About.

Ezzie has his own roundup of Yom Kippur posts. Take a look. Ren Reb shares a few of her thoughts from Yom Kippur. RWAC has his own post Yom Kippur thoughts as does Ra’anana Ramblings and lets not forget Shira either. Jacob reminds us that there are No Guarantees in Life. Gil has his own Musings. Therapy Doc provided her own thoughts too. And by all means remember to read If You Must.

Some more to read Juggling Frogs and Rabbi Sedley.

Elie has a touching post called May It Be Your Will as does Shifra’s tribute to her brother.

It might be nice to go back in time so that I could countdown my own 30th birthday again. Birthday celebrations tied up A Bisele Babka. LOR has some videos that just might make you smile. Rafi is building a Sukkah.

You might enjoy Rosh Hashanah: The Book of Life & Death and Next Year In Jerusalem.

How about listening to A Hard’s Day Night in Yiddish. Aussie Dave is slowly building his own army. Cro-Magnon man is back at the keyboard. Biur Chametz is still on an extended break. Apparently so are Amishav, AbbGav and so is the Shmata Queen.

Elisson shares an interview. KRG shared Polish Hip Hop Bhangra. Now there is something you don’t see every day.

And now a moment of silence for famous Jewish Mime, Marcel Marceau.

Ok folks, I have to get back to real world doings. Hope you are all recovered from the chag. See you later.

    Thanks for the link, Jack. It’s always refreshing to read what you post.

    No one cuts me off from my waffle supply.

    Sorry Jack. The Blog police are out looking for you.

    Unauthorized Haveil Havalim editions?

    People have gone to jail for less.

    No waffles for you!

    Biur Chametz has taken on a new identity, but I don’t know that I’m at liberty to tell.

    You know I have this feeling that I see him on a regular basis and just don’t know it.




    Don’t be so sure.


    I am always pleased to learn about members of the Resistance. It gives me hope in humanity.

    Rabbi Sedley,

    You too. May we all merit only good things.

    Thanks for the link Jack and gmar chatima tova to you too (though I suppose I should say Chag Sameach now, and even ‘a gutte kvitel’).
    May you be blessed with another great year of health happiness and blogging.

    A very pleasant surprise–thanks for the link.

    About Marcel Marceau–I remember when he presented at the Oscars. He mimed each nomination for Best Picture, and then read the name of the winner.

    I knew he was Jewish, but had forgotten he was involved in the French Resistance.

  7. Tamara September 24, 2007 at 3:30 pm

    Ha! He for sure was NOT where the 3 of us were.

  8. PsychoToddler September 24, 2007 at 3:03 pm

    This was a great Non HH!

  9. Soccer Dad September 24, 2007 at 1:10 pm

    It feels like I’m not invited to my own party! 🙁

    Nicely done.

    Biur Chametz has taken on a new identity, but I don’t know that I’m at liberty to tell.

    Thanks for the item on Marcel Marceau. He’s an answer to the trivia question “Who spoke the only word in Mel Brooks’s ‘Silent Movie.'”

    Hi Gail,

    It was kind of an impromptu thing.


    My pleasure.


    When you next speak with him say hello. Better yet ask him why he didn’t introduce himself yesterday. 😉

  11. Tamara September 24, 2007 at 1:50 am

    Man, and no mention of your new friends who you have met but not the other way around 🙂

    Really though, just to let you know, Amishav is alive and VERY well. We got a suprise call from him today actually. Just an FYI

  12. Jacob Da Jew September 23, 2007 at 11:11 pm

    What a pleasant surprise…I roll over to check jack’s shack and see that I got hooked up with a nice link.


  13. Gail September 23, 2007 at 8:30 pm

    How cool, a surprise edition of HH! Thanks for doing this post and thanks for linking.
