      Square Watermelons and Other Cool Things

      by Tamar Yonah

      Thanks to my listeners from all over the world who send me interesting emails.  These are just fun cool things I thought I would post, just in case someone missed some of these news pieces.

      1) Square Watermelons

      A round watermelon can take up a lot of room in a refrigerater and the usually round fruit often sits awkwardly on refrigerator shelves. 
      Smart Japanese Farmers have forced their watermelons to grow into a square shape by inserting the melons into square, tempered glass cases while the fruit is still growing on the vine.

      2) Salt Water Fuel - Simply amazing!

      This could put the Arabs out of business.

      3)  Bishop Urges Christians to Call G-d 'Allah'

      "Catholic churches in the Netherlands should use the name Allah for God to ease tensions between Muslims and Christians, says a Dutch bishop.

      Tiny Muskens, the bishop of Breda, told the Dutch TV program "Network" Monday night he believes God doesn't mind what he is called, Radio Netherlands Worldwide reported.

      So, does it matter what we call G-d?  When you pray, do you pray to 'baal', 'moloch', 'buddha', 'jesus-yeshua', 'allah moon god' -- or do you pray to the ONE, the Master of the Universe, the G-d of Avraham, Yitzchak and Yaakov?  Maybe it doesn't matter to this Catholic Bishop, but it should. I think a good re-reading of the first two, of the Ten Commandments is in order for anyone who prays to ANY other entity.  Do you remember what the first two commandments are?  Test yourself.  If you don't know them, you might want to review the most basic of laws.

       

      4)  An ONLY IN ISRAEL Story

      Someone from Neve Daniel sent the following delightful story, that happened in their own community on Shabbat.
      I love these kind of stories...
      Rabbi Hershorn came out of his house on Shabbat morning and saw a taxi parked outside his neighbours house (the Adler's). That's a little
      unusual since Adler doesn't drive a taxi and cars don't come into Neve Daniel on Shabbat. So when he saw Adler, Adler told him the story of where the taxi came from.

      Here's what happened:

      Friday afternoon, Adler flew back to Israel from abroad. The plane was a little delayed, but he had just about enough time to get from Lod Airport back to Neve Daniel. He jumped in the first cab and flew off. On the way, the cabbie turned round to him and said, "It's getting late! I'm a Sabbath-observing Jew. With all best intentions, it doesn't look like I'm going to be able to take you as far as Gush Etzion and then make it back to my house before Shabbat sets in. Tell you what: I'll drive past my house in Bet Shemesh, jump out, and give you the keys. You drive the cab to Neve Daniel and I'll pick it upafter Shabbat."

      So that's what he did! Only in Israel...
