      I Thought It Was Against The Law!

      Please visit my other blogs!  They're updated more frequently. 

      I was having a lovely, yes another, birthday lunch, this time with Sharon Katz, of Voices Magazine, in the Mamilla Mall, Jerusalem, when we were disturbed by the noise outside. It was hard to believe.  An entire crew of yellow-coated (wearing yellow, waterproof raincoats) were hosing down and hosing down and kept on hosing down one of the fancy apartments just across from us. Months ago the municipality had sent out notice that it was against the law.

      We pay a lot for water in Shiloh.  If the owners of that apartment are billed like we are, they're in for a surprise.
