It is summer holiday now,
the Knesset is out of session until the middle of October.
In Jerusalem, Israel, when one says after the holidays,
it usually means a wait until after all the Jewish fall holidays,
not just two weeks in the summer.
We have waited a long time for the Montefiore Windmill
renovations to be finished
so that it can go into operation as a working flour mill again.
At the beginning of the week it clearly was not finished.
After all the waiting the Windmill finally got its blades,
but the main dedication will have to wait until the end of August.
I got to hear Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
when she was in Jerusalem, Israel, 10 days ago.
Gee, we were waiting then too.
US presidential candidate Mitt Romney is coming soon,
but I have not heard of any chance to hear or see Mitt Romney,
unless you have a spare $50,000 to give him that is.
In the miserable heat this week it was hard to work or think.
It was even hard to find anything amusing,
but these “walking” signs got me to laugh out loud.
Wonder what they are doing now?
We finally got our windmill.
Maybe they can advertise that we are waiting for an invite to see Mitt.
Oh well, the heat wave just broke and there is a cool breeze.
Now that is what we all have been waiting for.

Aloha from Waikiki
Good to hear from you again
When we were in Hawaii is was really hot in December, but we stayed by the water or in it.
I don’t like the heat much either (we’ve had our share of it in New Jersey, only probably a much more humid version). I enjoy your updates from Jerusalem. Your walking signs are cool <-now, there's something cooling.
We do need something cook once in awhile, really not so bad today.
Getting AC installed next week so heat wave should break.
Now to go to Romney or not go, that is the question…
I’m glad you found something to make you laugh out loud. Those walking signs are very funny…they made me laugh too. I look forward to seeing more about the windmill.
