Oh no, I’ve got a cold. Such a minor complaint, but so all-encompassing when it strikes.
Wishing all my Jewish readers a meaningful fast. G’mar Hatima Tova: may you be sealed in the Book of Life.
See ya on the Net,

The Great Harry Houdini
“With each arrival in a new town, Houdini would offer $100 to anyone who provided handcuffs he could not escape, including the local police. He never had to pay the $100. His easy escapes provided excellent publicity for his shows and he quickly became a headliner, playing in large cities across the country.” Visit this fan site for a biography, and details about Houdini’s career and death.
