I will focus on Eating Challenges rather than contests with the exception of a few contests that I feel an importance to , such as the Go Go Curry, which I will try to be at the finals in person to report back to the Lerman Report for publication on this site. If anyone wants to have their challenges or their contests wins published , send pictures and a brief Story about them to Donmoseslerman@gmail.com and we will put them up..Thank you Don Lerman , Blog Administrator
Cigarettes are so bad for us why don’t they just ban the sale, importation and growing of all tabbacco products period ? Smokers have been reduce to pariahs in the workplace in restaurants all over . If your in restaurant and light up , they can throw you out and call a cop but if you sit there and break wind they can’t do a thing to you.. How unfair. In the workplace smokers are going out for smoke every half hour , look at the loss in productivity..Nobody quits for the price of cigaretes .In third world nations like the Philippines ,Bangkok and West Africa where people don’t have a pot to piss in ,they are willing and do pay $20 a pack for American Brand cigarettes.
So the Government kows that in a relatively healthy American Economy we’ll pay $10 a pack most willing .Its an addiction harder to stop than Heroin. The first thing the U.S. should do is no more subsidizing the growing of tobacco . followed total ban in 3 years with Tough measure for illegal import and sales to include Rockefeller type drug laws to be enacted for the sale distributive , importation and growing of all tobacco products. It should be a bipartition effort and a National Lottery should be put forth to replace the loss in tax revenue.
You don’t hear too much or anything in the American Press these days about the Druze. What’s their status in Israel? However all we ever hear about is the Palestinians? Yet the Druze are much larger group then they are. The Druze who prefer to be called Druze rather than Muslims. They actually are an off shoot of Islam in the same way the Mormons Usually refer to themselves as Mormons than Christians. They served in the Jewish states war of Independence along side of their Jewish counterparts and continue to serve and in the Israeli Army today. They maintain their own courts in many matters.They have been loyal to Israel and continue to do so..They are true friends of the Jewish people.
Perhaps when Israel went into Lebanon in the 1980″s some sort of homeland or autonomous region should have been made for those Druze who reside in Lebanon
I’ve noticed that in the last 20 years there were new group of barbers that spoke Russian…looked middle eastern and closed their shop on Rosh Hashanah..They are Jewish barbers from the former Soviet Union .They hail from countries such as Azerbaijan, and Bokhara.They have technique that’s about the best I”V seen in my 70 yrs.. even the discount barber shops their skill is unbelievable, The best haircut around.
I personally go to one in my neighborhood and I get my haircut ( every 2 weeks ) If they here where were they when I was growing up, I suspect that in the late sixties we may not have a Hippy era and revolt on getting haircuts.end
