These are not the droids you seek

So, it seems that the hits on my blog have been increasing because everyone is looking for Hannan Kavalsky's music. Hannan, and I quote from his email to me, "work and play music under the guise 'Kavalsky'". He asked to buy the domain, but I cannot do that. However, what I can do is let everyone know this is not the artist's site. His site is located at

Sorry for the confusion and please update your bookmarks appropriately.

A Jewish Joke

When your mom sends you a joke, there is a small obligation to find it funny. However, I do find this one funny, so I am posting it here.

I don't know if you know this, but you can now purchase Kosher computers! They are made in Israel by a company called DELL-SHALOM. The price is so low... even with the shipping from Israel!

However, before you purchase a kosher computer of your own, you should know that there are some important changes from the typical non-kosher computer you are used to, such as:

1) The 'Start' button has been replaced with a 'Let's go! I'm not getting any younger!' button.
2) You hear 'Hava Nagila' during startup.
3) The cursor moves from right to left.
4) When Spell-checker finds an error it prompts, 'Is this the best you can do?'
5) When you look at erotic images, your computer says, 'If your mother knew you did this, she would die.'
6) It comes with a 'monitor cleaning solution' from Manischewitz that gets rid of all the 'schmutz und drek.'
7) When running 'Scan Disk' it prompts you with a 'You want I should fix this?' message.
8) After 20 minutes of no activity, your PC goes, 'Schloffen.'
9) The PC shuts down automatically at sundown on Friday evenings.
10) It comes with two hard drives - one for fleyshedik (business software) and one for milchedik (games).
11) Instead of getting a 'General Protection Fault' error, your PC now gets 'Ferklempt.'
12) The multimedia player has been renamed to 'Nu, so play my music already!'
13) When your PC is working too hard, you occasionally hear a loud 'Oy Gevalt!'
14) Computer viruses can now be cured with matzo ball soup.
15) When disconnecting external devices from the PC, you are instructed to "Remove the cable from the PC's tuchus."
16) After your computer dies, you have to dispose of it within 24 hours.
17) But best of all, if you have a kosher computer, you can't get SPAM.

I gently weep

The result of work that needed to be done due to a broken water main on our property. Yes, we called the county. Yes, we called insurance. No, homeowners association will not help.

Happy birthday, Jacob Dalton Kavalsky!!!

Five years ago today, Tiffany and I headed to the hospital. We had no idea what we were having, but knew we were going to love it to death. I remember vividly the scene in the delivery room when they pulled back the sheet to start the delivery and Jacob already had his head out looking around.

This past year has not been the easiest, but it has become the most rewarding. Jacob is always ahead of the game. Wondering what is next. He doesn't know the meaning of walk or slow down. It's full steam ahead for him. I'm always telling him to stop. I justify it by saying it is for his safety, but I think deep down I am jealous. Jealous of his zest for life even at five years old.

I think as I try to help Jacob grow and become a young man, that I am going to try and learn from him and become more of a kid again. We can teach each other.

I love you, Jacob. I will always love you.

Life imitating art?

A real life Augustus Gloop:

Very tragic. Not funny. OK, a little funny.
