When I lived in Chelsea, every time there was a Jewish holiday coming up, you would see signs in all the food store windows, "Manachevitz Wines for Sale". My kids thought it was great living there. They not only got Christian holidays off, but Jewish ones also. I was the only Christian living in a six family building. I learned a lot about the Jewish faith living in that city. The little store I used to go to for milk, etc. had a wife/husband that owned it. One day they both showed me the tattooed numbers on their arms. I almost fainted. I loved them before that day, but loved them even more after. I certainly had more respect for them. I didn't ask questions, but one day the wife started to tell me some of the stories. Only because both of them were overweight and reasonable healthy when they were taken away, were they assigned to a work group. They also both had blue eyes.

I don't want my last words to be, "I wish I had spent more time doing housework"
