Is she going to be 13 Charlie? That indeed is a big day for her. More questions Charlie. Can the 13th birthday be celebrated a week or so later or does it have to be right on the day? I know it is a BIG day for the boys, but do most Jewish families celebrate it as much for the girls? I feel sorry for the families that have only girls.

Yes! Also have a TV that is a dinosaur and the remote control gave out. Seriously, replacement remotes dot com or something similar. I had a new remote within a week. That dinosaur just keeps on going.

I guess you haven't heard of the bat mitzvah: http://www.myjewishlearning.com/life...zvah_101.shtml

In the past few months I've replaced a defrost timer and defrost thermostat on my fridge, also parts for my clothes dryer. They are much cheaper than on-line appliance parts sites or your Sears/Kenmore/Whirlpool or whatever local parts centers.

You not only fix roads, but also appliances!

Ah, but nothing can compare to the joy of finding that Kleenex in your pocket when you really, really need one. Yes, allergy season has begun down here.

I have. But I wonder if it is as big as it is for the boys.

You've never seen my crazy crooked finger? It started with an injury during a wrestling match Junior year and by freshman year of college I was told it had turned into arthritis. It's usually tolerable, but gets pretty sore if it gets abused or if my hands get too cold. If it's already bugging me a little, it gets really sore with sudden weather changes.

Exactly, the Joy of Kleenex. Can't live without 'em. Panic sets in when I can't find one on me.

Sprout, you wrestled in HS? Good for you! Or was it with a boyfriend?

I believe it depends on the congregation and how liberal or orthodox they are.
