MY KINGDOM FOR A GOOD PASTRAMI

We like pastrami and corned beef. Although many people prefer first cut brisket for corned beef, we prefer second cut. For pastrami, we prefer first cut, but we will happily take second cut.

We really love the “I”m Not Martha, I”m Lizzy” emails that we get. Recently, we got one about onions: red onions, white onions and yellow onions. We once spent days driving across Texas by car and all we remember is the smell of the onion fields. Other than that, we like onions, we use onions, […]

EL AL, COMPETITION AND ISRAIR

Back in December (2005) we wrote about the improvement on El Al flights. Well, it seems we are a minority on that issue.
