This blog turned 19 and I didn’t notice
I was scrolling through notifications in the WordPress.com app this morning, and noticed that I had hit a milestone. I have been on WordPress.com for 17 years. To add to that, I have had this site in its various incarnations for just over 19 years. My first post on this site was published on 6…
17 years and I miss my father every day
My father passed away 17 years ago, today (at least based on the Hebrew calendar – he passed away on 12 July 2003). This week we also join our cousins, and aunt in mourning our uncle who passed away last week.
My blog is 14 years old, today, and it’s a big day for blogging

Today is the 12th anniversary of my Dad’s, Peter’s, passing, according to the Hebrew calendar. He died on 13 Tammuz 5763/12 July 2003 after a short battle with pancreatic cancer. Today is our yahrzeit. So much has happened in my life in the last 12 years that I wish he could have shared with us.…
Its been a year already
Its been a year since my brother-in-law, Cliff Hoffmann, passed away. Its fitting that today is such a sombre day here in Johannesburg. I took the photo below at a lunch at Gina’s late grandmother, Granny Ruby, on the 2nd of January 2011. I remember that day being a pretty good day. We were visiting…
