The Miracle of YouTube!

The Miracle of YouTube!
This morning I woke up wanting to listen to Luciano Pavarotti singing Nessun Dorma. On YouTube, there are tons of Pavarotti videos. But there is more! YouTube is a miracle allowing me to view stars of yesteryear!

Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers. Gene Kelley, Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, James Cagney, Judy Garland and sooooooo many others! Browsing thru time and seeing actors, dancers, singers who have given so much pleasure. Double wow with sugar on it!

My Bibles.
I have four bibles in MsTioga's library. The first was a gift from my grandmother, my Dad's Mom. This bible is written in English and I received it at my Bar Mitzvah [confirmation]. I received two bibles by inheritance. My Zaida's [grandfather-my Mom's Dad] prayer book came to me after his death. Uncle Joe's bible was issued to him when he was a soldier in World War II and it became mine after he died. When Irene [lady friend] and I bought our Little Cabin in the Woods, a children's bible was left by the former cabin owners. This Bible is signed by their son Eric Phifer, and it is my favorite bible.

This morning I was re-reading Exodus, the story of how Moses led the Hebrews out of Egypt to Mount Sinai. There God gives the Hebrews their laws and enters into a covenant with them which gives them the land of Canaan in return for their faithfulness.
