PAJU, South Korea — A group of 30 female peace activists, including the feminist leader Gloria Steinem and two Nobel Peace Prize laureates, crossed the demilitarized zone from North Korea to South Korea on Sunday, calling for an end to the Korean War, whose unresolved hostility has been symbolized by the heavily armed border for six decades.
It was rare for the two rival Korean governments to agree to allow a group of peace activists to pass through the border area, known as the DMZ.
Yet some of the symbolism the activists had hoped to … [Continue reading...]
The Oyster Bar first opened its doors in 1913 on the lower level of Grand Central Terminal. Woodrow Wilson was President, the United States was on the threshold of World War I, and Prohibition was just six years away. New York City was slowly emerging as a literary and artistic center, and little “salons” that attracted writers and artists and dilettantes were starting to spring up in Greenwich Village and in other parts of the city. The resplendent new Grand Central Terminal opened its doors that year too, on the site of what formerly had been the old and rundown train depot. People flocked to see the new terminal that was then as now considered an engineering marvel.
For almost 60 years the old Oyster Bar remained a landmark. But if the truth be known, the long-lived acceptance of the … [Continue reading...]

New Guidelines Suggest Introducing Foods like Peanuts to Babies as Young as 4-6 Months Help Prevent Allergies
Jenna Helwig, Parents Food Editor and author of a new book, REAL BABY FOOD tells us how.
Until now, we believed that introducing babies to foods slowly would reduce the risk of developing an allergic reaction. Now, new research indicates that the delay could potentially increase the risk of developing a food allergy. The latest recommendations from the American Academy of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology are in sharp contrast to earlier guidelines that children should put off having foods like peanuts, eggs shellfish, and fish until age 3.

In September 2008, the company changed it’s name from the R.A.B. Food Group to the Manischewitz Company, under which it operates today.
It all started with Rabbi Dov Behr
The B. Manischewitz Company, LLC traces its beginnings back to the spring of 1888, when Rabbi Dov Behr Manischewitz opened a small Matzo bakery in Cincinnati, Ohio.
A humble beginning
It was largely from his spiritual concerns that he set out to make matzo or unleavened bread for Passover, first for his family and a few friends, but soon for many of the devout Jews of the city. His bakery soon evolved into a successful business, innovative and prosperous––though never inattentive to the spiritual needs of its customers.
From small bakery to booming business
By the end of the century, demand for his matzo … [Continue reading...]

As we get older we sometimes begin to doubt our ability to "make a difference" in the world. It is at these times that our hopes are boosted by the remarkable achievements of other "seniors" who have found the courage to take on challenges that would make many of us wither.
Harold Schlumberg is such a person:
THIS IS QUOTED FROM HAROLD:
"I've often been asked, 'What do you do now that you're retired?'
"Well...I'm fortunate to have a chemical engineering background and one of the things I enjoy most is converting beer, wine and whiskey into urine. It's rewarding, uplifting, satisfying and fulfilling. I do it every day and I really enjoy it."
Harold is an inspiration to us all. … [Continue reading...]

Toad in the Hole
What could be more delicious than sausage encased in a crisp, Golden Yorkshire Pudding smothered in gravy? Absolutely nothing. That is a Toad in the Hole. This is a very traditional Dish in England – a hearty meal perfect for a chilly winter night.
Don't worry there are definitely no toads involved! The origin of the name "Toad-in-the-Hole" is often disputed. Many suggestions are that the dish's resemblance to a toad sticking its head out of a hole provides the dish with its somewhat unusual name. It is rumored to have been called "Frog-in-the-Hole" in the past, although little evidence exists to support this theory. It has also been referred to as "sausage toad". Yorkshire pudding is a delicious batter that is baked in the … [Continue reading...]

As we approach Thanksgiving, many hosts stress about everything from cooking the perfect turkey and pumpkin pie to the dreaded post-dinner cleanup, wondering how they can spend more time entertaining guests and enjoying turkey day, and less time in the kitchen doing dishes.

This outdated ritual not only wastes valuable time and water but also hinders results!
