Happy Holidays!

First, a joke (thanks Jody!):

El Al Flight mid to late December landing in Tel-Aviv.

As the El Al plane touches ground and starts to taxi at Ben Gurion airport, the voice of the first mate came on

"Please remain seated with your seat belts fastened until this plane comes to a complete stop and the seat belt signs have been turned off. We want to remind you for security reasons, using cell phones on board of the aircraft is strictly prohibited."

"To those who are still seated, we wish you a Merry Christmas, and hope that you enjoy your stay in Israel..."and

"To those of you standing in the aisles and already talking on your cell phones, we wish you a Happy Chanukah, and welcome back home."

Now a deep thought:

On the first night of Chanukah all eight candle holders stand before you. But you light only one. Tomorrow night you shall light two. You know that eventually you will light all eight.

From which we learn two things:

  1. Move step by step in life. Take things on at a pace you can handle.
  2. Always grow. Always keep moving. If you did one good thing yesterday, do two today. Your ultimate achievement is always one step ahead.

Happy Holidays to one and all!
