Not Off To A Good Start For the Year—And Part Of That Had To Do With Camille!


While Reilly didn't bark at last night's fireworks, she had no problem beginning 2017 by barking when she wasn't supposed to bark—at least some things never change, and Reilly barking even while "Momma" is waking up for the day is one of the things that's stayed the same. Reilly also ate "nasties" as usual, though she was nowhere near being as defiant as Camille was when she and Camille were on a little walk in the backyard—in fact, Camille had to be pulled away from "nasties" quite a few times!

Meanwhile, Camille chewed through her toy monkey (Guess who plans to do a destuffing tomorrow? By the way, most—if not all—of the destuffed toys have held up quite well.)—and she seems devote part of her insistent nature to on chewing everything through which she chew! She also used that insistence to—as "Auntie Nicole" recalls—lead in the barking during a window-watching session  and try to block "Auntie Nicole" from giving Reilly scritches at one point (after the window session during which Reilly had to be rolled over!).

Reilly and Camille will undoubtedly keep 2017 interesting—and Reilly and "Momma" wish everyone an interesting(-in-a-good-way) and a happy 2017!

Reilly chews her toy monkey on Chrismukkah Day.




Don't let this brat fool you—she tries to get away with whatever being cute might give her a pass to do.

12:22 AM & Reilly Is Not Barking At the Fireworks Yet

Patiently, "Momma" is waiting to hear as the next New Year's fireworks go off as a neighborhood-rule violator once again uses a holiday to commit reckless endangerment and breaches of the peace...

12:26 AM: The girls just came down a-barking and "Mom-Mom" stated that "The fireworks woke them up."

12:27 AM: "Auntie Michelle"/"Mimi" explained to the girls that a "dingbat" set off fireworks.

12:28 AM: After Reilly gets scritches from "Momma" for about a minute and flouts "Shanah Tovah" as she gets distracted by a "nasty", she rings the bell to go "peedy" outside.

12:30 AM: She rings again (Hint, "Auntie Michelle"!)

When (or if) "Auntie Michelle" finally decides to take Reilly "peedy" for the night (and Reilly rang the bell again at 12:31 and 12:32), "Momma" will see whether Reilly behaves during her "peedy" session to start off 2017 well. Whether "Auntie Michelle" puts the computer down already and takes Reilly "peedy" is another question...and she finally put the computer down at 12:33.

At 12:34 (as "Auntie Michelle" kvetches and is at least taking Reilly "peedy"), "Momma" continues live updates to chronicle 2017 so far...

12:36 AM: Reilly actually behaved, per "Autie Michelle"! And "Momma" thought that she ha a guilty look at first!

12:38 AM-about 1:00 AM: "Momma"'s final thoughts for the night and first night of 2017:


  1. Taking Reilly "potty" took "Auntie Michelle" long enough; didn't it?! Meanwhile, tonight is Day Eight of both Christmas (January 1st) and Hanukkah (Zot Chanukkah; Tevet 2, 5776, per moonwatchers in Israel whom stated that the New Moon occurred on December 30, 2016). Little Christmas (HaMolad HaKatan) is coming up, though. Still, "Momma" could use a "miracle" (Of course, the appropriate interjection is "God willing"; not "Hint; hint, God!")
  2. God willing, "Momma" will write about how she seemed to be at least of some use as "Auntie Nicole" while "Mom-Mom" and Camille's "Mimi" had to trim Camille on Friday. "Momma" will also (God willing) write about how, according to "Mom-Mom", Reilly was afraid when "Momma" kept the hannukiah lit for Zot Chanukkah.
  3. "Momma" and Reilly wish everyone a Happy 2017.
"Night nights" and Happy New Year from Reilly and "Momma"!

Reilly enjoys the first day of Chrismukkah 2016 with "Mom-Mom" and "Auntie Michelle".

PS 1:30 AM: Reilly's "Great-Granddaddy" Allen would've been 95 yesterday, and "Mom-Mom" did bring up the milestone this time.

A Summary Of Chrismukkah At Reilly's 🙂, And No Miracle Of a "Daddy" For Reilly 🙁

The highlights are as follows:



  1. At About 1:23 AM On The Day After Christmas: The female canine equivalent of Clara's brother Fritz decided to growl at the female canine equivalent of Clara...over toy monkeys, and this despite (as one can see below) that "Fritz"—or rather, "Frizz"—stole Reilly's toy monkey and put both monkeys in her crate on Christmas Day!
  2. The First Night Of Hanukkah (December 24th): Camille "Frizz" Czarnecki also stole Reilly Czarnecki's toy dreidel at least once. Speaking of stealing, admittedly, two Czarnecki humans used one of the toy dreidels to play the dreidel game when the two Czarnecki canines went to bed—though does that count as stealing or just playing the dreidel game with a treif dreidel in terms of kosher-for-human-use dreidels? By the way, each Czarnecki human ended up with halb of the pot—of course, neither of the Czarnecki canines could have any gelt!
  3. Reilly ended up really liking her toy monkey—in fact (as one can also see below, and on Twitter), she's snuggling with her monkey (which "Auntie Michelle" gave her to snuggle before she and Camille went "night nights") as "Momma" types (and who can resist tweeting cute pictures of Reilly and Camille?).
  4. Reilly still doesn't have a "Daddy", and "Momma" still has no clue what Reilly's possible "Daddy" wants*. At least Reilly's happy and healthy—and able to have the toy monkey that Camille wanted to steal from her, although a toy monkey and a "Daddy" for her (who could help "Momma" keep her happy and healthy) are far different.














*Can't he at least give her an idea—and surely, the same God Whom helped "Momma" to find a spare box of Hanukkah candles, just as He helped the Maccabees find spare oil for the Menorah, can move Reilly's possible "Daddy" to at least contact "Momma", can't He?

Merry Chrismukkah From Reilly & "Momma"!

Meanwhile, Reilly didn't exactly take the photoshoots well:





























  1. The card was worth the photoshoots, though.
  2. "Momma" owes Reilly a treat.
  3. Merry Chrismukkah to all (including Reilly's possible "Daddy", of course. PS "Momma" could certainly use more support in doing these photoshoots, as "Mom-Mom"'s and "Auntie Michelle"'s condemnations of them—including accusations that "Momma"'s "torturing" Reilly—are quite the opposite of support.).

Wait Until Hanukkah & Christmas, and What Reilly & "Momma" Want For Christmas

Even though Reilly was overwhelmed on Thanksgiving, the jury is out on Hanukkah and Christmas. For the past two Hanukkot and Christmases, she did well (😢—"Momma"'s baby's growing. She'll be three human years—and 32.3 dog years—exactly three months after Christmas, and she'll always be "Momma"'s puppy—and a puppy's always a puppy, whether a baby puppy or an adult puppy. 😢—"Momma"'s tearing up again.).

"Momma"'s not exactly sure if Reilly was okay with the nerot shel Hanukkah, though she did well overall. However, she merely tolerated the Hanukkah and Christmas cards for the first ones.



"Momma" made the card using Powerpoint.



"Mom-Mom" took this photo.

Reilly was grinchy about regular pictures on Christmas Eve, too.





As far as Christmas, Reilly liked the treats and toys—and she was heartbreakingly heartbroken and sad when "Momma" had to throw her donut-shaped toy—which was one of her favorite toys—away ("Donut has to go bye-bye". Poor Reilly was whimpering and whining in a gentle and "Please don't throw 'Donut' away" way. Incidentally, "Donut" was replaced with a squeaky-wheel toy named "Speedy".).

Reilly will then want the same kind of gifts for this Hanukkah and Christmas—e.g., treats, toys, family presence. As for "Momma", she wants a God-given gift for herself and Reilly—and Reilly would certainly be a gift in turn, though whether "Momma" would be may be questionable.


PS As "Auntie Nicole" was typing this, she gasped and dropped her mouse because she thought that she saw a bug crawling on her phone—and Camille looked at "Auntie Nicole" with a "What's going on?" and an "Are you okay"? expression.

I've Just Been Busy...

For example, I got an over-15-page paper done yesterday. I also have to finish the first part of my second research paper over the next two days. After that, I have a Hebrew oral exam for which to study. I also have a yahrzeit to observe (To observe it is not exactly conducive while Mom is playing Christmas music.).

The yahrzeit is for Great-Granddad Czarnecki. On this day, Kislev 27, he committed suicide. He was a troubled man, and hurt others; and he was definitely a candle in the wind—lights can be threatened with extinguishment, and spark up and burn others to try to stay burning.

He also came from a troubled family for sure. For example, Michael Andrews—handsome and talented, but clearly into an inappropriate lifestyle. As for Thomas Andrew, he died from a "long illness"—I suspect AIDS—and he had that awful Washleski cousin who—and it just hit me—used "Tufty" to promote Jack Washleski (and yes, I changed that Wikipedia entry. Get over yourself, Mr. Washleski. Your Jack Washleski could've had his own page if you wanted to talk about your cousin. And if what you say is true, that your uncle loved his wife's nephew more than his own children is just sad—and it maybe explains your cousin Thomas, but how you forget him! And how you deleted the information about William, which I had to add back into the entry! Was William's service nothing to you?).

The Andrulewiczes by themselves were clearly troubled, and this to say nothing of the Danilowiczes (Kirk, Michael, and Mia, anybody?) and the Czerneckis.

By the way, Pop-Pop, you are an Andrulewicz. You are your dad's son. Your brother, with all due respect, is wrong when he says that you look more like a Trudnak—you look like both of your parents—you are almost a spitting image of your cousin Thomas, and don't you forget it.

"If we have Jewish blood..."—well, I do know about it, and I'm proud of it. That you aren't is a shame. That your dad committed suicide in of itself is a shame without adding that he committed suicide during HaHag Hanukkah.

And that I couldn't know how God blessed the nations even through our troubled family is a shame.

Why Hanukkah?


"Hanukkah" literally means "dedication". In the Books of Maccabees (which refers to the Kohenic dynasty of the Maccabees), the story of how the Maccabee Family took the Temple back from the Syrians and Greeks who had desecrated it is told. Originally meant to belatedly celebrate Sukkot, Hanukkah became the remembrance and celebration of the retaking of the Temple.
The Pharisees set up the traditions for how Hanukkah is to be celebrated. They relate that one of the Maccabees could not find enough oil for the menorah to be lit continually, but only for a night. The oil instead let the menorah be lit for eight days, according to those same Pharisees.
Jesus celebrated Hanukkah. So, Hanukkah as a historic event really did happen, but the Books of Maccabees are not part of Tanakh.

I'm Pretty Confident That the Old Page Isn't Being Just Buggy...

I know by now that the page, if not just being buggy, was reported unfairly and unjustly by certain people who couldn't handle being called to account to do their jobs, and reported the accounting as bullying. If you want more details, read this post. As I asked before:


If you could help get "Nicole Czarnecki (aka, "Nickidewbear")" at http://www.facebook.com/nicoleczarneckiakanickidewbear restored, I'd appreciate it. You were able to bug certain people... when I needed help and reaching out to... I know that you can certainly rally for Facebook to restore http://www.facebook.com/nicoleczarneckiakanickidewbear, as I myself am trying to do...


So, if you follow and befriend me on YouTubeFacebook (with the new, backup page at present), and Twitterplease do what you did during my time of need... and kindly bug Facebook in the same way. Thank you, and Merry Christmas, L'Hanukkah Tovah v'Shabbat Shalom, and Happy New Year.

Getting My Old Facebook Page Restored, And I Don't Think That There's Just a Bug...

If you could help get "Nicole Czarnecki (aka, "Nickidewbear")" at http://www.facebook.com/nicoleczarneckiakanickidewbear restored, I'd appreciate it. You were able to bug certain people at Chapelgate (who are a major part of why I never want to talk about or go to Chapelgate again) when I needed help and reaching out to (which they certainly did not give, and in fact gave me quite the opposite of-- in other words, negative and unhelpful outreach, to generously say the least). I know that you can certainly rally for Facebook to restore http://www.facebook.com/nicoleczarneckiakanickidewbear, as I myself am trying to do. I have already sent them three e-mails generously explaining that there may be a bug involved; but I think that those certain people unjustly and unfairly reported that page. My only vindication concerning them, meanwhile, is that G-d is just and will rebuke them in time.

So, if you follow and befriend me on YouTubeFacebook (with the new, backup page at present), and Twitterplease do what you did during my time of need when I still affiliated with a certain church and kindly bug Facebook in the same way. Thank you, and Merry Christmas, L'Hanukkah Tovah v'Shabbat Shalom, and Happy New Year.

Christmas Isn't A Time To Forsake the Truth For "Good Tidings"...

In fact, truth is a good tiding. Too often we forget that what came is "[w]oe to those who call evil good, and good evil; Who put darkness for light, and light for darkness; Who put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!" Remember that "He is despised and rejected by men, A Man of sorrows and acquainted with grief. And we hid, as it were, our faces from Him; He was despised, and we did not esteem Him. " For "In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it."


The darkness and those of darkness do not want the truth and light. They don't want to comprehend them. For "[y]et the LORD has not given [them] a heart to perceive and eyes to see and ears to hear, to this very day." That doesn't mean truth is to be forsaken:

Isaiah 43:8-9

New King James Version (NKJV)
8 Bring out the blind people who have eyes,
      And the deaf who have ears.
       9 Let all the nations be gathered together,
      And let the people be assembled.
      Who among them can declare this,
      And show us former things?
      Let them bring out their witnesses, that they may be justified;
      Or let them hear and say, “It is truth.” 



Every forsaker of truth will be repaid:



Psalm 69:22-23

New King James Version (NKJV)

 22 Let their table become a snare before them,
         And their well-being a trap.
 23 Let their eyes be darkened, so that they do not see;
         And make their loins shake continually.



And 



Psalm 118:22

New King James Version (NKJV)

 22 The stone which the builders rejected
         Has become the chief cornerstone.



Also as written:



Luke 20:13-18

New King James Version (NKJV)
13 “Then the owner of the vineyard said, ‘What shall I do? I will send my beloved son. Probably they will respect him when they see him.’ 14 But when the vinedressers saw him, they reasoned among themselves, saying, ‘This is the heir. Come, let us kill him, that the inheritance may be ours.’ 15 So they cast him out of the vineyard and killed him. Therefore what will the owner of the vineyard do to them? 16 He will come and destroy those vinedressers and give the vineyard to others.”
And when they heard it they said, “Certainly not!”
17 Then He looked at them and said, “What then is this that is written:


      ‘ The stone which the builders rejected
      Has become the chief cornerstone’?

 18 Whoever falls on that stone will be broken; but on whomever it falls, it will grind him to powder.”

Coincidence? Well, Co-Incidence Alright, But...

That the fourth and fitfth Yamim L'Hanukkah (Kislev 28/December 23-24 and Kislev 29/December 24-25) coincide with Christmas Eve and Christmas Day is not random. Christmas Eve and Day also coincide with Shabbat (Kislev 28-29) and Yom Rishon v'Havdalah, v'Shabbat l'Notzrim (cf. Yochanahn 20:1, 9; Acts 20:7, 1 Corinthians 16:2). Just think about that for a minute, whether or not you're Meshichi.

A Short Hanukkah Story...

A Jewish boy was on the corner of a busy street in a busy city. This Jewish boy was poor and begging for money. Most of what he got was either persecution, begging, or just no money. Some gave him money, but one  who gave him money mercilessly persecuted him while giving him the money. "Here, Jew. Here's your money. Poor boy; is that all you ever think about?" Then the persecutor just walked away.

People who begged the boy for money were beggars themselves, begging for some of the money which he'd be given or asking how he'd begged. Then came a disheveled-looking, long-haired-seeming man in dirty-appearing  clothes begging for money. The boy, not knowing what else to do, gave him the money. Then the disheveled-looking man held out sevenfold the money that had been given to him. "Can I keep this?"

The boy nodded. Then the man held out tenfold of the sevenfold. "Can I keep this?" The boy nodded, more surprised than at first. A hundredfold of the tenfolded sevenfold appeared in the man's hand. Then the man gave the boy the money.

"Yeshua!" The boy cried. Then the man walked away, and the boy ran home with enough money to live for at least the next couple of days.

I'm Not Trying To Get Attention When I Write About Depression and Suicidal Thoughts, and Loneliness In General...

What amazes me is that I think that people think that I am fucking kidding or trying to get attention when I say that I'm tempted to commit suicide. I wasn't kidding when I ended up in Sheppard Pratt in April 2006, was I? I wasn't kidding when I tried to attempt suicide in 1998 (when I was eight years old), was I? And when I called the Suicide Hotline tonight, I hung up twice-- I wasn't going to be able to tell them what's going on, at least without crying and bursting into incoherence while crying. I also couldn't tell them because I'm a Christian and they might not be able to understand some of what I'm going through.


Also, my mom calling my psychiatrist isn't going to help a lot-- he's not a Christian and (as I've told him and others) there are issues that the Sertraline and Abilify can't touch. I even got so desperate as to try Match.com to find the one for me-- one of my Hanukkah and Christmas wishes. Not only was Match.com a violation of 1 Corinthians 7, anyway-- since Christians are to follow the mitzvah that states, "Are you loosed from [without] a [spouse]? Do not seek a [spouse]."; but Match.com just wasn't worth what I need in a man, anyway. Remember, I have Cerebral Palsy, OCD/Anxiety/Depression, Irritable Bowel Syndrome, mild ADD, and possible Aspberger's. Also, my family has ilks that are (as I will continue to point out that Mia Danilowicz, part of the ilks actually so kindly proves about herself) "fucking psycho" (Todah, Mia; v'l'Hanukkah Tovah Tikatevi.). I need a man who can provide for and deal with all of and every aspect of me (including my medical and family history.).


PS I'm still waiting for that call from Cathy Dallwig about transporting disabled members to Chapelgate. Please kindly email her for me (as Charles Polk already did; and I know that Charles Polk is one out of few who actually care for me), and bug @ChapelgateNews on Twitter for me. I'm unkindly not leaving their church, no matter how much they don't want a disabled Jew with divorced parents and a crazy dad to not worship G-d among them.
