Another Recipe: The Waste-System Drink

~1 cup of organic cranberry juice
~1 cup of water
~2 tbsp (1/8 cups) of elderberry juice
~4 tbsp (1/4 cups) of milk of magnesia

I put in the milk, the elderberry juice, the water, and the cranberry juice in that order; but the order is up to you. Nonetheless, you have to mix them together like I did (whether you stir, shake, or blend it).

By the way, it tastes like prune juice and works well for people like me with IBS. As for elderberry juice, I hear that that's supposed to support immune-system health. Meanwhile, cranberry juice helps excretory functions. That is all. You're welcome.

More Than Blogging, Etc.: Learning To Cook

Instead-of-Quinoa-and-Soup (IQS) Pasta (I came up with this when I realized that we had no quinoa—or at least any that I could access at the time—,the chicken broth would not drain from the pasta—and I thus could not make chicken-broth-and-celery-soup; and I used measures based on the containers and packaging for each of the products—e.g., 1/2 cup of shredded cheese makes for one serving of cheese
  1. 1 bag of gluten-free, organic pasta
  2. 1 container of organic chicken broth
  3. 2 cups of organic shredded Parmesan cheese
  4.  ~1 cup of organic sauce
  5. Organic olive oil
  6. 3-4 sticks of organic celery, chopped


  1. Cook the pasta in the chicken broth instead of water, as instructed to do so on the bag.
  2. Put cheese and olive oil into bowl.
  3. Put in pasta (which does not need to be drained) and sauce in bowl.
  4. Put celery pieces in.
  5. Mix thoroughly.
  6. Enjoy!
Makes 3-4 servings (i.e., 1-2 servings per person. e.g., I had two servings; Mom may just want one).

Autoenhanced of Borlumiere's "HaTikvah" Extended



Seriously the most-powerful version that I have ever heard. All I did was extend and autoenhance it. If only a live orchestra played it!

Is There Actually a Beauty In Marrying On Shabbat (Originally On Twitter)?

To get married on Shabbat is actually a nice idea. Marriage represent G-d's covenant with Israel. So does Shabbat--e.g., the day of rest. As someone who married on a Yom Shabbat opined, "I was married on a Saturday evening in summer, just at the beginning of sunset. We wanted to honor Shabbat, and so we did Havdalah first. Our officiant was very traditional and expressed his qualms about starting before sundown. Ultimately, we did the cocktail hour first and pushed the ceremony back as late as we could, and he acquiesced. It wasn't fully dark yet, but it felt like a respectful, if not fully halachic, compromise on both sides. I think that for less observant (or non-observant Jews), that kind of conversation and creativity is more important than observing strict halachic rules and missing the beauty and richness of the tradition, but then again, I'm not frum. For what it's worth, it was the most "Jewish" wedding that I or any of my guests had ever attended. Everyone told me how beautiful and moving it was, and many of our guests asked numerous questions about the traditions, rituals, and prayers they had encountered."

Besides, where in Tanakh can one read that one can't marry on Shabbat--let alone enter into marital contracts on Shabbat or write on Shabbat? Furthermore, the Bride of Yeshua, Heaven as Eternal Shabbat...shalom!
