Old Jews Telling Jokes
Non-Stop Laughter off Broadway

Humor has always been considered Jewish Novocain. So, if you simply want to laugh and set aside your “tsuris”, we recommend heading right to the off–Broadway production of  the hilarious Old Jews Telling Jokes currently at the Westside Theater, 407 West 43rd St. in NYC.. Created by Peter Gethers and Daniel Okrent, Old Jews Telling Jokes showcases five actors in a revue that pays tribute to and reinvents classic jokes and one–liners of the past and present. The show also features comic songs as well as tributes to some comedy icons of the past. The production is based on the website that actually inspired the show: Old If you’ve ever had a mother or visited a doctor – Old Jews Telling Jokes will make you smile. The jokes span the passages of everyday life – personal, business, love, marriage, and old age. And as others have qvelled: “You’ll laugh ‘til you plotz”. Be aware, however,  that some of the humor is R–rated.

Separating Egg Whites/Yolks

An EGGciting Internet craze on YouTube! A new way to separate egg whites/yolks using an empty plastic soda bottle. We saw it demonstrated, live, at a cooking demonstration and LOVED the idea The original video is in Japanese − just watch the pictures as it is self explanatory! The second video is in English and is a "take" on the original. We are posting this one just in case you need further explanation. Wish that we would have thought of this – so easy and so clever!
