I'm arranging a last-minute trip to LA because my brother Pablofisherman has taken a turn for the worse. Luckily, once I arrive I'll be surrounded by multitudinous supportive cousins, so I just have to suffer the flights by myself. Er. I wish. The flights are close to full, because of the upcoming holiday. Apparently there are quite a number of Israelis who travel to the USA to avoid celebrate Jewish holidays there.
I wish you all a Shana Tova v'Metuka (Happy and Sweet New Year).
