    This is always a nice way to celebrate Passover week and Easter, I think.

    Or Ben Hur and the Ten Commandments. Hey, I don’t know if that sounds like a band or the new movie by Baz Luhrmann (sp?, you know I’m too lazy to look it up.)

    Rick, that sounds like a fantastic band name. I think after next year’s Passover Seder I’ll suggest a family viewing of The Ten Commandments. This year my mom made shortribs braised in a bottle of Manichevitz. We still had a bit leftover to drink and my mom (who is not much of a drinker) declared how good it was. Strangely, I’ve always enjoyed wine that tastes exactly like grape juice/grape soda.

    Then you’d be right at home at a little General Baptist church’s Easter communion. Welch’s.

    Do I get to wear a fabulous hat or Easter bonnet? If so, I’m in.

    Now that I think about it after never having thought about it before, The Ten Commandments is all about Passover. Ben Hur is about Easter. Charlton Heston was Bi. Old and New Testament. Can I get an NRA?

    I think you and I should watch both one Sunday. I’ll bring some wine and maybe wear my Sunday best.

    Erica
    Last week my sister face-booked a scan of a snap-shot of our family posing for an Easter portrait before going to church in 1966. If I can figure out how, I’ll share it.

    Please do. I have your phone number and I will try to make a hangout happen before I start my new job.

    Can it be lunchy? I’m working now from 4:30 to 1:00 am.

  11. Erica Braverman on March 27th, 2013 at 2:57 am

    Sure. I’ll take a look at my schedule and give you a ring once I’ve got dates that work.

    Erica, you are not the only member of the flocking community who has a taste for the wine that tastes like grape juice. Last time I visited Cooper Renner in one of his RV-camper deals, I spied a bottle of Manischewitz in his refrigerator.
